This morning, per our buddy Bart Hubbuch over at the New York Post (via Pro Football Talk), we have an account of Sanchez’s response to the chatter earlier in the week between the AFC East archrivals. The QB joked that it was a “setup”, then gave his two cents.
“No, I love the Patriots,” Sanchez said, smiling. “I love Tom.”
Sanchez then turned to a camera and said, “I love you, Tom.” … Not sure quite how to take that one, and I’m not sure whether there’s some connection between the two California-bred quarterbacks. But it is clear that Sanchez wasn’t jumping in this fray.
“[Brady’s comment] doesn’t matter,” Sanchez said. “It’s neither here nor
there. We respect the heck out of them. I think he’s a great
quarterback, it’s a great franchise, and we need to bring our best when
we play them — every time.”
