The New England Patriots, who lost to the Denver Broncos in the 2013 AFC Championship Game, are aiming to better in 2014.

The New England Patriots are aiming to be better in 2014. 

Patriots Football Weekly's Andy Hart touched on this subject in his June 9 article

"Sandwiched between work on the OTA practice field and a team meeting Tom Brady met with reporters following the Myra Kraft Community MVP Awards at Gillette Stadium on Monday. 

"Appropriately in the midst of his work day New England's franchise quarterback talked about the work he and his teammates are putting in this spring with an eye on the long-term prize.

"'I would say we're far from midseason form,' Brady said of the early stages of the process. 'We just got started. We're gonna have a lot more work here. We have two good solid weeks and quite a bit of training camp. A long way to go. A lot of practices.

"'The guys are working hard. That's the best thing. There's a lot of great effort.'

"While the Patriots have the most stable organization in the game under the guidance of owner Robert Kraft, head coach Bill Belichick and Brady, there is still the annual process of reestablishing the team's spot within within the competitive hierarchy of the NFL.

"'I've been lucky to really be in the same offensive system my whole career and coached by the same coach. There is nobody that I'd rather play for, Mr. Kraft, and no other coach I'd rather play for than Coach Belichick,' Brady said.

"'Because I think we've got the greatest chance to win every year. That's (a) really important part of playing the game. That's why we're out here working hard. That's why we pay the price to go out and win games, it's not really for individual recognition, it's for team success.'

"'I think when you're part of this program whatever individual achievement or goals you may have for yourself, those always come second to whatever the team is doing. Because there is one thing that matters -- two things -- wins and losses.

"'We have to get back to winning like we're capable. We feel like putting in a good offseason gets us off to a great start. By no means is there anything guaranteed but we do know if you work hard and you put yourself in good position with this part of the year you'll be ready to start training camp. That's really what's on the horizon for us.'"  

Brady also said the bottom line in the NFL is winning, regardless of what the naysayers think or say, per Boston.com: 

"A week after Brady was 'demoted' to one of the 'Bottom 27ers' in the NFL by ESPN.com's Sam Monson, Brady spoke about the only stat that really matters.

"'You can't sit here and compare one year to another year, or compare this player to that player, I think winning games is the most important thing; certainly for this organization,' Brady said with some uncharacteristic emotion in response to a question from Comcast Sports New England's Tom E. Curran at (a) team charity event.

"'When you come here, you learn that pretty quickly -- whatever matters to you as an individual, it's far distant to what the team goals are. And the team goals are one thing -- to score more points than the other team.'

"Those who live in the real world of the NFL and not the fantasy world of stat-mavens and Sabermetricians only pay attention to one thing, Brady said.

"'I think people watch games on TV because there is a scoreboard. I think that's what it is all about. If there was no scoreboard, then people wouldn't tune in and watch,' Brady added. 'There's only one stat that matters and that's because the competition in the NFL is very high; extremely high on a daily basis.'

"Juding Brady based solely on wins brings mixed results since the Patriots walked off the field with their 24-21 victory over the (Philadelphia) Eagles in Super Bowl XXXIX in Jacksonville. The Patriots under Brady have won 99 games in the eight full seasons he's played since.

 

"But New England is only 4-6 in its past 10 playoff games."  

The 36-year-old Brady is entering his 15th NFL season -- all with the Patriots. He has passed for 49,149 yards, 359 touchdowns and 134 interceptions on a 95.7 passer rating, per ESPN stats
