Tom Brady looked at the scoreboard and it read 31-3, but he knew the game wasn’t over. Last Sunday against the 49ers, Brady showed the fire some thought he may have lost. Brady was under constant pressure, the running backs were fumbling, the defense was fighting but turnovers put them in tough positions. Everything was wrong, then Brady took over and launched a comeback the left the game tied 31-31 in the fourth quarter. Brady left it all out there; he got in a zone and willed his team back into the game. The special teams and Kyle Arrington killed the chance to win in two plays, but for Brady he was that kid in 2003, when no game was untouchable. The Patriots lost but that isn’t the message Brady is sending, he is saying that the loss is a learning tool, but he still doesn’t like to lose. Brady spoke about turning the page and moving on to Jacksonville. "I don’t think you get over any loss you ever had. I probably remember every single one," Brady said. "That’s part of being mentally tough, is to move forward and learn from your mistakes, understand what you need to do better. That’s what the last two days have been about, as well as getting ready for Jacksonville and the different things that they do to try to screw up offenses," according to Mike Whitmer of the Boston Globe. "I don’t think losing is the key to that. I think learning from your mistakes, whether you win or lose, is important," he said. "Progressing over the course of a season, through practices and games, and realizing what you do well and what you don’t do well, the final score, I don’t think, really does the trick. It’s your ability to accelerate through the course of a season, and not really level off or regress." "The other night we do some things really well and we do plenty of things that were the reason why we lost. I think it comes back to, a lot of times, eliminating turnovers. We had four turnovers, and you lose the turnover battle, a lot of times you lose the game," Brady said. "We have to protect the ball this week, so that’s a big point of emphasis, and hopefully we can do a better job."     var switchTo5x=true; stLight.options({publisher:''});
