BOSTON (WBZ-AM) — Tom Brady claims he doesn't hear the noise but, we know, the Patriots QB knows what his critics are saying.
Consider what he said on CBS after a divisional round win over the Chargers.
"I know everyone thinks we suck, and can't win any games," he said.
Or what Brady told his receiver Chris Hogan on the field after the Pats upset the Chiefs to reach the Super Bowl.
"I'm too old, you're too slow, we got no skilled players, we got no defense, we got nothing," he joked.

Now, Pats are preparing for the Rams. But, last night at Opening Night in Atlanta, a young reporter asked Brady about his critics, and the future Hall of Famer had a Hall of Fame response.
"How are you able to focus despite the negative fanbase? AKA, the haters?" Brady said, re-stating the boy's question. "I don't know, what do we do about the haters? We love 'em. We love 'em, we love 'em back, because we don't hate back. We appreciate it, and we love 'em, and we wish them the best in their life."
Words to live by.
