One leftover from the Patriots-Bills broadcast, via Johnston (on Tom Brady): "Just unbelievable, what he's been able to do throughout his career. I don't think he gets the credit, because he's been the one constant in New England and the pieces have kind of moved around him, and he's been able to win with a Randy Moss/Wes Welker combination, [Aaron] Hernandez and [Rob] Gronkowski as the tight ends. They're still trying to find out what is it going to be this year. ... He's seen everything throughout his career. He's going to be unflappable. Just his poise, his decision-making. When it's all said and done, it's going to be hard not to say he's the best of all-time. He's going to be right up there in that discussion."
