Rodney Harrison: Patriots QB Tom Brady is out for vengeance

FOXBOROUGH, Mass. -- Former New England Patriots safety Rodney Harrison, now serving as a football studio analyst for NBC, was a guest on sports radio WEEI in Boston on Tuesday and shared his viewpoint on the early season performance of quarterback Tom Brady.

This is what he sees through the best opening two-game stretch of Brady's career: "I always said when you attain a level of success that Tom Brady has attained, you need something to push you. I think this was a mistake by the entire league. I think he's out for vengeance."

Harrison, who was in town for the season opener against the Steelers, relayed to hosts Glenn Ordway, Lou Merloni and Christian Fauria what he witnessed from Brady that night.

"He's not going to ever come out and say anything, but it's a focus that even when I was on the field on opening night, I saw it in his eyes. I saw that special look. I saw that same look that I saw in '03 and '04 in the Super Bowl. It's scary when Tom Brady gets like that."
