Brady refuses to compare 2017 Patriots to 'magical' clubs

(TSX / STATS) -- Expectations understandably are high for the defending Super Bowl champion New England Patriots, but just be careful when addressing that topic with quarterback Tom Brady.

Brady insisted on Tuesday that he won't be comparing the potential of this season's Patriots team to any of the franchise's past clubs -- including five that won a Super Bowl and one that nearly went undefeated.

"It is really unfair to set expectations. To me, in my mind, it's really a setup," the 40-year-old Brady said during his weekly interview on WEEI's Kirk and Callahan program. "You're talking about some magical years that we've had that may never be duplicated again."
