The following comes from the book "Belichick and Brady" by Michael Holley and gives a glimpse at the drive to improve that makes Tom Brady great:
Ty Law's team had been miserable: the Jets were 2-10 after a 16-3 loss to the Patriots. The two teams played again, the day after Christmas, and the Patriots walked away with a 10-point victory. One fo the few highlights in the game for the Jets was Law picking off Brady and running seventy-four yards for a touchdown.
A couple of days after the game, Law got a phone call.He recognized the number, the voice, and the question.
"Hey Ty," Brady said. "What did you see on the interception? What did I give away."
Three titles and two MVPs later, he was still searching the way he had when he was trying to take the job from Bledsoe.
"Tom, I played with you longer than anybody over there, right?" Law explained. "It's obvious what you do: You do this exaggerated throwing motion and I knew you were coming back the other way. I played with you long enough to know that. As soon as I saw that motion, it's not a real throwing motion, I just stopped. You threw it right there."
The flaw would be corrected for the play-offs.
