We’re playing Green Bay on a Sunday night, and we were in no-huddle, and we’re going fast, and I called a bad play — I called a run play into a blitz," O’Brien said. "And in that moment, [Brady] changed the play, he changed the protection, he moved two receivers, he made the correct ‘Mike’ call for the protection, he signaled the receiver out to the left with what route to run, and he threw a touchdown pass to that guy. So he did about six things with about 10 seconds on the play clock to create a touchdown.
There is always some uncertainty on opening day because they’ve been preparing for us a long time, we’ve been preparing for them a long time. Hopefully we’re doing a lot of things that they’re not working on this week, but that’s kind of the advantage of opening day. And vice versa, there’s an advantage for them. How that all evens out, we’ll see.
