Harrison: It didn't feel like the old Brady

By ESPNBoston.com

Former Patriots safety Rodney Harrison was on ESPN Chicago Radio 1000 on Wednesday and discussed a few topics related to the Patriots' Super Bowl loss (listen HERE):

* Whose fault was the missed connection between Tom Brady and Wes Welker in the fourth quarter?: “You can say ‘That’s a catch Wes normally makes’ or you can say ‘You know what, Tom Brady should have hit him in stride.’ The fact is, it didn’t just come down to that play. They made so many mistakes in the first half that carried over to the second half.”

* Brady was off: “Tom probably could have done a better job decision making. ... It didn’t feel like the old Tom Brady when I played with him in that fourth quarter.”

* Thinks Rob Gronkowski "disrespected himself" by dancing at a team party after the loss: “I guarantee you this, if Willie McGinest, Tedy Bruschi, Larry Izzo, Richard Seymour or myself had been at that party, (Gronkowski) probably would have got his head rung. There’s no reason for that to happen.”
