New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady, whose team fell one game short of reaching Super Bowl XLVIII, doesn't plan to watch the event.

"I don't have much of a rooting interest, truthfully," Brady said during his weekly WEEI radio appearance. "Those games are hard to watch. I don't really see myself sitting down to enjoy a football game to watch it. Our season's over. Truthfully, I could care less about watching the game. That's pretty much how I feel."

The Patriots lost 26-16 to the Denver Broncos in the AFC Championship on Sunday, knocking them out of contention for the Super Bowl. The Broncos are led by future Hall of Famer Peyton Manning and feature the league's top offense. They will play the Seattle Seahawks, who sport the best defense.

The Seahawks also have a controversy magnet in cornerback Richard Sherman, who stoked a rivalry with San Francisco wide receiver Michael Crabtree in the final seconds of Seattle's 23-17 win.

On that subject, Brady told WEEI: "I don't know him at all. I've watched him play, and he's that kind of guy. I approach the game and I have respect for my opponents. That's the way our team always plays. We win with graciousness, and when we lose, we can do better. Some teams don't always do that or that's not their program. Look, they advanced. The only way to counter that is to beat them, so when you don't win, it's hard to say, but you've just got to shut your mouth and listen to it. Maybe when you get an opportunity down the road maybe that's a source of motivation. But they've got a good team. They've played well all year. They played well at home. That's why they advanced, too."

In Brady's 11 seasons with the Patriots, the team has made five Super Bowl appearances, and won three titles. Brady has been named MVP twice.
