Tom Brady dismisses Texans DL Smith's suspicious comments

What did New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady think about Houston Texans defensive lineman Antonio Smith's remarks saying he was "very suspicious" of how the Patriots' halftime adjusments led to 27 points in the second half?

Brady didn't think much of Smith's accusatory tone.

"You know, truthfully, we just played a little bit better in the second half," Brady told WEEI "We've kind of been through a lot of this before. I don't really think much of it, truthfully. I just kind of have moved on. I've already started work on the Cleveland Browns, trying to find a way to play those guys better and get off to a better start."

Smith thought something was awry when the Patriots quickly adjusted to new Texans defensive wrinkles.

However, the Patriots, like all teams, study teams in-game and tweak their game plan.

"I just think it will be a big coincidence if that just happened by chance," Smith said. "I don't know for sure, but I just know it was something that we practiced this week. Either teams are spying on us or scouting us."

Patriots coach Bill Belichick had no reaction to what Smith said.

"Yeah, I saw them," he said. "I don't have any comment on them. That's a league matter."
