With the 2nd Circuit of the US Court of Appeals rejecting Tom Brady’s request for an en banc rehearing of his Deflategate case with the NFL, it makes it highly unlikely that the Patriots quarterback will play in the first month of the season. His four game suspension is likely to be served at the start of the 2016 season. That means he’ll miss the Patriots first game against the Bills in Week 4. One guy who is not happy about that is Bills DT Marcell Dareus.
“I hate that Brady’s not going to be there,” said Dareus in an appearance on NFL Total Access. “But when he comes back… it’s on.”
Buffalo’s second matchup with New England will be at Ralph Wilson Stadium in Week 8. If the Bills win the first meeting sans Brady, Dareus said he’ll take the victory, but it won’t feel the same.
“If we win, all right, we win. But I don’t feel like I really won until I beat the guy,” he said. “I love playing against Brady. I get up for him. I play against him every year, and he knows I’m coming. So for him not to be up there tears me up a little bit. But the second time I see him, I’m going to be excited to play against him. That’s the win we want.”
