Coach Weis is second to none in terms of preparation and getting you ready. Coach Weis is very straightforward. He definitely gets out of his players what he wants to get out of them -- nothing more and nothing less. With coach, you always know where you need to be and when you need to be there. We're going with him. We're riding the ship and we know he's going to take us in the right direction.

Before you know it I'll be playing my last home game at Notre Dame Stadium and trying to figure out what I want to do.

Everyone knows Brady's always had the arm. He's always had the physical talent. He's always been a smart quarterback. But once Coach Weis got here, he kind of instilled a mentality in Brady to let him know he's got that skill.
