FOXBORO, Mass. — Tom Brady had a message for Patriots fans Wednesday: Get crackin’.

The quarterback was asked if he had any advice for anyone attending Sunday’s home opener against the Chargers, and Brady got down to brass tacks.

“Start drinking early,” Brady said. “Get rowdy. It’s a 4:15 game, a lot of time to get lubed up. Come out here and cheer for the home team.”

Brady later asked to clarify his comments, noting he wants fans to drink water, stay hydrated and act responsibly.
