The Internet went wild when Tom Brady debuted a new haircut this week.

As the New England Patriots quarterback addressed reporters at a press conference for the last time before his four-game suspension begins, no one was talking about his suspension — because they could only focus on his hairstyle.

During the press conference, Brady was asked who he thought would fill his void while he was gone.

“We’ve got a lot of really good players, a lot of really good leaders,” Brady said Tuesday. “I think we’ve always done a good job cultivating guys to step in and fill the void. I think we’ll do a great job with that. Between our coaches and our players, we’ve got a lot of great leaders, so I’m very confident in that.”

“We’ll go out and play with a lot of energy and emotion [like] we always do. It will be tough to watch but it will be fun to watch in some ways to see what it looks like when you’re not there. That’s a different perspective. Hopefully I can use that perspective and then come back with better perspective saying, ‘Wow, I really noticed some things that maybe I wouldn’t have seen had I been there.’ So that’s kind of what I’m going to try to do.”
