Tom Brady quarterback of the Tampa Bay Buccaneers has made the Superbowl for the 10th time in his career, and that’s not even the kicker he’s not only achieved this feat with a new team, but he is 43 YEARS OLD!
Tom Brady, who had an illustrious 20-year career with the New England Patriots (the team who drafted him 199th overall in the 2000 NFL Draft). Tom and the New England Patriots went to 9 Superbowls in total winning 6 and losing 3.
After spending 2 decades with the same team, Tom searched for a new challenge in year 21. He had joined the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in the 2020 offseason under HC Bruce Arians.
Brady had a monumental task ahead of him. He had no preseason games, no OTA’s, and no training camp, yet despite all this and despite being in a completely new environment surrounded by new personnel he showed them exactly why he is the greatest of all time.
Tampa Bay had gone 7-9 the previous year, and Brady knew, precisely what this team was capable of. It hasn’t been an easy road; they got blown out twice by a division rival, they had injuries at key positions, and on top of that, he was in an entirely new conference. Many think the NFC is a lot more challenging than the AFC, (Tom’s previous “conference” with the Patriots).
People said he was done, they said he had fallen off the cliff, and would never see the same success he had previously experienced with the Patriots, but people seem to forget one thing… this is Tom Brady we’re talking about!
His leadership, intangibles and winning mentality completely changed the Tampa Bay organization.
I could go on about all his accolades and his personal achievements (I’m a big fan of his) but what Tom Brady has done this season has been nothing short of amazing.
He is the undeniable GOAT of the NFL and one of the greatest athletes I have ever had the pleasure of witnessing.
