A topic of conversation this week revolves around Tom Brady’s legacy and what another Super Bowl title would mean for the Patriots quarterback.
After winning three, there were two straight losses to the New York Giants, so the laser focus for Brady is all about winning this game, because this team can’t be measured until the confetti flies in Arizona.
“I’m proud of what we’ve been able to accomplish. I hope the best is yet to come, but we gotta earn it,” Brady said.
Brady is as competitive and driven as they come. After his career started as an underdog, as a sixth round pick, he now has a chance to join Joe Montana and Terry Bradshaw as the only quarterbacks in NFL history to win four titles.
“I never in my wildest dreams could I ever imagine this. You know in a lot of ways, I still feel like I’m still trying to earn it. So I still feel like it’s my first and I wanna work hard to earn the respect of my teammates and coaches and try to go out there and be the best quarterback that I can be for our team,” he said.
And that’s what continues to motivate Brady – it isn’t his record. But it’s impossible to ignore what another championship would mean to his resume.
“It’s about winning this game. That’s what this one is all about. I’m trying to envision just winning and being on the trophy stand and that’s what I think about,” he said.
Win or lose, Tom Brady will go down as one of the greatest quarterbacks of all time.
