The date has already been circulated on the calendar by many people in New England and beyond. Ticket prices for Tom Brady’s Week 4 return to Foxboro are out of sight.
So what is Brady feeling about the game of the century?
The Tampa Bay quarterback, who celebrated his team’s Super Bowl victory at the White House on Tuesday, joined Jim Gray for a special SiriusXM Town Hall event that airs on SiriusXM’s Mad Dog Sports radio channel at 6 p.m. Wednesday on a range of topics. Began to discuss, which includes a lot of them. Bollywood matchup with your former team.
Brady, who won six championships with the Patriots over a period of two decades, moved to free agency last year after failing to keep pace with Bill Belichick and the team. He began by saying that he was going back to Foxboro for “the last time in my career”.
He said, “There’s a lot to come between now and then, and obviously I know the challenge of beating a great team like that, a great organization, great players, so many friends who are still in the team who are still on the team.” I have brothers,” he said. . “Unfortunately, we are going to be on different sides of the stadium this time.
“I have been very introduced to playing in the stadium. You know, we’ll have to go to training camp first and see where we’re going and then finish the first three weeks of the year, but I’m sure it’s going to be a great opportunity for me to go. Back to a place I know as well as anyone. It will be a good day for football.”
Brady, who turned 44 in August, asked Gray if that sport would have too much on his shoulders, given all the expectation for him to perform at such a high level, and going back to a position he had won six. won the championship?
“I’m not gullible over the fact that there are some marquee games that you always see during the season, there’s a matchup of places where people versus people,” Brady said. “You know, brothers playing each other, or going to former Super Bowl teams — when we used to play with the Giants in the regular season, it always felt like it was a little bit like when I was with the Patriots. So, naturally, there’s just more buildup, but at the end of the day, it’s going to be a game where we’re going to prepare like we’re preparing.
“Our team at the Bucks has done some really cool things over the last season, which I really want to see how committed we are to improving those processes. I thought we were really good at the end of the season, And I thought we were still an ascending football team.”
In an extensive interview on a range of topics including his future (he said it was possible for him to play after 45 as long as he felt he was playing at championship level) as well as the future of Aaron Rodgers (he expects to be in 2021). would play in), Brady was also asked about the teams he received in free agency.
Gray pumped Brady into revealing the mystery team called to move in with another quarterback, and “keep up with that mother…”, only Brady didn’t bite.
“There are things personal to me that are going to continue to inspire me,” he said. “They know who they are… that’s fine. Everyone has a choice. I guess what you realize is that there aren’t as many smart people as you think. That’s all. That’s the reality. I think if you said, ‘Hey, you have a chance to get Wayne Gretzky on your team, or you have a chance to have Michael Jordan on your team, it’s going to be a no brainer.’ … ‘Oh, we don’t need that, no thanks. They were good.’
“In my mind, I’m thinking, ‘Okay, let me show the teams what they’re missing.’ Also, let me prove to the team that bet on me, and the team that really showed that they really want me, and are committed to me, that I’m not going to let them down.
