Tom Brady had something to say during The Shop as he opened up in a big way on the HBO show. He made reference to a team, but he didn’t namedrop them. Brady made sure to say that they know who they are.
Another comment from Brady made reference to this team picking someone else over him. He referred to this other guys as “a motherf*cker.” Derek Carr already said he would be willing to fight Brady over that, but Brady swears he wasn’t talking about him.
While speaking to Sirius XM, Brady explained his vulgar comment. He said that getting passed up was more motivation for him, and it doesn’t appear that he has any sour grapes over the situation.
“There’s private things for me that are going to remain motivational for me. They know who they are … it’s fine. Everyone has a choice to choose. I think what you realize is, there’s not as many smart people as you think. That’s just the reality. I think it’d be a no-brainer if you said, ‘Hey, you’ve got a chance to get Wayne Gretzky on your team, or you got a chance to have Michael Jordan on your team.’ … ‘Oh, we don’t need him, no thanks. We’re good.'”
“In my mind, I’m kind of thinking, ‘OK, let me go show those teams what they’re missing.’ At the same time, let me go prove to the team that did bet on me, and the team that really showed they really wanted me, and committed to me, that I’m not going to let them down.”
Tom Brady is still regarded as a GOAT QB by many people, no matter what team turned him down. That will give him plenty of drive for the years to come as he strives to get another Super Bowl ring around his finger. According to his personal trainer, Brady has a couple of seasons left.
