Tom Brady is a GOAT QB and many teams would love to have him fling the pigskin for them. That is apparently not the case all around the league, but Brady only uses it for motivation.
While talking to LeBron James and others on HBO’s The Shop, Brady had a lot to say, but he didn’t namedrop anyone. Calling someone out by name isn’t Brady’s style, but he said that the team knows who they are. Even though it sticks with him, Brady uses it as motivation to drive him.
“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 one of the best to ever play the game of football, but his talents were apparently overlooked in, at least, one instance. That seems to be okay with Brady as he is able to talk about it now, but he’s not calling that team out specifically.
In case you’re wondering, Derrick Carr was willing to fight Brady because he thought that the GOAT QB called him a “motherf*cker.” Brady assures that he wasn’t talking about him.
As for Brady’s current career projections, his personal trainer estimates that he has another two seasons left in him at this point.
