Brady, who was drafted by the New England Patriots back in 2000, won 6 of his Super Bowl rings with the franchise. Alongside Head Coach Bill Belichick, the phenom established one of the greatest NFL dynasties of all time. 

But many still doubted Brady. People saw him as a system quarterback who could only excel if the circumstances were in his favor. Signing with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers ahead of the 2020 season, Brady had the chance to prove his doubters wrong.

“I love that Kevin’s here. We couldn’t get The Rock, so Kevin got to show up,” Brady joked. But Kevin Hart wasn’t one to stay quiet.

Saying that he still remains a doubter, Hart challenged Brady to go to the Detroit Lions and win the franchise its first Super Bowl. 

“Tom, everybody’s all on you with this Super Bowl hype. Do you want to make me a believer? Go to Detroit. Do it in Detroit. Go to Detroit and win a Super Bowl,” Hart said.

“If you can do that, then I believe it Until then, it’s a hoax. I’m not a believer. I’m not on the Brady train and I think Tampa rigged the whole thing,” he added.

Brady, though, laughed it off, just as everyone else on the call did. Entering the 2021 NFL season Tom Brady has only one true competitor. And that is Brady himself.

The quarterback will be 44 by the time the next season rolls around, and he’s already stated his goal for the upcoming season. Super Bowl #8 is all that’s on Brady’s mind.
