The Bucs condemned the reigning champions to a 9-31 loss. In doing so, they became the first NFL team in the league’s history to lift a Lombardi Trophy on home soil. This was Brady’s 7th Championship win, his first without Bill Belichick and New England Patriots.

Coach Bruce Arians, Tom Brady, and the rest of the Buccaneers went berserk at the Super Bowl celebration boat parade in Tampa Bay. The 43-year-old made headlines after he was caught on video throwing the Lombardi trophy from one boat to another.

But given the choice again, that’s probably something he wouldn’t do.

Tom Brady made an appearance on the latest segment of Good Morning America. The 3-time NFL MVP recalled his boat parade antics, admitting that the Lombardi trophy haul was probably a bit over the top for multiple reasons.

He said, “There was not a lot going through my mind at that point. That was not smart for a couple of reasons. One is if we drop it, that’s a little bit of a problem.

“But the worst thing that could happen is the edges on that trophy are so sharp — and had those things clipped one of my boys on the other boat, it would have been an ugly, ugly parade.

“I had a lot of fun, and I don’t get to do that — it’s hard to relax and when you’re out in public, and there’s phones, not that I would do anything but it still doesn’t feel like comfortable for me, my personality to have people filming.

“So I tend to just stay at home more and I don’t go out a lot,” Brady said on the show.

The Super Bowl LV MVP will be back to defend the Championship title with the Buccaneers in 2021. He will be joined by teammates, Rob Gronkowski, Leonard Fournette, Mike Evans, Chris Godwin, and Scott Miller.

However, GM Jason Licht is still involved in negotiations with veteran Antonio Brown.
