The untouchable feeling that Brady generates is something he truly backs up on the field. He goes on to describe Brady almost as a ‘gangsta’ and an in-your-face competitor. Many of his fellow players have praised his football IQ and his consistent pursuit of achieving greatness in all of the sports. The desire to play for a different team after almost 20 years with one team to prove himself and his abilities is unheard of.

Many greats in sports are not willing to bet their legacies on the line to test themselves and their chances. Brady has considered himself the underdog from the time he was the No. 199 pick. In the 2000 NFL Draft, many teams like the San Francisco 49ers didn’t consider him but the QB position is more than that. Many team scouts were so high on the physicality bandwagon that no one took a chance on him. But despite lacking ‘mobility’, coach Belichick did take a chance on him.

Whenever anyone messes up with an ultra-competitive personality, they usually take it personally. Brady did take those snubs personally and his 7 Super Bowl Championship rings are evidence of him proving everyone wrong. He achieves and creates a career repertoire that is unlike anyone who will ever come to pass. The player who did make scouts reevaluate their own parameters for scouting, and his abbreviations read ‘TB12’.
