Tom Brady and his endurance make him a winner

An experience of two decades is no mean feat in the NFL. It requires a desire to excel and the courage to perform consistently. These are the qualities that take Tom Brady to a legendary level, believes Bayless. 

What did Aaron Rodgers say when he was asked if he would play until 45? No, no, he said. He said I have a lot of other interests. This is the difference between Aaron and Brady. Brady is flat obsessed with what he’s doing to the detriment of his family situation, to the detriment of his health because he is still out there,” the journalist said. 

He also added, Brady is not playing free of risks as he often gets injuries during the game or in practice. “You say he doesn’t get hit very often, but he gets hit yeah, and now he’s got a finger injury because he banged in somebody’s helmet and it’s his ring finger on the throwing hand and it was bothering him in practice. He gets beat up throughout the year. He’s 45 years old,” Bayless stated
