Tom Brady Opens Up on His Decision to Join Tampa Bay Buccaneers after NFC Championship Win

January 25, 2021 6:57 am

When Tom Brady signed a two-year deal with Tampa Bay Buccaneers, not many believed he would enjoy much success in the NFC. The 43-year-old ended a two-decade association with New England Patriots, with whom he had won 6 Super Bowl titles.

There was a lot of pressure on HC Bruce Arians and his coaching staff to at least make the NFL Playoffs this season. Well, at this point, it’s safe to say, the Pirates are doing alright.

The Buccaneers sealed an emphatic 26-31 win over Aaron Rodgers-led Green Bay Packers in the NFC Championship Game at Lambeau Field on Sunday. In doing so, they booked a spot at this year’s Super Bowl LV. The season finale will be played at their home stadium two weeks later.

But Brady was not ready to get ahead of himself, as he maintained that he and his teammates remained focused on the goal at hand.

“They’ve worked really hard to get to this point. It’s a tough game, had a few tough games in a row, and the next one will be really tough too. But we know what we’re playing for, we got two weeks to prepare to beat a great opponent. It’s going to be an exciting couple of weeks for us,” Brady said at the post-game presser.

We’re not sure what to make of these comments from Mr. Brady.
