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.
Tom Brady was all smiles as he addressed the media personnel via Zoom call following today’s win over the Packers. The three-time NFL MVP was asked to give an insight into what moved him to come to Tampa Bay in the offseason. Here’s what he replied.
He said, “When BA got here last year, you know, there was a lot of great things that were happening and a lot of great young players and I just loved it. I made the decision and love coming to work every day with this group of guys.”
“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.
