Tom vs. Time: Brady’s Top 5 Quotes [VIDEO]
The epilogue to season one of Tom Brady's Facebook series Tom vs. Time had a few quotes that raised our eyebrows. Brady described periods of his life as sometimes "cyclical and monotonous." He talked candidly about how he no longer cares about what people (read as "the media") say about him. Brady says that he cares about the things in life that really matter: family, health, life and death. This seems to be a direct reference to the health of his mother, who has been battling cancer.
Here are our Top 5 favorite quotes from today's Tom vs. Time epilogue. The last two will be the ones that will garner the most conversation:
- "There's nothing I like about Ohio State." Brady takes an opportunity to take a shot at Michigan's arch rival. The funny thing is, you can tell that Brady is legit annoyed by the fact that the fighter jet had THE Ohio State University's logo on it. Nearly 20 years out of college, the fire and competitive edge still boils within him.
- "I would love to play five more years. I'm not ready to say that I'm done because I don't feel that I am." Brady offers some insight into his retirement plans. He sticks with the same plan he's been speaking about for the past several years
- "I think the last eight years of my career have been better than my first 10." An interesting argument that would make for a great ESPN debate. Clearly, Brady feels he's like a fine wine.
- "The last couple of years, a lot of parts about football weren't enjoyable when they should have been." If you are a Patriots fan, this quote sticks out as being disturbing. Is this a slap at Coach Belichick? Mr. Kraft? Teammates? Coaches Brady admits that part of it is his fault, but that leaves the OTHER part. Who is responsible for the other part that can sometimes rob TB12 of his enjoyment of football?
- "I think anytime you're together with people for a long period of time, relationships ebb and flow." This is another troubling quote. To me, this screams Bill Belichick. No one else has spent more time with Brady during his time on the Patriots. To me, Brady is basically acknowledging that everything has not been peaches and cream at Patriot Place. Maybe that's perfectly normal, but saying it out loud is not something that Brady has done very much over his career.
