Not even William Shakespeare can write a script better than this.
Tom Brady, the patriot of all patriots. The winningest of all the winners. The greatest of all the greats, will (almost certainly) become the NFL’s all-time passing yards leader on a Sunday Night Football showdown against none other than his former team, the New England Patriots, in his former home, Gillette Stadium.
Tom Brady, who won 6 Super Bowls with the New England Patriots and made his case for being the greatest football player of all time, left New England to settle down in Tampa Bay.
But if there is one thing you need to know about Tom Brady, it’s that he never settles down. The former 6th round pick who was labeled ‘too skinny’ and was said to ‘lacks great physical stature and strength’ won a Super Bowl in his first season in Tampa Bay at the young age of 43 years old.
Now 44, Tom wins a Super Bowl approximately every 6.29 years of his life.
And at 44 years old, the kid who was too skinny will nearly certainly surpass Drew Brees and take the crown of being the all-time NFL passing yards leader. Brady currently sits at 80,191, second to only Brees who’s at 80,358.
Now, Brady and the Buccaneers, coming off of a loss to the Rams, will face Bill Belichick, the mastermind behind the Patriots dynasty. Brady and Belichick are widely reported to have a massive falling out in the final years of Brady as a Patriot.
Brady wanted to go to San Francisco and fulfill his childhood dream of playing for the 49ers, but Kyle Shanahan is (reported to have said) that he thought Jimmy Garoppolo would get the job done just as much as Brady could, and he didn’t see a huge gap between the two in play-style and talent.
So, Brady took his talents down south and took over the Floridan beaches.
Although Brady escaped Bill Belichick and the Patriot Way from up north, it was inevitable that he would return.
Now in his return, he’s most likely going to achieve something that has never been done before, throw for over 80,358 yards.
Tom Brady is a GOAT doing GOAT things, and on Sunday, he’s about to take over his old farm in a way that’s never been done before.
