New England Patriots star quarterback Tom Brady is prepared for anther NFL season. After the offseason, this veteran is eager to step back onto the football field. It is not time for rest mode at all for Brady, who is well aware of the grind he is going to endure this upcoming season.
“Well, I think we really had our vacation. That part is over. Not that you shouldn’t enjoy time with your family or stuff like that, because for the next seven months we’re pretty busy every day,” Brady told The Boston Globe this week.
After losing in the postseason to the Denver Broncos last year, it was another season of no Super Bowl appearance for the Patriots. They have not participated in a Super Bowl since 2012, when they lost to Eli Manning and the New York Giants.
As a 15-year pro, Brady understands the criticism he faces and that fans' view of him might be different after his last postseason run. He is going to use that as fuel to be ready for battle on the gridiron.
"I'm always pretty fired up so I think there's people that always have opinions about us as athletes and you just try to go out there and do your best," Brady told the media, reports The Boston Herald. "You go home at night realizing you left it all on the field and some days you don't play your best, but that's sports."
Even though last season did not go as planned, Brady is an all-time great, capable of turning things around on the field. He has thrown 359 touchdown passes, thrown for 49,149 total yards, and has a total of 4,178 complete passes in his career, according to NFL.com.
