However, before this weekend’s conflict, Brady was not in the mood to be sentimental—only focused—as the Pirates sought to recover from a 34-24 loss to the Los Angeles Rams, ending a 10-game winning streak.
“I don’t necessarily remember,” Brady told Jim Gray in “Sirius XM, let’s go!” podcast.
“I think this is not that moment. I will have many opportunities to recall my football career-without one, I really don’t want to do this now because I am in a moment.
“I will not think about it, you know, 20 years of history. I will think about a football night, a Sunday night game, because of a very difficult defeat.
“This is obviously an interesting week. There is a lot of accumulation, a lot of hype, and I know this has been going on for a long time. I am very happy to play a football game,” Brady added.
Vindicated sweet smell
Although he did not want to take the risk along the road of memory, Brady admitted that it would be a special experience to reach such a familiar place from the other side of the fence.
“I know the locker room, I know the home locker room, I know the home tunnel, I know which direction the wind blows from, I know everything. I know how it tastes. I know what a night game is like, I know What kind of voice will the fans make,” Brady said.
“So, in some ways, it will be very unique. I have never experienced New England in the past, and this is the first time for me to stand on the other side.”
The cooperation between Brady and Belichick created an unprecedented era of success for the Patriots, and at the same time established Brady’s status as one of the greatest athletes of all time.
Since parting ways, Brady has continued to win his seventh championship ring-leading the Buccaneers to a convincing victory over the Kansas City Chiefs in his first season in Florida-and Bilichik’s The Patriots, for the first time since 1999 without their legendary signal caller, ended the season with a losing record and failed to make the playoffs.
“Damn it,” Old Brady told Tom Curran on the Patriot’s Talk podcast.
“Belichick wanted to get him out. He made 56 touchdowns last year. I think that was a very good year.”
Curran then asked, “Does Brady feel the same way?”
“Damn it,” old Brady replied.
“He is my good mentor”
Brady Jr. is a little bit diplomatic when talking about his former boss.
“Well, I worked there for 20 years, obviously he was a good mentor for me,” Brady said.
“I think I learned a lot of good lessons from him. He is a great football coach and he did a great job for the team. And, you know, any player, I think they just want their coach to give They got everything they got.
“I believe that every great coach wants every player to give them everything they get. I think this is the reason for building a good relationship.”
After losing to the Rams, the Buccaneers arrived at Foxborough with a 2-1 record, and the Patriots separated by 1-2.
On Sunday, Belichick’s team lost to the New Orleans Saints 28-13 at home. The Patriots had too much to make up for after falling behind 0-14 earlier. .
