People are asking if Tom Brady would get another shot at winning a Super Bowl again.
Brady’s Buccaneers were a casualty of what has been dubbed the best weekend of football in NFL history — falling agonizingly short of a 24-point second-half comeback against the Los Angeles Rams in one of four breathtaking divisional playoff games.
As soon as Tom Brady left the football field, his future was being questioned by the media. QB Brady just replied that he “hadn’t put a lot of thought into it.”
“We’ll just take it day by day and see where we’re at,” he added.
Tom Brady had faced such a question for several years and is no stranger to playing it cool on calling time. He had appeared on the ‘SiriusXM Let’s Go!’ podcast on Monday and spoke at length about his thought process for the future.
Tom Brady Wants His Family To Be At The Heart Of His Choices
He reiterated that he did not want to “rush” his decisions and that his wife, Gisele Bündchen, and kids would be at the heart of any choice he made.
“The biggest difference now that I’m older is I have kids now too, and I care about them a lot as well,” Brady told Jim Gray.
“They’ve been my biggest supporters. My wife is my biggest supporter, it pains her to see me get hit out there.
“She deserves what she needs from me as a husband and my kids deserve what they need from me as a dad.”
Despite a heartbreaking end, it was still another excellent season for the evergreen Brady, who threw a career-high and NFL season-best 5,316 yards to pass the 5,000-yard mark for the second time in his career.
He also led the NFL in regular-season touchdown passes with 43, finishing second only to the Green Bay Packers Aaron Rodgers in quarterback rating (QBR) with a 68.1 score.
