Thomas Edward Patrick Brady, Jr. nicknamed as Tom Brady, was in born August 3, 1977, San Mateo, California, United States, is an American football quarterback who has won seven “Super Bowls” (2002, 2004, 2005, 2015, 2017, 2019, and 2021) and has been awarded the game’s Most Valuable Player “MVP”five(5) times in the year 2002, 2004, 2015, 2017, and 2021.
Brady used to go to “San Francisco” 49ers games as a kid to watch the renowned quarterback “Joe Montana idol Brady’s” and the man to whom he would someday be compared play. Brady was a standout football and baseball player in high school at his early years. In the year 1995, he was selected by the “Montreal Expos” in the “Major League Baseball draft”, but he decided to attend the “University of Michigan” instead of playing football.
Brady, who did not make his first start until his junior year, guided Michigan to the “1999 Orange Bowl triumph” and earned a reputation as a determined and cerebral player who lacked remarkable physical skills. The New England Patriots selected him in the sixth round of the National Football League draft in 2000, and he worked hard during his rookie season to bulk up physically and improve his strength and technique.
Brady took over as the Patriots’ starting quarterback after Drew Bledsoe was injured in the second game of the 2001 season. His play wasn’t remarkable, but he was steady in his approach, making easy plays and limiting his errors. Brady was selected Super Bowl “MVP” after the Patriots went 11 to 3 in the regular season and upset the “St. Louis Rams” in “Super Bowl XXXVI” with Tom Brady as their starting quarterback. During Brady’s first three seasons, the Patriots went 40 to 12, making them one of the best teams in the National Football League. In the year 2004, the squad won the Super Bowl for the second time, defeating the “Carolina Panthers” and earning Brady yet another “MVP” title.
The momentum continued the next season, when the Patriots extended their winning run totwenty (21), breaking the previous high of eighteen(18) set by the “Miami Dolphins” in 1972–1973. Brady and the Patriots won their third Super Bowl in four years, this time against the Philadelphia Eagles, to cap off the season.
Brady set a record with fifty(50) touchdown passes in the 2007 season (which was later eclipsed by Brady’s longtime nemesis Peyton Manning in the year 2013), and he led New England to the first 16 to 0 regular season inNational Football League history, receiving “MVP” honors in the process. In “Super Bowl XLII”, however, the Patriots were defeated by the underdog New York Giants. Brady suffered a significant knee injury in the opening game of the 2008 (National Football League) season.that required season-ending surgery.
The next season, he was named to the “Pro Bowl” after leading the Patriots to another playoff appearance. Brady set anNational Football League record with 36 touchdown passes in 2010, leading the Patriots to a 14 to 2 record. Despite the Patriots losing their first playoff game the following season, he was chosen league “MVP” for the second consecutive season, becoming the first player to win the honor unanimously.
Brady became one of two(2) quarterbacks to surpass “Dan Marino’s” single-season passing yardage record (which was also broken by Manning in the year 2013) during the 2011 season, passing for 5,235 yards and leading the Patriots to another Super Bowl loss to the Giants (February 2012). In (2012) and (2013), Brady continued to play at a Pro Bowl level, leading the Patriots to losses in the “AFC” title game each season
However, the Patriots’ victory was quickly flawed by controversy, when it was discovered that 11 of the 12 footballs they used in the game were suggestivelyunderiNational Football Leagueated, making them easier to handle and allowing them to go further when thrown. The National Football League investigated the event but took no action before the “Super Bowl”, in which Brady led a fourth-quarter rally to defeat the “Seattle Seahawks” 28 to 24. Brady won his third Super Bowl “MVP award” after passing for 328 yards and four touchdowns.
Brady won his third(3rd) league “MVP” title in 2017 after leading the National Football League with 4,577 passing yards, 32 touchdown passes, and only eight(8)interferences. That season, the Patriots finished with the best record in the “AFC” and went to the “Super Bowl” for the eighth (8th ) time in Brady’s career. The Patriots were defeated by the Eagles despite Brady surpassing his own “Super Bowl” record with 505 passing yards. Brady led the Patriots to their 10th consecutive division title and third consecutive “Super Bowl” participation in 2018, passing for 4,355 yards and twenty nine (29) touchdowns. Brady led the Patriots to a 13 to 3 victory over the Los Angeles Rams in the lowest-scoring championship game in National Football League history. It was his sixth championship. Tampa Bay won eleven (11) games and qualified for the playoffs in his debut season with the Buccaneers. Brady also set a new National Football League record for touchdown passes that season, with 581 for his career. Brady guided his club to three straight road victory in the playoffs, advancing to the Super Bowl.
Brady established himself among the game’s greats for his perseverance, his clever playmaking talents, and the extraordinary leadership he offered under pressure, despite not being the National Football League’s strongest or fastest quarterback. He was also noted for his fitness philosophy, which he documented in his book The TB12 Method: How to Achieve a Lifetime of Sustained Peak Performance in 2017. He married fashion model “Gisele Bündchen” in 2009.
