"She's right. I did say that because when we met I was 29, 30 years old, and I thought, 'Man, if I get to 40, it'd be incredible'". The footage from Brady's documentary series was released Monday on Facebook Watch.
Toward the end of the episode, Brady talked about his family life and how he plans to spend his offseason with his supermodel wife and three children.
"I'm looking down at my thumb as it's split open", Brady said.
Everything from his thumb injury, to losing Gronkowski against Jacksonville, to their heartbreaking defeat by five points, Brady touches down on every obstacle that stood in their way for a sixth Super Bowl Ring.
In the weeks leading up to Super Bowl LII, the condition of Tom Brady's hand was the first and last question being asked to the New England Patriots as they continued to purposely hide the injury to give their opponents any firepower on where to hit. "It's easy when you look back", says Brady.
He thought the Patriots were going to have a game-winning drive in the Super Bowl: With just under 2-and-a-half minutes left in the game, the Patriots had possession and a chance to pull ahead of Philadelphia. "I love the sport, I love the competition, I love my teammates, I love working with people that I love to work with".
Sherman is 'Vengeful' Towards Seahawks
So they need to throw an attaboy or two in the direction of Sherman the agent for the work he did on behalf of Sherman the player. According to a report, the Richard Sherman deal with the San Francisco 49ers might be a fancy form of smoke and mirrors.
The quote comes after ESPN reported that there was tension between Brady and coach Bill Belichick last season, regarding Brady's trainer Alex Guerrero and Jimmy Garoppolo and criticism aimed at the three-time NFL MVP.
"I thought we were going to go down and score. We played good. We came from behind", Brady said of the 24-20 win.
The report also stated that Brady was "less than fine" with criticism from Belichick throughout the season, stemming from the Patriots' playoff win against the Houston Texans in 2017.
Still, Brady didn't sound like a man on the verge of walking away from the game. "We try our best; sometimes it doesn't go the way we want.' That's probably one of the best moments I've had as a parent, because you feel like you're parenting", said Brady. "The rawness of what happened will go away". It would be a great career - 18 years in the National Football League.' I learned a lot and it's been such a great love for me. "It was a second-down play, and it just happened so quick", Brady recalled in the episode. "I think that's one thing I've learned as I've gotten older". And it speaks to, you know, growing up.
"They were sad for me, and sad for the Patriots", Brady said.
As for the 40-year-old's remaining years in the NFL, Brady reiterated that he's not ready to move on just yet.
