Patriots quarterback has been playing football for quite some time, and he is happy to share the field with such a great players. Moreover, the quarterback is not taking things for granted.
During the weekly news conference, the quarterback as informed that he and Philip Rivers of the Los Angeles Chargers will hit a record for the oldest combined age of starting quarterbacks in Sunday’s game. The teams will play in the AFC divisional round game. Combined together, Brady and Rivers are 78 years and 198 days old. It’s a great record in the world of football, right?
The football star feels nice and old
The quarterback said, “Nice. Nice and old.”
Brady will pass his own record with former
Indianapolis Colts and Dencer Broncos quarterback Peyton Manning made in January
“That’s a pretty good one right there,” TB12 said. “That’s pretty cool. It’s just fun to
be around — I’m out there today practicing and it’s whatever degrees out — 10
degrees, 15 degrees and I’m sitting here just playing with my friends, throwing
the football around.
“I think it’s just a great blessing to be able to do it and do it
here for this team, which I’ve loved to do. Philip’s been on the same team. It
means a lot. We all work hard to get to this point. These things aren’t
guaranteed, very tough to get to this point in the season. Every team four
months ago thought they’d be playing in these games. The reality is, that’s not
the way the NFL is, so we’re very fortunate and we’ve got to go out and try to
take advantage of it.”
Well, Brady sure
boosts the energy in Foxboro, so it is easy to have fun during sessions and
“I mean, yeah,” wide receiver Chris Hogan said. “You know what? At
the end of the day, we get to go out there and play football in the playoffs.
Guys work their entire career and never get to these games. Playing here, a lot
of guys have been so grateful to be able to play in a lot of these games, and I
think you have to not take that for granted and go out there, work really hard
and have as much fun as you can. Enjoy the moment and try to play as well as
you can on Sunday.”
Practice in freezing temperatures
“It’s very similar to what we’re going to get on Sunday so just
knowing how many layers you’ve got to put on and how you’re going to feel,”
Brady said. “We didn’t have the nice, warm heated benches out there like we
will on Sunday. It’s cold and that’s just part of this time of year.
“But it’s good to be playing when it’s cold out. It’s good to be
playing this time of year in Foxboro. The weather changed a little bit
yesterday. It snowed at the start and then got sunny and then got cloudy, then
got windy, then got sunny and it’s just a bunch of different things. Just to
practice in it, we’re prepared for it and hopefully, we can use some of the
things we’ve learned to our advantage.”
