Tom Brady Reveals Which NFL Record Means The Most To Him

Patriots quarterback Tom Brady breaks a record in almost every game. He holds the record for most passing yards and touchdowns in a regular season and playoffs combined. There is one NFL record he is really proud of.

“I think having a lot of perspective on things like this is where I like to come from. I don’t believe that football is an individual sport, so any individual accomplishment to me is always a team accomplishment,” Brady told Jim Gray on Westwood One. “There’s nothing you can accomplish in football without everybody else doing their job. And I think I’ve always taken the football because of that. I’m not a golfer, I don’t play tennis. You look at some of these individual sports, and yeah it’s amazing, and there’s great accomplishment, but I think the joy in sports for me is the relationships that I’ve built with my teammates, with my coaches and with the organization I’ve represented.

“So because I’ve been fortunate to play in the same place for 20 years with great teammates, I’ve been able to pile up a lot of individual statistics, but the reality for me is all those, I share with all the guys that I’ve played with.”

He recalled Gisele’s famous quote from the aftermath of New England losing Super Bowl XLVI.

“So, you know how my wife said, ‘He cannot throw the ball and catch it’? That’s the truth,” Brady said. “There’s a lot of guys who have been on the other end of catching all of those passes.”

Gray asked the quarterback how Wes Walker would feel about this comment.

“You know Wes is one of my best friends. He always will be. Wes knows how I feel about him. What an amazing player he was,” Brady said. “So I look at Wes, I look at Troy Brown, I look at Julian Edelman, and Deion Branch, Randy Moss, Rob Gronkowski, so many guys over the years. All the backs that I’ve played with. It’s pretty amazing. I think I’ve gained a lot of perspective over the years, as I said, and I’m very, very blessed. I love to play this sport, I love to work at it and I love to compete every weekend. And hopefully the fans still enjoy seeing me out there, too.”

The Patriots nation enjoys seeing these wins, and Brady enjoys his success. When asked which record he holds in the best regard, he said, “Well I think the name of the game for me has always been winning, and I think that that’s the one that has and always will mean the most. The goal every week is to go out there and win, and I know some weeks it doesn’t always look as good as others. But the goal of the game is to win, and I’m just proud of our team and all of the accomplishments we’ve had. Winning as often as we have has made my life on Mondays a hell of a lot better. I can hardly deal with the losses, and we haven’t had nearly as many losses as we’ve had wins. So I deal with the wins a lot better.”
