Tom Brady IG Elicits Reaction From Patriots QB Jarrett Stidham
January 9, 2020
Patriots quarterback Tom Brady took to his Instagram account to deliver a message for the Patriots nation. He thanked everyone for their support, and pretty much every Patriots player appeared in the comments section. Quarterback Jarrett Stidham is one of them.
“I just wanted to say to all of our fans, THANK YOU! After a few days of reflection, I am so grateful and humbled by the unconditional support you have shown me the past two decades. Running out of that tunnel every week is a feeling that is hard to explain. I wish every season ended in a win, but that’s not the nature of sports (or life). Nobody plays to lose. But the reward for working hard is just that, the work!! I have been blessed to find a career I love, teammates who go to battle with me, an organization that believes in me, and fans who have been behind us every step of the way.
“Every one of us that works at Gillette Stadium strived to do their best, spent themselves at a worthy cause, and prepared to fail while daring greatly (h/t Teddy Roosevelt). And for that, we’ve been rewarded with something that the scoreboard won’t show – the satisfaction of knowing we gave everything to each other in pursuit of a common goal. That is what TEAM is all about.
“In both life and football, failure is inevitable. You dont always win. You can, however, learn from that failure, pick yourself up with great enthusiasm, and place yourself in the arena again.
“And that’s right where you will find me. Because I know I still have more to prove.”
“You’re the man 12!” Stidham wrote. This says pretty much everything you should know about Stidham’s opinion of Brady.
He has so much to learn from the goat. Every NFL player has a lot to learn from TB12, and yes, he can give the team so much. That’s why the Patriots need to keep him around for a while. Brady is expected to become a free agent in March. Will he stay in New England?
