Video: Tom Brady Delivers Message To Patriots Fans Ahead Of Super Bowl

Tom Brady answered the question that has been on many Patriots fans minds in his press conference this afternoon.
If he were a Patriots fan, would he be happy or sad to see the 43-year-old quarterback play in the Super Bowl for another franchise? Many fans have been taking sides on the issue. While many support the man who helped lead us to a record 6 Super Bowl victories in an amazing 9 opportunities, some fans are hoping he loses.

“I had an incredible 20 years in New England,” Brady replied. “Really, an incredible 20 years. I wouldn’t change anything over the course of 20 years. That was magical, and all the relationships I developed, those shaped me into who I am as a person, as a player. My kids were born in Boston. I have great affection for the city and for everything that Boston has meant to me and my family — and all of New England, not just Boston.”

Brady wasn’t even completely sure where New England was when he was drafted by the Patriots in 2000.

“I didn’t even know where New England was when I got picked by New England,” Brady said. “That was always a funny story. They called me and said, ‘Oh, you’ve been picked by New England.’ And I was like, ‘That’s amazing. Where’s New England?’ And I landed in Providence, which really screwed me up because that’s not even in Massachusetts.

“It was a great 20 years, and at the end of the day, I had an opportunity to become a free agent. I evaluated different opportunities and just tried to make the best possible decision for myself and my family. I chose Tampa, and it’s just been an amazing experience.”
