Tom Brady remembers what could have happened in Super Bowl LII.
Tom Brady is still looking for revenge, and with Wild Card weekend against the Eagles approaching, don't be surprised if the Buccaneers pull off a trick or two involving the quarterback on Sunday.
As a guest on the SiriusXM podcast, Brady was asked about the botched Super Bowl LII play, in which the then-Patriots quarterback missed a wide-open pass on a third-down attempt by Danny Amendola that would have resulted in a huge payoff.
Brady tried to explain his thought process on the game, then was candid in admitting that Philadelphia fans remind him daily.
"I get reminded of that play," Brady said, "Every time I see an Eagles fan, I get reminded of that play." He said on the podcast
"My man Nick Foles caught a two-yard touchdown for God's sake. I'm out there in the middle of the field running my 5.2 forty. I'm a fish out of water out there. I wish I came down with it, it was just one of those plays that I'll never get back, and that's the reality of playing quarterback in the NFL."
Given the way that Brady is currently throwing the ball, chances are the Buccaneers playbook won't rely on trickeration to get someone passing to Brady instead.
Brady, at 44, had one of the best seasons of his career, leading the NFL in both passing yards (5,316) and touchdowns (43) en route to helping the Buccaneers secure the No. 2 seed in the NFC.
As was the case back in Super Bowl LII, Brady is likely much better off throwing the ball than trying to catch it.
