In case he forgot, Tom Brady was reminded this past week of something all of Philadelphia will remember forever. "I would love to play five more years", Brady said in the video. "They're not going to believe me and they're not going to care until I step on that field and prove it for real". It'll be a challenge for me.
"I could tell people I'm feeling unbelievable, I could tell people I'm feeling bad", he told a conference call. "It's f-- going to be hard to do". Of course, he has DeAndre Hopkins at receiver, and they see the return of J.J. Watt, but I'm going to take New England winning at home. "I still feel like there's things to accomplish". And once you stop, you're done.
"I really want to focus on football, not hot topics, and my reaction to a lot of hot topics and so forth", he said.
"I think I can do it", he said. "And if they're not going to get it from August through January then they've got to get it from February through July or else I'm not doing my job as a parent".
Teammates believe he'll be able to pull it off.
O'Brien isn't just blowing smoke when it comes to what he said about Gronkowski as they enter the Week 1 game because it is true that Gronkowski is, in, fact, the best tight end in all of the National Football League when he's healthy. I mean, football's fun for me. Just look at him.
In Week 3 a year ago, Brady totaled 378 passing yards and five passing touchdowns in one of his best games of the season.
Brie Larson reveals why she took Captain Marvel role
Brie Larson , the star of Captain Marvel , has revealed why she made a decision to take on the part of the MCU's latest superhero. In the comics, Mar-Vell is responsible for Carol Danvers getting her powers, but what they do in the MCU remains to be seen.
He got a taste of that 10 years ago when he was lost for the season in the opening game and he was suspended for the first four games of the 2016 season for Deflategate.
At one point he seemed to address the criticism he's received in recent seasons about his relationship with his personal health coach and business partner Alex Guerrero.
"If I'm going to do something at this point, it's going to be because I enjoy it", Brady said in a narration in the episode.
He added that the past eight years of his career have been better than his first 10. Some of it was my approach. I've played a lot with them a year ago. "And that's why I'm trying to do". Watson is back and healthy now, and that's the biggest reason Houston is worth watching in 2018, when the team figures to have as good a shot as anyone in the AFC South to get into the playoffs. And I think people are just looking for something to write, talk about.
Although Brady has consistently said he wants to play until he's 45, there has been some speculation that he might call it quits before that.
Aches and pains: Patriots offensive tackle Marcus Cannon (calf), safety Nate Ebner (knee), tight end Jacob Hollister (hamstring) and running back Sony Michel (knee) are all listed as questionable for Sunday's game.
