Didn't see this previously posted and it's worth a look. Haven't seen him get this emotional before.
Video - Tom Brady Relives Draft
Look at it this way - if he goes to the Lions he could end up like David Carr.
If Brady was drafted by the Lions, there is no way he would've turned out the way he did. Everything the Lions touched, especially back then, turned to poo.
I was the least surprised person in the world when Brady led that first game winning Super Bowl drive. The most gutsy, clutch QB to ever don the winged helmet. He may not have won Super Bowls, glory, and supermodels, but he may have inspired some of the laziest sad sack Lions to actually try. That is, before the offensive line turned him into a cripple. Brady was my all time favorite Michigan QB by the the time he left the program and I think he was destined for greatness whether his career intertwined with Belichek or not.
Entirely possible. But I have no doubt that being picked so late added a ton of motiviation to show everybody they were wrong to pass him up. And after winning one Super Bowl, when others might get a little complacent, he's still got this big chip on his shoulder to keep working hard and win more.
Watching him get choked up like that all these years and successes later, you can see how deeply that cut at the time. He's probably still feeding off it today. That video makes it plain to see how motivating that was.
XD you must hate brady then. The Lions are the franchise where talent goes to die.
This is a good video, and it should be good to watch. I can't wait until they make a documentary after his career, hopefully with a couple more Super Bowl rings haha.
