Tom Brady’s return to Gillette Stadium was a night to remember. When you looked through the sea of fans marching to their seats, there were groups of Buccaneers jerseys repping the number 12 everywhere. However, there were even more fans wearing the red, white, and blue Patriots jerseys as expected.
A video tribute began to play as Brady made his way out onto the field, that’s when the roar of boos and cheers began coming from fans. When I started hearing these boos I thought, “How on earth do you boo this guy?”
I understand he is playing for the opposing team, so that is a given. But to genuinely boo him after he won you six Super Bowl titles absolutely blows my mind. I get people are upset that he left New England, as am I, but did you think he’d be here forever?
Bill Belichick and Tom Brady’s relationship was not the same towards the end of his stay in New England. Rumor has it, that factored into Brady’s decision to leave. If this is true, I don’t blame him for leaving. Why would you want to stay playing for a coach that you do not get along with and isn’t giving you the respect you deserve.
For Brady to leave the Patriots and head down south to Tampa Bay and win a seventh Super Bowl with the Buccaneers, shows that he is the best. Most Super Bowl rings of all time, most Super Bowl appearances of all time, the NFL’s all-time leader in passing yards. His stats just prove how amazing he is on the field. Whether you love him or hate him, there is no denying that Thomas Edward Patrick Brady Jr. is the greatest quarterback of all time. And if for some god-awful reason that you don’t believe he is the G.O.A.T., stop watching football, because there is nobody better than Touchdown Tommy.
