Buccaneers QB Tom Brady reveals what his wife Gisele asked him after Super Bowl 55 victory
After winning his seventh Super Bowl with a team that had not made it to the playoffs since 2007, Tom Brady’s wife, Gisele Bundchen, asked him a question that probably made him wonder about his future in the NFL and the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.
After the Buccaneers secured the Super Bowl win and Brady went to celebrate with his family, Gisele questioned whether one of the greatest football players of all-time and her husband still have anything to prove, via Rick Stroud of Tampa Bay Times:
Tom Brady revealed on the Late Show the first words his wife, Giselle, shared with him after winning Super Bowl 55. “What more do you have to prove.”

On The Late Late Show with James Corden, Brady told Corden his reaction the moment his wife asked the question and how he moved on from even thinking about the future so quickly, via Jaclyn Hendricks of the New York Post:
“I was trying to figure out a way to change the subject really quick,” the Buccaneers QB said of his response. “I think I moved on to something else pretty quickly.”
You can’t help but also think what a man with the most Super Bowl rings in the history of the NFL, the most Super Bowl appearances, the most playoff wins, most passing touchdowns, and the list goes on and on, needs to continue to play football for. Gisele may have a point in that Brady has already proved so much to the NFL, to his haters, and to himself, so why does he continue to look forward to the next season year after year?
Sure enough, the Buccaneers leader is a competitor with a chip on his shoulder the moment he was drafted 199th overall in the 2000 NFL Draft. Brady came into this league with everything to prove, and the moment he took over as starting quarterback for the New England Patriots, the future Hall of Famer made it known that he would stop at nothing to become the greatest of all-time.
