Tom Brady draws reaction from Robert Kraft after NFC title win vs. Packers
New England Patriots team owner Robert Kraft always had admiration for his longtime quarterback in Tom Brady and even treated him as one of his own all throughout the years.
The bond between the two notable individuals never wavered even after the three-time NFL MVP decided to leave Foxborough during the offseason.
“Before we spoke, Brady got flooded with congratulatory texts and calls, including one from Patriots owner Robert Kraft,” King reported via Boston CBS.
During the postgame interview, Tom Brady was also asked about the feeling of this season’s conference championship as compared to his previous nine that was won with the Patriots.
“It’s hard to compare,” Brady told King. “It’s not worth it, comparing any of that, to me. It doesn’t really matter. It’s an incredible feeling and to win a conference championship is incredible. To win a Super Bowl championship is one of the great feelings in the world. But they don’t give these away. Obviously, everything’s different this year, with us being at home. I’m sure it’ll feel like just another game, although we all know it’s just not another game.”
Despite playing at an advanced age of 43-years-old, Tom Brady still managed to turn back the clock and manufacture a stellar performance on the field. He finished the game with 280 yards on 20-of-36 passes along with three passing touchdowns against the Packers.
His production under center successfully involved the entire Bucs offense all throughout the game as they dealt a 31-26 loss to the Packers on their home turf.
At the end of the day, Kraft’s communication with Brady proves that no love was lost between the two sides even after the quarterback’s previous departure from the Patriots.
Tom Brady will aim to make more history this time with the Buccaneers as they head to face the Kansas City Chiefs on Feb. 7 for the Super Bowl LV title.
