Tom Brady goes on social media to talk about his future
The post started off by thanking all of his fans that supported him throughout the season, as well as everyone that works at Gillette Stadium.
“I just wanted to say to all of our fans, THANK YOU!” Brady wrote. “After a few days of reflection, I am so grateful and humbled by the unconditional support you have shown me the past two decades. Running out of that tunnel every week is a feeling that is hard to explain. I wish every season ended in a win, but that’s not the nature of sports (or life). Nobody plays to lose. But the reward for working hard is just that, the work!! I have been blessed to find a career I love, teammates who go to battle with me, an organization that believes in me, and fans who have been behind us every step of the way.
“Every one of us that works at Gillette Stadium strived to do their best, spent themselves at a worthy cause, and prepared to fail while daring greatly (h/t Teddy Roosevelt). And for that, we’ve been rewarded with something that the scoreboard won’t show — the satisfaction of knowing we gave everything to each other in pursuit of a common goal. That is what TEAM is all about.”
Brady said after the Patriots lost to the Tennessee Titans that it was ‘pretty unlikely’ that he would retire and he confirmed those thoughts in his Instagram post. He explained that you can’t always win in life or football but it’s most important how you pick your self back up from it, and that’s a great life lesson.
“In both life and football, failure is inevitable,” he wrote. “You don’t always win. You can, however, learn from that failure, pick yourself up with great enthusiasm, and place yourself in the arena again. And that’s right where you will find me. Because I know I still have more to prove.”
While Tom Brady cleared the air regarding whether he will play football in 2020 by saying he has more to prove, the question becomes a matter of where? Will he be running out of Gillette Stadium again next season leading to the Patriots to battle or will he be on another team like the Los Angeles Chargers and try to lead them to a Super Bowl?
