Brady also talks about the rigors of recovering from the season to get ready for the next one - and hints at the "conviction" that he'll need to have in order to continue committing to football as much as he has.
In the epic conclusion to the online series Tom vs. Time, Brady shares what was on his mind before, during, and after Super Bowl 52 against the Philadelphia Eagles. Brady also shared his thoughts on the final minutes of Super Bowl LII and how he feels about the result moving forward.
Tom Brady suffered an injury during his team's playoff run this past season, and after seeing photos of the damage, it's a miracle he didn't miss any time.
"This offseason is going to be about my family because they deserve it", he said.
"I have a wife [Gisele Bundchen] that aspires to be a lot of things, and she travels a lot". However, the Patriots fell short, losing 41-33. "I wasn't sure how I was going to do". Your life goes on but, you know, those games live with you for the rest of your life.
What many Patriots fans thought would be a post-Super Bowl victory lap turned into something much different - a look into how one of the all-time greats deals with failure. But I gave everything I had.
Gronkowski: "I'm doing way better". Brady used it as a moment to teach his children an important lesson.
"I feel that now their dad's job has finished and now they are really happy because they get more of their dad".
"I love the sport, I love the competition, I love my teammates, I love working with people that I love to work with", he stated. We don't always win.
Whatever Brady and the Patriots staff did to remedy that very bad looking gash ahead of the Super Bowl clearly worked.
On Thursday, the day after the injury, he was already thinking he had a shot to play, and by Friday it was, "wow, maybe I can go out and do this".
"I'm looking down at my thumb as it's split open", Brady said.
Tom Brady is finally showing everyone the hand injury he suffered during the National Football League playoffs - and it's WAYYYY worse than everyone thought. a massive, deep, bloody gash.
How he managed to throw for 290 yards and two touchdowns in a stunning comeback win, we will never know.
Brady, as we all know, played against Jacksonville and played well.
OK, we already knew this.
Ultimately, Brady showed little effect of the injury against the Jaguars. Gronk didn't play in the second half due to a concussion, but said he was feeling better when Gisele asked for an update.
