There have been many reports and speculations about why Tom Brady decided Leave the New England Patriots After 20 seasons and six Super Bowl titles. The full story may never appear until Brady decides to expand on his exit. However, one of the catalysts revealed this week was due to Brady’s longtime rival Peyton Manning.
Buccaneers coach Clyde Christensen thinks one of the reasons Brady left New England was to match something that only Manning had accomplished: to be the midfielder of two Super Bowl winning teams.
Christensen said one of the things that sounded really interesting and defied him was what Peyton did in Denver In an interview with Zack Gelb on CBS Sports Radio. Wednesday. “There was something about that challenge that hit (Brady) right.” Hey, I’m going to see if I can do it again somewhere else. “
“I think the challenge in that was a big thing for him. 21 years (Brady’s career long) is a long time. Sometimes there is time for a change. He has mentioned several times that he liked him which seemed fun and challenging to him.”
Once entering a free agency for the first time in his career, Brady signed a two-year contract with Tampa Bay Buccaneers and quickly brought them to the promised land after dealing with the Kansas City chiefs in Super Ball LV.
Manning became the first QB player to win a Super Bowl title for two associated franchises raising the Lombardi Cup with Denver Broncos in Super Bowl 50. Nine years ago, Manning won the Super Bowl XLI title with the Indianapolis Colts. Manning, who will be inducted into the Professional Football Hall of Fame in 2021, retired after the 2015 season after winning his second Super Bowl and moved away from his title as captain in the NFL in passes and relegations (since he’s been passed in both categories) Posted by Brady and Drew Bryce).
Christensen, who knows Manning well after spending 10 seasons in Indianapolis as an assistant and was the offensive coordinator in 2010, believes the 43-year-old is looking for more.
“I don’t see an end in sight and he’s definitely not acting as if there is an end in sight,” Christensen concluded. “He’s so confident with his routine and what he’s doing physically, he’s going to survive for some time.”
Brady kept on The desire to play until the age of 45 and beyond After his seventh Super Bowl title, which is easily the most number any player has ever won. Bucs General Manager Jason Licht recently said he hopes Brady will further his unprecedented career by mentioning Bucs’ interest in extending the contract.
One of the accomplishments that Manning could stand for was the NFL Most Valuable Player Awards, which he won during his 17-season career. Brady Only he has Three players in the league, but the top five Super Bowl players who have obtained it are equal, if not more, impressive.
Perhaps the next goal on Brady’s mind as he enters his twenty-second NFL season is to keep up with Manning for once by becoming the only QB to ever win so many Super Bowl titles for two franchises. It may be just another small chapter in one of the greatest QB competitions in NFL history, but all too often the constant need to chase the opponent is what one needs to keep going. Especially for someone who has already accomplished more than anyone else.
