Tom Brady Talks About His Motivation

April 6th, 2021

The Buccaneers’ quarterback, the greatest in the history of football, will be seen addressing the nation on national television tomorrow morning.

But a nugget of the interview was released today.

Tom Brady had a sitdown with his buddy Michael Strahan for Good Morning America on ABC.

In the published clip, Strahan asks Brady about those who said last year that it won’t work for him in Tampa and he should retire.

“I was always kind of motivated by people that say, ‘You can’t do it. You’re not good enough. You’re not fast enough, not big enough, you don’t have a good enough arm,’” Brady told Good Morning America.

“You know, I’ve had a body of work over a period of time. So, you know, you just say, hey, like quickly you forget. I think that’s the great part about football, too; it’s not really about what you did last year, it’s kind of what you’re going to do this year. So for me it was what I was going to do for the Bucs last year. I still feel that way.”

Classic Brady. Joe sure hopes video or audio emerges of Brady unloading on his teammates in training camp this summer when he feels a practice isn’t at the level needed to repeat as Super Bowl champs.

    …done with words for this superman… is all said… I just want to say: We Love TB12
    he brought this team/area back to life. What an exception man..πŸ‘Œ

  2. Wesley Says:

    Still can’t believe we have the goat, much less us winning the SB.

  3. Tampabaybucfan Says:

    One word he brought to the Bucs other than Championship & that’s relevance.

  4. Cobraboy Says:

    Woe be unto the first sluggard on the practice field in TC…

  5. Alvin Scissors Harper Says:

    It’s very rare that a reigning Super Bowl champion is really strong the next year. The Chiefs were certainly the exception and not the rule. However, when you have the GOAT, you almost expect to repeat. Yes, he’s that good at 43 or 44 or whatever the hell he is and he is a peerless leader of men.

  6. Mikadeemas Says:

    Agreed guys. Damn, still hard to believe! GO BUCS!!

  7. Casual Observer Says:

    Does Brady ever wear a cape? Around the house even?

  8. DaBux Says:

    Franchise saving move. Licht has free beer on me (and cigars) any time he’s in Sarasota or Cancun.

  9. Youngbucs Says:

    It’s crazy how people take what Brady is doing for granted. Dude just had arguably the second best season of his career. I honestly believe he’s not get enough credit.


    The praising gets a little redundant and corney but the man backs it up so I’ll go along for the ride. Man you listen to the Boston sports radio and Krafts interview last week, it appears like Kraft is giving Belichick the keys to the city and his wallet but for the first time in 20 years Bill is under a microscope. If Bucs repeat and Pat’s don’t make or are one and done in the PO’s his head may roll sealing the 20 year debate was it Bill’s coaching or Brady.

    Joe did you see that Alex cappa got the biggest performance bonus in the league this year. 620k. That shows your doing great drafting when a guy out performs his contract more than anyone else in the league.

  12. Buczilla Says:

    We are so lucky to have Brady and my interest in the draft is the lowest that it has been in a long time.

  13. BUCFAN4LIFE Says:

    Anyone would be a complete Idiot to doubt the G.O.A.T. and his drive and desire to help his Team to be the best than it can be . We just witnessed that last year . He’s the Ultimate Leader and Motivator that the NFL’s never seen before !

    “Anyone would be a complete Idiot to doubt the G.O.A.T.”

    Agree BUCFAN but you wouldn’t know that a year ago on this site. There were a significant % who thought dumping JW for Brady was a HUGE mistake!

    There were plenty although the poor guy whose handle started with an N is perhaps the most humiliated and absolutely the most mistaken.

  15. Ghost of Darrell Henderson Says:

    Joez, someone should do a story on how much playoff money the Buc players got, who got checks and interview a couple of the lowest salaried people and what the playoff bonus meant in their lives.

    I’m sure the higher paid players and coaches hardly noticed it but maybe to one of the assistant coaches or practice squad dudes it was a big deal.

  16. Howard Cosell Says:

    Howard had the weirdest dream last night:
    He dreamed that Brady left the Pats and went to the Bucs
    and suddenly the Bucs roster was stacked, and then the Bucs won
    a Superbowl in their own stadium. Then Belicheat got
    Scam Newton and the Pats went 7-9.
    Bizarre freakin dream huh?

  17. Swampbuc Says:

    Cue Oneilschmuck to find something negative to say. Jamiss may not even beat out Taysom Hill to start for the Aints

  18. SOEbuc Says:


  19. '79 Defense Says:

    Like others, I still find it hard to believe that we have Brady and that we actually won a SB with him.

    Amazing that even though he played 20 years and won all those Super Bowls with NE, the story of Tom Brady includes great success in Tampa and will end with the Bucs.

  20. Oneilbuc Says:

    Swampbucs again you still keep talking about Jamies lol πŸ˜† πŸ˜‚ 🀣 . He hunts you every night in your dreams doesn’t he ?? Lol πŸ˜† 🀣 πŸ˜‚ . I’m still not going to bash the brother and you still going to be crying about Jamies going on year 2 with him being on another team lol πŸ˜† πŸ˜… !!
