Stop doubting this man.

We all know of the accomplishments Buccaneers quarterback Tom Brady has achieved throughout his career. Passing records, MVP honors, Super Bowl victories, etc. It’s normal to wonder what else he can possibly achieve, but just don’t doubt him trying to continue his drive for greatness.

Speaking in an exclusive interview with Good Morning America, Brady revealed that the criticism he receives fuels his fire.

I was always kind of motivated by people that say ‘you can’t do it.’ You know, ‘you’re not good enough, you’re not fast enough, not big enough, you’re not good enough arm. I’ve had a body of work over a period of time, so you know, you just say, hey [and] quickly you forget.

I think that’s a great part about football. 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.

There was much uncertainty last offseason when Tampa Bay signed Brady. With the inability for teams across the NFL to truly prepare for the 2020 season due to the pandemic, some were very skeptical of how much of a difference the future Hall of Fame quarterback would provide.

It’s truly incredible to consider that thought. And now with yet another Super Bowl ring, with a new team in his first year nonetheless, it’s remarkable that there are people that have some reservations of what Brady can do on a football field.
