Well, he did it.
Tom Brady has led the Tampa Bay Buccaneers to the Super Bowl, this after holding off the Green Bay Packers, 31-26, at Lambeau Field on Sunday.
The Buccaneers will face the Kansas City Chiefs in Super Bowl LV at Raymond James Stadium in Tampa Bay on Feb. 7.
The Buccaneers will be the first team to play a Super Bowl in their home stadium. Brady, meanwhile, will play in his tenth Super Bowl – this one for a franchise that hadn’t made the playoffs since 2007.
“When you see it every day, when you see the impact he has on this football team, the attention to detail, the work ethic, how everybody believes – that’s the word you come away with, just the belief that these players and coaches have in Tom. He’s refreshed by a change of scenery and new teammates and the warm weather and all of that, of course. But he’s all about winning, and it’s just what he does better than everybody.”
Brady is 6-3 in Super Bowls. He has played on this stage in five of the last eight seasons.
“I get the Brady fatigue thing, but if he wins this, I think you stop talking about him as just a football player and you start comparing him to people like Babe Ruth,” Stroud said. “I’ve never see anything like it. It’s just been a great story.”
