Tom Brady still 'fired up' by draft snub 20-plus years later

By , WEEI 93.7

Late last month, Tom Brady took to Twitter in order to express his boredom following the excitement of another Super Bowl win.

Since that tweet, Brady took to the social media platform three times. The first was in reaction to J.D. Martinez's t-shirt showing the quarterback's inebriated Super Bowl celebration. Then came the resurfacing of a photo with a goat, responding replying to an old photo of Justin Bieber.

Then came Sunday's post.

With another NFL Draft coming up next month, the event will continue to be the talk of the league. And in Brady's world that means one thing: Remembering those days leading up to the 2000 Draft.

This is how he spent at least some time over the weekend, as was evident by Brady's reaction to an old NFL Films interview talking about the league's misread of the quarterback.

“That kinda gets me fired up, ’cause I’m thinking, you know ‘What the hell do these people know?’ That sounds like Joe Montana right there," Brady told Steve Sabol.
"When people tell you, ‘Hey, you can’t do this, you can’t do this,” and you keep overcoming that, you build this confidence and this belief in yourself that, even when nobody else believes in you, that I’m still gonna do it. Because I don’t give a shit what you say. I know what I can do, and I’ve done it.”
