This is Tom Brady's ninth Super Bowl and he's currently 5-3 in those games, so he knows what it is like to win, but also what it is like to lose.
Appearing on Mut & Callahan Monday morning, Brady went in-depth on what it is like to win and lose the game, noting how losses leave "mental scar tissue that you’ll have to deal with the rest of your life."
“All these losses are tough," he said. "Every one that you have you remember forever. This is a new team, new season and it is a different game. Certainly, because it happened just a year ago you still remember some of those emotions as opposed to 12 years ago when we lost in ’07. Those are still a little bit fresh. We just realize everything we have to put into it. If you get to this game and you don’t perform to your best and you don’t perform well enough to win, you just kick yourself for the rest of your life. I don’t think anyone wants to go through that.
"Hopefully we learned that lesson and hopefully that serves as some motivation. The whole point of this week is to win the game. If you win it, you’ll have something to celebrate the rest of your life. If you don’t, it will be some mental scar tissue that you’ll have to deal with the rest of your life.”
The Patriots fell to the Eagles, 41-33 in the Super Bowl last year.
Brady also reiterated he has no plans on retiring after the game.
