In his twenty third yr within the league, Tom Brady definitely understands what it’s prefer to compete in an NFL season.
Despite the fact that Brady has no experience of participating within the military, he drew a comparison to the military and the NFL this week while speaking on his Let’s Go! podcast with Jim Gray.
The Buccaneers quarterback spoke with Nets star Kevin Durant on the most recent episode of the podcast about what it’s like balancing work and life.
When Durant compared the NBA season to “hibernation,” Brady offered a comparison of his own: “military deployment.”
“I almost take a look at like a football season such as you’re going away on deployment within the military, and it’s like, ‘man, here I am going again,’” Brady said. “There’s just one method to do it. … The fact is you possibly can really only be authentic to yourself, right? Each time it’s possible you’ll say, ‘Oh man, I would like to, you already know, be certain that I spend a bit of more time doing this.’ When it comes all the way down to it, your competitiveness takes over and as much as you should have this playful balance with the work balance, you’re going to find yourself doing exactly what you’ve all the time done, which is why you might be who you might be. You’re going to go, ‘how the [expletive] do I get it done?’ You understand, ‘what do I got to do to get it done?’”
Brady didn’t literally mean that the NFL seasons and military deployments are comparable. His statement reflects how he thinks an NFL season takes him away from all the opposite facets of his life apart from competing.
This comment comes at an interesting time through which Brady has been within the news recently for his situations outside of football. Just last weekend, the quarterback attended his former Patriots owner Robert Kraft’s wedding, which then caused Brady to miss practice the subsequent day.
Moreover, Brady and his wife Gisele Bündchen have made headlines as rumors flow into in regards to the couple potentially divorcing.
Brady retired from football back in February of this yr, but announced his return for the 2022 season just weeks later.
