We have witnessed two of the greatest Super Bowls ever in the past two years, ones where the last plays have determined the outcomes of the games. I didn’t have a horse in this year’s race, but I was all the more interested in Super Bowl LII because of New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady.
Brady is the greatest of all time, and I don’t think any convincing could tell me otherwise, but there was something about the Philadelphia Eagles that was really special. Their story as an underdog team that battled adversity and overcame several injuries was one that was hard not to cheer for.
But for some reason, I was rooting for the Patriots because of their history and what Brady has done as quarterback.
Brady went for yet another Super Bowl title in his historic career. Despite his age, he made 40 look like the new 20. After watching the new documentary “Tom vs Time,” it is truly incredible what he is doing at his age.
Brady is taking a new approach to working out and taking care of his body. Anyone who is that dedicated to his craft is hard not to cheer for. The way he eats is very measured and cautious, and what he puts in his body is nothing that I would put in mine.
I think Brady has at least two more Super Bowl victories in him. He has said numerous times that he feels great and has never felt better.
Sunday was a night for Eagles quarterback Nick Foles to shine, but mark my words: you will see Brady back in a Super Bowl before Foles returns.
Foles will get a starting contract somewhere next year, but it’s still Brady’s football world — we are just living in it.
