There have been many reports and speculations about why Tom Brady decided to leave the New England Patriots after 20 seasons and six Super Bowl titles. Until Brady decides to expand the scale of his own exports, the whole story may never be made public. However, one motivating factor discovered this week can be traced back to Brady’s long-time competitor, Peyton Manning.
Pirates quarterback coach Clyde Christensen (Clyde Christensen) believes that one of the reasons Brady left New England is to match what Manning can only do: to become the two teams that won the Super Bowl. Starting quarterback.
Christensen told “CBS Sports Radio’s Zach Gelb Show”
“I do think this is a huge challenge for him. Twenty-one years (Brady’s career) is a long time. Sometimes there is still time for change. He mentioned many times that he was impressed by this and he was It looks interesting and challenging.”
After entering the free agency market for the first time in his career, Brady signed a two-year contract with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and quickly brought them to the promised land after handling the Kansas City Chiefs in Super Bowl LV .
Manning and the Denver Broncos won the Lombardi Trophy in the Super Bowl 50 with the Denver Broncos, thus winning two franchise Super Bowl titles. This is nine years ago when Manning and the Indianapolis Colts won Super Bowl XLI. Manning will be inducted into the Professional Football Hall of Fame in 2021. He retired after retiring in the 2015 season. This is the second time he won the Super Bowl and became the NFL in passing yards and touchdowns. An unprecedented leader in scoring (because both categories passed) Brady and Drew Brees).
Christensen knows Manning very well. He spent 10 seasons in Indianapolis and served as offensive coordinator in 2010. He believes the 43-year-old is looking for more.
Christensen concluded: “I can’t see an end, and he certainly doesn’t seem to have an end.” “He is confident in his daily activities and physical condition. He will stay for a while.”
Brady has been eager to play until his seventh Super Bowl championship (until the age of seventy-fifth), which has been the most victories a player has ever won. Jason Licht, general manager of Bucs, recently stated that he hopes Brady will mention Bucs’ interest in contract renewal, so as to further develop his unprecedented career.
Manning may be unique in his achievements is the five NFL Most Valuable Player awards he won during his 17-season career.Brady only Three league MVPs, but his five Super Bowl MVPs are equally impressive, even more.
When Brady enters his 22nd NFL season, his next goal may be to become the Manning singles champion. He will be the only first QB to win two Super Bowl titles. This may be just another chapter in one of the greatest QB competitions in NFL history, but in many cases, the need to keep chasing opponents is the need for people to keep moving forward. Especially for people who have achieved more than anyone else.
