Tom Brady never forgets.
Over the course of the last few years, experts have stated Tom Brady and the New England Patriots were soon going to falter and never be the same again, only for the team to play deep into the postseason and play for a Super Bowl each time.
Among those who have wrongly assumed that Tom Brady would start to decline is ESPN’s Max Kellerman, who stated back in 2016, “He’s going to fall off a cliff. Tom Brady is going to be a BUM in short order.”
Brady saw those comments, never spoke to them publicly, but he definitely remembered.
On Thursday, Brady posted a a snapshot of his 61 MPH arm strength on his Instagram Story, along with Kellerman’s quote, “He’s gonna fall off a cliff.”
After those July 2016 comments, the New England Patriots have been to the Super Bowl every year, winning 2 out of 3.
Brady’s nine trips to the Super Bowl are more than any other NFL franchise has in their history.
