Tom Brady is a seven-time Super Bowl champion, but there is one particular ring that got away from him that he wishes he could have. In fact, the Tampa Bay Bucs QB revealed that he’d happily trade not one, but two of his seven Lombardi Trophies if it meant he could go back in time and win Super Bowl XLII, securing perfection for the New England Patriots.
“Would you be willing to trade two Super Bowl rings to win that one Super Bowl?” Shannon Sharpe asked Brady.
“I would,” Brady said.
Brady and the Patriots fell in dramatic fashion to Eli Manning and the New York Giants, 17-14.
Eli sent a great tweet on Tuesday in response to Brady’s comments.
That game is something that has haunted Brady for years and he’s never been shy about admitting it.
“That 2007 game is one my least favorite football memories, probably because I had a lot of you on top of me, with grass hanging off my back,” Brady told retired Giants Osi Umenyiora in February. “You guys had a great defense. You guys deserved to win.”
The Patriots entered the game as 12-point favorites and had just beaten the Giants in Week 17 to go 16-0 that season.
