Tom Brady has cemented his legacy as the Greatest Player of all time and his 7 Super Bowl rings are a testament to the same. But even the Goat has some interesting and fun stories, incidents, and anecdotes that have taken place over his illustrious 21 years in the league.
Tom Brady is a little bit crazy. There’s no way around it. He is so dedicated to football and quarterbacking that it borders upon madness. There’s nothing else to say about it and his continued NFL career at the age of 44-years-old is a testament to it.
Tom Brady is known for not only outworking players on the field but also outworking them in the film room, the training centres and even his diet. He doesn’t eat dairy, tomatoes, pepper, mushrooms or most fruits—“I have no desire to do that”.
And all of this has led to his unbeatable legacy. 7 Super Bowl rings, All-Time leader in Passing Yards with 79,204 yards, All-Time leader with 581 touchdowns, 3 MVP’s and many more.

Bill Belichick reveals how Tom Brady had a near-death experience
Bill Belichick and Tom Brady tore up the league together for 21 years. But there was a time Belichick was scared that the duo will be separated earlier than everyone would have hoped. Belichick recapped the incident that happened in 2015.
“When we played golf at Pebble Beach, on the sixth hole, it’s a big cliff. He’s literally standing out there on the ledge, trying to hit the ball. The caddie is holding him so he won’t like tumble 300 feet to his death into the Pacific Ocean. It’s a golf ball. But I think that’s kind of the competitiveness of Tom. I’m sure there’s a picture of it. I’m thinking to myself, ‘What the hell are you doing?'”
The Buccaneers quarterback’s legacy in the NFL is very well established at this point, but the fact that Brady is gearing up for another NFL season at this age is simply remarkable. And what’s even more unbelievable is that Brady was willing to put all his work and his legacy all over a game of Golf. But if anybody is crazy enough, it’s Tom Brady.
