Tom Brady may have won five Super Bowls as a star quarterback. But the New England Patriots hero recently proved that when it comes to his family, his defensive skills are just as strong. Here’s how the NFL icon dealt with the radio host who insulted his five-year-old daughter.
Born in San Mateo, California, in 1977, Brady began his football career playing for the University of Michigan. In 2000 he was selected by the New England Patriots in what is widely regarded as the NFL draft’s biggest ever steal. Brady went on to dominate the sport for the next two decades.
Indeed, Brady has guided the Patriots to no less than eight Super Bowls, an NFL record. He’s won five of them, too – a feat which only defensive end Charles Haley has also achieved – as well as four Super Bowl MVP awards. And his record-breaking certainly doesn’t end there.
Brady has also achieved 13 Pro Bowl selections, guided his team to 15 division titles and picked up three league MVP accolades. On the all-time lists, he places fourth in passing yards and third in touchdown passes. Meanwhile, when it comes to playoff games, he’s appeared in and won more than any other quarterback in NFL history.
But Brady’s glittering career hasn’t been entirely without controversy. The quarterback famously received a four-game suspension for his alleged role in the football-tampering scandal known as Deflategate. Yet by the end of the same 2016 season, he’d dramatically turned things around. Brady not only helped the Patriots win Super Bowl LI, but he also picked up the MVP, too.
