Brady played college football for the University of Michigan. After playing for the University of Michigan, he became the 199th player selected in the 2000 NFL Draft by the New England Patriots. Because he was selected late in the draft and having a good career, he is seen as a draft steal.[2][3][4] Brady started playing in 2001 when Drew Bledsoe, another Patriots quarterback, got hurt, leading the Patriots to a Super Bowl win in XXXVI (36). He became the starter for the next 19 years, winning 5 more Super Bowls with the Patriots. He was traded to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in 2020, and won a Super Bowl the same year.

Early lifeEdit

Thomas Edward Patrick Brady Jr. was born on August 3, 1977 in San Mateo, California. He was the only son of four children.[5] He was brought up as in the Catholic religion. Two of his great-grandfathers were refugees.[6]

Brady grew up a fan of the San Francisco 49ers, and went to many games at Candlestick Park. His most–loved player was quarterback Joe Montana.[7] As a child, Brady went to football camp at the College of San Mateo. He started becoming good at throwing a football being taught by Tony Grazini, a future quarterback in the NFL.[8]

NFL careerEdit

2000–2007: First year and Super Bowl winsEdit

2000: First yearEdit

Brady was chosen with pick number 199 in the sixth round in the 2000 NFL Draft.[9] He watched the draft with his family, who were thinking he was going to be chosen in the second or third round. But six quarterbacks were chosen before him, which made him leave the family home.[10]

Brady started the season as the fourth quarterback, behind starting quarterback Drew Bledsoe and backup quarterbacks John Friesz and Michael Bishop. But at the end of the season, he was moved behind Bledsoe as the second quarterback.[11]

2001: Second year, first year starting and Super Bowl winEdit

Bledsoe was still the starting quarterback at the beginning of the 2001 New England Patriots season. They started with a loss to the Cincinnati Bengals. They played their second game in their home stadium against their AFC East rival New York Jets. During the fourth quarter of the game, Bledsoe was hit by Mo Lewis, which caused him to bleed inside his body. Brady played in this game, where they lost 3–10.[12] Brady became the starter for the team for the rest of the season. He started his first game against the Indianapolis Colts, where the Patriots won 44–13.[13][14]

In the fifth game of the season, the Patriots were down 26–16 in the fourth quarter. Brady got a touchdown and a field goal on two tries in a row to bring the game to overtime. Then, he got the Patriots to try a field goal, which they made to win.[15][16] Brady went on to win 11 out of 14 games he started, and the team had an 11–5[a] record. This made them pass the Wild Card round in the playoffs.[17]

In his first playoff game, Brady passed for 312 yards in a 16–13 win against the Oakland Raiders.[18] They won the game with an Adam Vinatieri field goal. This game is famous for a play that was argued against. Down by 3 points, Brady tried to pass the ball, but was hit by another player and lost the ball. It was taken by a Raiders player. However, the play did not count because of a rule. The rule is that if any passer brings the ball back to their body and it is lost, it is not a fumble but is a missed pass.[19]

In the championship game of the American Football Conference against the Pittsburgh Steelers, Brady hurt his knee and Bledsoe started playing. The Patriots won the game 24–17, going to XXXVI (36) to play against the St. Louis Rams.[20]

In Super Bowl XXXVI, sports betting groups in Las Vegas had the Rams to win the game.[21] Brady and the Patriots played well in the first three quarters. However, the Patriots did not stop the Rams when they scored to come back when they were down 17–3. The Patriots got the ball with one minute and thirty seconds left. Sportscaster—someone who speaks while sports games are playing—and former NFL coach John Madden said the Patriots should end the game and go to overtime.[22] But, the Patriots did not do that, and went down the field and made a field goal to win the Super Bowl 20–17.[23] Brady was chosen as Super Bowl MVP and became the youngest quarterback in NFL history to win a Super Bowl.[24][25]

2002 seasonEdit

In between the 2001 season and the 2002 season, quarterback Drew Bledsoe was moved to the Buffalo Bills.[26] Brady played good in the first game of the season. The NFL gave him an AFC Offensive Player of the Week award.[27][28] But the Patriots would not do well, going 9–7 and not making the playoffs.[29] He had the most passing touchdowns in the NFL with 28.[30]

2003 and 2004 seasons: Winning back-to-back Super BowlsEdit

At the start of the 2003 season, the Patriots had a 2–2 record. Brady would then lead the team to twelve wins in a row, ending the season 14–2.[31] Even though he was a quarterback, he punted the ball in a game against the Miami Dolphins.[32] He was third place in MVP voting.[33]

The Patriots would skip the Wild Card round of the playoffs. They would play the Tennessee Titans in the Divisional Round. The Patriots would win that game 17–14. After that, they went to the AFC Championship Game, and played the the Indianapolis Colts, whose quarterback was Peyton Manning. The Patriots would win that game 24–14 to go to Super Bowl XXXVIII. In that game, they would go against Carolina Panthers. They won that game 32–29 after Brady went down the field and allowed Adam Vinatieri to kick a field goal. Brady was given the Super Bowl MVP award for the second time.[34]

In the 2004 season, Brady would help the team to another 14–2 record. That would be the best record for any team after winning a Super Bowl.[35]

In the playoffs, they would go against the Indianapolis Colts, a team they beat last year in the AFC Championship Game. They would win again 20–3. They would go to the AFC Championship Game again and would play against the Pittsburgh Steelers. They beat the Steelers 41–27 to go to Super Bowl XXXIX.[36] Brady played the game with a fever[37] In the Super Bowl, they would play against the Philadelphia Eagles. The Eagles had the best defense in the NFL in 2004. The Patriots would win the game 24–21 and would be back-to-back champions. The last time that happened was Dallas Cowboys Super Bowl wins.[38]

2005 and 2006 seasonsEdit

In 2005, the Patriots suffered lots of hurt players. Many of them were on offense. This made the Patriots have to make Brady pass more.[39][40] Even with a lot of hurt players, the Patriots won their division and had a 10–6 record.[41]

In the playoffs, Brady played against the Jacksonville Jaguars. The Patriots won 28–3. In the Divisional Round, they played against the Denver Broncos. They would lose this game 13–27. This would be Brady's first loss in the playoffs.[42]

In the playoffs, they went up against the New York Jets, another team in the Patriots' division. They beat the Jets 37–16. Brady threw the ball 212 yards and threw 2 touchdowns.[18][44] After this game, the Patriots went to San Diego to play a game against the San Diego Chargers. In the fourth quarter of this game, the Patriots were behind by 8 points. The Patriots got the football with 8 minutes left in the game. On a fourth down, Brady threw an interception to Marlon McCree. But Patriots wide receiver Troy Brown made McCree drop the ball. The ball was picked up by a Patriots player and got the Patriots a first down.[45] After this, the Patriots would score a touchdown and then make a 2-point conversion to tie the game. The next time the Patriots got the ball, Brady threw the ball 49-yards. This made it easy for a field goal, which had the Patriots in the lead with one minute remaining. The Chargers would be able to get into range for a field goal try, but kicker Nate Kaeding missed it. The Patriots would go to the AFC Championship Game against the Indianapolis Colts for a chance to go to Super Bowl XLI. The Patriots played well in the first half of the game. They scored 21 points, and the Colts scored 6. But, quarterback Peyton Manning led the Colts to take the lead. Brady would throw an interception to lose the game 34–38. Brady threw the ball 232 yards, threw one touchdown and one interception.[18] [46]

2007 season: Pefect season, Brady gets an MVPEdit

In 2007, the Patriots had a lot of good wide receivers. The players that were very good were Donté Stallworth, Wes Welker, Kelley Washington, and Randy Moss. The Patriots also had a good tight end Kyle Brady and a running back Sammy Morris. During the 2007 season, a lot of sportswriters thought Brady had one of the best years as a quarterback.[47][48] Brady helped the Patriots get to the first and only 16–0 season in NFL history.[49] In a win against the Dallas Cowboys, he threw five touchdowns in his highest ever to that time in his career. Brady's win against the Cowboys tied a record with Roger Staubach for most wins in 100 games starting.[50] But just next week, Brady would throw six touchdowns, the highest a Patriots quarterback had ever thrown, and have a perfect passer rating.[51] Two weeks later, Brady threw for three touchdowns for the ninth time in a row, breaking Peyton Manning's NFL record of eight.[52] During the last game of the season against the New York Giants, Brady threw his 50th touchdown of the season, breaking Peyton Manning's record of 49, an NFL record.[53]

But the Patriots still won the game, going to Super Bowl XLII. That win gave Brady his 100th win, and broke an NFL record for the number of games it took for a quarterback to reach 100 wins.[56]

In Super Bowl XLII, Brady took five sacks. The Patriots took the lead with three minutes left in the fourth quarter. But the Giants scored a touchdown. They were helped with a great catch. The Giants beat the Patriots 17–14, not giving the Patriots the second perfect season in NFL history.[57]
