Naturally, Tom Brady wants to lead the Bucs to a win against the Packers this weekend.
But he’s also seeking revenge against Aaron Rodgers after Rodgers beat him in a golf match.
“He beat me on the golf course, which I didn’t like,” Brady said. “We played nine holes of golf and he made a putt at the end to win, so I was a little pissed about that…I always enjoy my time around him. Still trying to get him back on the golf course, though.”
Before that, Brady will get Rodgers back on the football field, for only the third time ever. The football game on Sunday will only be the third time these two legendary QB’s have faced one another.
“I think there’s a lot to like about his play and his ability to pass the football,” Brady said about Rodgers. “I think everybody is always pretty much in awe of how he makes it look so easy — just the throwing motion, the velocity on the ball, the placement of the ball [and] how quickly the ball gets from his hand to the receiver’s hands. It’s been unbelievable to watch over the years and he’s really kept it going. He’s a great passer. He’s very efficient. His touchdown-to-interception ratio — he basically doesn’t throw interceptions and throws a lot of touchdowns. His decision making is just phenomenal, and when you do that at quarterback, it always puts your team in a position to win. You’ve got to keep from making mistakes and then obviously to throw as many touchdowns as he has, scramble for touchdowns and his ability as a mobile quarterback to buy more time for his receivers is pretty unbelievable too. There’s a lot of great things to say about his game. He’s one of the great quarterbacks to ever play the game.”
