Who did Tom Brady call the morning after he and the Bucs won the Super Bowl?
He rang up his quarterbacks coach Clyde Christensen. Tom reportedly said to Clyde, “Hey, I didn’t see you after the game. I just wanted to tell you thanks and what a great journey and how much I appreciated everything you did. The second thing he said: ‘I was just sitting here thinking, and I think we can really be better next year. I think we’re going to be a better team.’
Clyde is just amazed by how his quarterback’s mind works. That’s the mindset of true champion. That’s how his mind works. “He’s thinking about it the next morning,” Christensen said. “He’s barely been in a couple hours, and he’s thinking about it the next morning. The thing that happens is, teams get distracted. Everyone is trying to make a little more money. Everyone has something going. Some have got a little book deal. They’ve got radio shows going. That doesn’t happen to the Bradys or the Mannings of the world. They don’t get distracted. They don’t get off track.”
We are six months away from regular season NFL games, but that’s enough to get us excited about next season!
