Tom Brady compared football with military deployment on his weekly podcast, for which Brady issues an apology. Brady is a seven-time Super Bowl champion. At the moment, he was conversing with NBA player Kevin Durant.
On the SiriusXM podcast “Let’s Go!,” the Tampa Bay Buccaneers quarterback claimed he made a “really horrible choice of words.” While he and Durant discussed the challenge of juggling a commitment to becoming highly successful sportsmen with lives outside of athletics, he said, “With Tom Brady, Larry Fitzgerald, and Jim Gray.
I made a remark about playing football and the military earlier this week. It was a terrible word choice,” Brady added. I want to say that I’m sorry for any offending feelings that may have been conveyed in a certain way.
On Monday, Durant joined the show as a guest.
“There’s just one way to do it. I almost think of a football season as military deployment, and it’s like, ‘Man, here I go again. … You can only be true to yourself, isn’t that the truth? On the podcast, Brady said: ”
According to Brady, “your competitiveness takes over, and as much as you want to have this playful balance with the professional balance, you’re going to wind up doing precisely what you’ve always done, which is why you are who you are. How do I achieve this? ”
Brady was chosen by the Patriots in the sixth round of the 2000 NFL Draft, 199th overall, after playing college football at Michigan. He later gained the reputation of being the league’s biggest draught steal. As the team’s primary starter for eighteen seasons, Brady led the Patriots to seventeen division titles (including eleven consecutive from 2009 to 2019), 13 AFC Championship Games (including eight consecutive from 2011 to 2018), nine Super Bowl appearances, and six Super Bowl titles—all NFL records for a player and franchise. In his second season, the Patriots won their first Super Bowl title in Super Bowl XXXVI. His achievements now stand at ten Super Bowl appearances and seven triumphs when he joined the Buccaneers in 2020 and guided them to Super Bowl LV victory.
Nearly every significant quarterback record, such as passing yards, completions, touchdown passes, and games started, is held by Brady. He is the NFL leader in career quarterback wins, regular season quarterback wins, playoff quarterback wins, and Super Bowl MVP honors, and he is the only Super Bowl MVP for two separate franchises. He has never had a losing season.
Just 40 days after initially declaring his retirement, on March 13, 2022, Brady decided to rejoin the Buccaneers for the upcoming campaign. Brady started the season opener for the Buccaneers versus the Dallas Cowboys, making NFL history as the oldest quarterback to do so. Brady had 35 pass completions on 52 attempts for 351 passing yards and a score against the Atlanta Falcons in Week 5.
American professional basketball player Kevin Wayne Durant, popularly known by his initials KD, plays for the Brooklyn Nets of the National Basketball Association (NBA). In the 2007 NBA Draft, the Seattle SuperSonics selected him as the second overall choice after one season of collegiate basketball for the Texas Longhorns. Before joining the Golden State Warriors in 2016, he spent nine seasons with the team before it changed its name to the Oklahoma City Thunder in 2008. He won back-to-back NBA titles in 2017 and 2018. He signed with the Nets as a free agent in the summer of 2019 after suffering an Achilles injury during the 2019 championships. Many people consider Durant to be one of the all-time best players.
On June 30, 2022, it was revealed that Durant had asked the Brooklyn Nets for a trade. Durant canceled his desire for trade on August 24, 2022, following a meeting with Nets management.
On Thursday, the quarterback was questioned about his argument on the podcast.
Honestly, I don’t want to go into too much detail. I am incredibly grateful to every single person who served in the military, Brady remarked.
Brady continued, “At the end of the day, we play a game, and the military is defending our nation. “I shouldn’t have drawn the connection; they are two completely different things.”
