Tom Brady, speaking on just two hours of sleep after leading the Tampa Bay Buccaneers to a Super Bowl triumph, said on Monday the Covid-19 restrictions in place during the NFL season ultimately provided him with a breeding ground for excellence.
Given the many protocols in place to limit the spread of the virus, Brady took full advantage of the opportunity and ramped up his already tireless work ethic and insatiable dedication to sharpening his craft.
“In a unique way it was kind of like, with the coronavirus situation and all the protocols, it was really like football for junkies,” seven-time Super Bowl champion Brady told a video news conference.
“There was not really a lot of other things to do other than show up to work and play football. Normally there is a lot of other things that go along with playing football.
So if you love football, this was the year to be a player in the NFL because that’s all it was. It was like football camp with all your buddies year-round so I really enjoyed that part.”
Brady also added “you have to overcome adversity” to do anything great–or Excellent.
