There are many reasons that Tom Brady has put together arguably the greatest career of any quarterback in NFL History. One of the main driving forces behind his success has to be his underdog mentality.
Brady has been out to prove critics wrong from the moment he fell to the sixth round of the 2000 NFL Draft. He’s done a great job of accomplishing that goal, winning six championships and three MVP awards.
With the offseason underway in the NFL, the main storyline to follow is whether or not Brady will leave the New England Patriots. Regardless of what he chooses to do in free agency, the 42-year-old quarterback is out to prove he can still play at a high level.
In fact, Brady shared an emphatic message for anyone that doesn’t believe he can compete at this stage of his career, saying “I’m grateful for you doubting me and I’m determined to prove you wrong again.”

It’s certainly possible that Brady leaves the Patriots this offseason. On the other hand, he could decide to stay with the franchise that drafted him two decades ago.
Brady doesn’t have much left to accomplish in his career. He has all the personal accolades and rings to send him into the Hall of Fame once he’s eligible.
The fact that Brady feels the need to prove critics wrong at this point is just a testament to his competitive nature.
Do you think Brady will be back on top by the end of next season?
