New England Patriots Super Bowl Champs

Brady Hopes His 30’s are Even Better Than His 20’s


One of the great QB’s, and a for sure Hall of Famer turned 30 years old Friday, as Tom Brady celebrated leaving his 20’s and hoping for even more success as he turns the Big 3-0.  Of course with age comes some wear and tear, and Brady is the first to admit that the rigors of camp get a little old.  “Feels more like 49 right now. Everything’s sore,” Brady said with a smile. “It’s a little different schedule this year too with the two practices one day, then one and then two, which is pretty good for the players because it gives your body a little time to rest. But we’ve practiced for 12 straight days so I think my arm after 12 straight days was calling out for a break. So I’m glad we’ve got that. I’m definitely 30 now, but 30 is a nice birthday.”

Brady, who already holds three Super Bowl rings, knows that the Pats are the so far odds on favorites to win the Super Bowl this season.  With a feast of great off season additions, he knows that this season could be a special one for New England.  “I think it’s really a work in progress,” Brady said.  “I think there’s some things we’re doing better. I was happy, even though Randy [Moss] got hurt on the play, that I overthrew him for the first time in four months. You realize that you can really put the ball out there for him because he just tracks it down so easy. With Donte’, the work we put in the spring he adds a different element to what we do. Wes [Welker] is so quick in the slot. We’re just trying to find a role for those guys and trying to incorporate what they do well into our offense. Hopefully, that makes us more of a threat. We can run the ball. We can play-action pass. We can do a variety of things.”

For now though, Tom will be Tom.  He’ll bounce back quickly from the letdown of last year’s AFC title loss to Indy.  He’ll look to rebound with a new group of solid players hoping to make 2007 one to remember in Foxboro.  Some say that you get better with age.  For Brady, his 20’s were great, but here’s hoping his 30’s will be even better.
