Tom Brady Reminds Us Just How Long He’s Been Dominating The NFL
On Saturday, Thomas Edward Patrick Brady will start in his 32nd career playoff game for the New England Patriots when they take on the Houston Texans in the divisional round of the playoffs. It's an astounding feat that reminds us not only how long he's been at it, but also how long he's been one of the best at it.
In order to rack up that many playoff starts, you must win a whole lot, and it appears that Brady won't stop until he has a championship ring for every finger.
The Patriots still have two tough games to win if they want to send Brady and head coach Bill Belichick to their seventh Super Bowl appearance together, but if Brady's latest post to his new Instagram account is any indication, he is as fired up as he's ever been.

The caption on the post reads as follows:
The Patriots are notoriously strict adherents to the "one game at a time" motto, so Brady's reference to Saturday's game as Week 1 means that the team is has put the regular season out of their minds. And this photo of that infamous snow game against the Raiders is a potent reminder of how long that Belichick-enforced philosophy has worked.
And I'll tell you right now, Brady's decision to post a photo from the "tuck rule game" which detractors have ensured has followed him his entire career - is definitely not just out of nostalgia. It's been said time and again that Brady is never better than when he has a chip on his shoulder, and he knows that better than anyone. Which is why he always finds as many reasons as possible to keep it there.
