Tom Brady might not be in your top five.
But he knows he has at least two polls that have him No. 1.
“My wife thinks I play pretty good, my mom thinks I play pretty good,” Brady said, via CSNNE.com, “so that doesn’t matter.”
Brady was able to laugh about the annual summertime rankings, and his place in them, acknowledging that the critics don’t necessarily “fire him up.”
“Umm, I’m always pretty fired up so, I think there’s people that always have opinions about us as athletes,” Brady said. “You just try to go out there and do your best and go home and hope that you left it all on the field.
“Some days you don’t play your best, but that’s sports. I’ll try to go out there and be the best I can be this year. Were they Jets fans, or Dolphins fans, or Bills fans? Patriot fans? I don’t know. Everyone’s a little biased.”
Of course, so are his wife and his mom, but those are the opinions he’s chosen to put stock into.
