Tom Brady Sr.: “I saw the schedule come out last night and I started salivating when I saw that we play the Patriots in the fourth game of the season and that we’re coming up here to make our record 4-0 after the fourth game, so it’s a pretty fun time… They’re all tough -- you look at them and there are no walkovers, but coming back home to Boston, it’s our second home here and the Patriots are our second favorite team. It’s a game we get to root against nobody; we get to root FOR the Patriots but our most-favorite team is of course the Buccaneers. We expect to beat the Patriots rather handily.” (Full Segment Above)
The father of Tom Brady joined NBC Sports Boston on Thursday offering up some juicy bulletin board material in the wake of the NFL’s schedule release that officially pitted the Buccaneers against the Patriots in Week 4.
Brady will make his highly anticipated return to Gillette Stadium on October 3rd in a Sunday Night Football showdown that some are calling the biggest regular-season game in NFL history.
Nosebleed seats to the game are already being rumored to START at $1,000 to see the greatest quarterback of all-time return to his former stomping grounds that he spent season seasons at.
Brady Sr. began the segment saying he was ‘salivating’ when he saw the schedule released, and a date against his son’s former team on the slate with a chance to start the season 4-0, then diplomatically proclaimed the Patriots his second-favorite team and said all NFL games are tough, but then dropped a bomb at the end saying he believes the Bucs will beat New England ‘rather handily.’
