Tom Brady: Patriots Quarterback Brady Concedes He's an 'Emotional Person'
Tom Brady Defends His Teary-Eyed "Brady 6" Moment
The current NFL MVP, Tom Brady, has had a very busy offseason this year. He's been spotted in Rio de Janeiro showing off his terrible dance moves at the Carnival, been named as the lead plaintiff in the player's lawsuit against the NFL, seen at the Kentucky Derby with an ugly hat and shown crying in an ESPN special "Brady 6."
Brady took the time to defend himself and his tears during an appearance promoting Under Armour, per NFL.com:
I'm an emotional person. Sometimes I can't help it. The (2000) draft was tough, and it's tough for a lot of guys. You have these high expectations that you're going to be picked at a certain place and then it doesn't happen. But I was thinking -- you know, my parents were there with me. And I have such a great relationship with them. They've been to so many of my games and practices and supported me over the years, and just thinking about sharing that moment with them, and then seeing the excitement that we've had for an 11-year career, I think that's the emotional part of it.
While some people continue to give Brady a hard time for that tear-jerking moment when he recalled the events that occurred that fateful day when he fell all the way to the sixth round of the draft and was picked 199th overall, I am not one of them.
Brady has had a chip on his shoulder since that day and has played like he has had something to prove each and every time he goes on the field. It's what drives him and what makes him one of the best quarterbacks of his generation.
He earned his right as a Hall of Famer with three Super Bowl rings and two Super Bowl MVP's.
If he wants to cry to think back about how he has overcome those such odds to get where he is, let him.
