Tom vs Time is shaping up to be really good, and exactly what people expected. Episode 2 ‘s review is gong to be the same as Episode 1. Short breakdown to leave you with enough attention span left over to watch. I’ll run with that style throughout the series.
So here, we get insight into Tom’s mental drive for perfection. With his quarterback coach, he spends countless hours perfecting his trade. “
His coach talks about how with someone that plays at his level, and someone who is as good as he is, they don’t come to get 5% better, they come to get 1% better.
Yep, that is definitely one of the most Tom Brady things I have ever heard. “Ya, I’m here to just get 1% better every single day.” If you can’t hear Brady saying that at a press conference then you have clearly never watched any coverage 30 minutes after a game.
The episode goes on to discuss Brady’s enjoyment, and damn near obsession, with watching film. The guy watches film like 7 days a week. He watches tim on Sunday mornings before games. It’s insane, but it makes total sense. The guy is a perfectionist. Always learning. He made it clear in the episode that physical strength was not going to get him where he needed to be. That it would be his mental abilities and leadership qualities that can drive him and his team to success (100% Pats porn).
Continuing on, the Pats lose to Carolina on a field goal, and Tom once again shows his utter distaste for losing while ripping home in a Rolls Royce truck.
Once home, Brady finishes the episode on his Aston Martin photoshoot with his son.
At times, it is tough to forget that he isn’t a robot. Just some figure that stands above all of New England and the NFL, in his Uggs and on his Aston Martin, with his Under Armour pajamas on and his TB12 hat.
Before I drop the episode, ill leave you with this picture. Its just a quick snapshot of Brady watching the 2007 Super Bowl when he under-threw Randy Moss, and got intercepted in the process. He uses it as a learning point while being visibly agitated at what happened. He said that he will never forget it because the scar tissue is too thick.
It’s the small glimpses into Brady’s mind that make him truly impressive, and help you understand why he is the Greatest NFL player in history, and the Greatest team player of all-time in any sport.
And now, Episode 2:
