ugg mini classic 25 stats that define Patriots quarterback Tom Brady
By now, the story of Tom Brady’s career is well known: An unheralded pro prospect gets overlooked in the draft, rushed into duty after an injury and, seemingly overnight, becomes a generational superstar whose name belongs among the game’s all time legends. The list of Brady’s accolades is unrivaled and, love him or resent him, he is undisputedly one of the best quarterbacks the NFL has ever seen.
This season in particular has been an exceptional one for the 17 year veteran. At age 39, Brady posted a 112.2 passer rating in the regular season second best of his career and had a career low 0.5 percent interception rate (two picks in 432 pass attempts). After a strong showing in the playoffs, he is now one win away from his fifth championship ring. The breakdown begins with the lowest figure and works up to the highest,
providing context for the stats that have made Brady the future Hall of Famer he is today.
In 237 regular season games, Brady has completed touchdown passes to an astounding 65 different players. The most recent “new” player to catch a scoring toss from Brady is Michael Floyd, who caught a touchdown pass in Week 17’s 35 14 win over Miami. The player with the most Brady touchdowns? That would be Rob Gronkowski, with 67. Second on the list is Randy Moss, who caught 39 touchdown passes from Brady in 36 games (Brady did not throw a touchdown in 2008 after suffering a season ending knee injury in Week 1).
Forbes reported Brady’s total earnings for 2016 at $44 million, ranking him 54th among the 100 richest celebrities of the year. That ties him with Floyd Mayweather and puts him ahead of people like Jerry Seinfeld, Ben Affleck and Sofia Vergara. Combine his earnings with supermodel wife Gisele Bndchen, who earned over $30 million in 2016, and the Brady family did quite well for itself financially this season. Adding a fifth Super Bowl title would make for the perfect cherry on top.
