Today, Friday, August 3, marks New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady’s 35th Birthday. And despite his urge to continue learning and improving, he certainly has a lot to celebrate, and be proud of, too.
Ever since he became a member of the National Football League, Brady has won three Super Bowl titles, and five American Football Conference championships. He’s also a seven-time Pro Bowler and two-time First-Team All-Pro.
Since the Patriots drafted him in 2000, he’s tallied 39,979 passing yards, 300 touchdowns, and 3,397 completions.
His best year as a pro came during the 2007 season when he broke the single-season touchdown record with 50 strikes to the end zone. Randy Moss collected 23 touchdowns that year, which catapulted him past Jerry Rice as the single-season leader in touchdown receptions.
Last season, Brady led his unit to Super Bowl XLVI, but sadly, the outcome was rather similar to Super Bowl XLII, as the New York Giants defeated New England, 21-17.
This year, the New England gunslinger seems more poised than ever, and certainly appears hungry for his fourth ring.
The Patriots begin their season on Sunday, September 9, when they travel to Tennessee to face the Titans.
