Tampa Bay Buccaneers Quarterback Tom Brady is a master motivator. He’ll use just about anything to give himself an edge. During an appearance on HBO’s The Shop, Tom made a comment that to this very day, still has people guessing who he was talking about. Tom was shocked to learn that an unnamed team had decided to stick with its current quarterback, rather than extend Brady a contract offer.

Now Tom is talking about it, and why he said what he said.
Via Boston Herald:
“There’s private things for me that are going to remain motivational for me,” Brady said in an interview with Jim Gray, via the Boston Herald. “They know who they are . . . it’s fine. Everyone has a choice to choose. I think what you realize is, there’s not as many smart people as you think. That’s just the reality. I think it’d be a no-brainer if you said, ‘Hey, you’ve got a chance to get Wayne Gretzky on your team, or you got a chance to have Michael Jordan on your team.’ . . . ‘Oh, we don’t need him, no thanks. We’re good.’
“In my mind, I’m kind of thinking, ‘OK, let me go show those teams what they’re missing.’ At the same time, let me go prove to the team that did bet on me, and the team that really showed they really wanted me, and committed to me, that I’m not going to let them down.”
