The 2008 season was great to watch. However I always felt I was missing something. As a Tom Brady fan NFL Football was not the same. That something was Tom Brady. His record setting season of 2007 was remarkable. With 50 touchdowns and a Superbowl appearance Brady solidified himself as one of the greatest of all time. His team was great but his individual performance each and every week was historical. Some say he is the greatest of all time.
Just imagine for a moment, you are sitting in your favorite sports pub on a Sunday afternoon. The beers are going down like water and your team is up by 2 touchdowns at the half. You look up at the big screen that dangles above your head. You see the greatest quarterback in the NFL fall to his knees. Will Tom Brady Superbowl redemption portray a heroic man or will this be the end of a promising season. This was reality in 2008.
Can you imagine what he could have accomplished last year with the bitter taste of a Superbowl defeat still fresh in his mouth. He didn't have the opportunity to redeem himself after this crushing defeat. Tom Brady's determination to be the best is matched by few in football. Can you imagine the intensity in his eyes when he steps on the field. His drive to be the best combined with last years disappointments would have been disasterous for any opposing defense.
I believe they would have not only made a second straight Superbowl appearance but would be victorious. If he was healthy, Tom Brady would have found a way to win because winning is what he is all about. Get excited about what this man will accomplish in 2009. Get your popcorn ready, sit back and watch a legend.
With the world watching, Tom Brady and the New England Patriots have a chance to not only win another Superbowl but defeat a team they dreamed about all summer long. It's the rematch that we all wanted to see. For Tom Brady it's a day he has only seen in his dreams. On a day when dreams do come true Tom Brady can finally erase the nightmare that was Superbowl 43. Just imagine.
