Tampa Bay Buccaneers quarterback Tom Brady is one of the best passers in NFL history. If there is a passing record, there is a high probability that the future Hall of Famer will have it or is about to beat it.
On Monday Night Football, he showed off the lightning speed that we knew was in him all the time.
Tom Brady corrects the reporter on his race against the Giants
During their press conference after the Buccaneers defeated the New York Giants 30-10 on Monday Night Football, the seven-time Super toast-winning quarterback answered a reporter about his run. With the Buccaneers up 7-3 at the Giants early in the second quarter, Brady could not find any of his goals open downfield on a third try and four (yards left).
The quarterback stopped the ball and ran like the wind on a 10-yard run for a first try and was tackled by Giants safety Xavier McKinney.
The speed we saw on Monday night could have made him the men’s 4×100 relay team in the 2020 Olympics in Tokyo or maybe 2024 in Paris. Back at the 2000 NFL Combine, the then Michigan Wolverines prospect ran 5.28 on the 40-yard line.
It was the second slowest time in this year’s combination behind quarterback Chris Redman of Louisville at 5.37.
