Tom Brady, despite his long list of recognitions once in a generation, looked like a child in a candy store after Sunday's victory in the AFC title. Later, he attributed his emotions to the adversity that New England conquered this season.
In their weekly interview on WEEI's "Mut and Callahan Show" sports radio on Monday, they asked Brady about the exchange and whether it reflects how well the two are doing.
"We always get along very well," said Brady. "We have worked together for 19 years, so we have had the same goals in mind for 19 years, he has been a great mentor in my life, a great coach, he has taught me more than anyone about the game of soccer. to play here and play for him, he's the best coach of all time and we've had incredible moments together. "
Tom Jackson and Keyshawn Johnson badyze what makes the Patriots such a successful franchise.

Belichick and Brady advanced to the Super Bowl as a quarterback tandem for the ninth time, and the Patriots faced the Los Angeles Rams on Sunday, February 3, in Atlanta.
That's part of what caused Brady's emotions to overflow on Sunday.
"That was as emotional of a game as I think I've been, no doubt in a long time," he said in the radio interview. "All the things that happened during the course of the game, to have the chance to win there, like we did, and then remove it was just a great feeling.
"You play sports for many reasons, but something like that that happened last night was a game that we will all remember for the rest of our lives, emotions only take over at that moment, you're not thinking much, you're just sorry I felt very happy for our teammates and coaches and for our entire organization … our families, all those who support us, our fans, it was really a great, great victory, to beat a great football team on the road. in January, it's just an incredible feeling.
