Though there is little that Brady needs to motivate himself, this season will offer one of the few opportunities to prove something he has never done before — beat the New England Patriots.
Some insiders believe that Brady will be extra motivated to defeat the team, including former teammate Tedy Bruschi.
“Those emotions, they’re just a fire in there that he’s always had. He’ll feel it, and he’ll want to crush the New England Patriots,” Bruschi said on ESPN’s Get Up .”He’ll want to score 30 to 40 points. That’s just who he is, no matter if it’s a divisional rival or it’s his old team. Brady will be emotionally, possibly, out of control at times.”
