We know Brady thought his season was over when he picked it up in practice, but in typical Patriots style the precious thumb was never exposed to the public eye.

"I've really enjoyed it", he said. It would be a great career - 18 years in the National Football League.' I learned a lot and it's been such a great love for me.

The QB said that coming off last year's remarkable Super Bowl comeback against the Falcons, it felt like the right time to show more of himself off the field.

As you probably heard at the time, Brady suffered a gash on his thumb just four days before the game. But I gave everything I had. I am proud of our efforts throughout the year. "We were just a couple plays short". The footage continued with highlights and lowlights from Brady's performance in the Super Bowl, including his last pass, which landed incomplete, just out of the reach of superstar tight end Rob Gronkowski. I said to them, 'This is a great lesson.

"I think you realize the sun comes up the next morning and your life goes on, but those games live with you for the rest of your life", Brady said.

Of course, Gronkowski returned for the Super Bowl and caught nine passes for 116 yards, including two touchdowns.

On the Super Bowl, Brady laments that he couldn't make the catch on a first-quarter trick play or hold onto the ball before an Eagles strip-sack late in the fourth quarter.

"When I hurt my thumb, I though, 'This is it".

"I wasn't sure, I really wasn't", Brady said in January.

"That part is really hard to give up, especially when I feel like I can do it and I look around the league and I see these other quarterbacks and I'm thinking, 'Man, I can do what they do.' I want to continue to do it the best I can because it really brings a lot of joy to my life".

Whatever Brady did to fix his thumb ended up working because he threw for 290 yards and two touchdowns in a 24-20 win over the Jaguars.

The report also stated that Brady was "less than fine" with criticism from Belichick throughout the season, stemming from the Patriots' playoff win against the Houston Texans in 2017.

OK, we already knew this.

The New England Patriots player spoke with Good Morning America's Michael Strahan on Monday about being a father of three, a devoted husband to Gisele Bundchen and one of the most acclaimed quarterbacks in the NFL. Gronk didn't play in the second half due to a concussion, but said he was feeling better when Gisele asked for an update.
