Brady contract is done. Brady takes less $$$ to help Pats...

SI.com - Peter King: Patriots win big in Brady deal.

"To be the highest-paid, or anything like that, is not going to make me feel any better. That's not what makes me happy. In this game, the more one player gets, the more he takes away from what others can get. Is it going to make me feel any better to make an extra million, which, after taxes, is about $500,000? That million might be more important to the team.''
- Tom Brady

Yes, that is an actual quote from Tom Brady in the latest Peter King article. How about Brady? Can I tell you how privileged I feel to have this guy on my team (Yes, it's my team).

He got his new contract, 6 years, 60 mil. Not chump change for sure, but still less than Manning and Vick, two quarterbacks who have not done jack when you compare them to Brady's accomplishments. And before you try to talk to me about Manning's stats, here's the only stat that counts if you want to compare Brady to, well, anybody: 4 years as a starter, 3 Superbowl victories.

Yet Brady does not want to kill his team's ability to compete and sign players in order to be the highest paid quarterback in the league. Winning means more to Tom Brady than dollar signs do. How awesome is that? How classy. How refreshing.

I know, I'm gushing a little bit here, but I can't help it. I'm just happy that he's signed and the team friendly way it was done, is just amazing to me.

Tom Brady is the MAN!

I have a good feeling about The Pats this year...
