David Andrews on how Tom Brady’s standard is still being met today
“Being a part of those teams and the whole community, the fans, I mean, you know, I don’t know if there will ever be anyone to do what he accomplished and what some of those teams accomplished. So, you know, it started with him, his leadership, his mentality, the way he pushed people. It was contagious. It was it was special. So, you know, excited to see him. He deserves everything he gets and tenfold of that.
“I definitely think so and I think it’s something that you know what it looks like. And it wasn’t just Tom. He obviously set the standard right. And no one did it better than that. But you saw that standard trickled down to every single player. And I think that’s a huge thing. So, you know what it looks like. You know what that standard needs to be. And that’s what you strive for every day.”
