NFL Films has been chronicling Tom Brady’s career since he entered the league in 2000. Somehow, they always seem to be new things to reveal.
That is the case with this year’s Super Bowl film, chronicling Brady’s seventh championship and his first with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. The 100-minute film was released to the public byon Tuesday.
“We are always looking for clues about what makes him different and there are a couple that come out in this film,” NFL Films senior producer Todd Schmidt said. “You see more of his commitment to his family and the team. Through the sound on the sideline, you can see how much command he has on the game even when he isn’t playing. You can see his enthusiasm and how much he enjoys camaraderie.”
Brady arrived in Tampa after 20 seasons in New England and led the Buccaneers to their second championship, culminating in an eight-game winning streak capped by a dominating 31-9 victory over the Kansas City Chiefs in Super Bowl 55. Tampa Bay also became the first team to win a Super Bowl title on its home field.
Schmidt said Brady’s progression in acclimating to the vertical passing game of coach Bruce Arians is shown throughout the film, which reviews Tampa Bay’s season.
