If Tom Brady is trying to get back at Roger Goodell, he isn't admitting it.
After serving a four-game suspension for the "Deflategate" scandal, Brady had a 28-to-2 touchdown-to-interception ratio in the regular season and following that up by booking a ticket to Super Bowl LI with his 384-yard, three-touchdown performance Sunday. Despite the controversial suspension, Brady insists he isn't trying to get back at NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell. Goodell could very well be handing Brady the Lombardi Trophy in a couple of weeks, which would be a fitting end to this saga.
"I have no animosity towards anybody. I'm a very loving person," Brady told Gary Myers of the New York Daily News after Sunday's game when asked about the revenge opportunity. "I want to win for my family and I want to win for my teammates and my coaches and our fans."
Whether it's extra motivation or the fact that he is 39 years old, he just continues to carry on as the league's best player. Brady now has a chance to eclipse Joe Montana and Terry Bradshaw by winning his fifth Super Bowl.
