Tom Brady is uniquely qualified to discuss what Aaron Rodgers is going through. In fact, Brady is the only person who truly understands what Rodgers is going through
and what the Jets' new quarterback is hoping to achieve during his time in New York following an 18-year run with the Green Bay Packers.
Three years ago, Brady became the first starting quarterback to win a Super Bowl after turning 40, a small fraternity Rodgers can join if he wins a ring with Gang Green.
Brady, based on what he's seen from Rodgers during his brief time in New York, is optimistic that Rodgers' time in the Big Apple will be memorable for both the quarterback as well as his new team.
"There's a different energy about it. It's a newness," Brady said on his podcast when talking about joining a new team late in your career, via ESPN.
"It's a fresh start to try to take where you're been, to bring all the good and then not to bring the tough lessons, you know?
Because sometimes the tough lessons always remain unless you work through them, you know? So it's like you go through a lot of years at one place and there's a lot of,
I would say, mental scar tissue, from losses or relationships, or certain experiences. Oh, this guy had said this once, or that teammate, or this coach or general manager.
Now you go to a new place and you have none of that. So now you can just hopefully bring your best knowing that you probably didn't do everything right where you were,
but you tried your best. And now you get to go to a new place with a different type of emotional energy. And I'm excited for him.
"He'll be invigorated. Looks like he's having a good time up to this year. I know he's been engaged in the offseason, which is always great, and really trying to connect with his teammates.
So I'm excited to see what he does. They have a really good team. They have a really good offense.
And, you know, Aaron's been, when he's got good receivers, man, it's pretty dangerous. ... I think he's gonna have a great year."
