BOSTON (WBZ-AM) — Patriots-Chiefs Sunday—New England's eighth straight trip to the AFC title game. A win would advance Tom Brady to his ninth Super Bowl.
Pats owner Robert Kraft sat down with ESPN and remembered the first time he met his star QB back in 2000.
"Skinny young man, coming down the steps of the old stadium with a pizza box and introducing himself to me," Kraft said. "I said, 'I know who you are, you're Tom Brady from Michigan, our sixth-round draft choice.' And he said, 'And I'm the best decision this organization has ever made.' And of course, he was fourth on the depth chart, but I think he sure was right."
Kraft has no doubts about Brady's legacy.
"The greatest player of all time, not just quarterback," Kraft said. "For someone double the age of some of the players to be able to lead like that and connect like that and have the work ethic that he has, and at the same time so pleasant to be around, I'm really the luckiest guy in the world."
Kraft said Brady's the same guy he was when he entered the NFL. Genuine, kind, caring, polite, and no one works harder or watches more film.
