Tom Brady has been in the NFL since the year 2000, and since Drew Bledsoe’s injury against the New York Jets which was and still is an arch rival of the New England Patriots that might have been the more costly mistake the Jets might have ever made.  Brady was drafted by the Patriots in the Sixth round of that years NFL draft and many of players that get drafted that late have a point to prove to be all they can.  At that given time when Brady got to the Patriots facilities he had then told the organization I am the best decision you have ever made.  With all the success that Brady has had in the NFL he stayed true to his word, having to man the ship as their then leader at the time was Drew Bledsoe which he also had an appearance in a previous Super Bowl in 1996 with this Patriots organization the future was in question to whether or not Tom can handle the pressures of the NFL but also be successful at doing so.  Since then Drew Bledsoe has been traded and retired from the league and Tom Brady is now appearing in his 7th AFC Championship game this season where his record is now standing at 5-1 losing one time to the Indianapolis Colts where he faced off against his long-time rival Peyton Manning.  To look at the grand scheme of how Brady’s career has gone in 7 years of his 13 NFL career seasons Brady has gone to the AFC Championship game 50% of the time and more than likely ends up being the face of the AFC on the NFL’s biggest stage.  Truly when you think about this, every team that faces him whether successful or unsuccessful have major concerns on how to rattle the AFC’s best Quarterback.  Debatable standpoints have sport minds stating he is the best to ever play the position, when you really think of the top names in the NFL’s history at quarterback there are only two that come to mind in Joe Montana and Terry Bradshaw who are really the only ones to  have the success rate that Brady has had.  There are other mentionable guys like Dan Marino and Troy Aikman but they have not dominated their respective conferences as much as Tom Brady has.  He does have a bit of pressure on his shoulders at this point his last two Super Bowl appearances have been losses and he has not won a Super Bowl since 2004, and the last AFC Championship game of 2012 the Patriots were fortunate to beat the Baltimore Ravens 23-20 where they actually meet again today on January 20th, 2013 for a rematch of last season’s Super Bowl Ticket stamping game.  He goes up against a familiar foe and NFL All- Pro Linebacker Ray Lewis for the battle of strong offense verses strong defense where this can be Tom’s possible 6th appearance in the Big Game.  Bill Belichick has been one of the best head coaches and defensive minds in the game and when you have a monster of a quarterback that runs your offense like Tom Brady the Dynamic Duo are truly the mind boggling threats as an AFC nightmare.
