Tom Brady’s record 10th Super Bowl appearance in two weeks will be his first not in Patriots colors, but that didn’t stop some of his former teammates from raining praise on the all-time quarterback.
Brady’s Tampa Bay Buccaneers made it three straight road playoff victories on Sunday, beating Green Bay, 31-26, in the NFC Championship game. Brady followed three touchdown passes in Tampa’s first six drives with three straight interceptions, but his defense — and some questionable decisions down the stretch by the Packers — helped him double-up every other quarterback in NFL history. (John Elway’s five Super Bowl appearances with the Broncos are second all-time.)
The praise across social media was immediate, and included plenty from those who’d gone to those previous nine Super Bowls at his side. A sampling:

The last club to win back to back Super Bowls was a Tom Brady led Patriots team.— Benjamin Watson (@BenjaminSWatson) January 24, 2021
IF the Chiefs can stamp their ticket to Tampa, that same Tom Brady will be waiting to prevent them from accomplishing the same feat.
Can’t make this stuff up.
