Even though Brady was still with the New England Patriots, Carter accurately described his consistency despite playing with a seemingly changing cast of receivers.
“That guy goes like this: ‘Give him a helmet. Can you catch?'”
Brady jumped from one team to another, but his ability to elevate anyone was evident during the Buccaneers’ victory over the Philadelphia Eagles during Super Wild Card Weekend.

He completed a pass to nine different receivers and threw for two touchdowns and zero interceptions.
Regardless of who he plays with, Brady’s attribute of finding ways to win has been his blueprint ever since he started.
A Revolving Door Of Receivers In New England
There are three great acts in Brady’s NFL career.
The first is his early years in New England, while the second is from 2014 to 2019, wherein he won an additional three Super Bowls.
Finally, his stint with Tampa Bay is his third great act.
He played with various groups of receivers throughout those phases.
Thought I would have to tell my future grandkids about @TomBrady one day. At this rate they may get to go to one of his games.

These players went with Brady and learned Bruce Arians’ system because they had no preseason games and training camp in 2020.
After initial struggles, the Buccaneers won their last eight games to win Super Bowl LV.
Gronkowski won his fourth championship while Brown, Godwin, and Evans won their first.

As long as they win, Brady doesn’t care who gets the ball or who gets the credit.
He will find the players that the defense won’t cover to march his team to the end zone continuously.
Combine his unmatched football intelligence with his physical preparation, and it’s no secret why he continues to compete for titles at an age when most players enjoy retirement.
