Once he became the team’s full-time starter in 2001, the Patriots won six Super Bowls and 17 AFC East banners.
It would be difficult to match the level of success he brought to the franchise and he will remain a beloved figure within Massachusetts forever.
Patriots fans couldn’t get enough of him and they came in droves to Gillette Stadium when he made his return, albeit for the visiting team.
He also meant so much to the squad that he and team owner Robert Kraft shared a hug.
But with Brady gone, the Patriots are making their way back to relevance by clinching a playoff berth last season.
Yet as the team moves forward, they are bringing back their iconic red uniform, to which Brady had this response.

The 44-year-old quarterback must have liked this uniform so much, hence his reaction.
The team won nine out of 12 games wearing this elegant uniform from 1994 to 2012.
Before that, the red uniform and the white helmet with the “Pat Patriot” logo was their main uniform from 1960 to 1993.
The Patriots were able to revive this uniform after the NFL scrapped its one-helmet rule in 2021.
When that provision was implemented, combining the white helmet with the team’s current uniforms didn’t look good aesthetically.
Lucky Charm For The Patriots?
Brady helped engineer some of the wins they had while wearing these sleek uniforms.
But with Mac Jones now at the helm, will their luck with these throwback kits continue?
The Patriots do have a formidable roster, making the choice of uniform irrelevant.
However, reintroducing this iconic uniform will help boost jersey sales and invoke nostalgia among older Patriots fans.
