His rookie season doesn’t count because Drew Bledsoe was still the starter.
Meanwhile, 2008 is also an aberration because he suffered an injury in Week 1.
He had 13 seasons of at least 4,000 yards throughout his career, including two seasons of more than 5,000 yards.
He joined the 5,000-yard club in 2011 with 5,235 yards and 39 touchdowns for the New England Patriots.
A decade later, he had 5,316 yards and 43 touchdowns for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.
While his 2012 stats are not as good as those seasons, he still put up solid numbers that year.
However, this fantasy football fanatic thinks that Brady had a down season.
2012? 4800 yds 34 touchdowns 8 picks. Sorry you had to go through that man 😂 https://t.co/EhcvIjCppM

SportsCenter shared a video of a dad who has kept his fantasy football draft boards from 1999.
He then pulled out his draft board from 2012 and revealed that Aaron Rodgers was their top overall pick.
His daughter asked, “Who did you take?”
The dad answered, “I picked Tom Brady,” much to their dismay.
When the daughter mentioned, “That’s embarrassing,” the dad said, “TB gag.”
To which Brady responded, “2012? 4800 yds 34 touchdowns 8 picks. Sorry you had to go through that man.”
The seven-time Super Bowl winner is taking it in good light because he did have 4,827 yards and a 12-4 regular season record that year.
Brady Keeps On Piling Up Records
As long as he plays, he will add to the NFL records he already possesses, including most passing yards and touchdowns.
He could also maintain another record by defeating the Dallas Cowboys in Week 1.
Doing so will improve his record against Dallas to 7-0.
His first five wins against the Cowboys came when he was with the Patriots.
The last one was their 2021 season opener, wherein he threw for 379 yards and four touchdowns in a 31-29 thriller.
