'Look to the skies and remember': Former President Bush reminds Americans of unity after 9/11

  'Look to the skies and remember': Former President Bush reminds Americans of unity after 9/11 Former President George W. Bush on Saturday recalled the unity and strength Americans showed after the Sept. 11 attacks.“So much of our politics has become a naked appeal to anger, fear and resentment," Bush said. “On America’s day of trial and grief, I saw millions of people instinctively grab their neighbor’s hand and rally to the cause of one another.

As Pro Football Talk's Mike Florio noted, it was 20 years ago Thursday when a young quarterback named Tom Brady replaced an injured Drew Bledsoe while with the New England Patriots. The rest, as the saying goes, is history.

Brady went on to earn six Super Bowl rings with the Patriots before he joined the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in March 2020 and then put a seventh title on his resume. The 44-year-old admitted when speaking with reporters the time has gone "pretty fast" during his unprecedented career.

  Tom Brady teases he could play until he's 50 Brady visibly isn't slowing down and earned FedEx Air Player of the Week honors after he threw for 379 passing yards with four touchdowns in last Thursday's season-opening win over the Dallas Cowboys. It was an eventful day...QB Tom Brady won FedEx Air Player of the Week, P Bradley Pinion won NFC Special Teams Player of the Week & Jordan Whitehead returned to practice.

"I don’t think anyone thinks 20 years ago where their life would be," Brady explained, according to Ryan Gaydos of Fox News. "I certainly don’t think in my wildest dreams I could’ve imagined what’s happened. I am just very appreciative and grateful for all of the different things that have happened over time. Really, it’s just about the support system of people. My teammates over 20 years, my coaches, my family, my friends — I just have great memories."

He continued:

"Sports have a great way of bringing people together, and I think for my family still. It still has allowed everyone to come [together]. Like two weeks ago, I had everyone here for the opener, which was a lot of fun. It’s been a great journey."

  Bill Belichick thinks Tom Brady can play until age 50 Bill Belichick and Tom Brady are about to face off against each other for the first time next weekend. So the Patriots head coach and the Buccaneers quarterback are expected to be asked a lot of questions about each other ahead of the reunion. © Kirby Lee-USA TODAY Sports WEEI 93.7 in Boston got that ball rolling on Monday morning when Belichick joined the broadcast. The first matter of business? Brady's recent remarks that he could play until he is 50 years old."I’m sure Tom would know better than anybody, so if anybody can do it it’s him," Belichick said. Will @TomBrady play until he's 50?"I think I can.

Brady recently teased he could continue playing until he's 50, and he enters Week 3 leading the NFL with nine touchdown passes, per ESPN stats. Those who know anything about Brady understand he's currently focused only on notching a victory at the Los Angeles Rams on Sunday to put the Bucs at 3-0 on the season.

Would the Patriots still have won big if Tom Brady didn’t take pay cuts?

  Would the Patriots still have won big if Tom Brady didn’t take pay cuts? The Tom Brady-Patriots marriage is one of the most complicated relationships in NFL history. One of the bigger fallacies surrounding the Patriots’ 20-season run with Brady, though, is the notion they needed their quarterback to consistently take pay cuts to be able to construct championship-contending teams. While Brady routinely took less money than his contemporaries — one analysis by Business Insider estimated he left $60 million-$100 million on the table — the effect it had on the Patriots’ ability to build a franchise that went 249-75 during his tenure is exaggerated. Brady’s discounts theoretically only added 1.62-2.
