Tom Brady: Family will play a big part in retirement decision

The fact that Tom Brady was able to lead the Patriots to a comeback win over the Jaguars in the AFC title game might be more impressive now than it was at the time, and that's because we now know how bad the injury was on his right thumb.

Toward the end of the episode, Brady talked about his family life and how he plans to spend his offseason with his supermodel wife and three children. "There is more to think about than just me, and that's what you commit to when you have a family". And they commit a lot to me.

Included in the sixth and final episode of "Tom vs".

"When [Gisele and I] met, I was 29, 30 years old, and I thought 'Man, if I could get to 40, it would be fantastic.' It would be a great career - 18 years in the National Football League, learned a lot, and it's been such a great love for me", Brady said. "That's part of being in a very competitive sport". My oldest son lives here in NY, three kids, and you're just always trying to juggle and you want to be there for them, and you want to be there for the hockey games and the soccer games.

"We overcame a lot of adversity like you always do in order to get to that game but we just came up a little bit short". Retirement sits on the horizon, but when he begins to drift poetic about football, Brady doesn't sound like a guy about to wander away from the gridiron. I gave my best effort.

"It's been such a great love for me", he added. "You reach in different directions and know what feels comfortable, and what's not so comfortable", he said. "I love the sport, I love the competition, I love my teammates, I love working with people that I love to work with". "When you go, 'What are we doing this for?" "I also realize I'm a lot closer to the end than the beginning, and you don't know when you're going to get opportunities again". "I had a real tough time believing I'm going to be able to go out and play well against the No. 1 ranked defense in the league in four days", Brady recalled.

"I think one thing that's gotten a little challenging as you get older is there's just different priorities and different commitments", Brady said. Tom Brady will be on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert on Monday night.
