PATRIOTS QUARTERBACK TOM BRADY SAYS THERE MUST BE SOMETHING GREATER THAN THREE SUPER BOWL RINGS --
"60 MINUTES" SUNDAY
Many players spend an entire career wondering what could be better than winning a Super Bowl. But Tom Brady, the New England Patriots quarterback who has already won three of them before turning 30, is convinced there must be something better than reaching the pinnacle of his sport three times. Brady discusses this and other aspects of his career in an interview with Steve Kroft to be broadcast on 60 MINUTES, Sunday, Nov. 6 (7:00-8:00 PM, ET/PM) on the CBS Television Network.
"Why do I have three Super Bowl rings and still think there is something greater out there for me?" he asks Kroft. "A lot of people would say, 'This is what it is. I reached my goal, my dream�' Me, I think, God, it's got to be more than this. I mean, this isn't� what it's all cracked up to be," Brady says.
"I wish I knew the answer," says Brady, who also wishes he could have a little more privacy than his superstar status allows for. "Well the problem is you can't have one without the other. You can't have football fame and not the other stuff," he says. "So in a lot of ways, I've created this myself," says Brady.
He seems to find at least part of the answer to his conundrum when asked by Kroft where he would be if he could do anything and be anywhere. As tough a competitor as he is, there's no contest between football and family. "Probably in Scotland playing golf with my mom and dad," says Brady. "I'd probably take my mom and dad [over leading the Patriots]. They're some of the happiest times of my life," he tells Kroft.
The rest of the answer to his soul-searching question may be in this reply to Kroft's question about which of his three Super Bowl rings is his favorite. "The next one is the best," says Brady.
