INDIANAPOLIS (CBS) – Tom Brady has been the starting quarterback for the Patriots for more than a decade now, and he’s got more experience in big games than any of his contemporaries.
Still, he’s open to some advice on how to play.
The quarterback said his wife, Gisele Bundchen, offered some tips on how to beat the Giants.
“Throw the ball quickly,” he said of the supermodel’s suggestion. “She doesn’t like it when I get hit very often. My guys up front do a great job of protecting me.”
Watch Brady speak at media day:
When it comes to what advice Brady, a veteran of four Super Bowls already, will offer his teammates, the quarterback said it’s all about confidence.
“You try to go out there and be confident in yourself so you can inspire confidence in others,” Brady said. “I always tell young players, ‘How do you expect me to be confident in you when I look at you and see that you’re not confident in yourself?’ You’re always bringing that level of confidence so guys look at you and say, ‘I know he’s going to get it done, so this is how I’m going to prepare myself.’”
