Tom Brady is tied with former Pro Bowl defensive end Charles Haley for the most Super Bowl wins per Sports Illustrated. Brady has five Super Bowl rings, the most of any current player. If Brady can win another title, the Patriots quarterback would have the most Super Bowl wins of any player in NFL history.
Brady has played in eight Super Bowls going 5-3 so far in his career. Brady won his first Super Bowl in 2002 (for the 2001 season) and some of his teammates were kids when he was already playing for championships. ESPN’s Mike Reiss interviewed some of Brady’s teammates about their earliest memories of watching Brady play in the Super Bowl.
“We were down in Disney World and my dad took me to the hotel bar — I think it was Goofy’s hotel — to watch the Super Bowl against the Rams,” offensive lineman Ted Karras (who was 8 years old) told ESPN. “My dad let me sit at the bar with him, which I thought was so cool. It was the first time I remember thinking, ‘This is the Super Bowl. This is it.’”
Brady Has Played in More Super Bowls Than Any Other Player in NFL History

After the narrow loss to the Eagles, Brady posted a lengthy Instagram message about its potential impact on the team.
It has taken me a few days to reflect on our SB loss as well as the great season our team had. There are many emotions when you come up short of your goal. And they are all part of learning and growing in this journey of life. Learning turns everything into a postitive [sic]. And the number one feeling I have had the past 4 days is gratitude. Gratitude to my teammates for the incredible effort given all season regardless of the challenges we faced.
Gratitude toward my coaches for the effort and sacrifice they make to put us players in the best position to win.
Gratitude to the NEP organization for supporting us on our very challenging and difficult journey.
Gratitude to the Philadelphia Eagles team and organization for bringing out the best in us and being gracious winners (as well as congratulations on winning the championship)
Gratitude toward our fans who showed up every week to cheer us on and commit their time and energy and love and support to what our goals are.
And gratitude to my family and friends who continue to love and support my dreams.
Thank you all. I love you all.
