Tom Brady is looking back at last Sunday's Super Bowl loss and told fans that while he was emotional about the loss, the biggest feeling he's experienced is gratitude.
The New England Patriots quarterback took to Instagram to reflect on Sunday's game and explain why he feels like it was an important loss to go through.
"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. And the number one feeling I have had the past 4 days is gratitude," Tom begins.
"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," he added.
Tom then saved his final "thank you" for his family and friends.
"And gratitude to my family and friends who continue to love and support my dreams.Thank you all. I love you all," he concluded the post.
Tom's wife, Gisele was in the stands with their kids cheering her husband on during the Sunday matchup against the Philadelphia Eagles. Gisele was initially lauded for a classy act following the game, where she congratulated any of the Eagles players she saw.
But she came under fire earlier this week over the way she reportedly explained Tom's loss at the Super Bowl to their young children.
