You can hear someone tell you Tom Brady’s age (45!) and it doesn’t really affect you, because the guy still looks fit and healthy. To fully grasp the length of Brady’s tenure on this Earth, you must therefore realize that the man appeared in a video game for the PlayStation. As the original playstation.
Brady, born in 1977, was drafted by the New England Patriots in the sixth round of the 2000 NFL Draft – as the 199th pick – and spent his first season in the league as a fourth-string QB . He was so far down the NFL pecking order, in fact, that for his first appearance in mad—Crazy 01which came out on PS1 – he wasn’t even named, he was just listed on the Patriots depth chart as “QB #12”.
A year later, after serving as a backup, he took over for the injured Drew Bledsoe, led the Patriots to a championship and the rest is history. Note that his rise to stardom happened so quickly that he didn’t even appear in most versions of Crazy 02, the year it would be win the super bowl; in the PC, PS1, PS2 and N64 editions, the Patriots only had the three QBs above him in the depth chart from the previous season, meaning only the Xbox and GameCube versions – released months later , after the start of the 2001 season and Brady was the starting QB for the Patriots – had him in the game.Tom Brady’s
