Peter King: You’re unusually friendly with Peyton Manning. Will you still be friends when you’re 70?
Brady: Yeah, I hope so. We’re pretty good friends. I like that. It’s important to me. Peyton has two brothers he’s really close to; I don’t have a brother. We’re competitors on the field but there’s no reason we can’t be friends off it. There’s not many people who understand what our jobs are really like, on and off the field. Over the years, I’ve take my cues on how to act as a player and leader from lots of guys around the league. Peyton’s one of those. He always knows how to act, what to say, how to represent the game the right way. That’s how I want to be. (x)

"The game: they say a person either has what it takes to play, or they don’t. My mother was one of the greats. Me on the other hand… I’m kind of screwed. I can’t think of a single reason why I should be a surgeon… but I can think of a thousand reasons why I should quit. They make it hard on purpose. There are lives in our hands. There comes a moment when it’s more than just a game and you either take that step forward or turn around and walk away. I could quit but here’s the thing… I love the playing field."
literally every problem in my life can be solved with money
This young man has done a lot of things wrong. I’ve seen him do a dozen things wrong, but let me tell you something right now. He is not a bad young man, and he’s certainly not a criminal. He dated my daughter for years and we took him in like family, so he’s like family to me. And I can tell you this kid right here has got more heart than almost any person I know.
