Why Tom Brady Can’t Play As Patriots In ‘Madden’ (And Which Teams He Uses)


It’s hard to imagine Tom Brady playing for anyone other than the New England Patriots, but it has to happen.

In “Madden,” that is.

The Patriots quarterback will grace the cover of “Madden NFL 18,” so there was plenty of news about Brady after the announcement Friday. But while many NFL fans outside of New England were busy hoping Brady will become the next victim of the so-called “Madden Curse,” the 39-year-old revealed an interesting tidbit about his experience with the video game.

Brady told ESPN he doesn’t play as much “Madden” as he did when he was younger, but he added that “my son Jack loves beating up on me.” The problem, however, is that 9-year-old Jack also loves to play as the Patriots, so where does that leave Brady?

“I don’t like doing it,” Brady said of playing as a different team. “It does feel weird. I feel like I’m going up against my own guys that I love. Julian (Edelman) catches a pass, and I’ve got to tackle him. I’ve been Green Bay because I like that (Packers) offense. And I’ve been Seattle because I love being that (Seahawks) defense.”

Luckily for Patriots fans, the Packers and Seahawks both have franchise quarterbacks, so Brady’s not likely to jump ship for them in real life any time soon.
