HOUSTON — Watching Tom Brady late Sunday night, the fifth time I’ve been there to watch him pull off his magic to win a Super Bowl, I came back to a quote that Arizona Cardinals corner Patrick Peterson gave me two weeks ago at the Pro Bowl.
Peterson’s face lit up as he talked up Brady, almost in a bow-down-to-greatness feel as he chatted about the quarterback’s career.
“He has that killer instinct,” Peterson said. “There’s only a couple of people in this world that have that ‘it’ factor. Michael Jordan, Tiger [Woods], Brady and Kobe [Bryant]. And now LeBron James. Seeing those guys have that it, that killer instinct.
“That’s what makes [Brady] so great.”
