Which coincided with the start of 2001's season Professional4 months ago - Fashion & Lifestyle - Barbosa - 32 views
Maybe due to his lack of time on the field to this point, or perhaps due to the darts-on-a-dartboard nature of the virtually unknown players in Madden, Brady's overall rating actually went down six points in Madden NFL 02, which coincided with the start of 2001's season.
It wouldn't be long before Brady made his debut, however, when he was called to replace injured Drew Bledsoe after the Jets' Mo Lewis clobbered the QB who was the starter and sent Brady to the bench for the third week of the season. The remainder is history. At the point that Bledsoe was fit enough to go back to work to work, he'd already lost his job to young and aspiring Tom Brady.
Brady went on to lead the team to the record of an 11-5 (11-3 as the starting quarterback) and, after two wild playoff matches against the Raiders and Steelers -- lead the Patriots team to their first Super Bowl victory. If you know this story then you'll know that this wouldn't be its last.
After beating the infamously dubbed "Greatest Show On Turf" St. Louis Rams, Brady came into 2002 with the title of defending champion and the week 1 starter. In Brady's 22-year career and 22 seasons, he started for 20 seasons (we'll get to his doomed 2008 season later) and also made rounds 19 times out of the 20 seasons that he played in.
2002 was the sole one in which Brady was absent from the first game of January, being 9-7 and losing in a three-way tiebreaker for divisional play in the year 2002 that sent the Jets to the postseason.
