Despite a bout of illness this weekend, Tom Brady manages to lead one of the NFL's most fearsome teams—maybe because he knows what to avoid. The New England Patriots quarterback opened up about his fears when taking questions from California firefighters during an interview earlier this week, 247 Sports reports. Asked which defensive player he has feared most over 18 NFL years, Brady didn't hold back: "There's been a lot of them. You know what the problem with those D-linemen is? They’re all faster than me, because I'm pretty damn slow."
"But the one guy that I wouldn’t want chasing me down would probably be Ray Lewis, because he played with a vengeance," he said, per NESN. "When he got to me, he wanted to make sure he knew that he got to me, and he usually cleaned my clock pretty good. So he’s the one who would probably be in my nightmares." With Lewis now in his sixth year of retirement, we hope Brady is sleeping well. (See why Brady's Met gala getup turned heads.)
