  • Brady says there’s a simple reason more teams aren’t able to repeat: winning in the NFL is hard.

Tom Brady knows the Lombardi Trophy better than any other player in the history of the NFL.

So comfortable is Brady with the trophy, he can carelessly throw it off the back of a boat in celebration, never worrying about what might happen should he make a bad pass.

Brady has won the Super Bowl seven times in his career but has won back-to-back championships just once, and that was nearly two decades ago.

Speaking on his podcast “Let’s Go,” Brady had a simple explanation for why more teams didn’t wind up establishing Super Bowl dynasties with back-to-back titles.

“Well, the number one [reason] it’s so hard to repeat is that it’s hard to win one Super Bowl,” Brady said.

“There’s one of 32, and being second is the same as being 32nd. In the end, there’s one team that everyone’s going to remember from every season. So to win two of those back-to-back is extremely difficult.”

Brady’s explanation is satisfyingly simple. Imagine hitting a bet on a single number at the roulette table and then hitting again on the very same number the next spin — it can happen, just not all that likely. Not to mention that Aaron Donald and Khalil Mack are attempting to tackle you at this particular roulette table.

While he’s only gone back-to-back once, Brady’s postseason runs in his final years with the Patriots were nearly as impressive, winning three Super Bowls in five years and reaching a fourth. Had Brady not lost to the Philadelphia Eagles in Super Bowl LII, the Patriots would have been the only team in history to win three straight titles.

As things stand, only seven teams have ever won the Super Bowl back-to-back years.

This February, Brady and the Buccaneers will attempt to make it eight, and join the Packers, Dolphins, Steelers, 49ers, Cowboys, Broncos, and Brady’s Patriots in accomplishing the feat.
