The third Super Bowl loss apparently isn’t any easier to take than the first.
Brady is now 5-3 in his eight Super Bowl appearances.
“If you want to be world champs, you gotta play in this game,” he said, later adding, “You can’t win the game if you’re not in the game.”
Brady said he never felt like they got control of the game and — despite passing for more than 500 yards and setting the Super Bowl record for total yards (613) — wished they could have scored more points. The Patriots quarterback also gave the Eagles credit for their strip-sack on the Patriots second-to-last drive.
“They made a good play at the right time,” he said. “They made one good play at the right time.”
Brady said he expects to return this year, though he said he was still processing the loss.
“I wouldn’t see why I wouldn’t be back,” he said.
