New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady spoke to Michael Strahan on Monday's "Good Morning America" about his team's devastating loss at this year's Super Bowl held on February 4.

Leading up to the 2018 AFC Championship game on January 21, no one was really sure how badly Tom Brady had injured his thumb in practice, and whether it would affect his performance.

Everything from his thumb injury, to losing Gronkowski against Jacksonville, to their heartbreaking defeat by five points, Brady touches down on every obstacle that stood in their way for a sixth Super Bowl Ring.

"I'm looking down at my thumb as it's split open, and I'm thinking 'I really don't know what happened to my thumb, but I know it doesn't feel good and I'm having a real hard time believing I'm going to go out and play well against the #1 ranked defense in four days'".

Brady threw for 505 yards and and three touchdowns in the Super Bowl loss and seemed to be fully recovered three weeks after the injury.

Gross - but pretty badass.

He finished the regular season leading the nation in points (27.5) and assists (8.9) per game, a feat that has never been done. Oklahoma owns an 18-13 record behind the fifth-highest-scoring offense in the country, averaging 85.2 points per game.

Brady dialed up Gronk on his way home from Gillette Stadium. "A f-ing miracle", Brady said, showing off that potty mouth again.

Gronkowski: "I'm doing way better".

Said Brady: "When we met, I was 29, 30 years old, and I thought, 'Man, if I could get to 40, it would be unbelievable.' It would be a great career - 18 years in the National Football League, learned a lot, and it's been such a great love for me".

Two things come to mind. "It was hard work, a lot of work last offseason and this season, a little bit of time, but to me it turned into a great series".

"I've really enjoyed it and it's been a great experience for me to try something different". If the sight of blood makes you queasy, then you're going to want to leave this story now because things are about to get bloody. When you get out of your comfort zone, you stretch. "I think you can't make decisions necessarily just for yourself".

In the new Facebook Watch docu-series Tom vs. Time, Brady gives fans a look at his life both on and off the field and admitted that it isn't always easy to uphold his personal and professional commitments. I think one thing that has gotten a little challenging as you get older is there are different priorities and different commitments. "Time" is set to premiere at noon, and Brady will continue his media tour with an appearance on "The Late Show" with Stephen Colbert later tonight.
