He told ESPN The Magazine he was ready to lead his New England Patriots to another Super Bowl title despite losing receiver Wes Welker to free agency and being left with a questionable receiving corps. "I feel like I'm 25," he said. "Could we win the Super Bowl every year? Of course — and that's the goal. But the reality is based on injuries and different margins for error. In certain games you have to be perfect, and if you're less than perfect, you're going to get beat." That was the case in the 2007 and 2011 Super Bowls. Most assumed Brady would have his fourth win by now. "I've learned that it's hard to close it out," he admitted. "In 2001, it was miraculous for us to win. In 2007, it was miraculous for the Giants to win. But no one remembers that. They remember who got Brady, who will turn 36 years old this summer, will be the trophy." Brady said he realized gunning for his fourth Super Bowl victory in 2013. photo courtesy new england patriots how important it was
