  • Tom Brady Refused To Step Backwards On A Kneel Down To Keep His 1,000 Yard Rushing Milestone

According to ESPN Stats & Information, the 41-year-old entered play Sunday having lost 160 rushing yards to kneel downs since 2006, the year plays began being classified as "kneels".

Brady followed up on Monday with a video announcing that he was retiring because he had finally reached the 1,000-yard plateau.

"I felt like it was a situation where the guy was going down to fake an injury to try to provide time for them to challenge the play and it frustrated me", said Thielen.

"Obviously, I'm not a scrambler".

"I don't want to make too much of a four- or five-yard gain". Running for it, made a good third down on that one, and I just give a lot of credit to the offensive line. "That wasn't really a difference in the game", he said.


Bill Belichick couldn't wait to heap effusive praise on Brady for the hard-earned benchmark. He joked by saying this is what he wanted to do for a long time and now he can ride off into the sunset and retire.

Superstar New England quarterback Tom Brady, the 1,000-yard rushing mark finally achieved, added to his passing plaudits as well on Sunday with a record-equalling 579th career touchdown pass.

As Brady got into his auto, he shut the trolling down and said there's still work to do.

It was Brady's 508th regular-season touchdown pass - tied for third on the career list with Brett Favre behind Manning's 539.
