New England Patriots star Tom Brady is one of the greatest quarterbacks in NFL history, but even he felt overmatched when facing off against the league during the lengthy Deflategate legal battle.

I realized I couldn’t win, Brady said during an interview with Oprah Winfrey (h/t the Boston Globe’s Nicole Yang). I just said, ‘You know what? I’m going to use this as an opportunity to have the month of September off for the first time in 21 years. I’m going to take advantage of this.’

Brady’s punishment ultimately had little effect on him and the Patriots as a whole. He set a league record in 2016 by throwing 28 touchdowns against just two interceptions, and New England captured its fifth Super Bowl title, wiping out a 25-point third-quarter deficit against the Atlanta Falcons in Super Bowl LI.

There are some things he can do better but he’s trying to get everything done and the two biggest things Jameer Nelson Jersey we haven’t tackled are health care and immigration and the reason why is because people aren’t voting for it, Damon said. People have jobs that we appointed in offices — vote, do your job, do Aaron Ripkowski Youth Jersey what’s right for America, and a lot of people would rather see President Trump fail than help him get the U.S.A. back on track.

Damon was asked what he wants to see in health care and immigration reform.

Health care is a total mess, Damon said. Everyone agrees on it but no one wants to do anything about it. As far as Immigration, I say you let people in, but the thing is, you have to have papers. I have papers. You have papers. If you’re going to be here, just be here legally, and come on over. America is the greatest place in the world and we’re not going to turn our backs on anyone, but would you just want people to walk into your country and not know where they’re going? That becomes an issue.
