If you’re inducting the greatest quarterback of all-time into your team’s Hall of Fame, there’s only one to do it: BIG!

New England inducted franchise legend Tom Brady into the Patriots Hall of Fame in an epic two-and-a-half-hour event on Wednesday. Following a 20-year career with the Patriots, during which he led the team to six Super Bowl championships, Brady became the 35th player inducted into the team’s Hall of Fame grandiose ceremony in front of a sold-out Gillette Stadium.

In September, Patriots chairman and CEO Robert Kraft announced that he was waiving the four-year grace period to induct Brady immediately into the Hall of Fame at Patriot Place. Since then, the organization has been planning an event worthy of honoring the GOAT.

Jay-Z performed live for the 60,000 strong as Brady walked out of the south end zone tunnel. For those unfamiliar, Brady’s pre-game ritual was to run down the left sideline from the north end zone toward the six championship banners. When Brady reached the far end zone, he’d roared, “Let’s go” while punching the air. The song became synonymous with Brady’s greatness, producing an outstanding moment to kick things off.

Brady capped off the night wearing his red jacket as he addressed the crowd. Brady took time to thank fans, coaches, and teammates. However, the best moment of his speech came when he addressed Coach Belichick. In an emphatic statement, Brady said: “It wasn’t me, it wasn’t you, it was us.” Brady added there wasn’t another coach he’d rather play for than Belichick. Every Patriots fan has to feel great about Brady and Belichick being back together again.

Brady ended his speech by saying the following words: “I am Tom Brady and I’m a Patriot.”
