Tom Brady is still plotting his revenge against the Giants originally appeared on NBC Sports Boston

Tom Brady has succeeded at nearly every turn during his 21-year NFL career. But if he has a white whale, it's the New York Giants.

Brady famously lost to Eli Manning and the Giants in two Super Bowls during his New England tenure -- a 17-14 defeat in Super Bowl XLII that ended the Patriots' perfect season and a 21-17 loss in Super Bowl XLVI against a New York team that went 9-7 that season.

If you're wondering if those losses still bug Brady after winning his seventh Super Bowl title as a member of the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, we'll direct your attention to his recent appearance on the Complex Sports Podcast.

"I've got a question for you. How could you hate me when you’re a Giants fan?" Brady said on the podcast. "You should love me! That was the only team I never beat, was the freakin’ Giants.

"It’s all good. I’ve got to figure out how to beat the Giants someday. Maybe we gotta have some type of rematch now that I’m in Tampa in a championship game."

Brady is a remarkable 7-3 in 10 Super Bowl appearances, but those two losses to the Giants still haunt him more than a decade later. That's no surprise, as the 43-year-old recently admitted he'd trade in two of his Super Bowl rings for a perfect season in 2007.

Brady has had no trouble in the regular season against New York, boasting a 5-1 record that includes the Bucs' 25-23 win over the Giants last season.

TB12 clearly wants playoff revenge against the G-Men, though, and he may have to wait a while: The Giants haven't won a playoff game since that Super Bowl XLVI victory in 2011.
