It seems like the entire NFL, especially the AFC East, is waiting for Tom Brady to retire in order to have any shot at winning a Super Bowl. This isn’ a good sign.
The New England Patriots quarterback has seemingly defied father time, playing at an MVP level into his 40s in a league with 6’6″ 300lb. men fast enough to chase down running backs trying to flatten him on every play. Beyond all the diet restrictions Brady follows and voodoo-like training and stretching regimens, we now have numbers to prove Brady is not only not aging, but actually getting better.
