This is my worst nightmare.
-Written by Alec Baicher
So I'm a few days late on this. Bare with me, I was a tad bit hung-over from my trip to Nashville (humble brag, I drink and travel, nbd.)
Anyway, on Monday, Bob Kraft met with reporters and told them he had a conversation with Brady this past week and Brady stated that he wanted to play for 6-7 more seasons. Brady exclaimed he wanted to enter George Blanda territory and play into his late 40s. Blanda, the Hall of Fame QB/placekicker, played until he was 48. Kraft also went on to say he would like coach Bill Belichick to coach into his 80s. Belichick, now 64, is showing no signs of slowing down either.
So here's what I have to say about this; Uhhhhh, fuck this? If this actually happens, I may have to stop watching football. I'm satisfied with the Jets going all in on rebuilding the next 2-3 years since I thought Brady would retire by then. But 6-7 more years?!?! I might as well just drop football until I'm 30 at this point.
It's crazy how Brady has not slowed down one bit and has been better at age 40 than he was at age 30. He's a real life Benjamin Button. The guy just doesn't get hit at all in the pocket and has had one major injury in his career. Its astonishing for a guy who plays between 18-20 games a year because it feels like the Pats are always in the AFC Championship game or Super Bowl. Brady has played in all 16 regular season games in 13 of his 17 years. The other 4 years: his rookie year where he played in one game, his second season he played in 15 after Bledsoe went down, 2008 when he tore his ACL in game 1, and this past season where he was suspended for the first 4 games.
Fuck this guy man, I respect him because he's so good, but I hate him because he's a psychopath who keeps playing football when all he should be doing is going home to bang his supermodel wife, play with his two kids and enjoying life. Instead, he's so sick in the head that he's going to go on a 6-7 more years on an "I hate Roger Goodell and the NFL and will make their lives a living hell" tour. Tom Brady, certified sick fuck.
P.S. As much as I hate the Patriots, I can only imagine how much Bill was trolling on Goodell this week at the annual coaches' meeting. Probably A+ trolling, if we are being honest with ourselves.
