With Manning gone how many more years does Brady have left?

Tom Brady has been a big time quarterback in the National Football League for a very long time. Ever since Brady replaced Drew Bledsoe in 2001, Brady has done nothing but overachieve in this league. 11 Pro Bowls and 4 Super Bowls later you have to wonder how much gas Brady has left in the tank? Now with Bradyā€™s suspension of 4 games from the Defelategate fiasco, you have to wonder at what point will Brady decide to walk away from it all? Itā€™s clear Brady has very left to prove at the professional ranks. This is a guy who will without a doubt be in the Pro Football Hall of Fame someday. He also helped transition modern day football into a passing league by throwing for 428 career touchdowns which includes 50 touchdown passes in 2007. When you have a player playing at that high of a level, he teaches the other players around him how to get it done because he gives you a template of how to achieve that success. Brady and Manning certainly pushed the envelope forward for the league and itā€™s hard to understand why commissioner Goodell would want to take down a guy who helped build the league into what we know and love today. That unfair work environment has to upset Brady and it really can go two ways. Brady will either elevate himself and continue to fight the uphill battle against the league and all the people who turned against him, which is very likely. Or maybe Tom Brady will be content with his accomplishments and walk away from the game at the end of the season. Brady has stated that he would like to play for several more years but the grind of showing up to every practice, and traveling to every game starts to weigh on you sooner or later. Not to mention if Brady left the game after this season he still would have his health intact, which seems to be a key priority for most players these days. Hopefully Brady will continue to play for a long time but donā€™t be surprised if he decides he has also had his ā€œfillā€ of pro football. He has a family to look after now and at some point he is going to make his personal life the first option. Itā€™s been a thrill to watch him play and football fans should be grateful they got to watch the best to ever do it.

  1. First off I want to say superb blog! I had a quick question which I’d like to ask if you do not
    mind. I was interested to know how you center yourself and clear your
    head before writing. I have had trouble clearing my thoughts in getting
    my ideas out there. I truly do take pleasure in writing however it just
    seems like the first 10 to 15 minutes tend to be
    lost just trying to figure out how to begin. Any recommendations
    or hints? Many thanks!

  2. I’m curious to find out what blog system you have been using?
    I’m experiencing some small security issues with
    my latest website and I’d like to find something more risk-free.
    Do you have any suggestions?

  3. It is appropriate time to make some plans for the future and it is time to
    be happy. I’ve read this post and if I could I want to suggest you

  4. Hi, just wanted to mention, I liked this article.

    It was helpful. Keep on posting! Woah! I’m really digging the template/theme of this blog.
    It’s simple, yet effective. A lot of times it’s challenging to get that
    “perfect balance” between user friendliness and visual appearance.

    I must say that you’ve done a great job with this. Also, the blog loads extremely fast for me on Firefox.
    Exceptional Blog! I couldnā€™t resist commenting.
