Yeah, in an odd way I will miss it but that is the fan in me. He along with Peyton and Montana are just dude's that dominate. They could be down by 21 and come back like it is nothing. 

Believe me, I won’t miss him when he retires. So sick of watching him get special treatment and rarely take a hit. He was crying today because he got a bloody lip. Probably was the most physical damage his body received all year.

He had a great year why quit?


I feel like that team will be drastically different. Probably No Gronk, Godwin, along with aging players on the DL.I wouldn’t be surprised if he retires already accomplished his goal giving that team a ring.

He probably doesn’t want to wait to go out like Peyton or Big Ben with a noodle arm or going out limping. He’s the GOAT, no doubt. Absolutely nothing to prove. I’d not be surprised if he or Peyton have a minority ownership of some team at some point.

 

I was reading that Staubach used his QB fame to get into real estate and is probably the most successful businessman amongst retired QBs. That’s probably the mindset for all these success driven QBs, eventually. They’d still want to be visible and successful.

Seems like he wants to play forever and as of right now he certainly still has the talent.  Just depends on whether he wants to play.  I expect to see him back.

 

He will have to play the Rams again next year as a division winner, the entire NFC West and a ton of contenders. This year, he got away with the NFC East and AFC East. Next year, it will be the NFC West and AFC North, brutal physical teams. 

 

Look at this:

Might be time for family now. :dunno:

 

 

He has a mind set where he hates losing and loves to compete. I am a person like that so I would get why he would play next year but even if I was in his shoes I would hang it up. 7 SB's and 3 MVP's + a pretty wife and kids, tons of money too. I would get in my recliner and watch and laugh at 44.

I don’t think he's the "sit in recliner" type.

 

But I do think he's seeing the reality of  future :lombardi:'s slipping away so why keep on?

If he does retire, the Bucs may be a good trade partner to try and get some upgrades at receiver and edge rush on our end

 

They were built to win now as soon as TB12 got there and I would imagine they would be looking at rebuilding if he did retire.

I think it is 50/50.  Brady has always said he wants to play until age 45.  The Bucs roster is really good and has cap room to make another legit run.  If Rodgers leaves GB which seems likely, he will have no contender in the NFC other than the Rams.  That being said, would not be surprised to see him retire too.  He played  a great game yesterday with that comeback that fell just short.

The only caveats to that is if Russell Wilson goes to the Saints and Rodgers goes to another NFC team in the NFC East. Seahawks might want to rebuild too.

 

Expecting so many guys to play on 1 year deals, like Godwin, Gronk, Suh etc. will eventually be hard to sustain, IMO. Godwin is still looking for his 1st post rookie contract pay day. Once he won the SB with Tampa (winning with a 2nd team, winning as a wild card on the road, 1st one to win SB at home stadium), he checked all those off. All time passing yards and TDs, also off the check list. Pretty much nothing to prove for the GOAT except to figure out if he wants to go get hit more as a QB. :)

Yup.  I still miss Favre and although i hated him, Marino.

The Saints are in terrible cap position. They can't afford Wilson.  The Packers are not in good cap shape either.  Also the entire NFC South is rebuilding.  

 

That all being said, I am not sure it is just about those things for Brady.  The Bucs have cap to sign Godwin and also pay a top CB too.  The rest of the team was locked up last year so they are in prime position to contend again. Licht is a great GM IMO.

It wouldn't surprise me to be wrong, but I think Brady plays one more year. If Tampa had advanced and somehow won another SB, I think it would've been different. With 5,300+ yards and 43 TDs, he literally had one of his best seasons statistically at age 44, so clearly he can still play. In my opinion he hasn't had anything to prove since the Atlanta Super Bowl, when he won his 5th ring after being down 28-3. But everyone wants to go out on top, and my guess is that he'll take one more shot at it.

That's what I'm thinking now as well. Physically he seems fine to play another year.

Just to add, the longer he plays, the better it will be for his TB12 thing, which seems like it'll be his main distraction post-retirement. I honestly think that part of it matters to him since his workout/nutritional/health regimen in general is so much of a lifestyle thing.

Good point. Not to mention it actually works. I wish I had one ounce of his level of commitment towards a healthier lifestyle. Alas, I'm mentally weak when it comes to food and drink.

A few years ago someone got me into a pliability regimen. I'll be 50 this year and I can say it really helped to go from traditional workouts to more work with resistance bands, yoga, etc. 

 

You can keep the avocado ice cream though. I'll stick with Ben and Jerry's. :lol:

His demeanor after the game yesterday was different, I thought.  :dunno: 

 

I dont know why, but I think he may be ready to call it a career.

 

I guess I won't be surprised either way.

I agree.  I think he is retiring.  He most likely went into this season knowing it was his last which is probably why he played at such an incredible level.

Well, he played at a far higher level than Peyton or Big Ben did before they retired, easily. Big Ben held on a tad too long. Peyton squeezed what he could but his body wasn't co-operating anymore. Gary Kubiak said "Peyton waved off a pass before SB half time content to go into half time without challenging the scoreboard, I have not seen him do that many times...", and he limped into the sunset carried by his D. None of that stuff w.r.t Brady. Physically far more intact than those 2 above, and to an extent better than Brees too last year who could not make all the throws he wanted down the field. Best physical shape of all the recently retired QBs I know at the time of their retirement.

    • im ready for this HC ordeal to be over tbh
    • continued...   2023 NFL Draft   Round 1– LCB Devon Witherspoon – makings of Sauce Gardner and Jalen Ramsey taken with the 4th and 5th picks, respectively in their draft classes in Round 1   Round 2 – QB Hendon Hooker – Hooker is one of my top 3 QBs in this class and the steal of the draft imho   Round 3 via WSH – WR Rashee Rice 4.36 40-yd, 74% blocking solid all around WR not a burner outside but very dangerous inside   Round 4 – TE Brevyn Spann-Ford (Minnesota) – sticking with players who can run-block the Colts add another weapon with both Rice and Spann-Ford.  Brevyn is the best run-blocking TE in the class.  He earned an 82.8 run-blocking. grade which was ranked 3rd in FBS this season.   Round 5 – RCB Riley Moss (Iowa) - last season has a zone defense coverage grade of 81.5.  Gilmore’s future replacement at RCB.   Round 6 – QB Jaren Hall (BYU) – like Hooker had a very productive college career   Round 7– SS Kaevon Merriweather (Iowa) - 88.1 PFF grade. Versus Ohio State he had a 79 PFF grade.  Good measurements all around except hand and a 4.50s 40-time.   Offensive outlook ’23 Roster: QB:  Hooker, Ehlinger, Hall RB: Taylor, Moss, Jackson WR: Pittman Jr, Pierce, Campbell, Dulin, Rice, Strachan, Smith TE: Woods, Granson, Ogletree, Spann-Ford LT: Raimann, Edoga, Murray LG: Nelson, Haynes OC: Kelly, French, Pinter RG: Davis, Fries, Haynes RT: Smith, Edoga   Defense outlook ’23 Roster: Edge:  Paye, Lewis, Kareem IDL: Buckner, Williams, Agim IDL:  Stewart, Hill, Johnson Edge: Odeyingbo, Winovich, Berry   WLB: Okereke, Stuard MLB: Leonard, Speed, Rhyne SLB:  Franklin, Domann   CB: Witherspoon, Rodgers, Flowers SS: Cross, Merriweather, Denbow FS: Bates III, Thomas II, Watts, Dabo CB: Gilmore, Moss, Brown
    • Continuing in the direction of @John Hammonds and the rest of us forum arm-chair GMs   Coaching Staff   HC –Shane Steichen – no stranger to young rookie QBs and the Colts will need that help along with the proven productions as an OC Steichen has had over the years.  Adding Super Bowl Champion to his resume is soon coming.   OC – Pete Carmichael (Saints) – Carmichael remains very close to Drew Brees and with Brees ties to his alma mater in West Lafayette just makes sense to renew his growth along with Steichen at the helm.     DC – Gus Bradley – continue to build on our defense and not keep changing it every year or two   Restructure OC Ryan Kelly’s base 2023 (9.125m) and 2024 (11.375m) to 4.75m and 5.75m, respectively   2023 Roster Cuts: QB Matt Ryan QB Nick Foles TE Mo Alie-Cox DB Kenny Moore FS Julian Blackmon   FA Additions: RG Nate Davis (Titans) 44m contract 16m G, 9.5m SB, 18m/4-year plus 500k game bonuses OG Phil Haynes (Seahawks) 9m SB, 5m G, 9.5m base/3-year FS Jessie Bates III (Cincy) – family still in Ft Wayne wishes to stay close to home, 6m SB, 18m G, 26m/4-year base DT Trysten Hill (Cardinals) 3m SB, 2m G, 1.5m/2-year base Edge Chase Winovich (Browns) 3m SB, 2m G, 1.75m/2-year base OT Chuma Edoga (Falcons) 3m SB, 1m G, 4.5m/2-year base   Own FA Resigned: DB Armani Watts 1-year 1.35m K Chase McLaughlin 1-year 2.1m P Matt Haack 1-year 1.2m Edge Khalid Kareem 1-year 950k CB Tony Brown 1-year 1.25m WR Ashton Dulin 1-year 2.5m Edge Tyquan Lewis 1-year 2.5m LB E.J. Speed  4m/2-year base, 2m G WR Parris Campbell 9m SB, 9m G, base 24m/3-year base LB Bobby Okereke 9m SB, 9m G, base, 22m/3-year base       Rumors have it that the Panthers intend to jump ahead of the Colts and trade with Arizona.  Trading away RB Christian McCaffrey gave them additional draft capital.  The hiring of Reich just adds insult to injury, and he now has a change to stick it to the man who cut ties with him mid-year and take the QB the Colts coveted the most...or was it just draft smoke screen?  Maybe the real reason why the Colts had representation at the Kentucky-Tennessee game to watch both quarterbacks in action.  Hooker and the Vols dominated the Wildcats that day and left a very strong impression with the Colts brass.  Hooker is an older quarterback prospect but has excelled facing tough SEC competition showcasing his resume the past two seasons.  McKee from Stanford might have lightning-quick processing but has a bad history of throwing interceptions and hasn’t improved his reads.  We already had too many recent QBs throw too many INTs and its never a good formula for NFL success.   Denver just hired Payton as their HC and now the Saints have P29.  Its possible they take McKee but more likely they take Edge Will McDonald IV (Iowa St) to replace Marcus Davenport. Knowing we still don't have a QB on our roster besides Ehlinger expect the Saints to move ahead of the Colts in Round 2 to draft McKee.    
    • Callahan is Peyton's guy more than Jeff Saturday is Peyton's guy?  Peyton would get involved and recommend Callahan over Jeff?
    • Seems like they are not getting publicity but here are some measurements: https://www.the33rdteam.com/category/nfl-draft/2023-senior-bowl-weigh-in-measurement-results-for-nfl-prospects/
