Is this it for Tom Brady?

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. 

I agree. He is going out playing at an MVP level.  It has been incredible what he has done in his 40s.

Absolute Fact.

No question about it!


He's smart too. Not that the others aren't. 


I just mean I think he sees the writing on the wall.  I think he sees the future of the NFL and the young guns taking over.  I think he's okay to move on.


Obviously, this is just my opinion.

    • https://www.espn.com/nfl/story/_/page/NFLpowerranking120523/nfl-week-14-power-rankings-poll-2023-plus-coaches-players-surprise ESPN Power Rankings:   16. Indianapolis Colts (7-5) Week 13 ranking: 18   Pleasant surprise: RG Will Fries   It was surprising when the Colts did little to upgrade their offensive line starters after a rough season in 2022. But the ascent of Fries, a 2021 seventh-round selection, has helped validate that decision. According to ESPN data, only one Colts lineman -- Pro Bowl center Ryan Kelly -- has given up fewer than the three sacks Fries has allowed. Fries has also been durable. He and guard Quenton Nelson are the only members of the unit to start every game. -- Stephen Holder
    • I've used it to describe talent.   #1WR is a label for the WR who, above all else, can threaten the defense with over the top speed.  If he gets beyond the defense, nobody will catch him.  Yes, a lot of times any receiver can score when they get behind the defense, but sometimes a series of conditions makes that possible.    Start with speed routes.  Then the guy needs route running to be able to get separation on more possession types of routes, because he's also used to sit down and move the chains.   And having great hands is a given.  No point to having the first two if he drops the ball.   Lines up anywhere, including slot.  Gets separation from his speed or agility.  He's probably not the WR that the QB will throw a back shoulder throw to, or expect to win a lot of contested catches.  Those are the guys who get thrown to despite being still reasonably covered.  That's the #2 WR, IMO.   A defense should have to double cover a WR #1 almost as a matter of routine game planning.     Probably only about a dozen teams have a true #1 in any given season.  But those are the ones typically in playoff contention.   Don't expand the definition just because there are 32 teams with 70 to 90 WRs getting various levels of production.
    • What?   No…   Its an included ingredient within the supplements, not being added by some nefarious individual walking around trying to sabotage us.    If there was some shady individual walking around slipping stuff to guys like some date rapist why would they pick AQM of all people?
