New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady has had a one of a kind career which has cemented his place as the best quarterback of all time. The amount of achievements he has throughout his career is endless and well deserved when you’re as good as Brady.
Before entering into the NFL he was a 6th round pick but ever since he has defied all odds by overcoming all obstacles thrown at him. Another season has passed and it was another that he has dominated but will that be the last we see of him?
Brady Career Over?
Tom Brady recently just finished off his 19th season in the NFL at the age of 41. By the start of the next season he would have already turned 42 but that means nothing for a man that seems to be immortal and is a clear indication that age is just a number if you work hard. He provided us with confirmation that he has no intention of retiring; and that he will play next season. He also hopes to be playing for a few more seasons. Last year he earned his third career MVP but at his age there would obviously be questions about his future.
Always An Asset
Brady had this to say about his future, “I absolutely believe I will. I know I’ve talked about it for a long time; I have goals to not only play next year, but beyond that,” Brady told Jim Gray on Monday night during his weekly interview on Westwood One. “I’m going to try to do it as best I possibly can. I’m going to give it everything I have; like I always have.” Despite his age the Patriots surely shouldn’t be looking to replace Brady because he would still be an asset no matter his age.
Where does one even start with the quarterback’s achievements, he has so many but how about the fact that he holds the record for the most wins as a starts because of his extensive postseason success. He now holds the record for the most regular season wins which he is a record broken in 2017 when he achieved his 187th career victory. Brady also has the record for most passing yards 81,693, most passing touchdowns 590 (Postseason included), most touchdowns thrown to different receivers 71.
Super Bowl Wins
He even has the most division titles with 16, he has won 4 Super Bowl MVP awards along with 6 Super Bowl wins. The list is too long to name all and these are of course a few of many. He has many that he could still break and those that are within his reach are the records for most passing touchdowns, Pro Bowls, Game-winning drives, fourth-quarter comebacks and games started.
Destined For Greatness
When a player’s achievements are too long to list that should emphasise his greatness and Tom Brady really is great. He is already a legend of the game even though he still continues to play. With all the odds against him he beat them all and has nothing left to prove. There should be no doubt in anyone’s mind that he is the greatest NFL quarterback of all time.
