Brady's future, ...

Brady's future, ... 


Here are the facts New England Patriots fans need to take some time to think about with regards to Tom Brady. Brady has two years left on his five-year contract extension from 2010, and is due $43,600,000 dollars over the next two seasons. This is partly because he restructured his contact for 2012 to save the Pats some money. It’s always painful to talk about when the Pats will, or should, pull the plug on Brady, however, you have to start talking about it at some point... Read more

Re: Brady's future, ... 


I don't think Brady's retirement will be as painful to watch as Favrereerer or the rest. He's got a super-model wife, his castle in LA, mucho millions of dollars, and his eyes on a career in politics. He's also exceptionally well-grounded and focused. I think he'll miss the team and the game, but it'll be a very smooth transition for him to move on to his next career. With 15 years of being groomed on how to act in front of the media by BB and RK, he could run for governor of Cali in the next election and probably win.

The fans and the team ... that's where the pain would be. The team would be forced to get more balanced. And the fans would be forced to accept 10-6 seasons for a while.

The big clue will be if they use one of their top-3 draft picks on a QB this year. If they do, then that means Mallett is not the guy and Brady has 2 more seasons and then that's likely it. If they don't draft a QB, then my guess is they will work out the numbers with Brady and continue to bring Mallett along until "the time is right".

And I have to believe that "time" will be influenced by winning a SB. I think TB will want to retire a champion.

Its going to be hard for some people to come back to reality when TFB finally retires. They almost never miss the post season (And the most recent time their record was 11-5).

That kind of consistency is hard to do. Its nothing short of amazing what the Pats organization has done in the BB era.

It will suck when Brady leaves.I wish he was 4 years younger to this point.I feel though it would be bittersweet and dissapointing if TB doesnt get another ring.They have had numerous opportunities and just havent gotten over the top.Idk if the FO has doned enough.They mostly have rebuilt through draft picks and some of those picks have been failures.

I feel bad for the guy who replaces Brady. He will have to win a SB or he will be the scapegoat for every loss. He will be in a no win situation.

BIMH ~ Q for you, ok? Every "super star"  leaving the Patriots has run into storys like well, he wanted too much money or, he's a problem in the locker room or he'
s a problem off the field. I think you agree, rite? In those same conversations how often do we hear it's really "the system" thats has made the player.
You remember when Cassell came off the bench in 2008 and went 11-5. Sure his skill set had a lot to do with it but, so did the system.It is really time to search and sign Mr. QB2. BTW ~ There will be great interest in the job for the first time in 13 years. {look what the Colts did}

As much crap as we give BB for some of the things he does, the real drop-off will come when he decides to leave Foxboro.

It really is amazing how old Tom Brady is. Everybody talks about Peyton Manning being the granddaddy of the position, but Brady is only one year younger. Manning will be 37, and Brady will be 36 on opening day.  I still think that Brady is playing at an elite level, but from the games that I've seen, Manning is showing his age. He put up great numbers against a weak schedule, but his body his limitations that it did not in yesteryears.

Jay .. I agree with you all the way .. and it is just around the corner .. sad to say!

Do you think BB will hang it up when Brady does? .. An intriguing thing to ponder.
And as always .. Go Pats!

Since Kraft, BB & Brady have been in Foxboro, - they've been on a roll. NO team is going to win a SB every year, ... but how many can match their record over the same time frame???

They certainly have done alot without a team full of top name, top paid .. possible primadonnas.  I for one am proud to be a Patriot Fan .. have been one since 1967 when Babe Parilli threw the pigskin for the old Boston Patriots.  

We are in the limelight of a great dynasty.  We need to enjoy it while it lasts cause it may be gone .. hopefully later rather than earlier!!  eek
And as always .. Go Pats!
