"Speaking of which I do hope he has the sense to retire if the Pats don't want him. The saddest things I've ever seen in sports is star athletes who hung on too long. Michael Jordan missing a dunk by a good six inches wearing a Wizards uniform. Gordie Howe, his hair full gray, getting outskated by referees while playing for the Whalers. His team faced 5-4 mismatches every shift he played because he just couldn't get to the zone as fast. Johnny Unitas, a shell of his former self with the Chargers. Dan Marino on two bad knees getting blown out by the Jaguars. Don't become a parody of who you once were Tom. Walk out with your head held high. "
The saddest thing I've seenm in sports is when athletes have to read/listen to asanine 'advice' like this. Brady should play as long as he wants to and as long as an employer wants to pay. He owes the Pats' ****. If they throw him in the trash he owes them less than ****. If you think Brady isn't deserving of a starting QB job next season you don't know football. PERIOD.
