2021 NFL Season
- When: Sep. 9, 2021 – Jan. 9, 2022
Reasons Brady will retire if he wins an eighth Super Bowl ring
- Reason #1 – Brady has nothing left to prove
One victory without Bill Belichick and Josh McDaniel is impressive. Another Super Bowl win without Bill and Josh will prove Brady is the reason those guys got their rings.
- Reason #2 – Terrific Tom will be bored
Brady requires constant competition. One of the things he enjoyed last season was playing against the Saints’ Drew Brees three times. Brees retired. There’s a good chance Aaron Rodgers retires after this season. Patrick Mahomes and Josh Allen are in the AFC. So if Tom brings Tampa another ring, he could be bored playing in a conference where, no doubt, he’s the best quarterback.
- Reason #3 – Brady wants to win the U.S. Open
The PGA Tournament is open to anyone who qualifies. A few years back, Dallas Cowboys’ quarterback Tony Romo tried to qualify.
Brady and Phil Mickelson didn’t beat Aaron Rodgers and Bryson DeChambeau in The Match. But Brady did make some incredible shots, like a 390-yard drive, and, overall, he played well.
We all know that if Brady puts his mind to it, he can pretty much do anything. So, who knows? Maybe, he wants to take the U.S. Open by showing he’s Jordan with a better golf game.
Reasons Brady won’t retire if he wins an eighth Super Bowl ring
- Reason #1 – Age versus feeling age
Tom Brady is 43-years-old. But he doesn’t feel like he’s 43-years-old. There’s age and then there’s feeling age.
On paper, Terrific Tom is 43. His feeling age is closer to 34, maybe, even 30. So if he feels better than guys close to half his age, why not continue to play?
- Reason #2 – Injury bounce back time
Brady eats 80% vegetables and never touches a French fry. He doesn’t eat any potatoes, probably because of the mass amount of lectins in spuds.
All of those vegetables lower inflammation in his body, which means if he ever gets injured, he can bounce back quicker than quarterbacks in their 20s.
- Reason #3 – He’s still having fun and has nothing else do
Tom loves to go to work. His wife also loves to work. So what would happen if he ended up going home? It’s not like Giselle would be there to hang out with him and watch Friday Night Lights.
As long as Brady is having fun, he’ll continue to play. As long as his wife has her career, or if they haven’t decided to retire together, Brady will most likely continue to play.
Final Prediction: Will Tom Brady retire if he wins an eighth Super Bowl ring?
Unless Terrific Tom suffers a serious injury, and the non-potato diet implies he doesn’t, he’ll keep playing until he and Giselle decide to do something else. That could happen after this season, but let’s put things in perspective.
For players, the season lasts from around mid-August to the second week of February if you make it to the Super Bowl. That’s six months.
Brady mustn’t spend the other six months doing anything that he normally wouldn’t do, which means Tom is always staying in shape and will do so even if he retires.
So there’s really no reason for Tom to quit his part-time job, playing in the NFL, even after he wins an eighth ring.
