Tom Brady Announces His Retirement After 22 Seasons! Thank You TB12 For All The Memories

Written by Jonathan Garner

After 22 seasons, 3 separate hall of fame careers all in one career. It is safe to say that Tom Brady has ended his legacy as without a doubt, THE G.O.A.T. Although he is 44 years old, and speculation about his retirement has been going on for quite some weeks now. It is still shocking, we have heard brady say multiple times that he wants to play until he is 45, maybe even 50. He also went on note with saying that he will stop playing once he “sucks” and it is safe to say that he is still far from “sucking”. He just completed debatably an MVP season, and almost led him team to back to back NFC Championships.

He ended his career with 624 touchdowns, 85,520 yards, and 7 super bowls to show for it. He is the greatest to ever do it, and it will be sad to see him go. No man has changed a sport as much as Brady did, he set the standard high for everyone that he played with. He was a great leader, a great coach, a great father, a great husband, a great teammate, the list goes on forever. That is why he is football’s GOAT. Let’s take a look at some of the craziest stats that you will ever see a quarterback complete:

Some things just don’t make sense. Did he sell his soul to the devil? Some like to say so.

For those that witnessed his last game played, he almost secured one of the greatest comebacks of all time. In the 3rd quarter the Buccaneers trailed 27-3 which is almost identical to the 28-3 deficit that Brady came back from in the Super bowl against the Falcons. No man was watching that game thinking that is was over, as long as Brady was on the field then a comeback could very easily happen. Sure as hell, he did it. He was able to notch a comeback with 30 seconds left in the 4th quarter, game tied 27-27. No other quarterback has the capability of doing what he does game in and game out. Unfortunately, the Buccaneers lost of a heartbreaker to Matthew Stafford and the Rams in those final 30 seconds; Ending Tom Brady’s career. If anyone was going to take him out like that, I am happy it was Stafford.

Although he is not playing football anymore, it is very hard to think that he will erase himself from the football world. I am sure we will be seeing a lot more of him in the next coming years. Maybe even see him in the booth next to Romo and Brees??
