Greatest athlete from the big 4 sports over the age of 40
there have been a fair amount of players who have been able to put in some great seasons after turning 40. after this season is there really anyone who has been better than Tom Brady?
In Baseball Nolan Ryan, Randy Johnson, Barry Bonds, Carlton Fisk Satchell Paige, Roger Clemens and others have done very well after 40. I think Clemens 05 season was the best, although Ryans 87 and Units 04 were also fantastic.
Basketball: Jordan, Kareem, Malone, Stockton were all very good, but not on MVP caliber level.
NHL:Gordie, Selane and Jagr were great, but i must admit, hockey is my least strong sport. there are probably more.
NFL: I think the strongest over 40 were Favre, Rice, Moon, Testeverte and Brady.
I dont think anyone has dominated at this age like tom though. he has started 4 16 game seasons since turning 40. he has averaged over 30 TD per season with 40 this year. 40 touchdowns at 43 years old. his QB rating is also over 100 at age 43. 4600 passing yards. had he not been pulled in game 15, he might have thrown 43 TDs at age 43.
I think he is the greatest "old" athlete we have ever seen.
