    Honestly, that was a very poorly played hand and it's a little sad that this is how it ends when he probably had two chances to go out on top.

    Still, TB12 is obviously one of, if not the, best to ever play the position.

    What an amazing career.

    The best who ever did it. It will be very strange to follow the NFL without Tommy active.

    I am happy he retired and I am happier still that I was fortunate enough to have seen him play. One of things about human memory is that as it ages it tends to become sweeter. We'll all be reminiscing about the GOAT for many years to come.

    I obviously owe this man a huge thank you for all of the great memories I got to share with my old man & son. Not to mention turning all of those Brady rookies I bought early in his career into pretty good money down the road (even though I did sell them about 2 yrs too early.)
    Thanks Tom! 👍

    Now after the past year he just had where he got divorced, lost about 100M in the FTX scandal, finished under .500 for the only time in his NFL career before bowing out in the playoffs with that poor showing against the Cowboys, I hope he goes on a long vacation with his kids,eat some fast food and see if G will take his retired ass back. 😎

    I'm neither a Brady fan nor hater. I thought it was pretty ridiculous when he retired the first time and then changed his mind shortly after. But I was happy to see him retire this time in a mellow, unstaged manner and did not turn it into the circus it could have been. After losing his family last year (his fault or not, I do not know), I hope the guy is able to find some peace in retirement.

    He said he would play until he "sucks". Well. there you go. "Sucking" is obviously relative, but I guess for Brady last year was it.

    I'll be on the lookout for any Brady slander around here... :D

    It's too bad Tom Brady didn't sign with the Raiders, they really need a quarterback. Luckily, there's a guy named Dom Brading that's interested in the job, new guy, never seen him before.

    I'm indifferent really, Tom Brady will always be the GOAT Patriot and player as far as I'm concerned, if he chooses not to do the 1 day ceremony I will be 50/50 on it

    50% I would think it's because he feels he is above doing that type of thing

    The other 50% could be to stick it to Kraft and Hoodie for his set up for failure in his last season as a Patriot and departure

    If no one else is going to say it, then I will. You know what I think? I think Tom Brady is retiring because he realizes that he screwed things up with Gisele, I think he truly loves her and wants her back. He was miserable this season without her and reportedly lost 15 pounds. You see, love is a heck of a thing, it will bring the strongest man in the world to his knees, mess you up worse than bad chicken!

    Brady’s playoff record is 35-13, which is a winning percentage of 73%. This is against the best teams in football year after year. This would be a great regular season percentage. The only QB close to that is Montana at 70% but he played in 25 fewer playoff games than Brady.
    More typical is Peyton Manning at
    14-13 for 52%. Many great QB’s could not attain a high playoff win percentage because of the great competition. These are probably the numbers that impress me the most about Brady.
    Just thought I would post this because though I’m not a fan of Tom Brady it is the end of a remarkable career.

    I was also waiting for that fact. I was thinking of that when I was replying to him above. Darin is not a Brady fan, as he states. Yet still, the link between Brady and Mahomes is still being built, and is still very relevant. Link. Comparison. Juxtaposition. Whatever.

    I didn’t think it was prudent to post Mahomes record right before the Super Bowl.
    If the Chiefs win then Mahomes first 5 years as a starter will compare favorably with Brady’s first 5 years, both regular and postseason.

    I'm sure that it will be forgotten by some, or cast aside as unimportant, but those two Brady vs Mahomes playoff games should be part of the equation.

    However, if I wanted to guess, I'd say that the majority will pin Mahomes as GOAT if he reaches 5 SB wins.

    Entirely different situations though, Brady started out 9-0 playoffs/3-0 SBs and didn't lose a playoff game until the postseason of his 4th year as starter. Also there really wasn't any real hate for Brady until after Spygate happened,before that it was just hating him for the SB wins and the tuck rule game.

    That's when we remind them lol. Just like Tom will always be 0-2 vs Eli in the SB, Pat will always be 0-2 vs Tom in the AFCCG/SB. 😉

    However, if I wanted to guess, I'd say that the majority will pin Mahomes as GOAT if he reaches 5 SB wins.

    This topic will always be subjective and you know that everyone will have their own criteria for who should be GOAT but,imo, 5 rings wouldn't even be close to cutting it when Brady owns most of the important career passing records as well.

    If 12-15yrs down the road Mahomes ends up taking ownership of many of Tom's records then so be it,its not like Brady's career didn't happen. I figure at that point I'll be too busy touting Jayson Tatum as the basketball GOAT as he passes MJ's Rings and Lebron's career scoring record. 😎😉😎

    Very good point.
    The one that bothers me is the AFC championship game against the pats. The chiefs had it won when they picked off brady but one of our d-linemen lined up offsides.
    The super bowl loss to Tampa bay doesn’t bother me much because kc was never in it. complete blowout. The bucs were amazing that game with a dominating performance

    If the Chiefs continue to play well, Mahomes and KC fatigue will kick in. It happens to every great team. Likable Patty will somehow magically turn into Mahomes the villain. Everyone loved the Brady and Patriots story at the start. Then they became the evil empire.

    I’m just going to stop you right there and correct you.

    From the outside looking in, I would say that the Patriots never curried the favor you guys (the very nice group of Boston sports guys who populate these boards) seem to believe. First, the initial arrival of Bill Parcells bristled most Giants fans and while it was less about the Pats and more about Bill and the slippery way he left the Giants, the Patriots were the ‘shiny new girlfriend’ after the Parcells and Giants’ divorce and the timeline of when one relationship ended and one relationship began was really, really murky - at best. And if you’re thinking I’m some conspiracy theorist, you can either research it or recognize that the entire saga played out again, though in a much shorter time frame, with the Jets and Bill Bellichek a few years later. So that’s two fan bases which were never going to be a part of the Patriots love fest. Thats not to say the Patriot fan base hasn’t grown; there’s certainly many bandwagon fans that followed their success and professed loyalty with a merch purch but also we can’t forget the run of success really began with the Tuck Rule and The Taping. Those two fan bases - the Raiders and Rams - were already upset and feeling like they had been cheated after just the first SuperBowl win. In 2003, at least according to the Panthers GM, they were also taped pre SuperBowl and he was ranting about it before SpyGate was even a thing. Now, if you add in the holding and pass interference rules (more like lack there of, enforcement wise) that were a part of the 2004 season and how that drew the ire of the Titans and Colts teams and their fans and you’re up to nearly a quarter of the league and their fans with legitimate and real (or perhaps just perceived, in some cases) reasons to dislike the Patriots before they’d even hoisted their third Lombardi trophy.

    As I lived in New York City from 99 to 06, I certainly am well aware of the Patriot hate. I was actually referring more to when people turned against Brady. I feel as though he sort of existed as a separate entity outside the organization.
