This Wild Tom Brady Tidbit Puts QB’s Longevity Into Perspective –

Look, were running out of ways to explain what Tom Brady is doing.

That hes still playing at age 43 is an accomplishment in itself. Still winning Super Bowl titles? Absolutely bananas.

Yet thats the reality. Brady, the greatest quarterback in NFL history, just secured his seventh ring in his first season with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. He won six across 20 years with the New England Patriots.

Amazingly, Brady is showing no signs of slowing down. Now, playing until age 45 not only is possible. Its a near certainty. The only real question is whether Brady will continue beyond that, because its hard to imagine him calling it quits if hes still performing at a high level.

The Boston Sports Info Twitter account (@bostonsportsinf) shared a tweet Wednesday that put Bradys wild longevity into perspective.

Basically, its a list of other legendary athletes in the NFL and other sports whove already punched their tickets to the Hall of Fame despite being born after Brady:

Kobe Bryant NBASteve Hutchinson NFLBrian Urlacher NFLChamp Bailey NFLEdgerrin James NFLEd Reed NFLMarian Hossa NHLTracy McGrady NBALaDainian Tomlinson NFLYao Ming NBATroy Polamalu NFLCalvin Johnson NFL

This obviously is meant to show that while those incredible athletes are years removed from their respective playing careers, to the point where they were eligible for Hall of Fame enshrinement, Brady still is thriving between the lines with no finish line in sight.

Simply put: Theres nothing left for Brady to prove. At this point, hes just running up the score in terms of whos the GOAT. His rsum is unmatched, and hell undoubtedly enter the Hall of Fame soon after he closes the book on his illustrious NFL career.

Then again, he might never close said book. Or, when he finally does, itll only be after the above list grows to include a few more notable names.
