Some people say Tom Brady is the best quarterback of all time. Since being drafted by the Patriots in 2000 he’s been a starting quarterback for 15 years and has led his team to 7 Super Bowls. He won 5 of those Super Bowls, the most of any player in the history of the NFL.

But last Thursday night when the Patriots played the Kansas City Chiefs, Brady didn’t look so good. He didn’t complete that many passes and he just seemed a little off. The Patriots lost 42-27.

Tom Brady just turned 40 on August 3rd, becoming the 20th quarterback to play in an NFL game after turning 40, and I think now he’s showing signs of his age.  He was sacked 3 times and only completed 16 out of 36 passes. Other quarterbacks in NFL history also went downhill after turning 40, like Doug Flutie, Brett Favre and Warren Moon. Favre retired at 41, Flutie retired at 43 years old and Moon retired at 44.

Brady has said he wants to play for as long as he can but he should learn a lesson from other quarterbacks in history and call it a career while he’s still good.
