New England Patriots Super Bowl Champs

If Tom Tops the Rams in Super Bowl LIII; Will He Walk Away and Retire?

Tom Brady is a sure-fire Hall of Fame QB, and many think that he’s the greatest of all-time.

With that said, with an impending game in two weeks against the Rams for what would be his 6th Super Bowl, some have questioned if he’s going to call it quits if he happens to win another title.

Pro Football Talk speculated about the subject early on Monday:

With Brady closing in his second straight chance at winning his sixth championship, the question of whether the GOAT would head for the green, green grass of home will re-emerge, and potentially intensify.

Brady has long insisted that he’ll play until he’s 45. Some think that he continues to point to an expiration date well into the future in order to never have what would amount to a farewell tour. Under that theory, Brady would unexpectedly bid farewell at some point short of hitting the halfway point to 90.

The wishes of Mrs. Brady can’t be overlooked. She has spoken publicly regarding her concerns for his health, blurting out during an interview nearly two years ago that Brady has had concussions. Although Brady has managed to keep her on board for two more seasons, she now has 13 days to make the case that the ultimate quarterback needs to become the ultimate showman and walk away on top, before he becomes the ultimate meatball.

The fact that Brady and the Patriots will face in Super Bowl LIII the team that Brady an the Patriots beat in Super Bowl XXXVI gives the moment a certain bit of symmetry and poetry. Brady can bookend his initial championship, put a sixth pelt on the wall, and call it a career.

Brady and the Pats are slight underdogs entering the game against the Rams, but if anyone is ready to bet against the Patriots, they have two weeks to think about changing their minds.
