Default Brady Contemplating Retirement

WOW .... could be complete bullshit because it is coming from a blog site, but the blogger's good friend is buddy's with Tom himself. Still, take it for what its worth, but I'd be extremely surprised if he did in fact retire at such a young age.

But something came by our desk last night that we simply can’t ignore. And we got to it first! Nice!

I attended Michigan for a grand total of ONE semester back in the mid-90’s. but I stayed there long enough to become friends with a guy named Graham (not his real name) from San Mateo, California. If you know your Dreamboatology (and why wouldn’t you?), Graham hails from the exact same town as the one and only Tom Brady, and was friends with Brady in high school and all the way through college.

Now I had lost touch with Graham until a while back when he emailed KSK with a link, without actually knowing who I was. Reacquainted, we shared emails over the past year and had some back and forth about Brady. Graham, turns out, remained decent friends with Brady after college and through his rise to stardom. I always prodded him for info about Brady, but he never had much of anything interesting to report. He also became very good friends with Bridget Moynahan when she and Brady were a couple.

Now, here’s where it gets mildly somewhat more interesting.

I wish I could tell you Graham nailed Moynahan (whee!), but he didn’t. This is far more innocuous. Since Graham now resides in Los Angeles, and since he sees Moynahan on a far more regular basis than Brady because she too lives there, she gained “custody” of Graham as a friend after the breakup, and he fell out of contact with Brady, who has shrunk his number of close friends as he’s grown more famous, in an attempt to safeguard his privacy.

But, in a twist, as Graham has lost touch with Brady, he’s learned way about him as he’s become good buddies with Moynahan. And yesterday, he sent me an email that contained this pretty choice nugget.

Dude, Brady’s gonna retire. He told Bridget after the season was over he was definitely going to retire so he could help raise the kid. As it stands now, he’s pulled between football in Boston, New York where Gisele is, and LA where his kid is. So he said retiring from football would get rid of one of the drags on his time. And after the Pats go 19-0, he knows he’ll never top that. Only reason he’d stay around is to be the first QB to win five SB’s, but he doesn’t seem to care all that much. He’s the kind of guy that can live without the game.

Indeed. Who needs football when you have goats to milk and models to bang? Anyway, this whole bit of knowledge strikes me as horseshit, with Brady just making empty promises to his lady. It would be like me promising my wife I’ll never eat strawberry preserves straight out of the jar in front of our kid again. Oh sure, I mean it at the time. But do I follow through? Nah.

But Graham says Brady has been talking to friends about retiring for the better part of the season. I asked if Belichick was also going to retire, but he didn’t have an answer for that. I have no clue why Graham let me put this out there. But I’m not quibblin’. Nothing he's told me in the past about Brady has been incorrect, so I'm throwing it out there. It’s a KSK Exklusive!

So enjoy 19-0, Pats fans. You may be looking at the end of an era.

what else would he have to prove? He's been an MVP, a super bowl MVP, a rookie of the year, he would have guided the Pats to a perfect season. You can't really top something like that. I hope he retires, only because I dislike the bastard.

he has alot to lose...
being remembered as the greatest QB ever... thats what.

if he can continue to play like this for the next 5 years, he'd be past marino, farve, montana, young, theisman, nameth...ect.
he'd be consensus number 1. and thats huge for a qb especially because no one ever gets that honor... the field is so close and theres so much talent... but if he can continue this play throughout his creer, he'd break away from the pack.

In terms of passing proficiency, he'll never be mentionned with the all time greats - Montana, Elway, Marino, Favre, Manning. His supporting casts in New England have never been great until this season. You can mention him as one of the best in the clutch though. He would have to play for a lot more years (like at least 10+ years) to be considered one of the best passing QBs of all time/consensus #1

yes but he'd be mentioned with all those greats though...
he's won how many superbowl rings?
he's MVP...
td record...
perfect season ?

NE isnt going to lose its core next season either, so im sure he'll put together another superb year... if he can string along 3 more seasons like this, he'll be considered numero uno.

I don't think NE would string together another season like that next year. Sure, they'll be good, but nothing like they're accomplishing this year. Everyone is gonna be better and gunning for them. Think about how many records they broke.. and to think of them putting up a comperable season next season or the year after that is hard to imagine.
If Brady wins a ring this year, you'd have to put him up there with the greats just because of his clutch play in his career and the season he's having this year.

With that being said, I still don't believe the report. He'll be back next season.

theres no way NE can duplicate this season... but at the same time they'll have another huge year... 13-3 at least... playoffs for sure... and who knows... another super bowl isnt out of the question.
he will continue to put up huge numbers.
but you're right hoops, he's not retiring. no way.
