Say goodbye to the GOAT
Tom Brady is retiring from football after 22 seasons in the NFL. He leaves as the undisputed (dont argue it, you will lose) best quarterback to ever play the game.
A little known fact about Tom Brady, but he was actually a 6th round pick (199th overall) in the 2000 NFL draft. The 6th quarterback taken. I write that with the heaviest amount of sarcasm because its the most talked about thing with Brady.
He went on to take the job from Drew Bledsoe after Bledsoe went down with an injury against the Jets. The rest is history. His 22 seasons in the NFL saw him throw for 84,520 passing yards, 624 touch down passes and 203 interceptions. He also won 3 MVP awards and 7 Super Bowls. It would have been 8 but….
We watched greatness. We watched it all. And Eagles fans take solace in knowing that they beat Brady for Super Bowl 52. He was a once in a lifetime player and he steps away.
