When asked what it would mean for him to earn his seventh ring, Brady said, “It would be just cool to accomplish it this time around. I don’t compare them to the other times. They are all magical moments in my life, and no they can never be taken from me, and hopefully we can end this season strong and win a Super Bowl. That’s why we’re here, that’s why we play. It would make a season really. magic for us. “
Magic being the key word throughout Brady’s career. So why stop now, or in two years?
When asked if he still thinks of playing beyond 45, the answer was, “Yes, definitely. “
“I would definitely consider that,” he continued. “It’s a physical sport. The perspective I have on it is that you never know when that moment is [to stop]. Quite simply because it is a contact sport. There is a lot of training that goes into it. And it has to be a 100% commitment on my part to keep doing it. “
He continued, “I think I’ll know when it’s time. I don’t know when that moment will come, but I think I will. And I will understand that I have given this game everything I can. . I don’t think I could ever get into this game halfway. I have to put it all in. When I put it all in there [and] I feel like I can’t do this anymore, I don’t feel like I can commit to the team the way the team needs me, so I think he is. probably time to go. “
A perfect sunset will surely be happy to oblige.
