Patriots QB Tom Brady’s Next Move is Rightfully His Decision

If this is the end of the Tom Brady era in New England please keep your head held high.

The Patriots may have suffered a loss to the Tennessee Titans in the Wild Card game on Saturday night but any type of sorrow should be short lived. An end of any era can be a sad affair but the end of Brady in New England should be a joyous one.

Brady played for the Patriots for twenty NFL seasons and it that timeframe helped deliver six Super Bowl titles. Brady, a former pick 199 was a 14-time Pro Bowler, Three-Time All-Pro and a three-time NFL MVP.

The 42-year-old QB’s future is very much an unknown at this moment and very well may rely on the decision of Josh McDaniels who is always rumored to be departing New England buts seemingly hasn’t done so in recent years.

Do fans have the right to feel sad in the moment after a loss like this? Of course they do. But respecting what Brady has accomplished and acknowledging that an unheralded type run has potentially come a to a close is the reasonable outcome.

A Logan Ryan pick-six potentially being the last pass Brady has in a NEw England uniform of course doesn’t fell right. It doesn’t feel like the final chapter of what has been a storybook story that rivals Cinderella.

2019 wasn’t a great year for Brady partially due to an inconsistent offensive line and a real lack of reliable options in the passing game. Brady ended up posting a 60.8 completion percentage (worst since 2013), and throwing 24 passing touchdowns (lowest since 2008) while posting a 88.0 QBR (lowest since 2008).

In his career the GOAT has mounted 36 Fourth quarter comebacks and posted 45 game-winning drives. In the post-season Brady has logged 9 fourth quarter comebacks and 13 post season game winning drives. Brady is a first-ballot Hall of Famer and by all definitions the greatest to ever play his position. Anything he decides to do from here on out is his decision and one that he has rightfully earned.
