Tom Brady Continues To Defy Laws of Aging In Preseason Debut
Tom Brady, the face of the New England Patriots and quarterback extraordinaire, has proved time and time again that he is one of the best ever. At 37 years old, talk continues of his impending retirement and supposed reality that he is no longer an elite quarterback. In his first preseason appearance, Brady showcased his talent in less than one quarter of action and 13 passes, proving once more that he is still the same old quarterback the entire league should fear. Once again, he showed the league and football fans that he doesn’t plan on slowing down just yet.
Among his preseason stats thus far, Brady has thrown a touchdown, completed nine of his 13 tosses, and showcased an offense that looked top-notch with all of its starters. Brady did throw an interception — the only tarnish on his otherwise perfect outing. Despite the pick six, Brady’s passes were crisp, generally accurate, and all-in-all reflective of the Brady of yesteryear that football fans and the New England faithful have grown to love.
The offense, including Julian Edelman and Kembrell Thompkins, who has not performed to his ability in training camp, looked organized and in sync with one another. Brady seemed especially comfortable tossing the ball to Danny Amendola, who was one of his least reliable targets last season, but has shown resurgence as of late in both training camp and preseason games.
Brady may not be 23 years old anymore, but his New England Patriots are still most dangerous with the future Hall of Famer at the helm. Age is said to be just a number, and Brady is proving all of his critics wrong once again by playing with the same confidence and skill he showcased to the world for the first time nearly 14 years ago — the confidence and skill that brought him his first Super Bowl title.
