The 2019-2020 football season has started much like every other of the last two decades, with Touchdown Tom and the New England Patriots playing at the highest level. The team is once again dominating their division and contending for the top squad in the league—with Brady in control at the helm.
In case you forgot, this is Brady's twentieth year in the league, and this is his age 42 season. Football players are supposed to have a short shelf life, and even kickers usually start slowing down well before their fortieth birthday.
But Brady doesn't follow conventional protocol. Everything about the quarterback is different—his success from a low draft position, his gaudy career stat line, his six (and counting?) Super Bowl rings. That unconventional nature is largely why we went so far as to label him the GOAT (that's Greatest of All Time, for those unschooled in unofficial accolades) when he graced the MH cover earlier this year.
