New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady is featured on the cover of the September 2013 issue of Men's Health Magazine. And with the cover comes an interesting interview.

In the article Brady talks about his career, his ambitions and his new sports therapy center at Patriot Place in Foxborough. It’s all very Tom Brady-esque. (Tip: You need to download the Men’s Health Ipad app to get access to full story.)

But perhaps the most interesting part of the Q&A is when Brady talks about the longevity of his career:

When asked about playing past the age of 50, Brady says, “I would love it. If I think if I can do it, then I probably will.”

I know what you’re thinking; tongue-in-cheek, right? Well, maybe not.

With the way Brady has been protected over the years by his offensive line, his ability to make reads & release the ball quicker than most QBs and most important, the new quarterback-friendly NFL rules, it isn’t completely ridiculous.

It’s still ridiculous, but not impossible.

For as immobile as Brady may become, he is just as competitive, motivated and savvy. For a guy who went from a late sixth-round pick to a three-time Super Bowl champion, – I’d say nothing is impossible.

And if you’re still not convinced, here’s one last parting point…

Brady is paired with one of the best NFL coaches of all time. Would you really bet against the Brady-Belichick duo on ANYTHING?

4 Comments:
  • I think I will bet against the Brady-Belichick duo, after all it made me a ton of money in 2008 and 2012!
  • Well, he's been on steroids since his first year in the NFL, so he might make it.
  • Would love to see Brady play to 50, very good athlete and role model for all other athletes.
  • So Tom Brady wants to after his body fails him, to ride the bench and collect a paycheck on the sidelines while at the very same time, his AARP card arrives in the mail.

    That's cool if the Patriots or another team is stupid enough to do that.

    At least he didn't say he wanted to still be a starting QB until age 50 because I don't care how good the offensive line is, his mid life crisis body will get hit and hit very often.

    At least he can dream.

The rumors have persisted that QB Tom Brady may not have the patience with guys not being able to get on the same page. He addressed that...

Julian Edelman’s Return to Patriots’ Practice Gives Tom Brady More Security in Slow-Developing Passing Game

FOXBORO, Mass. — Julian Edelman trotted out onto the practice field at Gillette Stadium with his teammates in full pads, which must have been a welcome sight for Tom Brady.
