Bill Belichick and Tom Brady are about to face off against each other for the first time next weekend. So the Patriots head coach and the Buccaneers quarterback are expected to be asked a lot of questions about each other ahead of the reunion.
WEEI 93.7 in Boston got that ball rolling on Monday morning when Belichick joined the broadcast. The first matter of business? Brady's recent remarks that he could play until he is 50 years old.
"I’m sure Tom would know better than anybody, so if anybody can do it it’s him," Belichick said.
Brady originally said he could see himself playing until he is 45. But considering he is now 44 and showing no signs of slowing down, setting his sights on playing for six more years doesn't seem all that far-fetched.
He set a league record in Sunday's 48-25 win over the Falcons by becoming the oldest player to throw five touchdowns in a game. He has now recorded nine TDs for 655 yards in the first two weeks of the season alone.
I believe Tom Brady is now 14 TD passes away from throwing more TDs in his 40s than his 20s. Simply absurd.— Bill Zimmerman (@ZimmermanSXM) September 19, 2021
