Tom Brady Addresses Unretiring?
We all know it would be TOO good to be true. As this week Tom Brady addresses unretiring, it couldn’t come at a better, or worse time.
Entering NFL Season Week 6, we almost wish the season was over. To many it already is, with the Patriots dismal 1-4 record. We or at least some, can’t believe the calls for the firing of Bill Belichick, the coach who helped lead our Patriots to a glorious twenty seasons, winning not one, but SIX Super Bowl rings. The Pats championship success story fueled the self esteem of our region, our home for so many years.
But now, our self esteem is crushed, wondering will we every see our winning team, A winning team back at Gillette every again? Television analysts say no. Former Coach Rex Ryan and others say our success ended when Brady walked out the door. Watching this clip is like seeing the climax of a horror movie in the opening credits:

Dan Orlosvky with one of the worst takes of all time:
After Tom Brady announced his leaving the Patriots on March 17, 2020, (yes, I remember the date) some thought that maybe a positive Patriots legacy could be decided in the competent hands of Belichick. After all for years we’ve been told, it’s not just one man, it’s the team that wins games.
Speaking of horror movies, that theory began to unravel when the very next year in his FIRST season with the Buccaneers, Brady took them to a Super Bowl win, the first time since 2003. By the way, did I mention that at the time of the win, Tom was the OLDEST quarterback in the NFL, defeating the YOUNGEST, up and coming star Patrick Mahomes?
Tom Brady Addresses Unretiring
In a desperate Hail Mary, I found this article with Tom sharing thoughts about actually UNRETIRING. On a recent podcast he said unretirement only happens once. According to CBS Sports Tom says:
“My parents would call, my kids would call. They’d kill me. I wouldn’t be around by tonight,” Brady said. “As I said, you’re only allowed one un-retirement. And I’ve used it up.”
Tom deserves the most happiness in retirement, giving us twenty amazing seasons, six Super Bowl rings, and the best team a football fan can dream of. To want Tom back while a dream come true, would be selfish, wouldn’t it?
Well we always have the Bruins.
