Brady: ‘I’m Better Now Than I was Five Years Ago’

Tom Brady said last week that he wants to play ten more years in the NFL and he’s said in the past that if athletes trained like him they could play forever. Brady showed us yet again on Sunday that age seems to be a number for him.

Brady threw for 355 yards and 2 touchdowns with a passer rating of 94.3 in the Jets’ 27-20 win over the New York Jets, moving the Patriots to 6-0 on the season. This was yet another great performance from Brady this year, and he is feeling better than he was in 2010, according to himself.

Brady was on Dennis and Callahan” on WEEI on Monday, and he said again to us that he wants to play another 10 years, saying What else am I going to do?” — and said he thinks he’s better now than he was five years ago.

“I think so,” Brady said. “I don’t know. I try to be critical of myself. I think I’m making all the throws I need to make. There can always be things I can do better. I’ve worked hard always on my throwing mechanics. I worked hard this offseason on them. Playing quarterback is throwing the ball accurately, being able to make the throws, being durable and making good decisions. I try to take care of the good decision part, I try to take care of the accurate part, I try to take care of the durability part. Then it comes down to leadership and relating to your teammates and all those things that are different challenges that you face as you get older.”

Brady has thrown for 2,054 yards, 16 touchdowns, and a passer rating of 113.2 so far this season. If he throws four more touchdown next week, he will be on pace to throw for 40 touchdowns while he is currently the favorite for MVP right now.
