Is It Over?

Is It Over?

With the recent loss to the Dallas Cowboys, Tom Brady looks like he’s finally hit the wall. His arm looks like it’s declined, and with the inability to run the ball, Tom Brady looks like he should go home.

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers have struggled all season long. They were 32nd in rushing yards and Tom Brady at 45 years old was averaging 44 passing attempts per game. He threw 5045 yards, 27 touchdowns, 10 interceptions, and he completed 65.7% of his passes. All of his stats declined heavily from last year and he didn’t look like the Tom Brady we all know and hate. He was throwing passes into the ground and when he would try to throw to Mike Evans, his number 1 receiver, he threw more interceptions than touchdowns. He had a losing record for the first time in his career and it looks like it’s time for Brady to retire.

Now a lot of his issues can be placed on his terrible offensive line play and his inability to run the ball. Even with that though, when Brady would throw, it looked like it took a lot more effort than it used to. Off-the-field issues might have also had something to do with his decline. His divorce from Gisele B√ľndchen might have had Brady focused on a lot of other things but football. He also retired last season and decided to come out of retirement to play this season, which looks like it was a mistake. He’s lost his MVP form and turning 46 next football season won’t help.

Now a lot of reports have come out saying that there are teams like the Las Vegas Raiders who want Brady, but it’s unclear what his decision is. He hasn’t said much about playing next season or if it will be with the Buccaneers but the Bucks seem very eager to have Brady back. No one really knows what’s going on with Tom Brady, but it’s unclear what is happening with his career and at this point, no one would be surprised if he retired and his reign over the NFL was over.
