Today's Headlines - Realty Times

All-pro quarterback Tom Brady has retired from the National Football League after 22 years of leading the New England Patriots and the Tampa Bay Buccaneers to Super Bowl victories. He led those two teams to seven Super Bowl championships while earning five (MVP) Most Valuable Player awards. Most likely both records will stand for a long time, perhaps forever! Records, they say, are there to be broken and perhaps Brady’s will. 

There is one NFL record that the TunneySide guarantees will always stand. That is the one head coach Don Shula formerly of the Baltimore Colts and Miami Dolphins achieved. Shula had 347 victories in his 31-year career. It seems impossible for any head coach to last that long in the NFL today or in the future. 

Brady vacillated, perhaps with some sleepless nights, in making his final decision. Almost every NFL player, coach, and or game official has that tough decision to make. I know I did after 31 NFL seasons. The opportunity to be on the field with some of the finest athletes in the world is something beyond special that one wants to maintain. So many players I have known have that difficulty in deciding when to retire and, in fact, may move to another team to continue playing.

Joe Namath of the New York Jets moved on the Los Angeles Rams. Johnny Unitas, after an illustrious career with the Baltimore Colts, was traded to the San Diego Chargers. Joe Montana, Ronnie Lott, Jerry Rice, and many, many more – all Hall of Famers – could have just retired but wanted to remain in the NFL. Will Tom Brady follow in those footsteps? It doesn’t seem he likely will. Other players have been recruited by television to serve as game analyses to explain the game to the viewers. Brady may well be interested in that. However, in today’s NFL salary cap the enormous amount of money that players and coaches can retain is enough to sustain a financial lifestyle. Stay tuned.

One more note about the title G.O.A.T. The TunneySide does not accept that title in a T*E*A*M sport. No QB or running back can achieve that level of success without a strong protective offensive line of seven blockers/protective linemen. If you want to use that G.O.A.T. term for competitive swimmer Michael Phelps or gymnast Simone Biles, then we can accept that.

Will you log in with your thought about the G.O.A.T. theory?
