    i'm praying for a good five years with at least 2 more superbowls, just so he can have the record for the most

    I agree. Of course, I don't play golf with TB ;) but my reading is that he is a balanced guy for whom football is very important but not the overriding obsession it is for PM. He won't hang on if he's on the downslope.

    Screw that let's get greedy - FOUR more in SIX years - total of 7 rings in 12 years sounds about right.

    Yea, Sure would be nice for him play at a high level and finish his career with another couple rings.

    Great thing - He's in his prime, coming off a great season, and pissed off.

    Oh yea, Year TWO with a HOF receiver! :)

    that means 3 more years of hec for us...but then again, Peyton has 2 years left.

    I think it just mainly depends on how good the O-line is

    Brady will remain on the roster until technology allows us to transfer his experience and brains to his replacement.

    But seriously, Belichick has shown he isn't worried about keeping dinosaurs on the roster, and as long as Brady wants to play, he'll be the starting QB, unless that shoulder gives out. Even with the inevitable declining athleticism, he will still be superior to the rest of the league.

    He has said as much himself - hopes to play into his late 30's. Manning is on record saying he wants to play through 2013 which is about 3 years more than his present deal (if you include the voidable 2011-2012 years of that deal).

    This is why O'Connell isn't Young to Brady's Montana anymore than either of the Matt's. All of them will be long gone by 2014. The replacement doesn't have to be on the roster until 2011 or 2012. All the ones that show up in between are just backups and potential trading chips.

    this is a tough thread for me to read. it brings back the last two years, when TB was, as he remains today, at the peak of his talent.

    in one of those years, the pats' Front Office, for whatever reasons that we can debate forever, stripped him of his best weapons and he still almost got it done, with the team running out of steam in the second half of that game in indy we all want to forget. last year, he had the weapons but, for reasons that have been debated for hundreds of hours out here, it didn't happen in Arizona.

    that's easily two more rings he might have had with just a few things breaking differently, some in his control, many not. but the nfl is a tough place to win and every season has its "woulda, shoulda, coulda" teams. The mountain that will loom before the pats and 31 other teams next week is an incredibly difficult one to climb, as BB points out every year at just about this time.

    I don't know what the next three or four years of his career at the peak of his powers will bring, but, personally, I don't ask anything else of him. he's brought it all and he's given it all. another trophy would be incredibly satisfying, but Tom Brady has nothing else to prove.

    I'm thinking five more years, but by Year 4, we may be criticizing him more than normal.

    4 years is a good number IMO....Of course I would like to see him go longer but for now, lets just enjoy the ride of having him as our QB...

    Brady won't be pathetic like Favre... he'll walk away not too long after his prime (none of us know when that will be) and start planning a run for public office

    He's much smarter than most athletes and as such his competitive nature will find another outlet (the only thing Favre knows how to do is play football)

    My prediction is another 5 years

    Well, if you count Lord Favre, then third; if you don't, then second, after the Quarterhick. :)

    Just thinking about it makes me appreciate what we have had. Prior to that we had close, but no cigar.

    It also makes me think I should just relax and enjoy the ride, (but I won't):cool:

    He will break Morten Anderson's record and play until 2024.
