    I don't know if this is worth a thread, but we have a long week off. This tidbid showed up in Ian Rapoport's most recent column on NFL.com:

    Rex Ryan, New York Jets are susceptible to Tim Tebow mania - NFL.com

    ??? Brady says "there's no coach I ever want to play for than [BB]" on the occasion of BB's 200th win, and Rapoport turns it into a "Brady might retire after his contract expires after the 2014 season" fishing trip?

    Brady was high as a kite after that game.

    Listen to him in the locker room and look at him grinning and giggling like a sixteen-year-old who's just got a date.

    All perfectly legal. It's just that he likes winning -- and against the Jets ten times as much. Do you think he loves Belichick for making it possible? I ask you ...

    You make too much sense. Your logical interpretation disqualifies you from a media gig.

    I have posted before, and I'll stick with my opinion: Brady knows his place in history. He, and Belichick, are key to avoid any distractions. Brady knows that any talk about how long he wants to play has to err on the other side of 39 in order to keep the wolves at bay, as he knows the "Tom Brady Farewell Tour" would be a distraction of biblical proportions. He's never going to tell us what he really thinks, because he knows the media will be all over him if he says anything other than "40 or better". The problem comes, as he gets closer to that 4-0 number, he can't hide from it. I have felt all along that he'll be all done when this contract expires. He'll show up sometime in the middle of March or July, when there is absolutely nothing going on, and announce his retirement. Then, he and Gisele will go buy some south Pacific country and be gone. He'll show up to run for office or act in the movies once the cries for him to return have died off.

    The only question in my mind is whether or not he and Belichick go out together or not.

    Once you said Tom would act, you lost any remaining credibility

    he's just reciprocating the exact language BB uses when asked about him; "there's no QB I'd want coach more." A way of being complimentary without allowing a quote to become controversial by being spun as a put down of other coaches/QBs. I don't know whether they have a summit or something on how to carefully say things but the consistency is impressive.

    Belichick is the coach of the Patriots.

    Brady says he wouldn't want to play for any other coach.

    So Rappaport takes that to mean Brady ends up in San Fran.

    What insight.

    Anyone else notice how Tom didn't know quite what to do with that turkey leg after the Jets game. Meanwhile, Vince was all over that turkey.

    The legendarily narcissistic I-an Rapapport???

    He is improving - - he referenced himself only four times in those four paragraphs. The therapy must be working. Hopefully, he no longer texts while sitting at people's funerals.

    What is hilarious is his claim that he has never heard Brady say such a thing as he wouldn't want to play for any other coach. He's said that SEVERAL times over the past few years - - even when I-an was a beat writer in Boston.

    It's all manufactured garbage by a hack reporter.

    That's not what was written in the article. His thoughts about San Fran were a priori Brady's press conference.

    I think they both will retire together...could be as early as 2014. If they win another SB by then...they are DEFINITELY both gonna retire by then. Neither has anything else to prove...

    Brady's playing at an MVP level in 2012, is it really reasonable to believe his play will deteriorate so much by 2014 that Belichick won't be interested in renewing his contract? Brady has said countless times that he wants to play football for as long as he can. Bill may very well start looking into grooming a replacement for him in the coming years, and I wouldn't be surprised to see us draft a quarterback high in the next couple of drafts, but unless Tom gets injured, I don't see how he's not under contract in 2014/2015.
