Since the subject of Brady's age keeps coming up, one natural question is: Are there signs of a slowdown or deterioration already? I can think of a few hints, but nothing that's close to proven. Strength -- wouldn't be the first thing to go, but anyhow seems fine. Quickness. Brady's most noteworthy quickness is eluding the rush. I'm in the camp that says he got a bit of happy feet post-Pollard. Perhaps that's also because he knows he's slowed slightly. But to call the evidence "inconclusive" is to overstate its persuasiveness. Slowness recovering from injury (by which I mean mainly minor injuries of the kind everybody plays through). He does seem to have had more (of course undisclosed) lingering injuries in recent years. Accuracy. Other than the odd-looking loss of reliability on his old bread-and-butter swing pass, I can't think of any loss of accuracy. And that can be explained by not focusing on as much in practice. Bottom line: The only area where I lean toward "Yes, Brady has already slowed a bit" is in his recovery from injury. And even that is quite speculative.
