I don't think posters should be shy in speculating Tom is slowing down - even if it's milliseconds worth of time. It's natural for humans in their 40s to experience a degredation in reaction time. I have no doubt Tom's reaction time isn't what it was 20 years ago.Not at all, just wondering if missing the OTA's has effected his timing and stating the obvious that the end of his career is coming sooner rather than later....
The debate is if his age and reaction time are imparing his performance. For me, I'm not ready to make that claim.
I'm much more concerned about Gronk slowing down than Tom.
