    Hard to do Montana/Rice when Brady has achieved so much more than them. Brady makes sense even if he is still playing. I think because his story is still going on, the viewership may be even more intense because everyone old and young has watched him play unlike Jordan.

    In terms of the Patriots speak, I don't think you will get that from Brady at all especially now that he is with Tampa and can really let loose.

    Well, you describe Brady in derogetory terms and you do the same with Brady fans. What are people supposed to think? Im not defining you. Your own words do.

    He's actually smart not to wait. Nobody knows how it'll go with the Bucs; he could end his career with a whimper or with a bang. If a bang he can add another chapter and come out with another video, otherwise he's done and benefitted from this production.

    Killing two people didn't hurt Ray Lewis' legacy one bit. I think Brady will do fine even though he chose to make a mini-series about his career.

    I’m gonna say that killing two people is the first or second thing that the vast majority of people immediately associate with Ray Lewis.

    I’m going to say it’s a joke to most people, the rest of them ignore it because of the lack of full transparency, and only a minority of people strongly hate him for it

    Yes, that's correct, but I was thinking more of his football legacy and the fact that he was honored with a statue.

    Not sure I'm afraid if that's really true outside of New England...

    Brady leaving may end up being a good thing in that we all finally get some inside dirt before we die.

    Brady will never be the sports brand that Jordan is.

    The big difference is that Jordan marketed from the start of his career to the end with things like Nike. Brady attached himself to high end luxury brands for a long time the average person wasn’t using or niche things like uggs. Under Armour didn’t even happen until 2010 well into his career.

    Jordan was a world class marketer

    I'd rather Brady have editorial control than ESPN.

    But since he didn’t need to do anything but focus on football, I don’t really like the branding efforts

    Tom & Giselle have far more wealth than Jordan or Manning did, so the branding is really just ego driven. Don’t get me wrong, he has every right to pursue whatever he chooses. But he did seem to start getting more moody around the “Tom vs Time” period

    It's over. As measured by SB's. He'll still put up some stats. Go to the Playoffs. But the competition is what he was when he was younger.

    I don’t know if anyone will.

    Jordan built a brand around himself and had almost no competition. Thirty years later, it’s the norm, and it’s unlikely anyone will stand out again like that.
