    He has and has done everything for this organization and turned into the greatest player in NFL history bringing us SB after SB.

    But if/when he leaves for another team...or retirement. I will be in a dark place for a while and I keep getting this feeling this is the last ride in NE or football in general. But who knows

    Don’t forget that Tom told Giselle “just two more” in the Tom vs. Time documentary, when he had five wins. I believe their agreement is play until 45 or 7 titles.

    If the Mass. Millionaires tax doesn’t pass, Conn is a significantly more expensive tax state
    If Mass millionaires tax passes, the two states would essentially be tax equal for Brady

    Mass state income tax 5%
    Mass millionaires tax proposal 4%
    Mass property tax 1.22% of assessed value
    (0.937% in Brookline)
    Conn state income tax 7%
    Conn property tax 2% ( only $10k is deductible for all states)

    Calculating where Brady earns his income (8 games in Mass) and yearly property tax difference of estimated $200k for an assessed $20 mill house.

    Then Conn. residents have to contend with collapsing tax base (income tax and property tax revenue) as residents and employers flee the state in anticipation of radical tax increases to fund an overextended state government. Do the math
    If solvent Mass. is proposing a millionaires tax, it’s only a matter of time near insolvent Conn crafts their next tax boost
    The wealthy that stick around in Conn will be footing the bill

    Note:Much of the hedge fund industry that made the Greenwich area their base of operations has made Jupiter, Fl their new home. One of the main reasons S Conn real estate has collapsed

    That's interesting, I didn't know that. I'm far from being a tax expert so...

    Connecting dots to try and convince us Brady is leaving reminds me of the mediots trying to convince us the Jets had a chance last week.

    I strongly doubt Brady plays elsewhere.

    Maybe we should trade him now for 2 first rounders and see if Stidham can ball out or no?

    I think Brady just wants to avoid getting lowballed.

    No. The Patriots still have the rights to Gronk contract wise.

    I was gonna say the same thing.

    I haven't seen Tom vs. Time, but I do remember that after the sixth Super Bowl, he said something like, "when I started in the league, I always thought seven championships would be amazing. That was my goal."

    If, hypothetically, we were to go undefeated and he were to win #7.... I could totally see him hanging it up. Or even just if we won a seventh this year, regardless of us going undefeated.

    If he leaves now, it will barely have been worth drafting him.

    What MA town do you live in where the RE tax rate is only $10 per $1000??? Pretty sure very few municipalities are that low.

    Also, the deductibility limit is $10K (not $15K) for all state and local taxes combined. So if you’re say deducting $10K of income tax you can’t deduct any RE tax at all.

    We could have won with Steve Grogan as the starter against the Jets!

    Same here. I won’t like it and I’m likely to say many things. Most will be incomprehensible, but in the end, I’ll still be a pats fan.

    The Pats gave Brady the contract they did because they are agnostic about Brady continuing to perform. If they do not win this year, with this defense, BB is going to question whether the offense with Brady can still win. The decision to part in that case would likely be mutual.

    I agree. This isn't just about what Brady wants.
