ESPN’s Max Kellerman was right about Tom Brady

This is an embarrassing situation.

In the summer of 2016, Max Kellerman expect it Tom Brady’s skill will fall off a cliff. “Tom Brady is almost done. This might be his next game he plays, it might be a year from now, but he’s going to fall off a cliff. Tom Brady will be a bum in no time.”

Of course, since then, he’s added three Lombardi Awards to his mantle, relentlessly mocking Kellerman, telling countless self-deprecating jokes, and issuing multiple on-air apologies for being so cold.

In 2021 Kellerman tweeted:

Well… Tom Brady finally fell off the cliff. It may have taken longer than anyone thought, it may have taken until Brady turned 45, it may have taken him six years instead of his “next game” or “a year from now” but it happened.

Although laughs from Molly Kerem and Stephen A. Smith when he said it, however, the logic of it was sound. By definition, you can’t be the best at a sport forever. Although it seemed at times that Brady could play as long as he wanted, Father Time actually comes down to everyone. Look at any Brady stats from this year. Touchdown passes, quarterback rating, yards per attempt, and many others were the lowest in his career or since he was in his early twenties.

Brady got his first ever game An 8-9 losing season, although it looked like a 5-11 team that got lucky a few times. The Bucs only made the playoffs because of the terrible split and they were promptly revved up.

What is Brady doing now?

There is speculation about him going to another team, but I’m not sure who wants him at this point. I can’t think of a situation that has been proposed so far that makes sense to both Brady and the team.

Returning to the Patriots feels like a sideways move at best in terms of the entirety of their roster. The Raiders just went 6-11, and I don’t think Brady is enough to turn that situation around, especially in a division with two playoff teams. He probably wouldn’t go there unless he really wanted to keep playing soccer, and that might be the case.

There are always dolphins, team Brady allegedly wanted to stage a coup After announcing his retirement a year ago. They may have gone pedestrian 9-8, but they were 8-4 in games he started and finished, and in one of those losses he later found out that He had a concussion during the game. Tom Brady is the best and most accomplished quarterback in league history. But in 2023 if the choice is between 25 years old Tua is 46 years old Brady, with the exception of Toa’s devastating brain injury and the person who makes the decision, the answer is Toa.

Some are trying to force the idea that he will play his final season(s) on the San Francisco 49ers, the team he watched grow up. The thing is, and I can’t believe I’m saying this either, why would they want Tom Brady when they do Already have a Brooke Purdy? Did we really forget about the game just a few weeks ago when the Purdy-led 49ers beat the Bucs so badly that the network had to cut the respects of the Bucs families?

The 49ers found what every NFL team is looking for: a cheap quarterback. They could put more of their money into keeping guys like Debo Samuel, Christian McCaffrey, Nick Bossa and George Kettle. Purdy is undefeated and will make $934,000 a year for the next three seasons. Why a team where any quarterback seemingly replacing his soon-to-be 46-year-old who earned $15,000,000 last season could succeed? Brady was paid nearly as much per game as Purdy did all season.

And I know it’s not really fair to say the match was Purdy vs Brady. They were never on the court at the same time and Brady was up against the best team in the league, but it’s not like the Bucs have a bad roster surrounding him.

Yes, the running game was terrible, and that was definitely a huge factor in their failure. When a quarterback leads the league in pass attempts like Brady did, it’s usually not a good sign. But he had quality receivers to throw like Mike Evans and Chris Goodwin. And as much as Brady loved yelling at the offensive linemen on the sidelines as if he was their dad, they allowed sacks just 2.9 percent of the time Brady fell back to throw, the lowest in the NFL and the lowest in Brady’s career. While the 49ers will definitely be a step up for Brady, it’s not like he’s playing a bunch of guys on the practice squad this year.

When Brady Vaux retired after last season, he was going On the top. He had gotten out of the car, but chose to jump back in next to Susan Sarandon and fly off the edge of the cliff. Now we all have to do the noble thing and admit to Max Kellerman that we were wrong. Are we getting him an “I’m sorry I made fun of a sport that was finally right” cake? Is a thoughtful text enough? Either way, that doesn’t change anything about him “I want Iguodala”. We can still make fun of him for that.
