I'd submit that Brady did not look like he enjoyed playing football this year, at least not in the half a dozen or so games I saw. So I'm wishing for it to end mostly because his public comments--and IMO demeanor--don't equate to a guy who loves his job. And one of the joys of watching him over the years--including his first year with the Bucs--was seeing not only the GOAT's career take shape but also the joy of watching a great player who loved playing. So regardless of age or ability (he's clearly still good, often very good), he simply doesn't look the same. And I'm petty enough (even in middle age) for the shenanigans with Miami to bother me.I don't understand this at all. How often do you actually hear Brady talk about any of this stuff? I've never seen the actual concussion water, but that happened in what, 2015? Other people bring up the diet (which isn't that peculiar for highly-trained athletes) and self-help stuff. He's as bland now as he was in NE, with some occasional glimpses of being an actual human (avocado tequila and trophy tosses should be celebrated).
It sounds more like you're tired of the media around him, which is easy to avoid. But watching him play is still pretty incredible, and a treat imho. We're witnessing one of the greatest sporting careers ever, I don't get why people are so intent on wishing it to end. The guy has brought Pats fans an immeasurable amount of joy; let the guy finish on his own terms.
