Tom Brady told the world he wanted to play into his mid 40s. Some smart people believed him, some dumb people didn't. And now here we are, examining the details of his newly inked contract where it makes him a Patriot through 2021. Amazing.
Here's what's going to happen: Edelman comes back, Tom has an more easily flowing exhaust outlet where he can throw the ball, and at the same time he gains a spark plug. If Brady is an engine that propels the entire team, it can't be done with efficiency unless the engine has the right assets built into it.
Think of an offense where he can't be one of the two top priorities. An offense where the two priorities are guys who are keeping the ball relatively short.
This week, Pat has conversations with Patriots HOFer Kevin Faulk about his life in the game and how it's shaped his life after football. Kevin also gives a look into what makes Tom Brady so good. Pat then has a great discussion with Mike Giardi about the NFL playoffs and how the Patriots should do this weekend and beyond.
Patriot haters who were celebrating in the streets upon hearing of Brady's retirement are now in shock and probably heaving themselves off the nearest high rise as the news breaks in the same week.

Just know that Muhammed Sanu made his twitter private so he wouldn't have to get trashed on because of this.
Tom Brady timing this commercial in September was the biggest power move in the history of the world
