Tom Brady strikes fear into hearts of fans with minicamp tweet

New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady will be a spry 42 years of age at the start of the 2019 NFL season this September. 

Talk of his retirement has been constant over the past several years, though Brady himself has said he wants to play until he’s 45 — or, more candidly, until he starts to suck

However, a tweet sent by the quarterback from Patriots minicamp on Tuesday that seemed to reference an impending retirement decision sent fans spiraling.

Kurt Warner names his top 5 quarterbacks of 2019

Kurt Warner knows a thing or two about successful NFL quarterbacks, but his list of the top 5 signal-callers heading into the 2019 season may surprise you.

The Pro Football Hall of Famer’s list includes two quarterbacks who didn’t make the postseason in 2018 and three who did. Several of last season’s stars, including rookie Baker Mayfield and the resurging Andrew Luck, didn’t quite make the cut, nor did Super Bowl LIII contender Jared Goff.

Tom Brady, approaching his 42nd birthday, was, of course, still atop the ranking. Quarterbacks who are often compared to him, however, like Aaron Rodgers and Ben Roethlisberger, found themselves farther down.

Met Gala 2019: Athletes and sports personalities hit the red carpet

Tom Brady and wife Gisele Bündchen are staples at the annual Met Gala, but the New England Patriots quarterback wasn’t the only superstar athlete to get dressed to the nines for the evening. 

While none of the athletes were dressed up as literal chandeliers or entered on an ancient Egyptian bed carried by shirtless pharaohs, they still managed to pull off some show-stopping ensembles. 

All eyes were of course on Brady and Bündchen who donned complementing maroon and pink designer outfits. Brady was also smartly accessorized, sporting Swiss watch manufacturer IWC Schaffhausen’s Portugieser Perpetual Calendar Edition “150 Years” timepiece on his wrist. 

Super Bowl LIII MVP and Patriots wide receiver Julian Edelman made an appearance alongside his teammate and was also seen hamming it up with Cleveland Browns receiver Odell Beckham Jr., who showed up in a black cap, bow tie and kilt

Latest NFL mock draft has New England drafting Tom Brady’s possible replacement

The 2019 NFL draft is fast approaching. With names like Kyler Murray, Nick Bosa and Josh Allen available, it seems likely we already know how the first few selections of the first round will go on April 25. 

But what about the rest of the picks?

A top-heavy draft class doesn’t mean some diamonds in the rough won’t be found further down in the draft. New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady, selected No. 199 overall in the sixth round of the 2000 NFL draft, is evidence of that — and this year, the Patriots may draft his heir apparent.

Packers star Clay Matthews hopes controversial calls in playoffs will spur change

As fans of the New Orleans Saints know all too well, one flag – or a flag not thrown – can completely alter the course of a season.

By now everyone has seen or heard about the blown call during the NFC championship game between those Saints and the Super Bowl-bound Los Angeles Rams. The NFL has admitted that the refs made a mistake and subsequently fined Rams defender Nickell Robey-Coleman for targeting on the play.

However, no amount of apologizing can halt what has already begun – a demand for the NFL to change the rules surrounding pass interference. And unfortunately for the league, that wasn’t the only questionable rule or play that the masses took notice of during championship weekend.

During the AFC championship game, Kansas City Chiefs defensive end Chris Jones was penalized for roughing the passer after grazing the face mask of New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady. The Patriots were able to continue the drive and score a touchdown.

The call looked all too familiar to Clay Matthews of the Green Bay Packers.

Tom Brady listed as underdog for first time since 2015

That ends a streak of 67 starts, 174 weeks and 1,278 days as the betting favorite for Brady.
