With less than two months until Brady turns 41, Father Time has to be catching up to the Patriots quarterback. But he remains at the top of his game, remarkable considering he just finished his 18th season.
As proof, Brady’s body of work in 2017 was good enough to secure his third MVP award, and his first since 2010. While Brady’s 2007 season stands out as a seminal year not just for him, but perhaps for the quarterback position historically, Brady’s numbers last season actually compared favorably to 2010.
He had a higher completion percentage and more passing yards last season, though in 2010 he was more efficient with a higher passer rating, more interceptions and fewer touchdowns. Brady also took his team to the Super Bowl last season, something he didn’t do in 2010. At some point, his production will dip. It’s fair to wonder if that time might come before November. Just don’t count on it.
