Tom Brady Announces Unretirement


Gavin Postlewaite

Tom Brady was the 199th pick in the 2000 NFL draft. He has played 22 years in the NFL; playing 20 years for the Patriots and 2 years for the Buccaneers. Just a few months ago he announced his retirement. Here’s some of his memorable stats from the thought to be ended days of his career.

Brady ranks first all-time in numerous categories. He has an overall record of 243 wins and 73 losses, he’s been to 15 pro bowls, has 5 Super Bowl MVP Awards, he’s started 316 games, completed 7, 263 out of 11 317 passes or 64.2%, threw for 84, 520 passing yards, and 624 touchdowns. Another interesting stat is that he’s been in 101 games where his team has won by three touchdowns, and 39 games where his team has won by four touchdowns. In the post season he leads in appearances with 19, 47 games started, 35 wins, 10 Super Bowl appearances, 7 Super Bowl wins, 1,165 completions, 13,049 passing yards, 86 passing touchdowns, 12 game-winning drives, and 9 fourth-quarter comebacks. Some say he has stats from three different time periods in his career that would get him into the NFL Hall of Fame.

In an Instagram post 1 day ago he said, “I’m coming back for my 23rd season in Tampa. We have unfinished business.” I’m not sure what unfinished business there could be left after a stat line like that, but I think there’s an angry G.O.A.T. on the loose now.
