Here's a story, of a man named Brady....

Here's a story, of a man named Brady....
I actually do like the guy as a player.  He has been to 9 Super Bowls and won 6 of them.

But, even outside him, in basically any sport, I really do hate seeing icons hang on too long. 

I hated seeing Montana go to the Chiefs. And even my favorite Washington WR Art Monk go to the Jets. 

I think John Elway got it right. Go out on top. 

Watching Brady yesterday was cringe worthy.

What do you mean by that?

I have the same attitude about movie series too. First one comes out, it is a smash, but then Hollywood gets stupid and tries to repeat it.

Brady, like him or not, has had a great career. Even with sports I am not into, like golf or NASCAR, or soccer, I can still recognize talent. 

Even with Star Wars, after the first original three, I thought they were pushing it, and never got into the rest of those that followed.

Brady in all honesty, is simply hanging on out of nostalgia.

I actually thought this was going to be another gun thread.

I know the name, but I don't watch the sport. Or any sports.

The Brady/Belichick era is over. Thankfully.

I am too. Not because I hate Brady, or the Pats, but Dynasties in any sport get old for fans of that sport that are not the fan of that team.

It would be like having one cable channel with only one show 24/7. You can even like the show, but nobody eats the same food day after day.

Sports fans love Dynasties when their team is on top, but in general, it gets old outside that city for all others.

I won't lie, back in the 80s when Washington was only 2nd to the 49rs, I loved our constant winning. But I can also see if you are not a Pats fan, it gets old for all the other team's fans.

I was very happy for the Chiefs last year. But if they go on to win the next 10 Super Bowls, that would get old.

Being a Washington fan, long ago, knowing the Eagles had never won a Super Bowl, I promised my friend from Philly that if they made the Super Bowl I would root for Philly, even though they are our rivals. Why? Because I like seeing new teams win. 

Two teams I will root for, if ever they do, if they were to make it to the big dance, would be the Lions and Browns. They never get any love.

Things fall apart.  I wish he hadn't talked Gronkowski into being part of it.

Maybe Brady and Belichick need to know how linked is their success.  If one can be a champ or at least get close without the other.  Brady, unlike Manning, waited too late to find out.  Pride and the fall are arm in arm for this go round.

Peyton Manning and the Colts were my guy/team.  I tried, briefly, to get interested in the Broncos when Peyton returned to football after his neck surgery.  I didn't last through the agonizing end to that debacle.  Peyton should have walked out when he was up and had the perfect reason to hang up his helmet and cleats.  

I also briefly tried to follow the Colts but that didn't take either.  Actually the end of the Peyton Manning era was pretty much the end of football watching for me.  There was a lot of team switching all across both leagues and guys retiring and I just didn't find the chemistry I enjoyed anywhere.

Husband is a Steelers fan but Big Ben is too iffy for me to care about though I did watch now and then just to see Troy Polamalu come flying in from who knows where to make awesome plays.  That's a guy who knew when it was time to walk away.

With the Brady/Belichick thing done and over I only have one team to hate...the Cowboys...but that's mostly because of Jerry Jones.
