          I saw a headline before this announcement that it was down to the Patriots & the Bucs. Why the hell would he leave NE for Tampa? I guess he could retire but that sounds unlikely.

            @RapSheet: The #Bucs made a strong offer to QB Tom Brady believed to be $30M or more. The #Chargers did, as well. And now, he’s leaving New England.

                Those would be my guesses. Money at the top of the list, fit at the bottom.

                    Wow, what great timing. The New England area is freaking out from the Coronavirus, with like over 100 cases in Boston because some brilliant doctor who was already infected went to a medical conference there and infected a bunch of other doctors, of all people.

                    Then a report came out yesterday that Boston's particular geographical longitude may make it more susceptible to easy transmission of the virus, for some climate-related reason.

                    Then their ultimate sports hero announces he's going to leave them, today on St. Patrick's Day of all days, which in case anyone didn't know is a particularly beloved holiday in the Boston area.

                    Kids in that area, or adults for that matter, who grew up idolizing Tom Brady will now forevermore feel a twinge of sadness when St. Patty's Day arrives.

                    Reminds me of how my grandfather on my Mom's side inconsiderately chose to unexpectedly of a heart attack on my parent's wedding anniversary. Kind of messed that occasion up for my Mom from then on.

                    Do you think he chose to make the announcement today just to twist the knife in a little bit? Seems to me he could've just as easily done it yesterday, or tomorrow. Seriously, St. Patrick's Day is a really big deal in Boston.

                      He played two years. First year he got them to the AFC championship where he suffered a concussion. They won their first division championship (either ever or in forever).

                      Second year he got down to the playoffs again.

                      And then he retired.

                        OK? He got a concussion and made it to the playoffs.

                        The dude wants to play a couple more, and I don’t blame him. Cutthroat Belichick made sure that was going to be somewhere else.

                        I do not wish him success wherever he goes. No matter what his issues may have been with Belichick or Kraft, out of loyalty to the fanbase that has passionately supported him for 20(!) seasons he should've sucked it up and finished his career there.

                        It's not like he's Dan Marino, who played all those years for my Dolphins without a championship. If Dan the Man had been in better condition at the end of his career and left to play one more year for a team that was a legit contender so he could have a shot at a ring, I would not have begrudged him that.

                        But Brady has six rings, and more money than he could ever possibly spend. Not to mention that his wife's independent net worth is as much as his, if not more. So what is he chasing at this point, by going somewhere else?

                        I do not think this decision is going to end well for him, as it shouldn't IMO. I hope to see him regret it.
