Brady admits his personal life affected him in 2016.
His Deflategate battle against the NFL reportedly ended when it did only because Brady had a more important battle with which to concern himself back home.
Brady was willing to give up that fight in the name of personal priorities. There’s no reason to believe they would not trump an unnecessarily long playing career, either. And we know very well how Gisele feels about the matter.
But Brady also witnessed the physical deterioration Manning experienced through his last couple of seasons.
“Football is such a physical sport, and every game could be your last game,” Brady told reporters this week. “It’s the reality of the sport, so I’d love to plan for those things. I try to work hard at the things I need to for my body to feel good week after week and year after year.
McVay led Los Angeles from a 4-12 season in 2016 to an 11-5 record in 2017. He was the favorite to be named the league’s best coach for a while. It helped him out that Gurley broke out with 2,093 yards from scrimmage which earned him the offensive player of the year award. Donald anchored the team’s defense tallying 11 sacks and five forced fumbles on the way to being named the league’s best defensive player.
As for the Saints, it was the first time since 1967 a team has swept the offensive and defensive rookie of the year awards. Lattimore was a first-round pick out of Ohio State while Kamara was taken in the third round out of Tennessee. Saints quarterback Drew Brees was also named the Clutch Performer of the Year.
The Super Bowl in 2018 seems relatively easy to predict if one goes by the odds. The Patriots opened as 5 1/2-point favorites over the Eagles in Super Bowl 52, set to be played Sunday in Minneapolis. So of course the majority of SN’s experts are picking New England to beat Philadelphia. But not all.
Super Bowl picks and predictions are the bottom lines during the two-week hype train that is Super Bowl analysis. The matchup will be dissected and previewed to no end. Will Tom Brady, Bill Belichick and the Patriots pad the numbers that make up their dynasty? Will the Eagles, with Nick Foles in position to become one of the most unlikely Super Bowl-winning quarterbacks in history, shock the world and win their first Super Bowl?
