5 players to start in Patriots vs Texans


Even though he knows it will be a challenge, Brady said he wants to play at least five more years.

Despite this being the case, Ian Rapoport of The NFL Network is reporting that the Patriots are now not considering hammering out an extension with Brady at this point given that there is no clear picture to how much longer he will play, via Tyler Sullivan 247 Sports. Tom Brady is in tip-top shape at age 41 and coming off the best Super Bowl performance of his career, but his supporting cast for Opening Day leaves a lot to be desired. "I would love to play five more years", Brady said in the video.

A three-time victor of the NFL Defensive Player of the Year award, Watt returns to action after being limited to just eight appearances over the past two seasons by back and leg injuries. It's (bleeping) going to be hard to do.

Five more years would take him to the season in which he turns 45 during training camp, one season short of the one in which he'd report for camp at 45 and turn 46 in early August - if there was any ambiguity regarding the precise limit of playing until 45. But ours is just to the tenth degree. "I love the sport and I've been doing it for a long time so I'm not sure what life would be like without it".

It's a valiant effort by these kids, but like he's done 76 times before in his career, J.J. Watt sacks them and totally takes over the interview.

"If I'm going to do something at this point, it's going to be because I enjoy it", said Brady. "I think everybody is, not just myself".

"So I don't think there was ever going to be a stage too big for him, and that's what we've seen".

"All I do is focus on controlling what I can control and what I can control is today, my meetings, my practice today, trying to be the best I can be today".

"Once you stop, you're done. I've learned that peoples' opinion doesn't really matter".

"But to worry about a lot of bulls-t that people may say or think or feel, like, I really don't care anymore".

"My goal is to make more plays than I did past year ... improving my sacks and tackles for loss and everything", he said. But he did seem to indicate that he knows full well that the Patriots' version of the play would've worked had he, you know, caught the pass. I just don't give a [expletive] anymore about anything. I expect Wide Receiver Chris Hogan to have a big game, while he works off of the attention Gronk draws.

"I really want to focus on football, not hot topics, and my reaction to a lot of hot topics and so forth", he said.

This final episode also explored what Brady said is a new approach to certain aspects of National Football League life, which includes ignoring the opinions people have of him. "Why not finish it off?"
