More From The Tom Brady Email Dump: Taking Shots At Peyton Manning’s Longevity
The NFLPA released a whole bunch of Tom Brady's emails as part of his Deflategate lawsuit, as you know, and they're still be sifted for signs of treasure. No great revelations in there so far, the only thing of real interest being the Great Pool Cover Controversy: Brady balked over having to pay $8,500 for a new pool cover, then threw a fit when he couldn't get his preferred color.
Now this emerges, via Boston.com's Henry McKenna. One of Brady's high school friends sent him a link to a Grantland article that compared Brady's performance to that of Peyton Manning. It it, Bill Simmons wrote that Manning's stats in the last few years appear to be good partly because of rule changes.
Yes, Brady, who is only one year younger than Manning (38), predicts his career will last five or six years longer. (Kevin Brady, by the way, is mo relation to Tom Brady).
Another email from a blogger (apparently from Michigan) who also mentioned Manning. Brady could have replied "Whoa! Manning is great too." But didn't.
If indeed Brady plays seven more seasons, he's be 44 years old. Only three QBs' have started an NFL at age 44, most recently Vinny Testaverde for the Panthers in 2007.
