BOSTON (CBS) – Tom Brady, as you surely know, 44 years old, still playing at MVP level, desperately wants to win another Super Bowl, has no desire to stop playing football.

So it’s fascinating to consider a reflection from Brady that he shares in the upcoming episode of his documentary series, “Man In The Arena.”

The fourth installment of the series delves into the 2007 season of the Patriots. That year, apparently, the Patriots made NFL history by winning 16-0 in the regular season but were unable to complete the season unbeaten by losing to the Giants in Super Bowl XLII.

Although the volume of the series won’t come out until next week, NESN’s Zack Cox got an early look at the episode, and he shared a catchy quote from Brady that creates an alternate universe where football history is completely rewritten.

Here’s what Brady said:

“Whether we won that match or not, I don’t know, I’m not a big hypothetical person, but maybe the desire is a little bit different, if you’re looking at a silver plate. Maybe it’s desirable to get to that point, maybe I’ve been done – not stopping the game at that point, but I don’t know. Maybe I’ll play for another seven or eight years, and maybe I’m satisfied. Maybe not.”

That is really something to think about.

While it’s hard to imagine Brady feeling extremely satisfied with his achievement and happily leaving the game in his late 30s, there’s a lot to be said for reaching the top of the mountain. And certainly, with the score 19-0, the author of the greatest season when, something can never be matched? That will be the top of the mountain.

And at the time, Brady must have been a perfect 4 in the Super Bowls, rivaling his childhood idol, Joe Montana. At the age of 30, Brady will have accomplished all that has to be achieved.

While we don’t know what would happen to Brady if the Patriots won that Super Bowl, we do know what really happened after he didn’t. His knee was ripped off in Week 1 of the 2008 season, killing his chance to avenge that ’07 pain. Team ’09 didn’t play very well. Team ’10 is one of the more regular-season teams than ever… but lost its only playoff game to the Jets. In ’11, another Super Bowl loss to the Giants – a game that looked like that Perhaps it last shot for Brady, 34 years old. Consecutive defeats at the AFC Championship in ’12 and ’13 matches made that fate seem inevitable.

But then, apparently, Brady and the Patriots won in 2014, won again in 2016 and won again in 2018. Not happy with it. six Winning the Super Bowl, Brady moved his life to Florida and took 7th place last year. Now he is looking for 8th place.

Given what we know has actually happened, it’s almost impossible to imagine a world where Brady loses the championship. Sure, when Peyton Manning breaks Brady’s touchdown record in 2013, or when Patrick Mahomes enters the fight and is immediately ranked among the all-time greats, Brady will be sucked back into the fight. But according to the man himself, it is possible that achieving the unattainable in February 2008 may have dented that ambition in later years.

That To be Feasibility. Or… maybe Brady – the world’s most relentless psycho-competitor – is still trying to figure out how to make himself feel better after losing that match. Feels like a possibility there.
