Despite continuing to play at an age that no other quarterback has ever played in the NFL, the productivity of what for many is the G.O.A.T. instead of decreasing is on the rise, in the 2021 campaign he led the entire NFL in air yards with 5,316, in pass completions with 485, passes attempted with 719 and touchdown throws with 43.

The part that is simply amazing for someone who seems to have the access to the eternal fountain of youth, is that the aforementioned 5,316 yards is his personal high, he surpassed the 5,235 he got 10 years ago, in the 2011 campaign.

But this is not the end for TB12, after the loss in the Divisional Round against the eventual champions Los Angeles Rams on January 23, 2022, Brady took some time and on February 1 announced his retirement after some media speculations in previous days.

This past week, another change came to Brady's team, as head coach Bruce Arians announced his sudden retirement and that his position has been taken by defensive coordinator Todd Bowles, a move that according to reports, Brady knew at the time of his return, so he is happy with the change of helm on the Buccaneer ship.
