Tennessee takes out the Pats. If this was Brady’s last game for New England, and he’s a free agent, his last pass was a pick-6.

That was a good day. Buffalo fans watched their team blow a pretty sizable 2nd half lead and the Pats are eliminated in a wild card game? It all made me feel pretty good....

Bold prediction time: If Kraft doesn't deliver a whole fleet of Brinks trucks to Brady's front door, the NY football Giants will.

Nah...can't see the Giants not moving forward with Daniel Jones from here. Brady isn't going anywhere that doesn't have a great OLine and Super Bowl potential and a questionable QB situation. Indy I would think checks all 3 of those boxes.

Yeah, he’s not going to the Giants. Who else besides Indy is bad QB play away from contending? Bears? Cousins still has 1 year left on his contract in Minnesota. Vegas? I think they can get out of Carr’s contract without too much pain. But would Brady want to play for a guy like Gruden?

*Bold* prediction, fellas. Be bold. Y'all are playing it too safe with your predictions
With Eli Manning coming off their cap, the Giants will have about $70 million of cap space. With the glaring problems they have elsewhere, and a GM stuck in the 70s mentality of building around the run, they’re not going to commit half their cap space to a 42 year old quarterback, with no mobility, to hand the ball off to Saquon Barkley. They’re not a QB away from contending and Brady won’t go someplace to be part of a rebuild.

You want bold? Tell Mrs. Ford to open the vault.

Well she's 94 so she better move fast. :)

BTW there 10 female NFL owners, some inherited the team like Ford and Paul Allen's sister who owns the Seahawks.

well she can't take the team with her. Might as well sell now or else her kids run the team or sell it.

BTW most of the female NFL owners are co-owners with their husband such as the Browns and Bills.

I just found out that Mrs. Ford is also a member of the Firestone family, so she had money from them too.

I'll repeat... the Lions will go *NOWHERE* and do *NOTHING* as long as the Fords are on top of the org chart. They have wasted the careers of so many great players it makes me cry.

Last Lions playoff win was in 1991 with former NCSU QB Erik Kramer as their starter. Kramer played at NCSU 85 to 86 he was ACC player of the year in 86.

Wait BOLD? Crazy BOLD? How about the Cowboys trade Dak to Indy for 2 1st round picks and then they sign Brady?

I will be interested to see what the market is for Brady. Surely he isn't going to command $30+M for a one year deal, is he? He will be 43 next year and didn't exactly look great playing in a system/situation that is his best-case scenario. He had a great OC in McDaniels, the greatest HC of all-time and should have been comfortable with everything else. If some team out there is drinking the cool-aid and thinks all Brady needed as a legit number 1 receiver and a bit more talent around them, that team may end up pretty disappointed.

It just takes one owner to make Brady a big deal. Jerry Jones is dumb but he won't go after Brady. Rivers is probably not going back to SD so that may be an option.

It sure looks like the end of the line is nearing for the current crop of great QBs. When is the last time one of these guys (Brady, Brees, Roethlisberger, E. Manning, or Rivers) wasn't playing past the wild card weekend? I think the tank is just about empty on this group and the next-gen is getting ready to take over.

Either Brady, Peyton Manning or Roethlisberger have represented the AFC in 16 of the last 18 Super Bowls, going back to SB XXXVI in 2002.

In his column this morning, Peter King adds the Chargers as a possible landing spot for Brady. They’re having trouble selling seat licenses for the new stadium in LA and could use a marquee name. But I don’t see them contending in that division, and I think that’s the most important thing to Brady; it would for be for me. He also thinks the Raiders are a dark horse.
