Another Classic Brady-ism
Tom Brady is less than a year younger than Peyton Manning, but he continues to play in the NFL, while his counterpart called it quits a few years ago.
Manning did, however, go out on top — with a Super Bowl win — while Brady has clearly slowed down, and, at times this season, looked completely lifeless in the pocket. One is left to wonder if Brady wouldn’t be better off hitting the greens or gaming on Tuanpoker Situs Poker Online Terpercaya at home with Gisele The Titans’ pass rush was able to generate pressure in the interior of the Patriots’ offensive line in the AFC Wild Card game, and it really had a major impact on Brady’s effectiveness.
As such, Brady could possibly end up playing elsewhere in 2020, although that remains to be seen. As for Manning, he’s been tearing it up on the golf course. The former quarterback has been balling out at the AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am, where he’s hit some ridiculous shots. One of them was a ridiculous approach that landed near the green, and rolled just a few feet from the hole, which prompted a podcast to say that Brady would’ve made it, in jest.
TB12 had this funny zinger in reply to it.
Not true. Peyton is the better golfer right now. He’s had much more practice these past few years. https://t.co/etoGOmd0c0

Is Cam Coming Back?
This particular offseason figures to bring more change for the Carolina Panthers than they’ve ever undergone since entering the league in 1995.
Out is longtime head coach Ron Rivera, as well as a number of his assistants. All-Pro linebacker Luke Kuechly has retired, and it will be extremely tough to replace them.
And, most importantly, the team’s future at the quarterback position remains unclear. Cam Newton missed the entire 2019 regular season, dealing with a foot injury, and given the shoulder injuries he’s suffered over the years, the team could look to trade him.
The tea leaves are starting to point in that direction, as is the language from general manager Marty Hurney, who sure didn’t make a commitment to Newton when asked about his future.
“He’s rehabbing, that’s all I can say,” Hurney said, via the Associated Press.
Expect Newton to play for a team like the Bears or Bucs next season — Chicago looks like a great fit for him.
What now Cowboys?
Jason Garrett is no longer the head coach of the Dallas Cowboys, and, as a result, one of the team’s longtime veteran players wants to return.
Wide receiver Dez Bryant was drafted by the team, and played in Dallas from 2010-17. He has never played in a game for any other team, and has been rehabbing from the Achilles injury he suffered practicing with the Saints in 2018.
Bryant is still only 31 years old, so he might still have enough left in the tank to be effective in the red zone and on short-yardage situations — an area the Cowboys have struggled in. And he wants to return to big D, according to VP Stephen Jones.
“He has texted me that he would like to come back,” Jones said, according to Clarence Hill of the Forth Worth Star-Telegram). “We have nothing but great respect for Dez and what he accomplished here. Certainly, as we look forward into the future we look at all opportunities and all potential players that could maybe help us out.”
We wouldn’t rule it out. Crazier things have happened.
