Joe Montana has made a point to ponder on

“He’s hardly ever getting hit,” Montana said. “So, he could play until maybe 60, I don’t know.”

“The way it is with the rules, he just doesn’t take those big hits anymore,” Montana added. “Yeah, he gets hit on occasion, but it’s never one of those ‘300 pounds compressing you into the ground.’ They stopped that from being legal. They just don’t do that anymore.”

And by looking at his current form, it can be easily speculated that there is more coming in the near future. He himself believes that he can play at least till he’s 50. Tom Brady has squeezed another DECADE out of his career by focusing on his health and fitness with the likes of his personal trainer, Alex Guerrero.

Although, could it be possible for him to squeeze another decade out of his already prolonged career in the NFL just as Joe Montana believes it to be?
