T. Brady: "When I suck, I'll retire."
Love Tom. Nothing makes me prouder than the fact that my alma mater produced the best QB in the history of the NFL.

I'd expect from Tom Brady. I can't think of a single Michigan football player who more fully embodies the phrase "will to win".
Nobody can out-compete Tom Brady. Not humanly possible.
Tom Brady: Greatest Living American
So never retiring.
This is going to ruin the idea he runs for President. Unless he can juggle President and NFL QB. Which he probably can.
With leadership like his, Mt Rushmore better prepare for a 5th sculpture!
The Upton pics are simply amazing!!

If you like looking at Verlander's flaccid schlong, then yes, they're great.
I have only seen one, and it doesn't include him. Therefore, amazing!
Does any part of you think it wrong to view private pictures that were obtained through an egregious and felonious invasion of privacy?
We all knew exactly what those warlocks looked like already...haven't seen the pictures but I'm pretty sure I could pick em out of a lineup.
I think a lot of the pictures I view on the Internet are wrong.
A little. But I didn't search for them and I didn't share it- so it was unavoidable when the popped up in front of me on a message
I'm not going to act like I don't parouse some pretty shady parts of the internet, still, I've never had nude pics just pop up unsolicited. Either you're lying or you're still using internet explorer.
If you don't want naked pictures to show up anywhere, Don't take them! It's not that hard.
I agree with LordG that it was an invasion of privacy and wrong, but I feel I've really come up with a great solution. You're welcome, hot gorgeous people.
So I just discovered the person who thinks "super fabulous" means "shitty victim-blaming."
I noticed the mainstream media playing-up the "this is victim blaming" angle, and it appears that people are biting hard on this attempt to create that sentiment.
But really, just knowing what happens when data is transferred between internet endpoints, knowing that the NSA has access to all of our iDevice related data (as we've been informed), and being aware of all the massive network security breaches big data and finacial services companies have been experiencing, it is pretty stupid.
The proper metaphor is using a bargain bike lock from Walmart to lock your bicycle up on the sidewalk in New York City. Yeah, some thief stole your bike, you're the victim, and that's a shitty thing you didn't deserve, but you still should've known better. It's negligence.
The reason the mainstream media is playing-up the "this is victim blaming" angle is to play down the "using big technology products and big data services isn't secure" angle on behalf of their big technology and big data service advertisers (you know, where their revenue come from).
Enjoyed the read.
Your advertiser theory on why some people are upset at the victim blaming may hold some water, but really it is used so often whenever someone's privacy or agency is violated (including the stolen property analogy).
It is particularly common when someone is sexually assaulted when leaving a bar or at a party. For example: "Maybe you shouldn't have gotten drunk." or "Maybe you shouldn't have gone to a frat house. What did you expect?" and of course "If I walked around a bad neighborhood flashing my money, I should expect to be robbed!"
Maybe you don't think something similarly bad could happen to you, maybe you have trouble empathizing. I really don't think either are a good excuse to give out unsolicited and unhelpful advice.
for my admittedly snarky/trying to be funny comment re: what I thought was an obvious knock on cyber security. Sorry bloggers!
**I would like to add that I would never, ever blame any victim of a sexual assault. No victim contributes to their assault. I will stand by "just be careful of what you put in cyber space", which is how I initially should have worded it.
That's like telling someone whose house has been burglarized that if they didn't want it to happen they shouldn't own a tv and jewelry.
I don't think that's at all the same thing. And I guess it is a bit obnoxious of me to say don't do the naked pic thing, but that's one of the main things we teach our kids about internet and cell phone, right? There's sadly no privacy in the stuff we put into cyber space. I wish it was safe, but it's not. So buy a polaroid, If those still exist.
I don't like the idea of comparing a person to an object, but this is probably the first time I've heard this analogy defending the victim instead of blaming them for being victimized.
but apply it to more than just my collection of hot, gorgeous selfies. In order to defeat potential criminals that want to take my stuff I will no longer own stuff. Take that ne'er-do-wells!
only applies to naked pics. Also, if you don't own stuff, you will be naked and then all over the internet, thereby defeating my fabulous solution! wait, are you saying my fabulous solution is not so fabulous???!??
Yes I do think your solution speaks to an unheathy attitude towards privacy as well as personal possessions. To deleve deeper would most likely violate the sanctity of this here sports blog, so I hope we can leave it at that.
Come to think of it I don't know how this conversation started...I blame SamdrussBLUE.
I think it's more of my love/hate relationship toward cyberspace and all things technology.
and, edit, I do not translate well to print!
(written by someone who no body wants to see naked)
I feel like it's a total invasion of privacy, but I would be lying if I said that I didn't look at those pics. In this day and age, if you don't want stuff like that getting out, don't take the pics in the first place. That has nothing to with blaming the victim, it's just the reality of our society today. People on this board always crack me up with this supposed moral high ground. Also, I find it hilarious that these hollywood elitists can push every big government agenda, support NSA spying, but then throw a hissy fit when something like this happens.
So he's going to play until he's 60?
Ugh. Chris Chase.
I just noticed the linked article is his. I hated the inane drivel that guy spewed when he was with Yahoo.
Damn that's a much better plan than my wife's, who tells me she'll suck once she retires...
Should have gotten that in the prenup.
It rubs the lotion on its skin or else it gets the hose again.
composing that one, or just replaying the track while you copied down the words?
"Luke, I am your father", they just stay with you forever.
Only on your birthday.
Can you imagine the recruiting if Tom B. was on the coaching staff some day?
Featuring Mrs. Brady's Famous Churrascaria?
Good call. I heard somewhere Peyton Manning figured he could play until he was 42 or 43, which makes sense for a QB. Figure Tom has a couple more years if they can keep him healthy.
