Bill Belichick: If anybody can play until 50, it's Tom Brady


Tom Brady's proclamation last week, suggesting he might play as a 50-year-old, got plenty of attention.

Considering what Brady is doing at 44 years old, it suddenly doesn't seem all that crazy. Even the pundit known for predicting the quarterback was at the edge of his career cliff at the age of 40 relented to the idea of such a feat.

Now a very notable voice has weighed in on the subject: Patriots head coach Bill Belichick.

Appearing on the Greg Hill Show Monday morning, Belichick was asked his thoughts on the idea of Brady playing into his 50's.

"I’m sure Tom would know better than anybody, so if anybody can do it it’s him," Belichick said.

The oldest quarterback ever to play in the NFL was George Blanda, who retired from the league at the age of 48.

Brady certainly hasn't slowed down, throwing five touchdowns Sunday in his Buccaneers' 48-25 win over the Falcons. In his two games so far this season, the Tampa Bay signal-caller has tossed for nine TDs and 655 yards while throwing just two interceptions.
