Tom Brady and the New England Patriots have made an explosive start to the 2015 NFL season.
The Patriots are currently unbeaten through their first five games of the new campaign and sit comfortably at the top of the AFC East. Brady has been in majestic form to open up the new season, presumably riding a wave of revenge after the National Football League tried to suspend him for four games, for his role in the DeflateGate saga.
Brady has put in such exceptional performances that you forget he is 38-years-old. And it seems like age is no limit for the future Hall of Famer, who wants to play for another decade.

10 More Years
Brady was speaking to the New York media on Wednesday, ahead of the Patriots game against the Jets, and the quarterback said he would like to keep playing for a while still, going up to ten years.
“I’d like to play a long time, yeah, a long time,” Brady said. “There’s a lot that goes into playing well. I’ve played with a lot of great teammates. But I want to play for a long time, maybe 10 more years. I think that’s probably what my goal is.”
Still Loving Football
Brady might actually be serious. He followed up his original comment by relaying that he still loves the game of football and wants to keep on winning.
“That’s what my goals are, so that’s just what I’m hoping. And it will take a lot to achieve that. Obviously a team has to want you, but I think that’s . . . you know, I love playing this sport. I love making a commitment to my teammates and my coaches, and hopefully I can do it for a long time."
Father Time will eventually beat Brady, but the Patriots star has put up a much better fight against it than Peyton Manning has, for instance. Manning is just a year older than Brady, but the Broncos QB is struggling massively so far this season and probably should retire at the end of the year.
Father Time is unbeaten, but Tom Brady is giving him a run for his money and is willing to duke it out for potentially another decade.
