In response to rameakap's comment:
Brady was getting better as a QB during the b2b SB's, was in his prime '06/'07, and has been in a slow decline since the knee injury, which also happened the season he turned 30, where most pro athlete's start a slow decline.
He is not, and it is silly to expect him to be, the guy he was age 25-29, but with the right pieces around him he can still win a SB in his mid-late 30's, there are 11 on the field and 50 who contribute, this isn't basketball with 5 and 12, a sport where the difference between a superstar aged 28 and an all-star aged 34 is often the diff between a title and a conf finals appearance.
Brady, between ages 24 n 28(5ssns) put up 18,000 yds, 123 tds and 66 INTs.
Brady between ages 29 n 34(5ssNs) put up 21,000 yds, 181 tds(75 in last 2 ssns) and only 46 INTs. He might be older, but on the decline? No.
Great post Champ. *itch slapping a hater with stats.
