Despite Struggles, Tom Brady Reiterates Plan to Play in 2019

Tom Brady
Pittsburgh Steelers now have no room for error to ensure return to playoffs

31 December, 2018

New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady seems to be asked every season if he will return for the next, and the veteran signal caller is already making plans for the 2019 season.

Some have speculated that another championship run for Brady would tempt him to hang up his cleats, but the five-time Super Bowl victor said he's lost none of his fire to compete.

"I absolutely believe I will", Brady said on Wednesday in his weekly interview on Westwood One.

"I think you're just being a competitor", Hogan said per Phil Perry of NBC Boston. "I know I've talked about it for a long time; I have goals to not only play next year, but beyond that. And I'm going to try to do it as best as I possibly can". I'm going to give it everything I have, like I always have. "I don't take any of these things for granted, but I hope I can keep playing".

Championship level is definitely not how you would describe his recent performances, especially in recent weeks. The Ravens need the Pittsburgh Steelers to lose at least one of their final two games, which is certainly possible - Pittsburgh has to visit the New Orleans Saints in Week 16. Led by a dominant running game this past weekend, the Patriots beat the Bills by a final score of 24-12. This year, he's seen a slight dip in his numbers, throwing for 4,105 yards with 25 touchdowns and 11 interceptions.

Yankees 'enamoured' with Machado
Last year, the Yankees went out and signed superstar outfielder Giancarlo Stanton to a massive contract. According to a new report from Jon Heyman of FanCred , the Yankees are very much in play for Machado.

The Patriots play the New York Jets next weekend in what will be the last game of the regular season.

"I've been able to be in a career for 19 years that I love". Plus, Julian Edelman and Rob Gronkowski look downright old. Now it looks as if the Patriots quarterback isn't going to hang it up after what has become a somewhat hard 2018 season.

Sorry, other National Football League teams, it doesn't look like Brady is going anywhere anytime soon.

Brady has long expressed his desire to play into his mid-to-late-40s and, at this point, why would anyone doubt him?
