Tom Brady Gets Sentimental About Next Generation of Quarterbacks
For the first time this millennium, the NFL will have a season without Tom Brady in 2023. The future Hall of Famer retired after 23 seasons earlier this month, marking the end of an era in the NFL.
With Brady no longer around to torment opponents and win Super Bowls, the league's attention can now shift to the younger generation of quarterbacks currently taking over the sport. That includes Patrick Mahomes, Joe Burrow, Josh Allen, Jalen Hurts, Lamar Jackson and others.
For his part, Brady is excited to see what they can accomplish and wishes them long, successful careers.

With Brady and his seven Super Bowl rings out of the way, there should be more championships to go around for those guys. Five different teams have won Super Bowls in the last six seasons, with Mahomes' Kansas City Chiefs being the only repeat champions during that time.
The three-time MVP is also correct that it's the players who make the game special and worth watching every Sunday. With their dazzling arrays of throws and runs, this new wave of signal-callers is arguably the most exciting in the history of the sport.
It's a great time to be an NFL fan, and Brady realizes that. Especially now that he gets to be a fan himself.
