CLEVELAND, Ohio – Tom Brady has just won another Super Bowl after throwing three touchdowns, no interceptions, and a QBR of 81.8 against the Kansas City Chiefs. At the age of 43, Brady is showing no signs of slowing down or retiring.
So let’s take a five-year trip into the future and imagine that Baker Mayfield and the Browns have continued to improve under the guidance of Kevin Stefanski. Cleveland makes it to their first Super Bowl, says Super Bowl LVIII, and faces a 46-year-old Tom Brady who is aiming for his ninth Super Bowl win.
What seems more absurd? That the Browns will be in a Super Bowl or that Tom Brady will be back in the big game?
For my money, the Browns are more likely to hit a Super Bowl in the near future than Tom Brady will make it back before he retires.
