New England Patriots: Can Tom Brady win another Super Bowl?
By Nick Ziegler
After losing in the Super Bowl, can New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady win another title before he retires?
Despite having a great season, the New England Patriots ultimately came up short of their goal to win the Super Bowl. Due to the success of New England over the last two decades, winning the Super Bowl has become the expectation.
Even though the Patriots came up short in the Super Bowl, they still had a great season, and also still have the greatest quarterback of all-time under center. Last season, Brady was able to win the MVP after a great regular season.
In 2017, Brady totaled 32 passing touchdowns, eight interceptions, and 4,577 passing yards. While the Patriots lost to the Eagles in the Super Bowl, it was not because of Tom Brady. Against the Eagles, Brady totaled 505 passing yards and three passing touchdowns.
Recently on FanCred, Mike Felger and former Patriots tight end Jermaine Wiggins discussed whether or not Tom Brady still had time to win another Super Bowl. Here’s what they had to say.
Despite being over 40-years-old, Brady is still playing like one of, if not the best quarterback in the NFL. While Brady is playing at a very high level, it is hard to predict when he is going to slow down.
Knowing this, the Patriots made some uncommon moves last season to trade for Brandin Cooks and then sign Stephon Gilmore to a massive contract. These certainly appeared like win now moves, and that could be due to the uncertainty surrounding Brady’s future.
Heading into the 2018 season, the Patriots will be entering as the top team in the AFC once again. So far this offseason, the Patriots have suffered some losses on the offensive side of the ball, but they were certainly able to improve their defensive line with some nice additions. Considering the defense was the main reason why they lost to the Eagles, improving that side of the ball will help them in 2018.

Even though father time will eventually come for Brady like he has with all other athletes, it does appear like he has a good chance to win another ring. Since Brady already has five Super Bowl rings, adding a sixth would only further cement him as the greatest quarterback of all-time.
