    I would agree with that. Any freak injury would have ended his career, so maybe luck has been on his side.
    I checked his injuries during his career
    no concussions
    his blind side was well protected
    his linemen were well paid

    Brady is already a living legend with nothing to prove.

    He just loves the game! I like the way he watches his diet and works out daily.

    I remember years ago someone saying he was just lucky, well his luck has stuck with him for a very long time!

    There's no question that when an athlete takes care of his/her body with continuous exercise, that their chances for a long career increase. Look at Jerry Rice, a great example of an athlete working out year round throughout his career.

    Yet..... some luck is likely, due to freak injuries beyond anyone's control, especially in sports that demand consistent physical contact.

    I agree an athlete looking after their body is very important, as is watching what he/she puts in it.

    In Brady's case he does work hard at it, some luck is involved of course, but one could say we make our own luck. He also has had some exceptional people protecting him who sometimes go unnoticed. I don't believe he gets sacked a lot, although I don't watch every game.

    Apparently he is sacked much less than the average quarter back.

    Duh........Then why are the other high paid linemen not doing the same job for their QB? 🙂 😛 I think it is because Brady is also much smarter than the other QB'S! 😉

    brady does not move out of the pocket and so is easier to protect and you are right about him being smart
    he has learned over the years not to take a hit

    The Superbowl commercial with Brady and Gronk was really good.

    They played together on another team. I think Brady asked to have him they combined for 2 TD's I believe it was in the Championship game!

    Gronk is some hard to take down also, get himself in position and Brady finds him.
