This year will be no different as defensive coordinator Matt Patricia and offensive coordinator Josh McDaniels are expected to become NFL head coaches.
Though his defense was torched by Nick Foles and the Eagles in Sunday’s 41-33 Super Bowl loss, Patricia will take over the Lions. McDaniels will become the Colts new coach.
When asked about his future during Super Bowl week, Brady just laughed it off and said he’ll play as long as he can.
“Why does everyone want me to retire so bad?” he said. “I don’t get it. I’m having fun. The team’s doing good. I know I’m a little bit older than most of the guys, but I’m really enjoying it. Obviously, I enjoy the experience of playing in this game. This has been obviously a dream come true many times over. It takes a lot of hard work to get here, and I think our team is working hard … We’re playing against a great football team. So I’m not thinking about retirement.
“I’ve always wanted to play to my mid-40s, so we’ll see,” he added. “Football is such a physical sport. Every game could be your last game, that’s the reality of the sport.”
In running well over 100 full game simulations in “Madden NFL 18,” it became clear that the video game engine believes the Eagles have a better chance at pulling off the upset than the general public does. Philadelphia was able to win 48 percent of the games and held its own against New England in many its defeats.
More surprising than the competitiveness of the matchup: The higher-scoring games favored the Eagles. Few would expect Nick Foles not only keep up with Tom Brady in a high-scoring game, but to best the New England QB. Games that went OVER (48.5 points) were won by Philly 59 percent of the time.
“Madden” is predicting Super Bowl 52 to be competitive either way. Of the Wholesale NFL Jerseys Supply simulations, 55 finished as one-score games. Two games even went into double overtime.
Brady took the most Super Bowl MVP awards during the Hockey Jerseys simulations, walking away with the honor 72 percent of the time the Patriots won. Dion Lewis and Rob Gronkowski won the majority of the remaining awards.
