A little perspective

Borrowed this one from math class…

In the first 17 full years in the NFL, Tom Brady has won five Super Bowls. That’s nearly 30 percent of his seasons ending with a championship.

For a little comparison, in his 15-year NBA career, Michael Jordan won six championships. That’s 40 percent. That’s even better, no? (And we’re not even going to look at DiMaggio or Bill Russell or anyone from that era.)

So if Brady wins another Super Bowl this year that’ll give him six in 18 years. One-third of his seasons. If he wins the next year–and the year after that–he’ll have the same percentage as Jordan.

By then he’ll be about 57 years old, but it is something to shoot for.
