On top of his incredible physical abilities, Tom Brady has mastered the mental side of the game.
Brady can foresee how events will transpire on the field before they actually happen. He always knows the perfect play depending on the look the opposing defense gives him. And, he instinctively knows where to throw the pigskin depending on the opposition's coverage.
Considering his wealth of football knowledge, intensity, and tutelage under Bill Belichick, Tom Brady appears to have the perfect intangibles for coaching. But, according to Tom, it won't happen.
Even though Brady continues to perform at an elite level, his career is beginning to wind down. At age 39, Tom can see the light at the end of the tunnel for what's been an extraordinary career. But, when he looks at life after football, coaching isn't on his radar.
From NESN's Zack Cox:
Q: Do you think you want to coach some day? You sound a lot like Bill Belichick on these conference calls.
TB: Coaching wouldn't be for me. No, certainly not. I like playing. I wouldn't be a good coach. I don't have the patience to be a coach.
In three games since his suspension, Brady has dominated with a 75.2 completion percentage, 1,004 yards, eight touchdowns, and no interceptions. Even if coaching was a future consideration for him, Brady has plenty of playing (at a very high level) left to do.
