After 22 years in the NFL, the greatest quarterback of all-time is officially calling it a career. Tom Brady has announced that he is retiring from football and NFL fans are experiencing all kinds of emotions.

After being selected in the sixth round of the 2000 NFL Draft, Brady has had a remarkable career. He will hang up his cleats with seven NFL records to his name and seven Super Bowl rings.

To put his career in perspective:

  • Seven-time Super Bowl champion
  • Five-time Super Bowl MVP
  • Three-time NFL MV
  • 15-time Pro Bowler
  • Six-time First-Team All Pro selection
  • NFL’s all-time passing touchdown leader (624)
  • NFL’s all-time passing yards leader (85,520)
  • The most career wins in NFL history (243)

With the news, NFL fans are all over the board. Some of them are sad to see the G.O.A.T. retire, others are glad to see him go so that their teams will not have to play him in the future, many had jokes, and then, of course, there are the irrationally angry who are lashing out against Brady for no reason.

Regardless of where on the spectrum they stand, everybody is coming together to honor the best quarterback in NFL history and congratulate him on a historic career.

It is truly the end of an era. What a ride for the greatest to ever do it.
