The Buffalo Bills haven’t gone to the playoffs since the 1999, which ended in the Music City Miracle. The team has some talent, but they are still going to be a long shot to make the playoffs.
The simple reason is their division rival New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady.
Brady’s rookie year was in 2000, which also happens to be the first season of the drought. It’s not a coincidence that the Bills haven’t made the playoffs since then. There is one problem this year for Bills fans.
That is Brady isn’t slowing down at 39-years-old.
Most quarterbacks by now are beat up, suffered numerous injuries and are tired of the daily NFL grind. However, that isn’t Brady as he is planning to play a lot longer.
“I’d like to play until my mid-forties,” Brady told Peter King of Sports Illustrated in an interview. “Then I’ll make a decision. If I’m still feeling like I’m feeling today, who knows? Now those things can always change. You do need long-term goals too. I know next year is not going to be my last year.”
Until Brady retires or his performance drops dramatically; the playoffs most likely will be a pipe dream for Bills fans.
