Hall of Famer Kurt Warner Thinks it Might Be Time for Tom Brady and Aaron Rodgers to Retire

Kurt Warner knows exactly what Tom Brady and Aaron Rodgers are going through.

It’s been a very trying season for NFL living legends Aaron Rodgers and Tom Brady. Seven games into this season Rodgers has the lowest QB rating he’s had since 2015. Brady is at his lowest mark since 2013. Their teams, both of which were expected to contend for a championship this year are a combined 6-8, and currently out of playoff contention. Are Brady and Rodgers finally on the decline, after years of seemingly getting the best of Father Time?

Kurt Warner shared some insights.

“I think both of those guys look like they’re exhausted,” Warner told People this week. “It’s okay to go, ‘You know what? It’s not how it used to be. I may not be who I used to be, or, it’s just too hard overall to get everybody up to the standard. Maybe it is time to walk away.’”

Kurt Warner added, “It’s not being defeated. That’s not saying you can’t do it anymore. I just think sometimes that stuff outweighs the joy of the game, which is what it looks like is happening for those two guys and I feel for them.”

He claims he is speaking from experience. After going 10-5 with the Cardinals and passing for 3,753 yards at the age of 38, he decided it was time to call it a career even though he probably still could have put up good numbers.

“It started to take more and more away from my family and my time, and again, me physically to be able to give them the time and effort that I wanted, because my mind was always on other things,” Warner said, adding, “I mean, I kinda look at Tom Brady now, and that’s how I feel.’”

I for one don’t want to see these two guys leave, they bring in way too much content for the world to enjoy.
