Tom Brady: ‘Why does everyone want me to retire so bad?’

Now 40 years old, it seems Tom Brady can't go anywhere without someone asking him about his eventual retirement.

That includes Super Bowl week in Minnesota, where the New England Patriots pivot was asked the question yet again despite leading the NFL in passing yards this season.

"Why does everyone want me to retire so bad? I don't get it, I'm having fun," Brady joked during his press availability on Wednesday. "I know I'm a little bit older than most of the other guys, but I'm really enjoying it."

The entire AFC would probably be very happy if Brady opted to retire, as the path to the Super Bowl for that conference has involved the Patriots and the legendary quarterback for a record seven straight seasons.

Unfortunately for those teams, Brady has continuously said he hopes to play into his mid-40s, which means he could stand in their way for another few seasons.
