It’s safe to say there will be some surprise Pro Bowl nominees on this year’s ballot. Something not very surprising: Tom Brady has been revealed amongst the first five official 2021-2022 Pro Bowlers. In light of Tom Brady’s many accolades, his leadership, presence, and drive has gained him another first. Brady is now the first NFL player to be named to 15 Pro Bowls.

Talks of when the seven-time super bowl champion will retire have circulated for years now. Yet, season by season, Brady finds a way to up the ante and curve career declines. The 44-year-old quarterback currently leads the NFL with 404 completions, 4,348 passing yards and 36 touchdowns. Those statistics are hard to ignore, especially when Brady is also on track to close out the 2021-2022 season with 5,000-yards for the second time in his career.

These are not the only statistics that make Tom Brady a Pro Bowler. In addition to his 2021 production, Brady has broken a number of records. The former 199th pick in the 2000 draft surpassed Peyton Manning to become the NFL’s all-time leader in regular-season touchdown passes and passing yards. He also topped Drew Brees for the all-time NFL completion record, as well as the most regular-season (240) and postseason (34) victories out of any quarterbacks in the league. Finally, Brady is the first player to make 300 career starts.

After beating the Bills last Sunday and adding a 700th touchdown pass to his trophy room, Brady’s collection of broken records is overflowing. When asked about it, head coach Bruce Arians laughed.

“When Tom’s done, there won’t be any more records to break,” Arians said.

Does Chris Godwin’s chance of being in the Probowl get nixed because of his status on IR?

Godwin still has a shot since the voting ended on Sunday, however Cooper Kupp was one of the 5 revealed along with Brady.

Loved the player coming out of Wisconsin, but he didn’t do the Colts any good a couple of weeks ago. Interesting that after a loss, you make an appearance. Seems to me you were critical of Brady coming here and hoisting the trophy. Maybe Taylor can pose with Tom at the Pro Bowl.

For a minute I thought the headline said, “Bucs QB Brady breaks another Surface.”

Wait, how many Surfaces have been broken by one player in one game? Does Tom hold that record too?!

All jokes aside, thankfully the Bucs have Carolina twice in the next 3.
