If we win a SB or at least an AFC Championship in the next 2 years then I think he will play a few seasons after that. If we miss the playoffs the next couple of years or continue to have a low ranked offense that doesn't allow us to advance past the WC round, then I think he will just quit and spend a few extra years with his family.
this - the window wasn't as big as it was a 2-3 seasons ago, that is for sure
I remember seeing him standing on the podium after they won XLIII and thinking "This son of a bitch is gonna pass Bradshaw and get 5 rings"
Now, I'm just hoping for 1 more. I really don't see more than 4-5 seasons at this rate and unfortunately, I think we'll see 1-2 more 8-8, 9-7, or one and dones mixed in there. I'm hoping the FO realizes their chances of winning another 1 are getting smaller by the half season.
