When to Call It Quits

How long before Tom Brady begins to "suck" and considers retiring? 120 Sports hosts Laurence Holmes and Dylan McGorty weigh in on the future of the 15-year NFL veteran. "Brady's Week 1 said enough for me: two lost fumbles, 29 of 56, one touchdown," says McGorty. "I give him one more season after this year." But Holmes says, "What this guy did last year was a miracle. He took a bunch of no-name receivers and made them look fantastic. I don't see a warning indicator going off any time soon." For more of Holmes and McGorty's Point/Counterpoint and 24-hour access to video highlights and analysis, go to 120sports.com
