LOOK: Tom Brady addresses his future following dramatic loss to Rams

The GOAT is pondering his future.

Tampa Bay Buccaneers quarterback Tom Brady nearly once again pulled off the absolutely improbable, authoring yet another incredible playoff comeback in the 4th quarter to tie the game late this afternoon against the Los Angeles Rams. 

However, it wasn't meant to be, as Matthew Stafford would lead his team on a game-winning drive down the field capped by a walk-off field goal. There will be a new Super Bowl champion this year, as the hopes for a Bucs repeat were dashed.

And almost immediately, speculation began to abound as to the future of the 44 year old legendary quarterback, who appeared to hint at retirement prior to this afternoon's matchup. 

"I felt like then that was a great goal to set and I still have that goal of wanting to get to (age) 45," Brady said. "We'll see how it goes. I think I'm pretty much in [uncharted] territory."

"I haven't put a lot of thought into it, so we'll just take it day by day and kind of see where we're at," Brady said. 

"Truthfully, guys, I'm thinking about this game and not thinking about anything past five minutes from now," he continued. 

Brady has one year remaining on his contract.
