Football season is upon us, and New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady begins his 20th season with the club at the "young" age of 42.

Brady was the subject of the latest Courier Publications/VillageSoup sports poll, and 89.2 percent of voters believe the future hall-of-fame quarterback will end his career as a Patriot. Ten-point-eight percent are "moderately worried" Brady will "seek greener pastures with another team," as one of the options of the poll stated. There was not a single vote cast for "scared to death Tom will take his ball and head to another team."

The 6-foot-4 225-pound quarterback has amassed 70,514 passing yards in his career, with 517 touchdowns and 171 interceptions. Brady also has 1,003 rushing yards for his career.

In the newest sports poll the subject stays with the pigskin, as the sports staff asks: Which National Football League team do you believe will win the Super Bowl?
