Only superhuman freaks who spend millions of dollars annually on "taking care of their bodies" can perform at an elite level for as long as Tom Brady has. The odds are not in anybody's favor of them matching or topping Brady.

Not a chance.

Dunno, Mahomes seems to have the "superhuman" part down.  He's apparently got the off season commitment some others are missing.  And he's certainly going to have the money... Not saying it's a sure thing , but if anyone's going to do it, it's him.

If he can effectively unload the ball in two seconds and routinely keep a clean uniform then maybe. Father time isn't kind to anyone, particularly those who might hold onto the ball for a smidge longer than that.

If he can avoid getting hit or sacked, along with getting rid of the ball quickly while not scrambling too often, then maybe. That would require a healthy offensive line that can maintain the pocket without collapsing and a lot of other things on his part for that to work.

And even if that happens, sh*t happens. You can avoid the big hits, but need ACL repair due to tripping on the carpet.

Make healthy, disciplined choices with your lifestyle.  Every single day.  Every single decision.  Be obsessed to the point you're equal parts extremely boring and extremely psychotic.
/And play for a coaching staff that values your protection.

I believe Mahomes had a patellar dislocation (kneecap), and once you have that injury, recurrence becomes more and more likely.  The recurrence rate following a first-time dislocation is anywhere from 15-60%.  Big spread, I know.  However, if it happens again, well, that will shorten any NFL career.

Is it too early to ask if Josh Allen can play for another two decades?
No

What a ridiculous question. It makes much more sense to ask "is some unborn child who we haven't yet identified going to be able to play into his seventh decade, using a combination of performance enhancing drugs, nano-technology backed artificial limbs and an artificial brain?

I forgot about that. Hell, he'll have arthritis by Brady's age

I came to make a similar comment about Allen. I absolutely love watching the dude play, but if he doesn't start giving a shiat about his body, he's not gonna last half as long. He's a big dude, but linebackers are bigger.

he will definitely fark himself over. at least stationary big ben knew his limits. josh does not understand the long-term. he just doesnt comprehend the future. or, perhaps he understands his shelf life and is simply trying to get a ring as fast as he can. either way, its a losing scenario.

but check back with me in february...
