Tom Brady: Greatest Of All Time

Postby Deja Entendu » Mon Feb 06, 2017 12:56 am

This "debate" will get lost in the multiple Super Bowl related threads, so I wanted a place for this to be discussed specifically.

Personally, I think Brady himself put this conversation to bed tonight, but apparently he still has detractors. Here's the forum...

3 words: Watch him play. No one ever did it better. This "debate" was over for me 10 years ago.

Sucks that the GOAT is a villain... but alas, it is so.

Tom Brady is the best QB to ever play the game.

The only debate left is who is the goat player, Brady or Rice?

LOL. Unlike "Global Scaremongering Warming" this actually is settled science. Brady is the greatest of all time. Don't be a Science Denier.

Definitely the greatest ever. Comparable to watching other greats: Jordan, Tiger, Mike Phelps, etc.

That being said, I'll be happy when Brady, Eli, Big Ben and Brees retire.

It would be a hard argument to say that he isn't the greatest quarterback ever.

I mean, what more would a guy have to do as a quarterback to cement his GOAT status that Brady already hasn't?

While I give him the GOAT quarterback title, I still maintain that Jerry Rice is the greatest football player ever, but that's just personal preference.

I denied it for a long time because I don't really like him (but loved Montana.)

But yeah...you have to squint and stand on your head to make a case anyone should be above him at this point.

He's the GOAT. Winning, putting up numbers, leading epic comebacks, and elevating the talent around him. He's the man.

I thought Rodgers had a chance to surpass Brady by the end of his career, and obviously he still has a chance, but with Brady orchestrating a miraculous comeback against the Falcons and Rodgers not, I think that is a mighty fine feather in Brady's cap in regards to that debate.

Rodgers is no doubt more physically gifted...

But he'd better get on his horse if he wants any shot of being compared to TB12...1 SB win/appearance ain't gonna cut it...and Rodgers is what, 32-33 now, right?

Hopefully our defense can even halfway keep up with him when the Pats come to Ray Jay next year.

Depends on how you define greatness, but by most definitions of the word, he is the greatest. Prolonged success, winning, put up the numbers when he had weapons, and continues to win when he has a lacrosse team for skill position players. He will still trail Marino and Rodgers as a pure passer, but taking the position as a whole, there is no argument left.

Keep him off the field..that's how we keep up with him...run game and sustained drives, that end with TD's, will be the deciding factor I think..

I heard a stat in the radio that Atlanta only ran 46 plays total...where as Brady had over 40 passing completions himself...I think the total offensive play count was something like 88-46 in favor of New England...

They gas your ass chasing those quick lil fuckers around and rushing the QB...a D can only hold up for so long..

Keep them on the bench...end your drives with 7..

I have always said Montana was the QB goat, but at this point even I have to give the title to Brady. He is the greatest QB to ever play the game. There I said it. Still doesn't change the fact that I would trip him given the opportunity.

I'm actually surprised that the "Brady ain't all that, it's all Bill... look at Matt Cassel and what they've always done without Brady" crowd hasn't come in here.

But I think he's been the QB on the best coached team for the last 15 years. 11-5 with Matt Cassel. 3-1 with nobody's at QB to start this season. Belichik is the driving force on this team. He gets the credit for me.. Brady gets drafted 199 by the browns and we've never heard of him. I appreciate that we are witnessing history right now. But I can't give him all or even most of the credit.


Agree with all this

Unless Brady is hurt or suspended, then whoever Bill plugs in scores the TD's.

That's a little unfair to Brady..

EVERY QB in the discussion for greatest of all time also had an all time great as a HC, no?

Winning SB's, Bradshaw had Noll, Montana had Walsh...

Pure QB skills, Marino had Shula, Elway had Shanahan whom won 2 SB'S and Reeves who took 2 different teams to SB'S...

Manning had Dungy who turned the league laughing stock, US, into a legit franchise...

Eli had Coughlin...not too shabby

Big Ben..Cower and Tomlin...again, pretty damn good..

To discredit Brady because of Belichek is pure laziness..

While I still think that other QBs have played the position at a higher level for a periods of time, there is little doubt that Tom Brady level of play over his career in addition to his unmatched postseason resume makes him the GOAT QB.

I said this in the MVP thread...There are periods, even years Aaron Rodgers plays the position like no one I've ever seen, but at the end Brady is still the GOAT.

If I believed in such things, I'd say Brady made a deal with the Devil. Scads of money. Beautiful wife. Beautiful kids. Ageless body. Pretty much a fairy tale life or so it seems from the outside looking in.

Who, Terry Tate and Swashy believe Brady isn't the best ever because of BeliCheat?? Wow. I understand missing the obvious, used to that around here, just come up with a better reason than he has BeliCheat.

Is Ali the greatest, or did he just have a good coach? Jordan? Phelps? Penalizing a player because he works well with a great coach? That's what you're supposed to do, idiot.

What's next, Brady isn't the GOAT because his Dad was a coach? Or he had a great HS coach? Insider tip - the path to greatness is usually instigated by outside forces that the truly great one's know to take full advantage of.

"Brady would be the GOAT but he's not because he's been around talented people" might be the most casual opinion I've read in the last 7 minutes for so. Wow just wow!!
