Was just browsing NFL.com this morning came across an article by Adam Schein who had this to say about Tom Brady:
Tom Brady: The best quarterback ever
I’ve written this multiple times on NFL.com and talked about it on SiriusXM and CBS Sports Network. In addition to the overall feel, Brady has the numbers, the wins, the Super Bowl appearances (6) and the Lombardi Trophies (4) to prove it.
But this year is next-level stuff.
After being suspended four games to start the season (wrongfully so, in my estimation), Brady is arguably playing the most perfect football of his career. Four games in, the 39-year-old wonder has thrown 12 touchdown passes against zero picks, while completing a whopping 73.1 percent of his passes. None of this is surprising, by the way: Everyone knew Brady would come out with a take-no-prisoners mentality. But that doesn’t make his staggering production any less … well … staggering.
As I said above, Carr is my leader for MVP, but Brady is a close second. And here’s the beauty: The Patriots aren’t going to lose again. The remaining drama in the AFC is the race for No. 2.
And Bill Belichick can make a “wow” trade on Monday, dealing an ultra-talented linebacker (Jamie Collins) to Cleveland for a pick. Was Collins asking for too much money as a free agent-to-be? Was the 27-year-old freelancing too much on defense? Was this some kind of message to the locker room?
Honestly, Bill Belichick can do whatever he wants — because he’s Bill Belichick. And he has Tom Brady.
Clearly someone fell asleep at the wheel at NFL.com, this Adam guy better get his things packed and start setting up a GoFundMe account because I can’t believe what I just read. Writing for NFL.com is probably like fight club, the first rule when you walk in is: You do not talk about Tom Brady (in a good way), the second rule is see rule 1. I have no problem with him saying Carr is his early MVP, at least he is logical and not saying that Brady has no business being in the MVP talks like Kellerman or Reggie Wayne. At the end of the season, I am sure things will pan out in Brady’s favor.
At this point in his career, how you can even argue that Tom Brady isn’t the greatest QB of all time is beyond me. Montana has one thing going for him and one thing only, 4 Super Bowl appearances and 4 wins. That’s great and all, but that’s where it ends for him. Everywhere else, Brady slaughters Montana, it isn’t even close:
Throw in playoff wins and Brady is pushing 200 which is the record that he will also break. Brady blows away Montana and if you think otherwise, you are just fooling yourself. Sorry…
