These numbers show why Tom Brady is the best to ever do it









We can all agree that Tom Brady is quite the athlete but is he really the best quarterback in the NFL or even the best quarterback of all time?

 

If we just look at the amount of Super Bowls that he has won (5), or the amount of AFC championships he has won (7), or even the four Super Bowl MVP awards he has earned, as well as the two NFL MVP awards, we can safely say without doubt he is the best ever.

 

Also, the statistics speak the truth; Tom Brady is easily the best quarterback of all time.

Now he may not be the leader in every single category but he is ranked extremely high in almost all of them. These numbers are extremely respectable but he continues to prove his excellence by doing all of this without having the best players, best offense, in the NFL.

 

Vince Wilfork, during his retirement press conference, summed up Tom Brady and what he can do with any type of team perfectly, “I had the luxury to play with the greatest quarterback that ever played the game — hands down. When you can take a quarterback and give him different receivers and put him in different offenses and day in and day out and every year, do what you do, you’re the greatest.”

 

He continued to state, “Tom doesn’t have Randy Mosses and Jerry Rices and stuff like that. He has (Rob Gronkowski). He has (Julian) Edelman. He has guys that proved to him that they can win. And to do that day in and day out with some guys that come from other teams, that people overlook, hands down he’s the greatest. If you give him four top receivers in the game on one field, what do you think will happen? Some of these quarterbacks we talk about that are supposedly the greatest, they had that around them. They had three, four targets around them that were Hall of Famers, that was the best of the best. They had that. Tom don’t.”




 

He finished up by saying, “I’m not saying (New England’s receivers) aren’t good or great, but he don’t have the Jerry Rices. He don’t have the Randy Mosses anymore. When he did have Randy Moss and Wes Welker, he broke the (single-season NFL touchdown) record. And he’s breaking (more) records with what he has and those guys made a name for themselves.”

 

There is not a quarterback like him to ever grace the NFL or even the game of football. There is no doubt about it; Tom Brady is the best quarterback of all time.
