Is Tom Brady the greatest quarterback to ever play the game? New England Patriots owner Robert Kraft thinks that might be the case. While comparing Brady with his childhood idol, Joe Montana, Kraft had nothing but good things to say about the Pats QB.
"I think that Tommy, with all due respect, is better than Joe Montana," Kraft told NFL.com. "I know that's a leap, but I really think he might already be the best of all time. I watch how involved he is, how driven he is. He's like (Patriots coach Bill) Belichick, he's into the details. And he's got a skill that makes him so special, he can process all of it so quickly. And then, he's just got that quality. Certain people have that sincerity. He's a very genuine guy. People can relate to him. People can trust him."
While some folks may see Kraft's comments as being his biased opinion, let's look at the numbers. Over the course of his 12-year career, Brady has a postseason record of 14-5 with five Super Bowl appearances where he has gone 3-2 overall. In addition, the 35-year-old has tossed 300 touchdowns while only throwing 135 picks. Do these stats warrant a "greatest of all time" label next to Brady's name? It's too close to call at this point, so why don't we revisit this conversation when his career is done, OK? Ready, break!
