The Greatest Player in the History of the NFL?
Is still this guy:
But Tom Brady is putting forward a very strong case. My family and friends will tell you that I was raving about Joe Montana in 1981, and Brett Favre in 1992. But there is little denying that Brady has accomplished more in his 7 years as a starter than either of those two at the comparable point in their careers. If he wins another Super Bowl in three weeks as is looking increasingly likely, I think you have to put him on the top rung. This is the golden year, the seal it year like Joe Montana had in 1989.
Brady is 13-2 in playoff games; Montana was 16-6. If Brady wins out this year, he'd be 15-2. In the playoffs, where every team is solid. That's amazing.
