Following his Super Bowl 49 victory this past week, and his fourth league championship in 14 years, Tom Brady has joined a class all of his own and has solidified himself as the greatest quarterback to ever play the game of football.

Tom Brady has six Super Bowl appearances, tied for most in the NFL, ever. Tom Brady also holds the record for most Super Bowl wins as a starting quarterback in NFL history.

Despite all of the records, Tom Brady is still not given enough credit for what he has done for the game, and his rank among all time quarterbacks undergoes ample scrutiny.

Peyton Manning is one of the first quarterbacks to come to mind. Peyton has undeniable talent, this is conspicuous. But the offensive talent that has surrounded Peyton throughout his career is significantly superior than the talent that Brady has employed.

In Super Bowl 48, Manning and the Broncos crumbled against the Seattle Seahawks. This year, with an arguably not-as-good Patriot team, defeated the Seahawks, whereas last year, the Broncos couldn’t manage to squander out a measly touchdown against their foe and fell 48-8. This in itself should be enough to deter any Manning fan (who happens to be 11-13 in the post season) from making the fallacious statement that Manning is better than Brady.

In the last 15 seasons, the Patriots have failed to draft a receiver in the first round. Yet, Brady continues to put up astonishing passing statistics. In 2007, Brady finally had the opportunity to play with a close tier one receiver in Randy Moss. That season, Brady passed for 50 touchdowns in what is regarded as one of the greatest passing seasons of all time. Imagine if he had the talent that Manning or Montana have had in Reggie Wayne, Marvin Harrison, Demaryius Thomas, or even Jerry Rice. The statistics would be incredible.

To this day, I’m not certain why this argument still exists. Tom Brady is the greatest quarterback to ever pick up a football in history.
