TOM BRADY: G.O.A.T
“You know what my favorite ring is? THE NEXT ONE.”
THEY SAID YOU WERE DONE
THEY SAID YOU SHOULD BE BENCHED
THEY SAID YOU WERE NO LONGER ELITE
THEY SAID YOU WERE OVERRATED
THEY SAID THE DYNASTY WAS OVER
THEY EVEN SAID YOU WERE A CHEATER
THEY HAVE DOUBTED YOU FROM THE BEGINNING
BUT TODAY, THEY SAY
GREATEST OF ALL TIME aka G.O.A.T
What’s the difference between Colin Kaepernick and Tom Brady? Tom Brady’s a Patriot and a… WINNER! Here we are once again at the beginning of February, days before the greatest of all sporting spectacles descends upon us in HDTV. Like clockwork, the New England Patriots and an up-and-comer you may have heard of—one Tom Brady—is ready to take the field and forever secure his place in the annuls of professional football as the single greatest player in NFL history. This is not hyperbole, this is a fact. And I love me some Tom Brady!
Honestly, there really isn’t a question in my mind or that of any rational sports analyst that Tom Brady has already etched his name in NFL history for all time. The only outstanding question is… Greatest Of All Time? I argue this has already been achieved. The naysayers and haters of the world lay claim to the fact that he has the same number of rings as Terry Bradshaw and Joe Montana (four). OK, I get it. The only real true measure is Super Bowl championships and the “bling” that comes along with the win.
Alright, here it goes and I’m not going to go off on a tangent.
- Three-time Super Bowl MVP (2001, 2003, 2014)
- Two-time regular-season MVP (2007, 2010)
- Comeback Player of the Year (2009)
- Two-time Offensive Player of the Year (2007, 2010)
- Two-time first-team All-Pro (2007, 2010)
- 12 Pro Bowls
- First in games started: 33
- First in quarterback wins: 24
- First in passes completed: 788
- First in passes attempted: 1,263
- First in passing yards: 8,628
- First in passing touchdowns: 61
- First in game-winning drives: 9
- First in fourth-quarter comebacks: 6
Super Bowl records
- First in appearances: 7 (counting this year)
- Tied for first in quarterback wins: 4
- First in passes completed: 164
- First in passes attempted: 247
- First in passing yards: 1,605
- First in passing touchdowns: 13
- First in consecutive completions: 16 in 2011
Put that in your pipe and smoke it. The defense rests its case.
What’s at stake in Super Bowl LI
If the Patriots beat the Falcons, Tom Brady officially gets the “Greatest Quarterback Ever” title. There’s no way to argue it. You can disagree with how much #SuperBowlRingz and #QBWinz matter, but there’s no doubting how history will view Brady if he wins a fifth Super Bowl. Thus, #12TBGOAT!
For one, he’ll have won the most Super Bowls of all time. That’s five, #Haters! Again, that’s technically a team statistic, but when you combine it with the countless individual records he has set (see above), it vaults him to the top of the list.
Furthermore, if the Patriots beat the Falcons, they’ll have outscored one of the greatest scoring offenses in NFL history, which means if the Patriots win they will likely win because of Brady and the offense, which means Brady has a great chance to walk away with a record fourth Super Bowl MVP — breaking a tie with Joe Montana. Again, all of this will cement his status as the Greatest Of All Time.
Plus, there’s the bonus of getting to receive the Lombardi and MVP trophies from Roger Goodell. Nothing is better than revenge… says Taylor Swift (and she ought to know)!
So, print out my Fab Party Prop Bets sheet, settle into your favorite La-Z-Boy (Live Life Comfortably) recliner, kick back with that six-pack of Budweiser (The King of Beers), a bag of Flamas Doritos (For the Bold), and that pie from Papa John’s (Better Ingredients, Better Pizza) for some serious RedZone (From NFL Network) football TV watching. Because this game is going to be super, and that’s no tomfoolery.
Remember… real women watch football. Smart, beautiful, sexy, amazing women watch the Patriots!
