Tom Brady won his 19th playoff game last night, which is the most in history. In the process of bringing the Patriots back from the brink against the Baltimore Ravens last night, Brady set even more records. He now has the most passing touchdowns (46), surpassing the great Joe Montana (Brady's childhood idol). He also passed Peyton Manning's 6,589 passing yards for the most ever. That one is not set in stone yet, of course, as Peyton hasn't retired yet.

But it cements Brady's place in history as the greatest quarterback in history in my mind. He's at his best when it matters most. Here's what Bill Belichick had to say about it, per ESPN:
"He deserves it. Tom's a great, clutch player with tremendous poise, vision, accuracy," Patriots coach Bill Belichick said. "So, he's done it with a lot of different receivers, a lot of different situations against a lot of different defenses. I think that speaks to his greatness and his ability to perform consistently under pressure. No quarterback I'd rather have than Tom Brady."

Hard to argue with Coach Bill's assessment. For Patriots fans, it's hard to think of another quarterback you would rather have leading your team right now than Tom Brady. The guy is a proven winner, he's competitive and he's driven by the thought of a 4th Super Bowl.

Well, step 1 is done. Next step is either Denver or Indianapolis.
