Joe Namath: No one has ever played the game better than Tom Brady
When it comes to Joe Namath, he has an opinion on everything. Even Tom Brady.
Namath is a New York Jet legend. He is one of only two Jet quarterbacks to really have a legacy that will last. His is Super Bowl III and the guaranteed win. The other is March Sanchez's butt fumble. But just because he is a Jet legend doesn't mean his opinion of Brady is negative. In fact, its quite the opposite.
No one’s ever been better. No one’s ever been better than Tom Brady, I don’t believe. And I go back to watching the guys earlier in some of the darker days, in the ’50s. One of my first heroes was Otto Graham. Come on, 10 straight title games in Cleveland. He was just spectacular. Bobby Layne was a unique quarterback, really terrific. Getting into the modern era, Peyton Manning has had his wonderful performances. Don’t tell me anybody is better than Aaron Rodgers, either. Better than, better than, better than. The best, the best, the best. To each his own. I have a hard time calling anybody in any sport “the best” because of the changes in the game, certainly, and because of the greats that were ahead of them. But I will say, no one has ever played the game better than Tom Brady. You start looking at numbers, and sometimes statistics tell a story, and sometimes they don’t tell the whole story. It’s such a team game. But Tom has answered the bell. He has answered every challenge. He’s great. He’s great. No one has ever done it better.
He brings up a great point. We get lost in stats and rings and how they do in clutch time but really, has anyone ever played the game better than Tom Brady? He just does what ever it takes to win. And he is very good at that. He might just end up as the winningest quarterback ever. He already has that title for the playoffs and his winning percentage is higher than any other QB to play the game.
So while we might never settle the debate on which quarterback is better than the others, Namath is right, Brady is already the best at playing the game. And at the end of the day, that's all that really matters.
Me? well i thought you'd never ask. well i'm around 25 years old, give or take, i mean the only way to tell for sure is to cut me open and count my rings but for now i'm content to say i'm 25. i'm freakin funny, and if you disagree with me i will stab you in the jaw. i love to just chill with my friends, they are awesome, they laugh at my jokes, sure, it took some jaw stabbing but hey its not always easy. i haven't quite mastered the whole think before you speak program, apparently, if you start a sentence with "now don't take this the wrong way" people still take it the wrong way. i know, i know, it doesn't make any sense to me either, but it happens. twice while i was fishing, i've seen beavers with paws the size of frying pans that could rip a mans face right off! oh and i hate bears, its just terrible what happened to those two hikers from the czech republic. terrible. i really like to go fourwheeling, i like to work on cars but i'm way to lazy to actually do it. i cant wait to go snowboarding this winter, i'm pretty good, steve once said i looked like a train wreck, he's borderline pro, so that really made my day. oh and once i had a dream.
