Did Von Miller just admit that Tom Brady is the GOAT?

Denver Broncos linebacker, Von Miller, knows who the real GOAT is, but doesn’t want to admit it.

Or does he?

In a recent interview, Miller may or may not have let it slip that he thinks Tom Brady is the greatest quarterback of all-time. But he quickly switched his answer back to Peyton Manning, in an attempt to show his loyalty to the former leader of his team.

“[What is unique about] Tom Brady?” Miller asked. “Everything. He’s the GOAT. He’s the GOAT, but I feel like Peyton Manning is the real GOAT, but Tom Brady is the GOAT.”

Wait, what?

“I mean, I’m going to go with my guy,” Miller continued. “I’m going to go with Peyton, but I mean Tom Brady is the GOAT.”

“Sometimes guys are just different. It’s just different for each individual. Brady is playing until 40, and it looks like he can play until 45. Some other guys, they can’t make it that many years. It’s all different. That all falls into the equation of Tom Brady being the GOAT.”

In even more confusing matters and mental trickery, Miller kept going with his long-winded responses.

“I mean, whenever you’re talking about ‘TB12,’ it’s just like that’s his name, too,” Miller said. “It’s not correct. It’s not correct, but that is his name. But it’s not correct, because, in my opinion, Peyton Manning is the GOAT. But that is his name. You know what I’m saying? It’s kind of weird. Tom Brady, that’s his real name. It’s kind of like Bill and William. That’s his name. He is the GOAT, but in all reality, it’s Peyton. That’s my guy.”

No, Von, we have no clue what you’re trying to say, but we appreciate you recognizing the talent and successes of Brady.

The Denver Broncos will have a chance to go against the “GOAT, but not really the GOAT” - according to Miller - in a few days on Sunday Night Football.
