I know that's a goofy phrase. It doesn't really mean anything & everyone has their own definition of elite. Tom Brady is one of those QBs that most people agree can be described as elite. Personally, I never really thought much of him. When he was fresh in the league, I thought he benefited from being on a really good team, with an out-of-the-box head coach who just happened to have out-of-the-box players that got it done. After the third Super Bowl, I pretty much tuned out all the Brady non-sense, but I've noticed he has gotten much better as a QB since those Super Bowl days. I found this article on PatsFan. The funny thing about it, is that he's talking about how he's been getting worse over the last few years. Halfway through the piece, & I got to thinking..... uh, I can think of 16 starting QBs who'd like to have declining numbers like that. I know it's not all about the numbers & Tom Brady would be the first one to tell you he'd rather have another Lombardy than some jack-wipe like me calling him elite..... but for the first time ever, I'm saying it. Tom Brady is elite. To be elite, imo, it's not just performing at a high level. It's not the top 3 QBs in the league. It's performing at a high level over a long period of time. Brady's done that. Any who, thought it was a well written, though blatantly "off season; running out of stuff to talk about" kinda thing, thought I'd share.
