    I think last night finally settles any lingering Brady/Manning debates (if there ever was one).
    I think it also cements Brady as the greatest QB of all time.
    Thoughts?

    Brady has to get it.

    I think Staubach could have been if he didn't spend 6 years in the Navy but as it is, Brady is GOAT.

    Brady is certainly among the greatest QBs to ever play the game but I don't think he's necessarily the greatest of all time, the best of the best.
    That's just all of those media types flapping their lips, you know those guys many if not most of whom ever played pewee football ball. What Brady is categorically the QB with more achievements than any other NFL QB ever. 5 SB wins & 4 SB MVPs seals that. But is he really without question a better QB than Aron Rogers or a better QB than John Elway, or whoever ? Maybe or maybe not.

    Manning? This has always been about Brady and Montana for me and last night Brady elevated to GOAT status.

    I mean to orchestrate the biggest comeback in SB history and to break the SB passing record with your best weapon on the bench and a bunch of undrafted slot midgets as your supporting cast? Last night was history. You just knew when they won the OT coin toss that the game was already over.

    Damn.

    I always was a Manning, but I'm rethinking it all.

    To me it also was Brady v Montana. Tough to top Montana's 4-0. I don't know that 5-2 does it for me. If anything they're equals in my eyes.
    Could Joe have played in this era? Absolutely.
    How effective would Brady be in 80-90s? Ehhh...I'm not sure. He really doesn't like being hit and QBs were terrorized in Montana's era.
    1A and 1B unless Brady wins 6. Then yeah he's the GOAT.

    How effective would Brady be if he had Jerry Rice? He's made a HOF career out of throwing to guys like Edelman, Welker, and Branch.

    The one year he had an elite WR (Moss) he broke the TD record.

    Brady has had tons of hate on this site for years. I bet a lot of TT members were choking on crow last night.

    Brady was GOAT when he went to this 5th SB and lost to NY. Neither of those losses to NY were his fault. The other team got the ball last, and his defense gave up the big plays. He already had been to more SB's than Montana and already had stats that were blowing away Montana's best seasons and I'm also a huge Montana fan. Watching young Brady reminded me of Montana more than any player I had ever seen, but he surpassed him quite a while back. He has had more playoff wins than Montana for years now. His playoff success going to 11 AFC championship games is even more impressive than the SB wins honestly. The only team that ever whipped the Patriots in the playoffs was the Ravens the year after Brady came back from that surgery. Every other playoff loss was typically a nail biter that went down to the last minute or two.

    Brady has almost doubled the amount of times that Montana went to the SB, and trumps his playoff record. Sorry, but this argument is completely dead. 7 SB appearances to 4, and 25 playoff wins to to 16 of Montanta. Brady has destroyed Montana in regular season stats and the playoff stats aren't even close.

    Why do you add this score settling into so many of your posts?

    Nice of the revisionist historian to appear and tell us what we all thought.

    Give the history shtick a rest. It's tired and sad.

    There has been so much unwarranted hate towards this guy for years. A lot of it on this site. Thats the nture of sports. You'll see a few chime in and take away from what they've accomplished out of pure hate and jealousy. Its deserved.

    After guys like you trashed Brady for a long time and argued that Deflategate nonsense, sorry but that isn't happening.

    Having never really watched the greats of the past, I don't qualify to make a GOAT comment. Having said that, he's definitely the greatest QB I've ever seen play the game.

    Never trashed Brady. Nice demonstration of your BS.

    It's Texecutioner's MO - lie about the MB as a whole or an individual and then tear the lie down. Even in 28 paragraphs he can't straight up argue something. It's sad because he actually has fair football knowledge.
