  • Peyton manning is the greatest QB of all time. 2 time champ, 4 appearances Broke the single season touchdown record, twice. Manning is the standard. Brady has had some pretty phenomenal defenses over the years that beat manning and the indianapolis defense were less constitent to put it blunt

  • The comparisons: Tom Brady, Michael Jordan, Bill Russell, LeBron James The reality: MJ only went 6 times in a short span of ‘91-98, and couldn’t do it again on another team. Credibility is earned by putting yourself into situations to prove your a champion, even more so when your competition is multiplied or hardened. You don’t GAIN credibility by ONLY making it to 6 finals over 15 years, and they’re not even sudden death lol Even Lebron has gone to the finals more often over a longer period of time AND on different teams. In fact, IF he had won each of his appearances, as we all know he is the common denominator for his teams appearances despite how it pains me to admit, he would have nearly tied Bill Russel’s feat of winning 11. And Russell played in the 50’s-60’s when nba was fledgling and to be fair, fledgling sports teams with little money or notoriety means weak competition. LeBron has seen the finals as often as Brady, but with half the championships to show for it. These two are contemporaries as well, so any ‘tougher competition’ argument is out the window. But the bigger point is that lebron has the talent in a talent pool exponentially greater than Russell would have experienced, and STILL put himself into a situation to mirror exactly what Russell did. The NFL has been around 30 years longer than the nba and NO ONE in the NFL has duplicated what Brady has done, and Brady’s not repeating what anyone else has already done. The fact that such lengthy dominance in early football is non-existent in comparison to Bill Russell’s basketball dominance should alone be a testament to the difficulty to reaching the Super Bowl, let alone TEN times over a TWENTY year period of consistent winning and on different teams at that. NFL has more coaches per team, more players meaning more moving cogs and more holes/injuries to exploit, vs just really 8/9 players on an nba team. Brady, like LeBron, is the common denominator for championships. And shove your stats arguments because ain’t no stats quarterback pulling conference titles or super bowls wins like Brady. And the ‘he hasn’t won them all’ argument makes sense in tennis, but not in football when we’re talking one man on a team of 53 with 16 coaches, no one is superhuman. Only Brady has the wins, the appearances, the consistency over the longest period of time on multiple teams with the best, the fastest, the strongest, the smartest competition that has yet existed. There is no argument, across the board of team sports, BRADY IS THE GOAT The TRUE GOAT: Tom Brady

  • Dosen't matter what they say comparing Brady to Jordan is all subjective they play 2 totally different sports. Take Marcus Spears argument that its harder to win in Football. That's totally his opinion thats not based in facts whatsoever so all of this is subjective its impossible to compare Football to Basketball apples to oranges.

    Mr RightMr Rightپیش 17 روز
  • Extremely hard to compare Football to Basketball. Football is far MORE of a team effort because of lots of more players on the team. Therefore, it's hard to measure the exact contribution made by any 1 player. One single person can't carry the team. Basketball is far more suitable for making "1 man army" arguments and saying Michael Jordan single-handedly made his team win when it really mattered through the sheer force of his will. Beyond a doubt though Tom Brady IS the GOAT of Football and there is monumental amount of factual evidence to support that belief. On the other hand, a reasonable argument can be made saying Lebron James is GOAT of basketball and not Jordon. It might be fair to construct an argument that Brady is GOAT of all team sports since he is more "peerless" in his sport and that Labron and Jordan have peers ( each other ). There is no other football player like Brady, but there is another basketball player like Labron and Jordan ( each other )

  • Saying Jordan is unbeatable in the finals is such a bad argument for him being the GOAT. Did he only play in those 6 seasons??? Brady was already arguably the GOAT athlete, this chip puts him over any others.

  • Michael Jordan chose to be marketed, some choose not to be. Nike, Warner Brothers, McDonald's. is he more, globally recognized; yes, is he an unbelievable, clutch athlete; yes. I would bet my life, Patrick Mahomes never wins 7 super bowls. Is he amazing; yes. my son loves the new guy! After Brady came back to beat Atlanta, it put him on a different level of being great. Even his boy Mark Wahlberg was leaving the stadium. Kellerman is a Brady hater, well join the club of others dude, no problem. Loved Drew Bledsoe, and now, who is this clown taking his place....turned out to be the greatest thing that ever happened to New England and for the NFL too. Just ask Robert Kraft's bank account. I'm moving to Tampa

  • Max Kellerman is lost in the sauce and needs to get off of Jordan’s jock strap!!! Jordan is 6 for 6 in NBA championships in a great 15 year NBA career that includes playing with the Bulls and lastly the Wizards and he got beat by the legend Koby Bryant. Tom Brady has played since 2000 and has won 7 championships which includes one with the Buccaneers as a 43 year old and he beat the new young bull on the block Patrick Mahomes!!! It is what it is Brady is the all time sports Goat until someone outdoes his record!!!

I'm not a fan of American football, but from what I see the quarter back doesnt do much compared to others on the team. He doesnt really get hit, when the ball switches sides he diesnt even play and gets full rested like of course hes gonna last that long!! If he were in any other position he wouldn't. He just has to throw the ball and most of the times not get tackled and when he does it's a light tackle
