Is Brady the luckiest qb ever ?

That is a great question, who is better all-time - Brees or Rodgers? Both have 1 SB win. Rodgers does have 2 MVP's, Brees 0. Brees is a little machine though.

 

This is what makes sports fun. We all have our opinions and it is (at least to me) fun to go back and forth and "argue" our cases.

but at some point, everyone on here has to admit that Brady is the best QB of all time.

 

No we don't.

 

I admit he's a crucial member of the best dynasty of all time.  But I give more credit to BB for the dynasty than Brady.

 

If we're talking purely QB, Peyton is 1.  Then there's everyone else.

Honestly, what is Peyton better than Brady in? Strictly as a QB, Brady and Peyton are equals in the regular season, record-wise and stats-wise for the most part. In the postseason, Brady crushes Peyton and is clutch, while Peyton chokes. You can give the credit to Belichick all you want, but Manning had Dungy with him for a lot of his career. If Brady was a "system" qb as a lot of people say, than a "system" qb was putting up similar stats to Peyton Manning with a worse offense. Again, you are using excuses like Belichick as a last line of defense. You take the hand you are given. If Brady was on the Colts, you'd be saying he was no1. It's team bias, and most people have it. Enough is enough though, it's his 9th SB. Quit being so petty.

If it is simply system then the Colts franchise as well as the other 30 are stupid for not switching systems. To say it is a system and the players don't matter is just simply a too simplistic view. If it was only system then shouldn't the Colts have switched to it since in your opinion Manning was better?

Well the other 31 teams dont have BB and none of his assistants actually know his system like he does so hiring them wont work either.

Tom Brady is BY FAR THE MOST OVERRATED PLAYED TO EVER STEP UNDER CENTER.  He wouldn't have a damn thing in his career if it wasnt for Belichick.  He is miles ahead of most coaches in the league. I hate the Patriots as much as the next true colts fan. But, I honestly believe that belichick could go out and sign almost anyone to play that spot and they will still make the playoffs. Yeah, they have benefitted in a bad division and all. But, it's like belichick has some sort of magic ball.

 

Now, to give a point to prove that anyone could step in for Brady and do close to the same thing he gets done. 

      -in OT, Brady threw the ball 9 times. Of those 9 throws I saw 1 pass that actually had  defender that was close enough to limit the damage. The one to Gronk on 3rd and 10. And the defender had no chance to stop the ball there. He was outside and behind A few steps. 3 for 3 on 3rd downs that drive. All at 3rd and long... 

     - BB lost brady for a season after like 1 quarter AND STILL won 11 games. Not to mention who he did it with at QB. (Cassell) 

Brady has never had a overly weak side of the team. The 2 seasons the true GOAT had a real kicker and a more than capable defense to challenge the other team he won 2 rings. Would have at least 3 if hank basket wasnt out messing around w/his favorite tranny the night before the biggest game of the year. Or Mike vanderjagt stopped drinking. 

     - and the very last point to prove that Brady is the luckiest player ever. The sea Seahawks didnt run the ball on the 2.

He won 11 games on the 2nd weakest schedule.. and oh ya the team was pretty much intact from the year before when they went 16-0.  With Brady I dare say they repeat that feat again and that year go 19-0.

 

overly weak side? I’m not sure what that means? But outside of Moss in 07 name one HOF or even potential HOF WR Brady has had? Edelman? Everyone says he isn’t all that great.. Welker? He was at best average in Miami..

 

im not saying Brady didn’t benefit from BB, he did.  But so has BB, with Brady he never EVER had worry about the offensive side of the ball since 2003. He could focus on schemes and plans for the D While leaving Brady and the OC (Weis,O’Brien or McDaniels) to deal with the O. 

 

Brady elevated the WR he had/has around him.. The Colts did not do that with Manning they surrounded him with 1st round WR talent all the time.  Which IMO was silly he was good enough elevate average talent and they could have built a D and challenged the Pats a lot more than they did.

Cleveland had Belichick and didn't do squat. He was 36-44 and his team made the playoffs one time. Why didn't his system work there? If it is the system and players don't matter then why doesn't Cleveland have Super Bowl trophies?

Haha, I think we'd have to figure out 18 years of history on what's scripted lol. Brady is putting up a lot of the stats like Brady for real and the wins, I do believe a few of those SBs were scripted though. Especially the 2001 though with 9-11 happening and all that. I called that one as a 14 year old and made my uncle money where he bought me a nintendo gamecube.

5 years is a pretty long time to get a system in place. He had one winning season out of 5. He didn't get the job done in Cleveland plain and simple. Maybe the reason why is because he didn't have Tom Brady!

System QB or not... The defense has plug in play guys too.. so ya'll put two and two together... There D line has no names.. who were all over Mahomes. The CB's can play cover 0.. on the fastest WR in the league and not get burned once..

 

The Oline can block the best pass rushing teams flawlessly. Bosa, Ingram, Houston, Jones, Ford, probably altogether places 2 fingers on Brady.

 

How are the other coaches who came from belichick doing?

 

The only coach who takes away the other teams top guy every game. 

 

Malcolm who makes the superbowl clinching play. becomes a star. Then get benched for another superbowl. then booted from the team. His patriot backup has a career year..

 

So lucky... i will not say officially. But Tom Brady isn't the one kissing his own ***... it's every one else..

What has he won without Tom Brady? He didn't make the playoffs when they went 11-5 with Cassel at QB. Which Super Bowl did the Patriots win that Tom Brady wasn't the QB? I'll make it easy for you. None of them.

I don't think either would have this record without each other.

 

They're a dynamic duo.  I don't have to like it, or support it, but I can admit it.

But when Peyton was out we got the 1st overall pick. One misses a season and they suck the other misses a season and they go 11-5 seems like better talent coaching and a system to me. Had peyton had BB I bet he wins 10 or more SBs.

Shame on Bill Polian for not having a viable backup in place at QB. The ghost of Kerry Collins and Curtis Painter are a far cry from Matt Cassel, Jimmy G, and Jacoby Brissett.

I never understand how people equate 4-0 being better than 5-3..

 

how can you say Montana is better based off those stats?  He played with Jerry Rice for all those championships and had the same cast around him all the time..  

 

 

Jerry Rice, who was illegally using stick'em the whole time! Haha...

 

Seriously though, I never understood this argument. Somehow it's better to be eliminated earlier in the playoffs?

Montana was 16-7 in the postseason (includes 2-2 record with KC). I think he had at least three one-and-dones.

I could go on forever about why Manning is the best to ever play QB, and it wouldn't be petty against Brady.  It would just be the same things you're going to hear from any former defender that had to play against Peyton.

 

He's the most football-intelligent QB to ever run an offense.  Period.

That's true. I just don't trust him in the playoffs. It was very frustrating losing all those times and seeing Brady make it almost every year. The all-time draft is subjective, but I just can't see how people can argue the GOAT anymore. My dad is 58, watched Elway's entire career as a Bronco fan, and he says Brady is the best. I just want him to retire so we can win a SB with Luck at some point. It's going to be hard enough beating the Chiefs.

See the tweet I posted on a previous page. It shows that Brady has had 11 wins in the playoffs when playing poorly (maybe the worst player on his team that day) while in another 11 games Manning puts up better numbers and loses. Yes, Brady has had games where he executes late and wins in the playoffs, but he would have been sitting at home on the couch for many of those had he had the same playoff luck/support from teammates as Manning and Brees.

I'm not saying Matt Cassell was All Pro, but statistically speaking he was better than both Kerry Collins and Curtis Painter.

http://www.nfl.com/player/kerrycollins/2500150/careerstats

 

http://www.nfl.com/player/mattcassel/2506562/careerstats

 

Just look at the stats for the years that Cassell played for Brady (2008) and that Collins and Painter played for Manning (2011). For a career, Kerry Collins was a better NFL QB than Cassell, but by the time he was a Colt he was not the same QB he was with the Panthers.

Then why is it that per a poll most defenders don’t want to face Brady more than any other QB?  Most of them played Manning and they all fear Brady more.. why is that? Exactly because when the chips are on the line he goes to a different level.

 

Mannibg is great, and I have him as 1b myself but people trying state “well any defender faced Manning” is just well poop! Because they ALL had face Brady and usually got their butts kicked by him.. not so with Manning esp in the playoffs. You see be the best you have to elevate your game when it counts most. How many 4th quarter comebacks did Peyton have in the playoffs?

But it does mention Super Bowls. I guarantee you Manning would trade the MVP's for Super Bowls without a second thought. Going along with your line of thought it also leaves out Super Bowl MVP's of which Brady has a 4-1 advantage in that category.

The point is the article is an incomplete comparison.  So is just looking at SB MVPs.  Or just stats.  Especially just SB wins.  Their careers are comparable in every way when looking at the whole picture.

 

But Peyton is the most football-intelligent QB to ever play.  Period.

 

And that's the one thing where nobody ever tries to say Brady has the advantage because it has nothing to do with teammates, HC, or the competition.  It's purely individually on playing the position of QB, and Peyton was the best at it.  Ever.

You act like Brady is some buffoon tripping over himself on the field. In the most important moments Brady almost always comes up clutch. You can have all the intelligence you want but if it doesn't translate into victories then what good was it? 

 

In no way am I trying to deny the greatness of Peyton Manning. I do find it comical that when it comes to the most important thing (winning) the Manning apologists want to put the emphasis elsewhere.

 

Manning put up some amazing numbers and I won't argue that his football acumen is second to no one. The thing is Tom Brady is not far behind him in that. The guy is a winner and he continues to win even at an advanced (for football) age.

 

I have one question. If you have 2 minutes to win the Super Bowl and your team needs a TD to win who are you going to want on the field? (I know you'll say Manning) For my money, I want Tom Brady.

That’s One! Lol.. I should have remembered that one... Brady Broke the record against the Hawks (largest comeback in the SB 4th quarter) then smashed it against the Falcons (25 points in less than a half)

 

my point is be considered the greatest you have to show up at crunch crunch time in the playoffs.  Also like I said isn’t like I have a huge margin between the two I have Brady as 1a and Manning as 1B..

As much as I despise the constant comparisons of these 2, I miss the rivalry.  I really do.

 

Some of the most exciting games I ever watched was the matchup between these two greats.

First, I'm not saying anything close to Brady is a buffoon, so don't put words in my mouth.  Brady is very football-intelligent, and probably the most clutch QB ever.  I'm not trying to bash Brady.  He is one of the greatest of all time.

 

Second, winning is a team effort in the sport of football, so it's not the most important factor when talking about the best individual to ever play QB.  You're not going to say Charles Haley is the best individual to ever rush the passer.

 

Third, again, I'm not bashing Brady.  He is one of the greatest to ever play.  But in my humble opinion, Manning is the best to ever play QB.  Was he ever part of the greatest team, or dynasty, or even the greatest offense?  No, but he was the greatest to ever play QB.  His football-intelligence put him in a league of his own.

I can't think of any time in the playoff careers of Manning or Brees where they have been as lucky as Brady was in those games. They should have both been losses on Brady's resume (both teams should have run the ball; Atlanta dropping an INT), regardless of how he inspired comebacks in each.

Running the ball is nice and all but look at the results they had all year from the 1.. they stunk! And the pass wasn’t bad it was actually a great play by Butler.

 

as for dropped INT, sure and if Asanta Samuel doesn’t drop an INT. Against the Giants the Pats go 19-0  and yet again Brady leads his team back from a deficit in the fourth.  All QB have a bit of luck and bad luck.. I mean when they get an INT because it goes threw their WR hands it’s Ugh..  but like I said Brady has more comeback wins in the playoffs than any other QB. He also could easily be 7-1 or with bad luck 3-4 sometimes it’s how the ball bounces..

Did it ever occur he has more 4th quarter comebacks because he has screwed up earlier in the game to get them behind. Just look at all the times early on in his career a field goal won it for Brady. 2001 vs raiders and rams. 2003 vs Carolina.  Vanderjact misses vs Miami in 2000 and Pitt in 2005.  As Rob Parker says Brady is the LOAT.    Luckiest of all time. Weather it be the field goals,  the obvious fumble, or the int to end the game twice chargers 2005, k.c. on Sunday only to have it turn the other way.  He is blessed.  And one other thing no one has mentioned is that Brady always has has a running game in the playoffs were peyton has not.

Based on pure luck and not all the other misc garbage I would say the Colts getting two 1st rnd QB's that became stars (Manning & Luck) doesn't get much better. Perfect timing.

    • I didnt think they would. It would just continue to draw out the saga. NFL really needs too restructure the tag, it can be incredibly unfair
    • 1. Arizona: Nick Bosa DE Ohio State Cardinals grab the best player in the draft. Unless they decide to move on from Rosen, Bosa will be the pick at number one. Pairing him up with Chandler Jones creates a dynamic pass rushing duo. 2. San Francisco: Josh Allen OLB Kentucky Their OLBs are highlighted by Dekoda Watson, Brock Coyle, and Malcolm Smith. Allen is an EDGE player that the 49ers are in desperate need of. Allen is the defensive playmaker they need after an underwhelming performance from Solomon Thomas and with Reuben Foster gone. 3. NY Jets: Quinnen Williams DE Alabama MikeKirsch's comments:The only notable DL under contract for the Jets is Leonard Williams. Adding a second Williams is the best move for the Jets at 3. 4. Oakland: Rashan Gary DE Michigan The Raiders need a better pass rush. If they had a player like Kahlil Mack last year their pass rush would have been better. The Raiders ranked dead last with 13 sacks last year. The Giants, 31st in sacks, had 30. To put that into comparison further, Mack had 12.5 sacks. Gary has the physical tools to play inside or on the edge. 5. Tampa Bay: Jonah Williams OT Alabama With the continued emphasis on the high passing attack with Arians, a solid pass protector will be needed on a regular basis. Williams can play both G and T. 6. NY Giants: Dwayne Haskins QB Ohio State The Giants need to address QB sooner than later. Manning is not getting younger and he is not getting better. Manning is still serviceable and Haskins can sit a year under Manning. 7. Jacksonville: Cody Ford OG Oklahoma Jacksonville gave up the 3rd most sacks in the NFL with 53. I'm making this selection under the impression that the Jags acquire Nick Foles. Ford can play both T or G and improve this O-line.  8. Detroit: Clelin Ferrell DE Clemson EDGE and TE are the most pressing needs for Detroit. I expect them to go EDGE here as Ansah is probably gone after an underwhelming season under the franchise tag. 9. Buffalo: Ed Oliver DT Houston With Kyle Williams retiring and Lotuleilei having an average season and will be 30 when the season is over, Bills need to grab a young, promising DT. Once viewed as a potential number one pick in this draft, Oliver is still a very solid player that should be picked in the top 10.  10. Denver: Greedy Williams CB LSU Chris Harris Jr turns 30 in June and Bradley Roby is a free agent. Even if Roby is brought back, Williams would still be a good move for the Broncos to solidify the secondary. A QB is possible here, but I don't expect them to go QB until next year since Flacco still has 2 years on his contract. 11. Cincinnati: Drew Lock QB Missouri Might be a slightly surprising pick here, but I think it's time for the Bengals to start fresh with a new QB. Dalton just hasn't gotten it done for them for the past 8 years. With Dalton turning 32 in October and with 4 winless postseason appearances, new HC Zac Taylor gets a new QB to work with after working with Jared Goff. 12. Green Bay: Jachai Polite DE Florida GB needs to strengthen their pass rush. Polite has explosive pass rush skills with great speed. Clay Matthews is in a decline and it's time to find his replacement. 13. Miami: Kyler Murray QB Oklahoma Tannehill has been average for the majority of his career, along with injuries. Miami will look to start fresh at QB with the Heisman winner. I don't think Murray will have any major struggles with his size.  14. Atlanta: Christian Wilkins DT Clemson Even if Grady Jarrett comes back, Wilkins is a solid pick to pair him up with Jarrett. Wilkins was a consistent 4 year starter at Clemson and can become another young defensive force for ATL like Jarrett, Jones, McKinley, and Neal. 15. Washington: Daniel Jones QB Duke Alex Smith may never play another down in the NFL. Some said this about Luck, but Smith's injury is far more severe and turns 35 in May. Jones had a great Senior Bowl by winning MVP and should be able to take over the Washington offense. 16. Carolina: Montez Sweat DE Mississippi State Had off the field issues in 2016 when he was dismissed from Michigan State, but had a great senior bowl week and had solid interviews. Carolina needs to replace the future HOF Peppers. Sweat is a good add for the EDGE. 17. Cleveland: Devin White ILB LSU Cleveland's offense had a very good year with Mayfield leading the way. However, their defense was not very good. Browns need to add a defensive playmaker like they did last year with Denzel Ward. White is a 3 down LB that makes this defense better. 18. Minnesota: Greg Little OT Mississippi The Vikings need a solid T to give their $83 million QB a better opportunity. Little is an upgrade to their offensive line.  19. Tennessee: D.K. Metcalf WR Mississippi Titans need another WR opposite Corey Davis for Mariota. Metcalf has incredible size for a WR and is a big play threat. 20. Pittsburgh: Mack Wilson ILB Alabama Steelers need to add an ILB to fill the void of Shazier. Wilson will be a good player alongside Vince Williams. 21. Seattle: Byron Murphy CB Washington Seattle adds another CB to their duo of Flowers and Griffin. Murphy is an aggressive CB with good ball skills that will fit in the slot in the Seattle secondary. 22. Baltimore: Marquise Brown WR Oklahoma Ravens need to add a WR for Lamar Jackson to throw to. Crabtree didn't live up to his 3 year/$21 Million contract. John Brown and Willie Snead had decent numbers but can be upgraded. Brown has elite speed and is a dynamic deep threat. 23. Houston: Jawaan Taylor OT Florida Texans gave up the most sacks in the NFL with 62. They are in desperate need of solid pass protectors and Taylor will help bring those sacks allowed down. 24. Oakland: N’Keal Harry WR Arizona State Gruden replaces Amari Cooper with N'Keal Harry. Gruden gets a big WR (6'3" 216 lb) that has great hands combined with elite acceleration and breakaway speed. 25. Philadelphia: Dexter Lawrence DT Clemson Eagles could use a CB as well, but DT is a more pressing need that Lawrence meets. 26. Indianapolis: Dre’Mont Jones DT Ohio State DL is a big need for the Colts. Jones has rare athletic skills such as range and flexibility. Very good pass rush skills. Run defense needs improvement but is a great athletic DT that can rush the QB. 27. Oakland: Josh Jacobs RB Alabama Gruden gets his second offensive toy with Jacobs. Lynch turns 33 and will be a free agent. With Chris Warren III and DeAndre Washington as the only RBs under contract for now, Jacobs is a solid piece to revamp the Raider's rushing attack. 28. LA Chargers: Devin Bush Jr. ILB Michigan DL is also a need, but the Chargers could use more quality LBs. Nwoso had a good finish to the end of the year, but more talent is needed at the position. Bush is on the smaller side at 5'11" 230 lb, but has three down LB skills that are comparable to Devin White. 29. Kansas City: Deandre Baker CB Georgia The Chiefs 31st ranked pass defense needs a solid CB. Baker can come in and be a solid rookie starter for KC. 30. Green Bay: T.J. Hockenson TE Iowa The Jimmy Graham $30 Million experiment is not looking to favorably now for GB, and it's time to give Rodgers a solid, young TE. 31. LA Rams: Jaylon Ferguson DE Louisiana Tech Pairing up Ferguson on the D line with Donald is a great move for the Rams. The FBS all-time sack leader (45 sacks) joins the 2-time DPOY that is coming off a 20.5 sack season. 32. New England: Noah Fant TE Iowa While it's possible that Gronkowski comes back for another season, NE has to look towards the future and draft the successor to the often-injured Gronkowski.

    • It won't be a problem as long as both of them play at a high level. If one falters, then their approach will be looked at with more scrutiny. So lets just hope we can continue to improve. The best thing we can do is play as a team and stay focused. In the end, talent is a big indicator of who wins as well, and Luck and Nelson will be depended on. Coach Reich just has to come up with a gameplan that fits everyone and sell them on it. As long as the team is one unit and plays well, this shouldn't be an issue.
