I don't really listen to many podcasts (or, really, any) but if you have some time to kill, check out the "Let's Go" episode with Brady and Jim Gray from 2/6. Manning was a guest, along with Belichick, and there were a lot of great stories and insight around Brady's retirement. It can be really awesome when these guys sort of let their guard down and speak openly. Good stuff. 

 

 

 

 

I will have to check that out.  

 

On a different note, we went to se "80 for Brady" today.  Lots of laughs. I really enjoyed it.

While there's plenty of animosity between fanbases, that podcast really does show that for the player it's a brotherhood. 

 

For sure. I grew up in the 80s and it reminds me so much of Larry Bird and Magic Johnson. There have been times through the years, as a fan, where I definitely got more riled up than I would have liked, LOL. But at the end of the day, I realize that rivalries are often the best part of sports.

Hey Gramz! It was so interesting, definitely check it out. These guys are clearly pretty tight and it's awesome to see. I haven't seen "80" yet but it's on the list! Hope you and yours are well, happy, and blessed.

Hope you are doing well friend. To me Tom Brady, Joe Montana, and Peyton Manning are the 3 best QB's of all-time hands down and it even isn't close. When you factor in SB wins which Peyton getting that 2nd one was huge, regular season wins (WAR), MVP's, and stats, and by eye test, those 3 just stand out to me. John Elway was amazing too. I am talking SB era. So I left out guys like Graham and Unitas. Unitas did win a SB though but was old by then. 

 

I think Pat Mahomes has a chance to become a top 5 QB of all-time if his career has more longevity. He just won MVP again and has been to 5 straight AFC Title Games and won a SB. He won me $200 last week.

 

I have talked smack over the years about Tom but he is the GOAT, 7 rings but he has the stats to go with it. I just joke about Deflategate, Pats would have beat us regardless. Joe has 4 but doesn't have the stats or MVP's Peyton has so that is close. I know when Tom retired it probably hurt you in a football way, I felt the same way about Peyton eventhough both were on different teams. 

 

Best rivalry's to me are:

Magic vs Bird

Peyton vs Brady

Ali vs Frazier

-probably in that order.

 

My pick for the SB, I am rolling with Pat Mahomes, I like Andy Reid but he does choke a lot in the playoffs like Tony Dungy did but Mahomes wants to join that elite of winning 2 or more SB's as a starter, only 12 have done it. Go Chiefs Amazon Win GIF by NFL On Prime Video

@GoPats, who are your top 5 QB's ever, you are my age and I love your football knowledge.

 

I would say SB era:

1. Tom

2. Joe Montana

3. Peyton 

4. John Elway

5. Aaron Rodgers

- Mahomes is approaching

 

All era's:

1. Tom

 

2. Joe Montana

 

3. Peyton

 

4. Unitas

 

5. John Elway barely over Otto Graham and Aaron Rodgers. 

 

Let me add, I considered Terry Bradshaw because he won 4 SB's but to me it was more his defense that won those. He didn't have the stats the guys I mentioned above either. I hope he is doing well, I heard he was in bad health, great QB and funny guy. Anyone that can win 4 SB's had true game I will say that. He didn't screw up a perfect situation. Bradshaw is top 10. He is like Troy Aikman, Aikman was on loaded teams as well, before free agency.

Steve Young was so great, he was accurate and could run. I have no problem with your opinion on this. He also would have won more SB's had it not been for Dallas having loaded teams. He did win 2 MVP's as well, as many as Joe.

Normally fans link Jerry Rice with Montana but his biggest stats were with Young.  Young is often overlooked in the conversations.

If someone wanted to say Steve Young was top 10 ever that would be really tough to argue. He was great. In the end we have around 15 QB's that could probably be in the GOAT argument. Tom is the most accomplished but Peyton has more MVP's.

    • It wasn't a great season (great would be making the Finals) but I would classify it as a very good one, one reason why is, we overachieved. Making the Final 4 is a very good accomplishment and winning 47 games to stay out of the playin scenario is pretty respectable. We also won a Game 7 at NY in the Semi's which is almost impossible to do no matter who they have out there. They did have Brunson and Divincenzo for that Game 7 for most of the game. Brunson had to leave because of a broken hand late in the 3rd but by then we were up big anyway.    Even though we got swept by Boston, it didn't even really feel like a sweep. We lost both home games without Haliburton by only 3 points and gave away Game 1 losing in OT and that was at Boston. They really only kicked our butt in Game 2.    All in all, we just lost to a slightly better team who has been in the Conference Finals for many years - so their experience in closing games was better.    We need to add 1 more piece and it needs to be someone that just focuses on being physical in the paint defensively and wants to Rebound more than anything. Turner is more of a stretch Center that has a score first mentality, he is a great shot blocker but isn't physical enough when guys come into the paint.   There are 5 levels to basketball: Level 1 - Just making the Playoffs (above average) Level 2 - Winning a Playoff series (good) Level 3 - Winning 2 Playoff series = making the Conference Finals (very good) Level 4 - Winning 3 Playoff series = Winning the Conference (great) Level 5 - Being a World Champion   -We reached Level 3   I won't be a sore loser so I will congratulate @NFLUpand the other Boston fans for winning the East. They are just better as of now.
    • I'm sorry I misstated that it was Saturday that moved him back, IIRC Saturday had stated that Smith would be staying at RT and they were moving Raimann to LT and that's what I am remembering. Still never stated it was a long term plan, I even said it was Reich grasping at straws to try and fix the O-line.   It's the simple argument of someone stating that something never happened, when it had happened. Now you're somehow trying to argue that while trying to put words in my mouth. I never said it was a long term thing. YOU and I are on the same page and the same opinion that he should remain a RT and shouldn't be changed to RG
    • Smith had a career year when he was in there last year on a bad knee.
    • You also said it was Saturday who undid it.  It wasn’t it was Reich the very next game.  That’s what I am pushing back against that this was some long term plan the Colts had.  I think most see the difference in a one game throw something at the wall to see if it sticks because you are desperate vs a long term plan that you are presenting it as.     Dungy also moved Saturday to guard for a playoff game vs the Broncos in 03 does that mean the Colts had thoughts about moving Saturday to guard or was it a one game thing?   It’s also moot now as that coach and oline coach are no longer here and Shane has made it clear since he got here he has no plans of moving Smith to right guard.
    • The argument was that he was never discussed as moving to right guard, that it was only a thing from fans. Well he was in fact moved to right guard by the Reich so it was clearly a thought process that had been discussed by more than just fans as it happened. I then stated that I don't want, nor advocated for him to be moved to RG.   I can try and break this down more if you'd like, but you're trying to argue against me like I am stating an opinion when I am stating a fact instead.
