Who is the Best Quarterback of All Time? Tom Brady, Joe Montana, Peyton Manning?
There are many different quarterbacks that have played in the NFL, but this is a clash between 3 quarterbacks that are arguably the best QB of all time. Tom Brady, Joe Montana and Peyton Manning. Who do you have winning?
At the time of writing this article, Tom Brady is still active in the NFL. He has made it to the Superbowl in 50% of his active years in the NFL, is that even possible? Brady won the AFC East division in 15 out of his 16 years that he has been in the league. This just tells me one thing and that is Brady just knows how to win. One of his most notable wins was in the 2017 Superbowl, Patriots vs Falcons. By halftime you would have thought that the Patriots were done and Falcons were going to win easily, then the unthinkable happened. Brady mustered 31 unanswered points to come back from a 28 point deficit to win the championship to obtain his 5th ring.
Postseason is where you face the best of the best and Tom Brady is always there in the postseason and having success against those teams. Having the most appearances in the Superbowl, most Superbowl wins, and Superbowl MVP’s. Brady also leads in post season passing yards, completions, touchdown passes, and wins. Tom Brady to me is the GOAT, and the fact that his career is still not over and he is still playing and has a chance at improving his stats and maybe win some more championships.
Joe Montana was a great quarterback in his time, Montana has a 100% winning percentage if he makes it to the Superbowl. He won 4 out of 4 Superbowls, and threw zero interceptions while winning, that is impressive. Joe Montana held a great Superbowl comeback win in Superbowl history against the Bengals until Tom Brady erased a 28 point deficit to score 31 unanswered points to win the championship. Lets compare some stats, Joe has 4 Superbowl rings, with 3 Superbowl MVP’s which is second best only behind Tom Brady.
Unlike the previous two quarterbacks that we talked about previously, Peyton Manning could have an argument to be the best in his own right. Peyton Manning was a mastermind at the line, he is known for always reading defenses and changing plays on the fly. His favorite word might have been “Omaha”, that is the most known play call disguise known by Manning. It is safe to say that Tom Brady is a system quarterback and Peyton Manning was the system. Manning only won 2 Superbowl championships, but that doesn’t take away from what he did on the field.
The winner in my decision is Tom Brady, who do you think is the best? Is there another quarterback that can dethrone these guys? Dan Marino, Brett Farve, John Elway, Drew Brees, Aaron Rodgers, and Steve Young can also be in the talks right behind them.
