No. 2: Tom Brady Will Never Surpass Joe Montana as the Best Quarterback
Despite what New England Patriots fans and many other NFL analysts might say, Tom Brady will never be the best quarterback to ever play the game.
That distinction falls on Hall of Famer Joe Montana.
Sure, Brady has hoisted more Super Bowl trophies, has had a longer career, has thrown for more yards and so on. But Brady has also lost Super Bowls. And he’s made critical mistakes in them too.
Montana’s win-loss record in the game of games? 4-0.
And there’s another zero number in the Montana versus Brady argument — interceptions thrown in the Super Bowl. Let us help you figure it out if you weren’t sure who never tossed a Super Bowl pick. Brady has done so five times.
We’ve made this argument already. And it sure made some Pats fans mad, but who cares?
All a Niners fan needs to do is point out Montana’s 127.8 Super Bowl passer rating. Brady’s is good — 95.3 — but Montana’s is straight up untouchable.
