NBC analyst and former NFL backup QB Chris Simms recently felt the wrath of Patriot Nation – and most objective observers -- when he had the audacity (stupidity?) to rank Tom Brady as the ninth-best quarterback in football.
Now, NFL.com has put together a more in-depth ranking of the greatest quarterbacks in NFL history. Not surprisingly to most, Brady came in at No. 1 overall. TB12 earned the top spot thanks to his six Super Bowl rings as well as endless statistical landmarks. It all pushed him to GOAT status, one spot in front of his own childhood hero, former 49ers great Joe Montana.
