Brett Favre: Tom Brady isn't most talented quarterback, but has 'that it factor'


With the Buccaneers' 31-9 win over the Chiefs in Super Bowl LV, Tom Brady won his seventh title, which is more than any NFL franchise.

The quarterback also won his fifth MVP award as he led Tampa Bay all season long, his first year with the team.

Appearing on SiriusXM NFL Radio Monday, Brett Favre shared his thoughts on Brady where he said he isn't the most talented quarterback, but he has "that it factor" to make everyone around him better.

“I'm speechless," Favre said. "It's never happened, obviously, in our game. And there's no question that the Tampa Bay Buccaneers have a very, very good team and you know, no disrespect to any of the other players, but the missing piece to that puzzle was Tom Brady. Now, if you’d have plugged in a different quarterback of his stature, you know, [Drew] Brees, you know, [Aaron] Rodgers, would that magical season still would have happened? I don't know. I don't know.

"But I think Tom Brady, his leadership, his competitiveness, you know, is he the most talented quarterback? I don't think anyone would say that, but he's got that it factor that you hear people talk about. He just, he makes everyone around him so much better. His competitive nature is as good now as it's ever been. I've said that all season long, that's one of the things that sets him apart.”

Brady finished the regular season third in passing yards (4,633) and second in touchdown passes (40).
