Tom Brady: The G.O.A.T.

Tom Brady is the best QB of the modern era.

I’m not a Patriots fan, but most people agree that Tom Brady is the best, according to an informal poll conducted at Churchland High School.

He has now won five Super Bowls. Add to that four Super Bowl MVPs.

He's been selected to eleven Pro Bowls and won two league MVP awards. He also led his team to thirteen division titles, the most in NFL history.

He can do anything on the field.

“He broke a lot of records,” said CHS student Derwouye Greene.

This a true statement. If you go to, you can look at all the records he has broken.

Early on this season, Tom Brady was not ranked in the top five QBs because he was suspended for four games. But, he is ranked fourth in career passing yards and fourth in all-time passing TD’s. If he hadn't gotten suspended for four games, he could probably be number one, and his career rankings would be better.

Brady's records are good, but I think they may eventually be broken by young QBs like Kirk Cousins, Andrew Luck, Carson Wentz, and Dak Prescott.

For right now Brady is the best and facts can prove it. He is a future Hall of Famer, but his team always seems to get caught up in scandals. That is why he got suspended for four games.

Drew Brees is ahead of Brady in all-time passing yards and all-time passing TD’s, but Brady has five rings and Drew Brees only has one. Both are good, but Tom has more postseason success than Drew.

This season Brady broke Peyton Manning's all-time win record. And of course won the Super Bowl...again.

I hate Tom Brady but he is still the best QB of the modern era.

Just admit it. He is the G.O.A.T (The Greatest Of All Time).
