There’s no denying the fact that Tom Brady is one of, if not the greatest quarterbacks in NFL history.
No matter how much you may have hated his success on the field, sports fans can’t ignore the rings.
But now one NFL Hall of Fame coach is regretting taking a shot at Tom Brady’s “pretty boy” tag.
The debate over the greatest players in NFL history will always be a point of contention for the media, fans, and former players.
Like most debates in sports, it will be a never-ending debate that will won’t find a resolution as each generation will claim their players were superior until the end of time.
This week Tony Dungy was asked to rank his top “toughest to defend” NFL quarterbacks of all time.
Notably missing from the list was Tom Brady.
There’s no doubt that Dungy knows a thing or two about quarterback play, having won a Super Bowl with Peyton Manning.
But Brady took offense to being left off Dungy’s list and responded with one picture.

In 2014, the Brady-led Patriots defeated the Indianapolis Colts in one of the most lopsided AFC championships, 45-7.
They went on to defeat the Seattle Seahawks in one of the most memorable Super Bowls in history ending with a goal-line interception to seal the game.
You have to admit that’s Hall of Fame level trolling from Brady.
But while many fans acknowledge Brady may be the best to ever play the position, not everyone thinks he should be ranked “tougher” than the quarterbacks on Dungy’s list.
On Shannon Sharpe’s show, Dungy explained his ranking, stating: “Who I put ahead of Tom Brady: Aaron Rodgers, John Elway, Steve Young, guys who could move. Not to say Tom wasn’t great, but that extra dimension meant something to me.”
