Tom Brady just won his record-setting seventh Super Bowl.
Brady is widely considered the greatest of all time.
And you won’t believe what one top football analyst said about Tom Brady.
On the Dan Patrick Show NBC football analyst Chris Simms – son of Super Bowl winning New York Giants quarterback Phil Simms – ranked Tom Brady as the tenth best quarterback in the NFL heading into the 2021 season.

On many levels this is understandable.
Tom Brady is entering this season at 44 years old.
This is uncharted territory for the modern day NFL.
In 2020, he had one of the best years of his career throwing 40 touchdown passes – the second best total in his 21 seasons in the NFL –and won another Super Bowl MVP.
Age catches up with every athlete eventually, but Tom Brady’s shown no signs of slowing down.
Athletes tend not to slowly decline, but to fall off a cliff as the ravages of time catch up with their body.
There are younger quarterbacks that put up gaudier numbers, but if teams had one game to win and could pick any quarterback in the league it’s hard to see how most would not choose Tom Brady over everyone else.
