    Well, I wokeup about a half an hour ago to go tuna fishing, and needed some entertainment to enjoy my coffee's to. After seeing the ad for that text message answer service, I decided to look up all the records that he has. It is staggering.

    Most consecutive regular season wins.
    Most consecutive post season wins.
    Most completed super bowl passes.
    Highest superbowl completion percentage.
    Most career superbowl completions.
    Highest completion percentage in a single game.
    Highest completion percentage in a single post season game.
    Most passing yards, single season.
    Most TD passes, single season.

    Frankly, I think his most impressive records are the ones closest to the top of the list. Still, it is amazing that a single player can dominate every meaningful quarterback statistic there is. Really puts his greatness in perspective, doesn't it?

    He is also one win away from having the highest winning percentage in NFL history.

    Phil Simms has the highest single game SB completion percentage.
    Troy Aikman has the highest career SB completion percentage.

    Well, so how big is the list now? lol
    Imho, had he led a drive at the end of 43, and/or sealed the win against the Dolts in 2006, we wouldn't even have to listen to the name Peyton Manning, or Eli for that matter.

    TfB is still the man in my book though.

    Brady's greatness and his ticket to Canton come from taking his team to five Conference Championships and winning three of the four SB's they made. Until he had the weapons around him that he was given in 2007, he was not placed in the upper echelon of all time QB's because of his Regular Season, Individual Stats (which is not to say that they aren't impressive).

    It will be very interesting to see what kind of career numbers he puts up if he remains healthy and continues to have the likes of Moss and Welker catching his passes. From the latter perspective, it's a damn shame he lost last season and that 2011 is threatened by a strike; that would mean he lost two of his potentially most productive years. I think the argument can be made that with the right talent around him, his career individual numbers would rival Peyton's.

    Well... that too. But it's mostly because of the system. Everyone knows that. We could put Verne Troyer in there and he'd probably throw 78 TD passes in a year because of how awesome this system is.

    On a serious note, it's always funny having the "system" discussion with a Pats hater. They spew out this garbage that Brady is a system quarterback then, when challenged, they cannot even tell you what the hell it means. I always found it to be the easiest debate to have with a Pats hater.

    "He's a system quarterback".

    "Oh yeah? What does that even mean? Please explain the system to me"

    "He's just a system quarterback. Anybody can succeed in it".

    "Yes, but how does the system work and how can does it help Brady be a great passer and throw 50 TDs in a season?"

    ...no answer, thread falls to page 2.

    The system thing is great. If a system can turn ANY QB into a winner (Cassel, 11-5), Bill needs to market that shtuff!

    Of course the WHOLE system is one that plays to each players strengths while expecting them to improve. But that should be basic football right there...

    Tom Brady does everything imaginable that you'd want a quarterback to do, so I don't know how anyone besides idiotic Patriot haters that could even argue that he's not just a great quarterback, but a legendary quarterback. Brady is amazing.

    It is, but not everyone has the talent or intelligence to figure out how to do it..

    He was amazing, but this year he's pretty pedestrian.

    I think he'll get better as the season moves on. Hope so anyway. I think Moss is tired of being overthrown.

    Kind of like Peyton last year at the same time, just coming off knee surgery and a year out of the game (no wait he didn't miss a season did he)?

    As for Moss - just how many times has he been overthrown? As far as I can see he has a great relationship with TFB and will be more than patient as the rust continues to disappear. I am not expecting 07 fireworks anyway, that was then and the team is different and their bodies are not the same as they were.

    If TFB does return to elite form though I am not expecting him to be NFL MVP - as according to King it's Peyton's to lose :rolleyes:

    So, the NFL MVP is like a Colts playoff game.

    I think the single most impressive record he holds is TD/INT ratio.

    His 201 TD to ony 88 INT is the best TD/INT ratio of all time. Those numbers are just INSANE

    Yeah seriously, the pats d shuts down Eli, or Tyree doesn't make that catch, Brady is consensus #1 greatest QB ever period. Sucks things didn't work out that way

    Amazing how people forget how great he was and is still. Guess we're not going to repost the "Should we trade Brady and keep Cassel" anymore.:cool:

    I just like him for the QB sneak, then they should take him out.

    Oh yeah, he's pretty good in OT too, 7-0 I think ? Put him in for OT.

    "Brady is consensus #1 greatest QB ever period" - I doubt you would ever get a consensus of football fans to say Brady is the greatest of all time even if we had beaten the Giants in the SB. Joe Montana has some die hard fans and awesome SB stats. People can criticize the "D" that day but Tom and the offense waited until the most important game of the year to score their lowest point total of 14.

    yeah, thank goodness the giants didn't put their D on the field or it might have been a shut out. :D
