Case 1 He beat Buffalo in Buffalo. Buffalo beat Cincinnati, who beat Jacksonville who beat Seattle. Therefore Tom Brady is better than Shawn Alexander. Case 2 He beat New Orleans, who lost to the Giants who lost to the Vikings. Tiki Barber couldn't overcome 3 returns for touchdowns against the Vikings ? Brady is better. Case 3 He was 3-6 against teams with winning records. Compare that to Jake Plummer's 7-3, and Manning's going 5-0 against AFC playoff teams. Now, Brady beat Miami who beat Denver, so Brady's better. He beat the Jets who beat Buffalo, who beat Cincinnati who beat Jacksonville who lost to the Colts who lost to the Chargers who lost to Miami who lost to the Patriots. So Brady is better. Case 4 Tedy Bruschi came back Case 5 Of the 6 games the Patriots lost, they gave up 27, 41, 40, 26, 28 and 28 points. That means Brady had no defense. Now, the fact that the Patriots only averaged 19 points during those losses doesn't diminsh the fact that any other QB would have lost by more than a 31-19 margin. So, Brady is better. Case 6 He beat the two most overrated teams before the rest of the league thought they were overrated. Oakland and Atlanta. Therefore he's better because those teams were considered good at the time. Isn't this fun ? Final Case Without him they wouldn't be 3-6 against teams with a winning record. Without him, don't know if they could have beaten New Orleans or the Jets. He's my choice.
