14. Montana’s Pick
Joe Montana knows what it means to be an all-time great. The San Francisco icon has a good claim to be the greatest himself. He’s a four-time Super Bowl champion as well as a three-time Super Bowl MVP. However, he admitted in 2021 that Brady’s CV speaks for itself. He didn’t even mention Rodgers in the conversation because he’s not. In short, Brady is on another level.
“I think Tom has taken his place on the top up there a long time ago,” Montana told ESPN (via CBS Sports). “He’s had a tremendous career, he’s fun to watch. Everybody always contests over that, but I think if you look at what Tom has been able to accomplish in his time that he’s played, I think it puts him definitely up there at the top of the list.” Remarkably, a legend like Montana can freely admit this.
