Brady was a brilliant player but he was never the most talented quarterback of his generation. Peyton Manning and Aaron Rodgers had more physical gifts than Brady. We’re not trying to rewrite history but it’s true. Brady was in the right place at the right time and had an incredible work ethic (via NFL.com).
His self-belief and drive helped him to become the most successful quarterback ever. He also was an excellent player as his time in Tampa Bay showed because he brought them to the next level. But Mahomes is the standout quarterback of the modern era. Josh Allen, Joe Burrow, or Lamar Jackson can’t lay a glove on the Texas Tech product.
