    With his fourth TD pass today and 559th of his career, Tom Brady passed Drew Brees for most TD passes of all time. This should go back and forth, maybe, for a while as Brees has 558 TD passes.
    Amazing Brady doesn't have his own thread here.

    Every time football is brought up to me I bring up Tom Brady. I make sure to say that Brady is the greatest football player of all time. I marvel that he is still playing at a high level at his age.

    I can tell that some of the people I say this to don't like me saying this. They apparently think you should only praise black players, which is what they do.

    The thing is they can't say anything in response. Because it's true. Brady is the greatest player of all time.

    Since he is a QB, the most important position on a football team, you could say Tom Brady is the most significant football player of all time.

    Tom Brady is not only the most significant player of all time he is the greatest player of all time. If there was a draft of every football player who ever played and I had the number one overall pick I'm taking Brady.

    So tell me sport historian, who do you think is the greatest football player of all time?

    A question that takes some qualification. Football historians have usually rated quarterbacks apart from other players. They have always preferred running backs as "the greatest player in the game" to quarterbacks. Several years ago Jerry Rice was christened the Greatest Football Player of All Time. Before that Jim Brown was generally given that title. Rice got the title in large part due to longevity since Brown had "only" nine years. Pass receivers had never been considered "the greatest" before, Don Hutson came closest.

    Tom Brady has played the most important position better than anybody else longer than anybody else. You could argue Brady was a better QB than Rice was a WR for an even longer period of time. Since Tom Brady is playing at top level at age 44, I would say he is now the Greatest Football Player of All Time.

    This is my own historical perspective.

    It's a factual perspective. Anyone with a knowledge of the game and is truly honest (and that's a tall order nowadays) will conclude Brady is the greatest football player of all time. It's really not even close.

    Brady, at this point, is the equivalent of Wayne Gretzky - the unquestioned greatest of his sport.

    And doing it here and now in the Caste NFL, what an accomplishment, a legacy that will likely never be equaled

    Any historical perspective I give is intended to be factual.

    One thing about Don Hutson that always intrigued me is that he did not run off to join the military to save Joe Stalin and he retired in 1945, and no one ever mentions that. Not that I care I don't denigrate anyone except communists and their simps, and I'm from a family where WWII was the pinnacle of America and they were all Wisconites and Packers fans. Reason I mention this is that the media builds a person up and tears a person down and I assume given time Hutson along with his teammate Bear Bryant will start getting nibbled on by the remoras of ClownWorld, and since I have an active imagination I don't think Vince Lombardi will escape a thrashing.
