    I don't think anyone has ever considered Brady to be the best raw talent in football. However at the end of the day the goal of each season is to win a championship and no QB does it more than him. He'll end up going down as the GOAT for that reason alone. And being honest for a second. With the damaged image he has he is going to act as humble as possible. The last thing he probably wants is more people going after his character. I can imagine the ****storm if proclaimed himself the GOAT. Brady might think something entirely different when he is off camera.

    He may very well be. Most talented? no. Best? Maybe

    I would call him the most accomplished. But pound for pound, not the greatest. He had what most of the greatest qb's had, a great coach. Rare guys like Manning did it without a legendary coach. Would Brady have been as successful in a different situation? Very doubtful but you can't take away what he has earned.

    Had Brady played in the earlier decades, with those rules, it's unlikely he would still be playing due to the physical toll on his body. He would have retired years ago and not added a couple more SB titles.
    His stats also wouldn't look as good because the rules back then favored DBs more and QBs weren't protected as much.
    It was a different game in the 60s, 70s and 80s.

    The same could be said for any player in the league. If Rothlisberger, Luck, Newton, etc can't get thru a season in this day & age,.......?

    I'm of the mind that each generation has to be judged on it's own merits.
