    4. Matt Cassel's numbers

    The success of Matt Cassel and the New England Patriots was the cause for great celebration, not only for the faithful Patriot fans, but also for all the truly knowledgeable football fans who see Tom Brady as the luckiest professional athlete of all time.

    The understanding minority that have not been duped by the persistent hype and glorification of this average quarterback finally have the proof that has been overlooked and hidden under the ESPN hoopla.

    Matt Cassel represents the truth. In his first season he threw for 3693 yrds, 21 TDs, completed 63.4% of his passes and boasted a 89.4 QB rating... thats a better QB rating then Tom Brady had for his 1st 3 years STARTING in the league. Actually prior to '07 Brady only put up a better QB rating twice, more yards twice and a better cmp% ONCE!!!

    3. Tom Brady is a system QB

    Systems make teams dominant, not QBs, not star wide receivers. Matt Cassel still needed the Pats defense to be as good as they were four years ago, and then he could have been the next "Hall-of-Fame quarterback."

    Yes, Tom Brady has been on championship teams, but he has not won the championships. He has contributed to the team as a solid leader on offense and completed the tasks he was assigned for the most part. But he was part of the team that won. He didn't win them himself.

    So does that make him the best QB ever? Not even close, says Matt Cassel.

    If Cassel didn't fit the above criteria, why is Brady a hero and Cassel not? Cassel didn't win the Lombardi Trophy because the team wasn't as good as it used to be. But what's with his numbers? How can he pass for 400 yards in a game twice, put up the kind of numbers he did and not be as good or at least compared to Tom Brady?

    If compared to Tom Brady, then why not some of the best QBs of all time? Is it too ridiculous to compare Cassel with John Elway? If so, why not Brady with Elway? Rings?

    Tom Brady would not even be in the league if he had been drafted by the Kansas City Chiefs, Cleveland Browns, or any other team not name the New England Patriots.

    2. Super Bowl 42

    Tom Brady is the most overrated QB of all time and should never be discussed in the same breath as Steve Young, Johnny Unitas, Brett Favre, or John Elway.

    These QBs have had teams built around them and succeeded—their talent is timeless. They all have strong arms and can run with the ball enough to be a threat. They all came through during crunch time and are great leaders on the field.

    Brady has alright arm strength and is a good field leader. However, he lacks mobility like the aforementioned QBs and, although hyped up to be clutch, is found wanting.

    If he kicked the field goals instead of Adam Vinatieri, then I would give him two out of four. However, when Mr. Brady finally experienced an offensive line that didn't dominate the line of scrimmage, he cost the Pats the Super Bowl by missing some key throws late in the third and forth quarters on third down against the New York Giants.

    what about his other SBs??? (see: #1)

    1. Spygate

    One of the biggest and most indisputable pieces of evidence that supports my theory. I meen how hard was it to pick apart defenses when you have illegal footage of their practices and walk-thrus??
    To me, and any other knowledgeable football fan, discredits everything they did prior to '07 and is prolly the main reason they PADDED their stats in '07 in an attempt to prove they were good without the illegal tapes, irony, it seems, had other plans.

    Culpepper is complete shit tho lmao. When peyton had 49 td passes he had a monster wr cast so its safe to say every qb needs weapons. Brady was good b4 moss but got stupid great with him. Brady is overrated by some but to me he still 2nd best qb in league behind peyton. I jus don't get why they act like he top 5 ever already.....

    Brady definitely deserves to be a top 5 QB as of right now,
    but the Patriots have plenty of other weapons and have had mostly a top 10 defense since Brady has been there too,
    Brady didnt have near the weapons back when he won the first super bowl he does now though...
    the year when Bledsoe got injured and the Patriots are 0-2

    he definitely benefits having a really good team around him though alot like Rothliesberger,
    one thing from both of them though is poise to make clutch plays numerous times
    people usually base on whos the best ever in each sport by championships a lot...
    so Roth is damn good also cuz he makes plays and really smart decisions when they really need him to,but just based on championships Roth would be placed up there too...

    and then Marino never won any championships,but if he was on a different team,he had really good WR's at the start,Clayton,Duper....

    definitely at the end of his career at least he didnt seem to have all that much to work with though

    nothin like Brady within the last few years....

    i believe Brady is tops in the league right now cuz of his accuracy,poise and clutch play though....

    Anytime a bum like Matt Cassel can get PT and shine like that, you know it has to do with the system.

    I'm not taking anything away from Tom Brady, he's made some clutch throws and big plays but he's overated.

    He was blessed with an ill defense and now he got weapons galore to work with. Nobody in this thread told Wordz why is logic is flawed at all.
