brady overrated? hah....good one......if it wasn't for that silly once-in-a-lifetime catch by Tyree in the SB, Brady would be a 4-time SB champion, leading his team to a 19-0 record while throwing for a league record 50 TD's.
The three super bowls wins were all by the skin of their teeth and Brady didn't play great in any of the wins. People can say what they want but he is and never will be Joe Montana.
He is a great player, there is no arguing that ... but to proclaim him the "best QB ever" is absolutely ridiculous. People wanna cry about the Tyree "fluke" play ... how about the tuck rule vs Oakland ... or the fact that Vinatieri, not Brady, is the one that performed with the game on the line. His playoff record is around .500 since their last SB win. 3 SB wins by what, 9 points? [I know they count, obviously, but these games could've just as easily been 3 losses] ... and they haven't won one since "Spygate". I laugh when some people still mention their "dynasty" ... it's been over for 8 years.
and for all the love he gets for being so clutch/calm in the pocket, he's incredibly easy to rattle after a few hits. All he does is yell at the OL and cry to the refs ... it's actually quite fun to watch [especially when it's the Giants smacking him around].
Great player. Future HOFer. Best ever? No.
