Winning Is Everything
In sports, if you’re not first, then you might as well be last. Winning is what counts, and no one remembers the losers, no matter how well they play. The history books remember winners, and Tom Brady is out on his own for Super Bowl rings. The New England Patriots icon has won a total of six Super Bowls, meaning he needs two hands to fit all of his rings on. That’s more than any other player in the history of football and puts him at the number one spot.
Brady isn’t the most impressive player to watch, and his statistics don’t suggest he is either. He doesn’t throw the farthest or have the most completed passes, but what gets him through games, and championships, is his brain. Brady has always been a smart player, and his ability to see what’s happening on the field sets him apart.
He can run the game with ease and can change up his strategies whenever he needs to. Brady is sharp and can figure out when the opposing defense is changing their tactics. The only stat that matters shows that Brady’s the best because he’s won the most. Not only Super Bowls, but Brady has the most regular-season victories with 207.
For many years Joe Montana was seen as the one quarterback that all others had to measure up against. Brady has overshadowed the great Montana and is now the man everyone is aiming to become.
