How Do These Quarterbacks Fare Against Tom Brady?

Brett Favre

Although Brett Favre had an NFL record of 30 or more touchdown passes in nine seasons, Tom Brady is simply more careful with the ball. This means that Brady doesn’t make big mistakes in crucial situations. Even if Favre could effortlessly move around in the pocket, kept plays alive, and was good at improvising, he had led the NFL in interceptions three times. Plus, he had six seasons of over 20 interceptions.

Peyton Manning 

Peyton Manning boasts an average of 31 touchdown passes per season. He’s also known for his accuracy because of his 64.9% completed passes in his career. Moreover, he has over 65% completed passes in each season since 2002. 

Although it wasn’t Manning’s fault that his team kept struggling, he failed to make an impression in postseason play with just 29 touchdowns against 19 interceptions.

On the other hand, Brady can only be defined by the word “rings.” He holds six of them, which no NFL player can have anything up against. Brady is not called the greatest quarterback of all time for nothing, and one of the reasons why is because he kept carrying his team to victory

Drew Brees

We all know that Drew Brees has the most yards and highest completion percentage. He is certainly good at being accurate, but Tom Brady is still the best quarterback in the league. 

Aside from having more rings than any player, Brady also has the experience and leadership over Brees. If anything, Brees has a better chance to win the Super Bowl because he has the most complete team against Brady. His defense may not be great, but it can make stops.

Plus, a Super Bowl victory for Brees may help him be one step closer to Brady. Since Brady is getting older, he may be the successor for the title of NFL’s best quarterback. But for now, Brady is still the greatest.

JOHN ELWAY

John Elway was known to make great damage with his arm as well as with his legs. He was often praised for his velocity and for leaving bruises on players after his throws hit them. 

When talking about accomplishments, Elway only completed over 60 percent of his passes three times in his NFL career of 16 years. On the other hand, Brady has never completed fewer than 60 percent wherein he just threw three passes—in a season save for his rookie year. So even though Elway has the mobility, Brady is still the best at accuracy.

Dan Marino 

Dan Marino may be an awesome passer in the regular season, but Tom Brady has been more successful when the stakes are higher. While Marino has a postseason passer rate of 77.1, Brady boasts a rating of 87.6. 

Even though Brady is just starting to get a taste of victories in his career, he already gave the Patriots many achievements that are hard to forget in the history of football.

Final Words 

Tom Brady boasts a record of 6 Super Bowl rings, more than any other NFL player. He has played 9 times in the Super Bowl, where he won six times during his career.
