Point is though, give Marino et al the defenses, the situations Brady has had, and they all would have just as much success.

I'm not saying lesser QBs have the same success, cos Brady is an excellent QB. But those on the same level, Marino, Manning, Rodgers, Brees with less SB wins would do what he's done. No doubt about it.

Like, the Bucs defence held Mahomes to like 9 points?
One of the most unsung aspects of the 49ers dynasty was their consistently excellent defence. They came up against high-powered in-form offensive machines in their Superbowls. Montana got all the headlines, but it was their defence which laid the foundation for their victories, conceding just 5 touchdowns in 4 games (3 of those in junk time and 1 from a kick return)


1981 - San Francisco 26, Cincinnati 21
49ers Def: #2 in the NFL
Bengals Off: #3 in the NFL

1985 - San Francisco 38, Miami 16
49ers Def: #1 in the NFL
Dolphins Off: #1 in the NFL

1988 - San Francisco 20, Cincinnati 16 <--Bengals only touchdown scored from a kickoff return
49ers Def: #8 in the NFL
Bengals Off: #1 in the NFL

1989 - San Francisco 55, Denver 10
49ers Def: #3 in the NFL
Broncos Off: #8 in the NFL

I agree. Nick Foles deserves more credit for his superbowl win than either Brady or Montana for any of theirs.

Lol. Please, I am sure that THE reasons they give will ALL be the reasons why no one makes that determination that Tom Brady is the greatest based on those things. We already discussed this ad nauseam in the other Brady vs Manning thread.

When deciding the best, you look at them "in a vacuum" as players per se, and how well they would've played under other coaches, with different teams.

All the great players (Brady included) would've excelled in different teams etc. But NOT all in different systems. For instance, Joe Montana was a WCO system QB. He would not have been able to do so well in the Air Coryell. Brady could excel at both tho. Elway, Kelly, Marino, etc, could all have excelled in different systems.

What ends up happening is among all the truly great QBs, people are nitpicking over this or that little thing when trying to put them in some kind of rank. They are all equally great -- as players per se.

Super Bowls are won by teams, it's a team effort.

Barry Sanders is the greatest RB ever and he only played a couple playoffs and never won a Super Bowl. Emmitt Smith was a great RB, durable, etc. But he's not the greatest because he won 3 SBs. On pure talent/ability alone, in a vacuum. The eye test.

Marino is the single greatest QB ever, thruout all the eras of football. No one comes close. Not a single one. The rest, all the true greats, like Brady, Manning, Elway, Staubuch, Starr, Unitas, etc etc....they're all ranked anywhere from 2 down. No one approaches Marino for consummate QB ability, like no one approaches Sanders for consummate RB ability. Or Rice for consummate WR ability.

Of course. Any astute observer/critic would agree.

Brady is the greatest winner, Leader and competitor in NFL history and is also a top 5 QB of all time
That really means he is the true GOAT.

All the salty f***ers on this thread just want to ignore these qualities and blame luck for why he's had the success and others havent.

Aaron Rodgers is by far the superior talent to Brady yet he aint a leaders asshole. GOAT doesnt equal most talented you plebs.
