Tom Brady, in the eyes of New England Patriots’ fans, is not only the greatest quarterback in NFL history, he’s the greatest player in league history after leading the Patriots to five Super Bowl titles and eight AFC championships. In the process, Brady has won a record four Super Bowl MVP awards while also winning three regular season MVP awards. Brady is also fourth all-time 68,035 passing yards and third with 504 passing touchdowns. Brady also has the most regular season and postseason victories by a starting quarterback in NFL history. And while most quarterbacks see their skills start to diminish as they approach the age of 40, Brady, 41, is still playing at an all-time level in this, his 19th NFL season.
While his list of achievements may not be able to match Brady’s, Terry Bradshaw’s resume is pretty stacked, too. The No. 1 overall pick in the 1970 NFL draft, Bradshaw helped guide the Pittsburgh Steelers to a record four Super Bowl titles in a six-year span during the 1970s. Bradshaw, the 1978 NFL MVP, won Super Bowl MVP honors in consecutive years while leading Pittsburgh to victories over the Dallas Cowboys and Los Angeles Rams. Facing the vaunted “Doomsday Defense” in Super Bowl XIII, Bradshaw set then Super Bowl passing records with 318 yards and four touchdowns in Pittsburgh’s 35-31 victory. A first ballot member of the Pro Football Hall of Fame, Bradshaw is one of five quarterbacks in league history to have won at least four Super Bowl titles. He is one of just two quarterbacks (Joe Montana) to go 4-0 in Super Bowl competition.
