I love how it seems like almost each year there's a new "greatest QB of all time". In 2007 people were dead sure Brady was the greatest. And even if he wasn't, people on this board were putting him behind only of Montana. Peyton would be lucky to crack the top five.
Now it's Manning to n# 1 and it's Brady who barely reaches 5.
Give it a year or two and Brees will become the "greatest of all-time".
Peyton Manning has been in the conversation since before he won the Super Bowl. People were comparing him to Marino. He finally won a ring, now is poised for a second one, and will probably be in position for a few more before he retires.
I have never thought Brady should be in the conversation. Yeah he had rings, but his job was to just to not make mistakes. He didnt start putting up great numbers until he got Moss. I dont think Brady is ever going to be the same after that knee injury. It seems like he started to believe and act like he was the greatest, after their 16-0 season, instead of the guy drafted in the 6th round trying to prove himself.
If Brees keeps putting up the numbers, he will be mentioned, but he is going to have to win some rings. Until he does that, he will be there with Marino and Archie Manning.
