The... GOAT?  The Generalized Occupational Aptitude Test?
I always get either scientist or the laundry cannon operator.  I think it is because I do not know baseball well, and always take the soccer option.

Now go ask Otto Graham, Johnny Unitas, and Sammy Baugh.  Guys who didn't get the benefit of a flag every time a defender looked at them mean.

I know, it's hard to remember a time before he had the refs wrapped around his finger.

We just have to go with the metrics we have. I always thought Marino was the best actual quarterback. But not winning a single superbowl punts you on down the list. Brady is the best at winning. I don't think he is really an exceptional athlete, though.

Marino was definitely more entertaining. You almost wanted the phins to get down a couple of touchdowns so Marino could start the aerial assault. Brady has more 4th quarter comebacks, but he isn't nearly as much fun to watch.

Montana played before the salary cap and the Niners spent big. Before the salary cap took effect, they front loaded a lot of salaries for veteran players. Other teams also did this, but the point being, Montana had a lot of help. He did point out John Candy on the sideline during a huddle in the superb owl. Have to give him credit for that.

Marino lost 62-7 to the Jaguars in his final game. It was a fitting end to a loser career.

I grew up in a household where my dad was a Pats fan since 1960 because he grew up in Mass. My mom is from Palm Beach so she is a Dolphins fan. I grew up during the Marino years, my mother tormented my father and I as Pats fans.

Dan Marino should die of gonorrhea and rot in hell.

You didn't see Boomer Esiason mentioned there either. What's your point?

Brady isn't physically great (by NFL player standards he isn't particularly strong or fast). He isn't nearly the most skilled quarterback (he never threw the hardest or the most accurately). He isn't the smartest quarterback.

But everything I have seen says that he is one of the most driven and hardest working players in the sport and he has been able to leverage his tools to do what is needed week in, week out for twenty years. That is what makes him the greatest.
