Tom Brady is the best quarterback in the NFL right now. With a team full of no-names, he makes them into superstars. Who is Wes Welker, Rob Gronkowski, Deion Branch or Danny Woodhead without Brady?
He places the ball in the perfect seam on almost every single throw. He knows more about the game of football than the game knows about itself (if that makes sense...). He is his own coach of this football team, and he makes the decisions.
Bill Belichick is a great coach and has an extraordinary QB on his hands. If I was a coach or a player on any team, I would want him throwing me the ball. The chemistry he shares with his receivers, and team as a whole, is unimaginable.
Brady has won three Super Bowls (XXXVI, XXXVIII, XXXIX), and played in a fourth losing to the New York Giants (XLII) after going 16-0 into the playoffs. Brady has won the Super Bowl MVP twice and has been selected to six Pro Bowls in his playing career so far. He has also won two NFL MVP awards.
Overall, Tom Brady has many awards and accomplishments, but it is his pure talent and charisma that makes him the No. 1 quarterback in the NFL today.
