It shouldn't be surprising that New England Patriots owner Robert Kraft is a big fan of Tom Brady.

"We're lucky to have the greatest quarterback in history," Kraft told TMZ Sports on Wednesday.

The owner's statement was in response to a question about Brady's own boast from last week. The Patriots quarterback reportedly called himself "the baddest motherf--ker on the planet" in the team's locker room, per Michael Giardi of NFL Network.

While Kraft might be a bit biased toward the player who helped bring him five Super Bowl trophies, it's hard to argue with his assessment.

Brady is heading to his ninth Super Bowl on February 3 and already has three MVPs and 14 Pro Bowl selections on his resume. Adding a sixth title to his collection could help remove any remaining doubt about his greatness.
