I think when the New England Patriots traded away Randy Moss this yea,r everyone wrote them off and questioned both Bill Belichick's decisions and if Tom Brady would ever return to a Super Bowl or throw up good numbers.

How is a passing rating of 111.0, 65.9 completion percentage, 3,900 yards, 36 TD's and four INT's? No, everyone that is not a mistake, FOUR INTERCEPTIONS IN 16 GAMES!

This guy is a born winner and a born quarterback. 

Soon to be two time NFL MVP after that amazing season, and set for another Super Bowl run, the question is: Is he the best quarterback EVER?

I am a huge New England fan—a die hard season ticket holder—so if this is being bias, please do speak up, but I am just here to tell my side of the story.

Tom Brady has three Super Bowl rings and been to four Super Bowls.

Brady also has two Super Bowl MVP's and on his way to his second NFL MVP awards.

Brady is 111-36 in his career as a starting QB for the New England Patriots, and has 32 game winning drives for the Pats in that span.

Brady also has many personal records, such as most TD's in a season (50), most completions in a Super Bowl (32), most career Super Bowl completions (100 in four games), highest completion percentage in a playoff game ever (26 of 28, 92.9 percent), and most recently, the amazing 319 passes in a row without a pick (Oct 2010-present).

These are just a few examples.

The biggest argument that I've heard on this topic would be that Montana has four rings and Brady only has three.

So let me ask everyone this, if Brady gets his fourth, is he hands-down the best QB that ever lived?
