Everybody debates who the best quarterback is in NFL history. Some will say Joe Montana, some say John Elway, our generation may say Aaron Rodgers, and many will say Tom Brady. But it seems that year in and year out Brady has to fight for that “best ever” label.
Former New England Patriots safety Lawyer Milloy joined me and guest co-host Erik Coleman on The Jake Brown Show on Play.it. Well, we actually surprised Milloy mid-show with the unexpected phone call. Milloy played with Brady and was a big part of Brady’s first Super Bowl title in 2002. Milloy isn’t about to debate who is the best QB ever, because the answer is easy.
“I think he’s already the best,” said Milloy. “What else does he have to prove, does he have to prove himself every year? The one thing about being successful in general not just football is once you become successful how do you reinvent yourself year after year and there’s nobody else in the NFL history that’s done it as he has, it’s really incredible that he’s going to be starting in his seventh Super Bowl in 17 years. There’s a lot of even Hall of Fame players that didn’t even reach that stage and he has a chance to go after his fifth championship.”
Milloy also broke down the Super Bowl and how he thinks it will play out.
“I think it’s gonna be a good game, I think both teams are obviously the best two teams in the NFL and their respective conferences. I really like what Atlanta’s doing on both sides of the ball, they’re young, they have talent at every position, they have depth. But, the Patriots always seem to find a way in big games to not only compete but to win. The one thing about Belichick is that he’s gonna take out the best threat to the team or their best player, but the problem is that the Atlanta Falcons have more than one guy that can win a ballgame and they have a quarterback that is giving it to the open guy not just one guy so it’s a big challenge.”
