The weak link? You're kidding, right?

Brady did say he wants #37 Keith Tandy Youth Jersey to go out his way, which is another way of telling people he doesn't want to be traded or cut by coach Bill Belichick, or run out of town by the news media or the fans. But the dimpled leading man knows how this movie usually ends. Jordan and Babe Ruth, signature athletes of the 20th century, finished their careers as severely diminished icons in the unworthy colors of the Washington Wizards and Boston Braves before being forced out by their bosses, Abe Pollin and Emil Fuchs, respectively. Joe Montana, Brady's boyhood idol, was dealt to the Kansas City Chiefs so the San Francisco 49ers could clear room for Steve Young. Montana had been motivated by Young's presence, and openly annoyed by it, too. Brady was asked if he is annoyed Belichick hasn't traded Jimmy Garoppolo, a second-round pick in 2014, keeping alive the possibility -- however remote -- that the Authentic Jason Castro #21 Womens Patriots might dispatch Brady in the not-too-distant future to make Garoppolo their Steve Young. "When you're a member of a team sport, the best guy plays," Brady said. "So I always want to make sure I'm the best guy, and I give our team a great chance to win. But if you're ever not [the best guy], part of being a great teammate is letting the other guy do that, as well. Competition is what has always driven me. I've never been one that was hand selected, to be this particular player. ... In high school, college, professionally, I think the greater the competition, the more that it really allows me to dig deep and bring the best out of me."
For those old enough to remember, his response sounded like something that might've been said by Jordan, the self-described competition junkie who never met a real or imagined slight he wouldn't use to his advantage while winning six titles with the Chicago Bulls. And this is where Brady's last great challenge begins to take shape. His staggering comeback victory over the Atlanta Falcons in Super Bowl LI ended the debate over whether he's a better quarterback than Montana (5-4 in rings, 7-4 in conference championships, 208-133 in regular-season and postseason victories) and whether he's the best NFL player ever. Brady overwhelms Jim Brown with sheer volume (271 games played and counting to Brown's 122). Ditto for Lawrence Taylor (199 games played). If Jerry Rice wins on that front (332 games), Brady, the once-loyal Niners fan, could remind you (not that he would) that Montana had already won two rings before Rice was drafted.So Brady was asked the following question: If you're not the best NFL player ever, who is? His pause was so long you could've counted Authentic Josh Lambo Womens Jersey one Miss-iss-ippi, two Miss-iss-ippi, three Miss-iss-ippi before he finally responded."I don't remember a lot of those guys like Jim Brown playing," Brady said. "I remember Lawrence Taylor, obviously; he terrorized the 49ers. ... I know that I haven't played against a lot of those guys, but I've also played against a lot of guys that when I think of Peyton Manning and Marvin Harrison and Dwight Freeney and Jason Taylor and Ray Lewis and Ed Reed and Darrelle Revis -- if those guys aren't the best, then whoever is better than them is only better by percentage points. It's not a big difference. So, like Deion Sanders, for example. I remember watching him play, how spectacular he was. But I can't imagine someone that much better than Revis. If there were, you couldn't complete a ball against Darrelle. So completing a ball against Deion is not much different than completing a ball against Darrelle."Brady was asked if he'd at least concede what his Madden title stated -- that he has replaced Montana as the GOAT of quarterbacks.
"I don't agree with that," he said, "and I'll tell you why. I know myself as a player. I'm really a product of what I've been around, who I was coached by, what I played against, in the era I played in. I really believe if a lot of people were in my shoes they could accomplish the same kinds of things. So I've been very fortunate. ... I don't ever want to be the weak link.""I was the backup quarterback on an 0-8 team in my freshman year of high school," Brady continued. "I got to Michigan, I was seventh [string], and I had a hard time getting to be No. 2, and when I finally got to No. 1 there was someone else [Drew Henson] they wanted to be No. 1. I got to be a sixth-round pick behind a great player, Drew Bledsoe, and then I got an opportunity, and I'm still trying to take advantage of it. Part of who I am now is very much who I was, and that was cultivated growing up."
