Tom Brady to Take Currently Vacant Title of ‘Greatest NFL Player Ever’ With Another Super Bowl Win, Two More MVPs (Video)

Baseball has Babe Ruth. Basketball has Michael Jordan. Hockey has Wayne Gretzky (or Bobby Orr, if you’re from this neck of the woods).

All the major sports have a more or less undisputed “Greatest Player Ever” — except football. While the voting would not be unanimous if it were put to a poll, Ruth, Jordan and Gretzky would dominate the discussion.

Football’s different. Jim Brown, Otto Graham, Johnny Unitas, Lawrence Taylor and dozens of others have taken a claim to the title of “greatest ever” at some point, depending on one’s preference. It’s difficult to say whether Joe Montana was greater as a quarterback than Walter Payton was as a running back.

In a few years, though, this debate might be cleared up. On Dennis & Callahan, Gerry Callahan noted that with another Super Bowl win and maybe a couple more Most Valuable Player awards, Patriots quarterback Tom Brady will hold a reasonable claim to the title of “greatest ever.”

Check out the video above to hear Callahan’s reasoning.
