We’re four days away from Super Bowl LI between the New England Patriots and the Atlanta Falcons. As everyone makes their predictions, Michigan Wolverines head coach Jim Harbaugh decided to praise Tom Brady and for good reason.
“He’s already got it. That’s the point. Tom Brady is the greatest football player to ever play,” Harbaugh said after his Michigan Signing with the Stars event Wednesday. “If you can play that good, that consistently great year-after-year-after-year-after-year, game-after-game-after-game-after-game, nobody’s ever done that.
When looking at his resume, it’s hard to argue this point. Brady is a four-time Super Bowl champion, three-time Super Bowl MVP, and two-time regular season MVP.
If the Patriots win this Sunday, Brady will become the only quarterback in NFL history to win five Super Bowl rings.
“I don’t think he gets the credit that’s due to him,” Harbaugh said. “People compare him to other people. He is the greatest football player of all time and he’s not getting that (credit). That’s his due, and he doesn’t quite get it the way he should.
In football, it’s pretty difficult to name the best player of all-time without breaking them up by position, but Brady makes a stronger case than many.
