Hard disagree. From talent perspective, are their guys better? Maybe.

But 6 rings with the Pats, 1 with the Bucs, All time passing yards and td leader, most wins… no one comes close to this resume.

GOAT QB and it’s really hard to have a legit argument against him.
Otto Graham played for 10 years, won 7 championships and played in and lost 3 others.

Counting rings is an extremely poor way to determine the best. Too many factors to limit your thoughts to just one.

If Montana had played in this era where they couldn't cream the QB, he'd have won more than Brady.

You absolutely cannot compare players using stats between eras. C'mooon, you know that.

Same can be said of a lot of great QBs. Brady landed in the perfect situation during the perfect time. He was a great player at his position at a time when the league was bending over backward to make it easier to play his position and when free agency and the salary cap were ensuring that defenses could never maintain the level of consistent excellence to challenge him. It reminds me of the reverence with which people hold Michael Jordan and his 6-0 record in the NBA finals. Clearly he and his teams were great.. but they won absolutely nothing until the Lakers, Celtics and Pistons, the great teams of the 80's all go old. I wonder how many championships Jordan and his Bulls win if he and Pippen were born 5 years earlier? Of if Bird, Parish, Magic, Kareem, Isaiah, Dumars, Worthy et al were born 5 years later?
