At 40 years old, New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady continues to dominate the league making a believer out of one NFL great. 

An MVP candidate at the age of 40, New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady continues to turn non-believers into believers.

The clutch quarterback is entering the playoffs looking for his sixty Super Bowl victory and with the way he has played this season, former NFL quarterback Brett Farve has now put Brady on top of his list of all-time great quarterbacks.

Yes, even above Joe Montana.

Appearing on the “Rich Eisen Show,” Farve made his admission, giving TB12 the nod over Montana due to his ability to elevate the players on the field around him.

"“I was not surprised by anything – now or in the future – that Tom does,” Farve told Eisen.  “I never thought I’d say that somebody was better than Joe Montana, but Joe Montana’s always been the best quarterback that I’ve ever seen, and Tom has surpassed that.  And not taking anything away from Joe, Tom just gets better, you know, regardless of who is in there playing with him, which it’s hard to find chemistry when you’re plugging guys in there.”"

Farve went on to praise Brady’s consistency and doesn’t see him falling off anytime soon. He also gave Brady and the New England Patriots a great chance to repeat as Super Bowl champions.

Sounds sweet coming from a three-time NFL MVP and a man who knows what it’s like to play into his 40s.

Tom vs. Time

Speaking of age, Tom Brady is giving Patriots fans insight into his life off the field.

In the six-part docu-series, “Tom vs Time,” Brady gives viewers access into his home, a look at his offseason routine, as well as how he interacts with his family.  It is definitely a documentary that will inspire viewers that age is nothing but a number, especially coming from a 5-time Super Bowl champion who continues to play at a high level at the age of 40.

In the documentary that will air on Facebook Watch, Brady says in the trailer:

"“What are you willing to do and what are you willing to give up to be the best you can be? You only have so much energy and the clock ticks on all of us.  If you’re going to compete against me, you better be willing to give up your life because I’m giving up mine.”"

As Patriots fans have seen Tom Brady leave his all on the field over the past 18 NFL seasons, the timing of the release of the documentary series is interesting.
