The good folks at ESPN looked at the most dominant athletes in the past 20 years. Somehow New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady was ranked last.
This is absolutely insane. ESPN writer Peter Keating made a boatload of enemies when he decided to rank New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady last in his list of the most dominant athletes in the last 20 years.
Now some of the rankings are okay. Tiger Woods at #1? No doubt, but there is one glaring mistake. Peyton Manning is ranked 3rd while Brady is ranked dead last at #20.
The article states how ESPN used this great formula to figure out these rankings. I doubt that since the stupid formula can’t do simple math. Brady has 5 Super Bowls while Peyton Manning has 2. Also, he defeated Rex Grossman for one of those, so does it really count?

It is absolutely absurd that Manning is ranked one, so high, and two ahead of Brady. Brady is the best quarterback to ever play the game, nevertheless, this generation.
Brady has thrown for over 66,000 yards and almost 500 touchdowns. Even though he is 40-years-old he continues to improve.
ESPN ranked a race car driver, Michael Schumacher, ahead of Brady. No offense to race car drivers, but basically, every human being could do your job. Now can everyone drive a team 70 yards down the field to win the game in less than a minute? No.
I guess that ESPN is the one winning. Everyone is talking about the list and creating buzz.
There is no doubt that Brady is the most dominant NFL player in the last 20 years. Brady is a first-ballot Hall of Famer. He has been apart of 34 4th quarter comebacks and 42 game winning drives. There is no one who is better at leading his team than Brady.
The fact that Brady is ranked dead last is insane. He should at least be ahead of Peyton Manning. Everyone besides ESPN knows the truth. Tom Brady is the most dominant NFL player in the last 20 years.
