Philip Rivers decided to bash New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady and dare question if Brady is the greatest quarterback of all time.
Philip Rivers has been dominated by the New England Patriots for his entire career. It sounds like the quarterback is a little salty.
Now we all know that Tom Brady is the greatest quarterback of all time. The man has won 6 Super Bowl’s. You know who else has done that? No one.

Brady is the most dominant quarterback to play the game and I don’t think he is done yet. He may even win another Super Bowl ring before he retires.
Rivers has yet to win a Super Bowl. He has been stuck in mediocrity with the Chargers who have never been able to make it to the promised land.
For some reason, Rivers wants to discount Brady’s Super Bowl wins and question his status as the greatest quarterback of all time.
“I remember thinking when the Patriots beat the Seahawks, when they had that interception against the Seahawks down [on the goal line] and that gave them what, their [fourth] championship?” Rivers said. “You know everyone said, ‘Well, he’s now the greatest of all time.’ And I thought to myself, I already thought he was already one of [the greatest] — I mean, how do you ever decide that? It’s like the old Michael Jordan [debate], right? We could talk about that forever, too — but I already thought he was already one of the greatest of all-time, but because they intercepted the pass, he’s now the greatest of all time? What if the Seahawks were to run it in? And the Seahawks were to have won? Brady would have just played the exact same game. He didn’t do anything different, you know?”
“It is funny how that works, so I don’t look at that [Super Bowl wins],” Rivers said.
I don’t know how you can not take into account a quarterback’s Super Bowl win. This shows that when the moment matters a quarterback is able to lead his team to victory.
Sometimes the Super Bowl can become too big for a quarterback. They will shrivel up and fail to win the game.
When you combine Brady’s ability to win games no matter the obstacle and his Super Bowl victories it is clear that he is the best quarterback of all time. I don’t know what Phillip Rivers was thinking.
