Tom Brady: An undeniable competitor
There’s a certain sense of winning that comes when special people come to play their games. Michael Jordan, Larry Bird, The Great Gretzky, John McEnroe (no wait, that’s tennis, not a team sport)—the people who play the game, but with a style that seems to outshine the sun. Go ahead, add some more players; I know you know some and likely more than me.

I realized then that Tom Brady was a great quarterback because of what he brought to the team, aside from intellect and talent. He brought the ability to make everyone around him better. Arians had a front-row seat as the spectacle that is the 2020 Buccaneers unfolded.
He sat in the middle as Tom Brady taught the team how to be professionals and how to win football games. His enthusiasm, his perfectionism, his unwillingness to let anything slip.
“Can you give me the phone numbers of all the players,” he asked Jason Licht as they closed the deal to make Brady a Buccaneer. “We don’t have a minute to waste.”
Go Tom. The GOAT, for sure, regardless of the results, come February 7, 2021. Sorry, Joe, but records are meant to be broken, and stars are marks in the sky for the next player to aspire to. Now, Tom is setting it. Who will eclipse him -Patrick Mahomes? Your guess is as good as mine, but for now, mine is with TB-Tommy.
