Should this surprise any Tom Brady or Buccaneers fans?
The NFL has released their annual list of the top 100 players in the league as voted by the players, and at the top of this year’s list is none other than Tom Brady.
There will always be plenty of debates any time a “top players” list gets released, but the cool thing about this one is that it is done by the players themselves. It isn’t done by fans, analysts, or even coaches. It is done by the players who line up against these guys every single day and know who their most difficult matchups are.
These guys are the experts because they see it on the field and know what they are up against, which, to me, carries a lot more weight than a list created by an analyst or a Tik Tok personality that has never played the game.
For Brady to be at the top of this list at the age of 45 is a really impressive feat, and I think it just speaks to the high level he still plays at and his longevity.
Tom beat out players like Aaron Donald, Aaron Rodgers, Cooper Kupp, and Jonathan Taylor, among others. These players are all considered matchup nightmares, players that the other team has to build their game plan around, and yet the NFL players still feel that there is no bigger nightmare to go up against than Brady.
With all of the chaos that this offseason has brought, I think this just serves as a reminder that we still have the best to ever do it under center, we still have one of the most feared and heavily game planned against quarterbacks in the league, and because of that, along with the rest of our talent on offense, defense, and special teams, we are still a major threat to hoist the Lombardi trophy at the end of this season!
