The players of the NFL voted Tom Brady of the Tampa Bay Buccaneers as the best in the game. They are right to fear the Buccaneers quarterback.

Tom Brady has done it again. When it comes to sports, just about all countdowns and lists are essentially useless save for the fact that they get people talking. It’s all just water cooler talk as they say. No list completely objective, as there’s always opinions that go into them, and there is never one that’s 100% correct.

That all being said, the NFL’s annual top 100 players countdown is voted on by the players, so in a way, it’s the most credible sports countdown that you’re likely to find out there. That’s probably why discussions get so heated when it’s unveiled. Deep down people know that the players are the ones playing the game, and probably would know just how good their fellow peers are more than anyone.

For the 2022 edition, the players knocked the ranking out of the park. For a record fourth time, the players of the NFL voted Brady as the number one player in the entire league. It is just another notch on the accomplishment belt for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers quarterback.

It’s honestly just laughable at this point. They call him the GOAT, and there really isn’t any discussion about it. As previously alluded to, people will debate sports topics until the cows come home, but with Brady, there really is none. He is simply the best.

The players were absolutely right to put respect, and fear, on Tom Brady’s name.

It’s no secret that Brady is the most competitive human being on the planet. A big reason for that, and his success, is that he finds bulletin board material out of pretty much everything. With this, his opponents give him one less thing to motivate him. It’s not a great plan, but better than nothing.

In all sincerity, the fact that Brady accomplished this again is nothing sort of remarkable. He’s 45 years old, and coming off of a season where he lead the league throwing for 5,316 yards and 43 touchdowns, and getting robbed of the MVP. Perhaps this is a bit of a consolation.

After all the brouhaha and ballyhoo from the media surrounding Brady and the Bucs, this just goes to show that he’s still the best, and just as great as ever. He performed well after his much-discussed hiatus in the preseason finale, seemingly putting the scuttlebutt to bed, for now.

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers and their fans should keep thanking their lucky stars that they have Tom Brady, the greatest of all time, and the greatest of 2022, as their starting quarterback.
