Patriots quarterback Tom Brady provided video evidence
to have his speed ranking changed. Yes, Brady had a “96” overall rating in EA
Sports’ “Madden NFL 20” video game, and got a “60” in the speed category. The GOAT
wasn’t happy with that, and posted a video to show off a bit.
“Submitting new evidence to be considered for my Madden NFL speed rating. You can’t photoshop a video,” Brady wrote.
So, the official Madden NFL account reviewed Brady’s evidence and offered a decent response.
We all know that TB12 is the most accomplished player in the entire history of football. His game is perfect, and his performance hasn’t declined. Brady will be 42 this season, and age has nothing on him. He’s been part of the GOAT debate for quite some time, but we all know that he is the greatest of all time.
Even former NFL exec Mike Tannenbaum says Brady is better than the others.
“For me, it would be Tom Brady. Being in the AFC East for as
long as I have, between the Jets and the Dolphins, every year we were like,
‘Wow, this is going to be it for Tom. He’s getting older. This has got to be
the year. This has to be the year.’ And it’s remarkable. He’s gotten better,”
Tannenbaum said. “He’s so smart. He knows where he’s going with the ball often
before the ball’s ever snapped, so it’s hard to get to him because he gets rid
of it so quickly. It’s really remarkable that he’s actually gotten better in
the back half of his career from the first half. “Unfortunately, I’ve admired
it to my detriment, but he really deserves a lot of credit.”
even think of slowing down, and the word “retirement” doesn’t exist in his
“I’m gonna know when the time is right. I’m gonna feel like,
‘OK, I’ve had enough.’ I don’t quite feel like that yet. I feel like I’ve still
made a lot of improvements, and I still feel like, you know, I can continue to
do it at a championship level. And I think that’s where I was at before, and
that’s still where I’m at now.”
