3. Tom Brady, Patriots

  • 2014: 97.4 QB Rating, 4,109 Yards, 33 TD, 9 INT

Deflated footballs, spying on opponents, and a guy named Ernie Adams who people perceive as the mad scientist provides much speculation about the New England Patriots.

Nevertheless, Tom Brady is one of the greatest quarterbacks in NFL history, and deserves his due coming into 2014.

His numbers from 2014 ain’t too shabby. This, despite not having a single wide receiver who’s tall enough to get on the rides at any amusement park.

Unlike Big Ben, Brady is a statue in the pocket. It works though, mainly because of the system and Brady’s presence which forces his offensive line to do their job to perfection.

If Peyton Manning is great with the short passing game, Brady is completely legendary. The rubs, mixing and matching, and timing patterns Brady executes with whichever receiver he’s throwing to is so maddening for NFL defenses and the reason he is one of the greats.
