It goes without saying that Tom Brady is one of the greatest athletes of all time. He's a winner, a great competitor, and one of the most dominant players in NFL history, and perhaps we're making an understatement.
Brady has ruled football almost at will for the past two decades. Over that span, he's made it to 9 Super Bowls (almost 50% of the seasons) and has won 6 of them. You may think he's overrated and that he's not the most talented in the world, but he's got the résumé to back up his case as the GOAT.

Nonetheless, it still feels like we need to put his career into context to describe just how incredibly dominant he's been.
