“Tom Brady is unquestionably a great quarterback and among the greatest of all time,” admits Larry Alex Taunton at The American Spectator. “So when I say that he is overrated I don’t mean that he is not good or that he is average. No, he is, as I have said, great. But I am having trouble with the ‘GOAT’ label — that is, ‘Greatest of All Time.’ ” For starters, much of Brady’s glory depends on the Patriots’ fantastic defense.
