5. Tom Brady– When you talk about the best players in the NFL today, it’s only right that he’s mentioned. After all, he wins and that’s all he wants to do. We can talk about all he’s accomplished in his career. Three Super Bowl rings, two Super Bowl MVP’s, two league MVP awards and the first quarterback to throw 50 touchdowns in a season. Not only is he one of the best in the game today, he’s one of the best of all-time and is a first ballot Hall Of Famer. Tom Brady kicks off the top five. He makes everybody around him better. You could take a guy off the street, make him a receiver in New England and you’ll know who he is because of Brady. All this guy wants to do is win football games and he does just that. He’s an excellent leader and that showed in 2013. After losing a majority of his receivers from 2012, he had two rookie receivers in the line up with him and still won games and led them to their third straight AFC Championship game. He’s smart and he chooses his match ups and no quarterback is better at moving in the pocket than Brady is. He’s not a mobile guy but he can step away from pressure when he’s in the pocket. With this guy under center, the game is never over. How could we forget that Denver game last season? He finds different ways to win. If you take away his weapons, he’ll hand the ball off exactly how he did in the playoffs last season. He’s a living legend and one of the faces of football today.
