Overview

An in-depth look at one of the top quarterbacks of all time
Showcasing one of professional football’s best players, this book spotlights the life and career of gridiron great Tom Brady. More than just a biography, it relates Brady’s story while also establishing his prominent place in NFL history. By examining his skills and statistics in a variety of categories and comparing him to other great quarterbacks—including Peyton Manning, Joe Montana, Bart Starr, Johnny Unitas, Roger Staubach, and more—the guide makes a strong case for Brady as football’s best signal caller. Along the way, his best moments as a Patriot are revisited, from championship seasons and his favorite receivers to his relationship with legendary coach Bill Belichick.

When New England Patriots' starting quarterback Drew Bledsoe recovered from an injury sustained early in the 2001 season, Patriots fans were in disbelief when coach Bill Belichick decided to bench him in exchange for starting the almost unheard of second-year sixth-round pick, Tom Brady. Little did they know he would go on to lead the Patriots to five Super Bowls, win two Super Bowl MVP awards and hold the record for most touchdown passes in a single regular season.

 

Widely regarded as one of the best quarterbacks in the NFL, Tom Brady vs. the NFL: The Case for Football's Greatest Quarterback (October 2012) by Sean Glennon offers substantial evidence that he is the best quarterback to date. Much more than just a biography of a great player, this in-depth examination details Brady's incredible statistics, defining moments and outstanding skills, comparing him to past and current football greats from Joe Montana and Bart Starr to Brett Favre, Peyton Manning and more. This exhaustive exploration does an excellent job of celebrating their achievements while offering straightforward examples of Brady's superiority. Along the way Glennon also delves into:

 

  • The unique relationship behind the NFL's most winningest coach-quarterback pair-Bill Belichick and Tom Brady
  • The intense rivalry between Peyton Manning and Brady
  • Brady's phenomenal accuracy, exceptional quick decision-making ability, superb leadership skills and his intense drive

 

A fascinating, meticulously researched and thorough examination of Tom Brady's exceptional talent on the gridiron, Tom Brady vs. the NFL is a must read for faithful Patriots fans as well as diehard professional football buffs.
