Tom Brady Dislikes Being Called The GOAT, Here’s Why

Written by TrevStone

Sports fans all over consider Tom Brady the greatest quarterback of all time (GOAT), unless you’re a Green Bay Packers fan and you classify Aaron Rodgers as it… which you’re wrong. But you would think being called the greatest of all time would be a good feeling, Tom Brady actually doesn’t like being called it.

“I don’t really like it, truthfully,” he said on Patriots Access with Scott Zolack. “Well, I am [uncomfortable] because I don’t see myself in that way. That’s not a value I’ve ever put on me playing. I play for the enjoyment of the game, I play for the camaraderie with my teammates, and I play to win. I don’t play to be called a certain thing or compared to this guy.”

“There’s a lot of great players, and that’s how I see other players, too. There’s a lot of things that guys can do that I can’t do. And there’s some things I can do other guys can’t do, too. That’s part of my skill set. There’s so many different things involved with being a great player.”

Well Brady, you’re the GOAT. And that’s something you should be proud of. Congrats.
