(Poll) Tom Brady voted 2nd greatest NFL player of all-time; Peyton Manning Was 3rd
This will surely have people arguing back and forth, depending on who you talk to, you might get 5 or 6 different answers on who’s the greatest NFL player of all time. Some may say Joe Montana, or maybe Jerry Rice, you may get a Walter Payton in there, even a Bo Jackson. The criteria for best player ever is different for most people. Most can break down why, when, stats, etc while others can only go by Super Bowl victories.
The Harris Poll decided to get to the bottom of this debate, so the company polled 2,368 US adults to find out who America thinks is the greatest NFL player of all-time. In the poll, respondents were asked to answer the following question: “Thinking about football players over time, please indicate which you think is the greatest football player of all time.”
Top-five players of all-time (via The Harris Poll)
1. Joe Montana (No. 3 in 2009)
2. Tom Brady (Unranked in 2009)
3. Peyton Manning (Unranked in 2009)
4. Walter Payton (No. 4 in 2009)
5. Jim Brown (No. 2 in 2009)
The last time Harris polled the country on the subject of greatest football player was in 2009, and Brett Favre was voted No. 1. Favre didn’t even make the top-five this year. Neither did Rice, who was voted No. 5 in 2009.
