Marshall Faulk Says Tom Brady’s Legacy Needs Asterisk
As he’s done almost every year around Super Bowl time, former St. Louis Rams running back Marshall Faulk can’t help but to bring up Spygate and how the Patriots cheated his team out of a Super Bowl 36 win.
This is what he said a few days ago:

On Sunday, Faulk was discussing Tom Brady’s legacy with the rest of NFL Network’s “GameDay Morning” crew and he admitted that Brady is the greatest at his position—but he added one minor detail.
“I like it,” Faulk said of Brady being labeled the best quarterback in history, according to Conor Orr of NFL.com. “It’s like the Olympics now, getting the silver helps. I would say yes, but there’s always that little asterisk when you start talking about greatest ever.”
He was then asked by host Rich Eisen whether Brady should have an asterisk on his success and he responded with this:
“Come on, Rich. I don’t even want to get into that. Man is about to play in his seventh Super Bowl, he has a chance at winning five, it’s been great,” Faulk said. “But some things has happened and we know what those things are – when you talk about Super Bowls and things that has happened along the lines with the Patriots and we just cannot pretend like they didn’t happen.”
