Guesting recently on HBO’s The Shop, Brady got asked about his thoughts on LeBron saying that the quarterback is the greatest football player ever, but not the GOAT athlete.
“I’m not a big comparison thing like that and it’s because really it just depends what style you like,” Brady said, via NFL.com. “You could say, well, you’re maybe the most accomplished. I would say, OK, yeah, I’ve won a lot of games, Super Bowls and so forth. But my style of play might not fit everybody else’s, what their view of what that position should be. I can really just be the best with the body that I was given.
“There’s certain things that I certainly cannot do. And I have the awareness to realize, OK, I can’t do those things. You can’t do everyone else’s job. I can’t block, tackle, run, catch. I sure as hell can’t run. But I can throw the (expletive) out of the ball. So let me just do that, and let me do that really well. And if I can do that, then the team certainly can use me for that.”
LeBron James said football players are disqualified from the G.O.A.T. debate because they don’t play both sides of the ball.
Both have a point and neither are wrong. It is easier to point out that both of them are bound for Springfield and Canton, respectively.
