Tom Brady scoffs at best QB ever tag: ‘I’m really a product of what I’ve been around’

New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady continued being his modest self as more and more fans and pundits believe he’s the best quarterback to play the game. The latest case in point is Brady posing for the cover of the upcoming Madden 18 game, aka the G.O.A.T. edition…

“I don’t agree with that and I’ll tell you why,” Brady said, per ESPN’s Ian O’Connor.

“I know myself as a player. I’m really a product of what I’ve been around, who I was coached by, what I played against, in the era I played in. I really believe if a lot of people were in my shoes they could accomplish the same kinds of things. So I’ve been very fortunate.”

On the subject of him retiring anytime soon:

“I always said my mid-40s,” he said”and naturally that means around 45. If I get there and I still feel like I do today, I don’t see why I wouldn’t want to continue.”
