2. Tom Brady
Regarded as one of the best quarterbacks ever, Tom Brady has had two of the best individual seasons in NFL history. However, he has mainly been praised for his astonishing performance in the playoffs.
Namely, Brady has led his team to a Super Bowl a total of three times and that fact alone is enough to make him one of the greatest NFL players of all time. Like Bart Starr, Brady was doubted coming out of college.
Drafted in the sixth season, he sat on the bench during his sophomore year until veteran Drew Bledsoe suffered an injury. Brady took his chance and won the Super Bowl in his first season as a starter. Brady is now in his 12th season and has a 111-32 career record, six Pro Bowl selections and two NFL MVP awards.
