2. Tom Brady, Tampa Bay Buccaneers
He’s called the GOAT for a reason.
Tom Brady is still going strong at 44-years of age — which is hard to even fathom. And he’s not just a game manager as many elder statesmen have been. No, he’s doing better than he ever has since he bolted from the New England Patriots and headed to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.
Brady had 4,633 yards and 40 touchdowns in his first season with the Bucs, which of course, led to him winning a Super Bowl in their home stadium (of course Brady managed to be the first quarterback to do this). Somehow, he got even better in year two as he had 5,316 yards with 43 touchdowns leading his squad to a 13-4 record.
He’s done this even with players such as Chris Godwin going down due to an injury and while having Antonio Brown forging vaccine cards and doing strip-teases in-game.
Brady also just tore apart the poor Philadelphia Eagles in the NFL Wild Card round as he was a cool 29-of-37 with 271 yards and two touchdowns. The funny part is, that was also considered an off-day for him as his team won easily 31-15.
Brady will go down as the most accomplished quarterback ever and has set an insanely high bar if anyone were to challenge him. And while he doesn’t come in at No. 1 in our 2022 NFL Power Rankings, he still always finds himself right near the top.
