NFL Networks Top 100 Players

Congratulations Tom Brady. On Sunday night, NFL players crowned their No. 1 on the NFL Network’s “The Top 100 Players of 2011,” a 10-week voyage that generated as much controversy as it did consensus before coming down to yet another dogfight between Tom Brady and Peyton Manning. As it has been for the past ten years, it all came down to a showdown between Tommy and Peyton. As football fans we should consider ourselves blessed to be following the came when it is has two of the greatest quarterbacks to ever play. As a Patriot fan, it goes even further. We will never see the likes of having a player like Tom Brady again. They only come around once in a lifetime. Enjoy it gang. While there was some controversy around the players picks for the “TOP 100 Players” I would dare say that the number one pick was not. Tommy continues to get better each year.


Brady holds numerous regular season and postseason records, including: most touchdown passes in a regular season (50); highest touchdown-to-interception ratio in a single season (9:1); highest single-game completion percentage, regular season or postseason (26/28, 92.9%); most consecutive pass attempts without an interception (339, still active); most consecutive regular-season home wins (28, still active); highest winning percentage of any quarterback ever during his first 100 starts (76 wins); most completions in one Super Bowl (32); and the longest streak of games with 3 or more touchdown passes (10 games). most career completions in Super Bowl history (100); Brady is the fourth-fastest player to reach 200 career passing touchdowns (116 games). He is the first quarterback in NFL history to have reached said mark with under 100 career interceptions (he had 88 interceptions). Considering his many numerous achievements, and his late draft selection (6th round, 199th selection), many analysts, including those at the NFL Network, have called Brady the best NFL draft pick (or draft steal) of all time.
