A little surprised that Moss is the least guessed answer. I'm also not sure what the nightshade question is about, but I suspect it's something to do with his odd diet. :-)

Oh, coaches of Slavic heritage! Why must you vex me with the spelling of your name?

Maybe consider changing "Receiver who caught the most TDs" to "Player who caught the most TDs" to avoid confusion.

I would edit the description, to remove bias, to "commonly considered the greatest quarterback of all time."

Bias? Looks like a bald statement of fact to me.

Whether you are a fan or not, by what metric is he *not* the greatest quarterback in NFL history?

I'm glad you asked. There's a very natural metric in which Brady just isn't quite up to snuff:

SBWRAIUSD&RD"TANHWF" (Super Bowl Wins at Retirement Adjusted for Inflation with respect to the US Dollar and Rounded Down because "There Ain't No Half Wins in Football")

Bart Starr - 13

Terry Bradshaw - 11

Roger Staubach - 7

Joe Montana - 7

Tom Brady - 7

Passer rating (Mahomes, or Brees if you only count retired players): Brady is 8th

Completion percentage (Deshaun Watson, or Brees if you only count retired players: Brady is 20th

Passing yards per attempt (Otto Graham): Brady is 33rd

Interception percentage (Rodgers, or Kaepernick if you only count retired players): Brady is 6th

TD percentage: (Sid Luckman): Brady is 25th

TD/Int ratio (Rodgers): Brady is 1st among retired players

@kitshef - A quarterback is no one of those measures but a composite of them all. Rhetorical question: What happens when you average them out for every QB who ever played (minus the ones who haven't thrown enough passes to provide a statistically representative sample)? @Quagga50 - That's awesome. But does the fact that Bart Starr played in a league with literally half as many teams as there are now, and no salary cap, thus limiting the diffusion of talent via free agency (football being a team sport and all), affect the inflation figure?

It's a fact that he's the greatest to ever play. This is common knowledge. No bias, I'm not a Patriots fan.

I don't think this is the kind of thing you can call a "fact." It is a fact that Atlanta is the capital of Georgia. It is a fact that Tom Brady won seven Super Bowls. But "the greatest" is not a fact, but a matter of opinion, even if it is a widely-shared and easily-defended opinion.

Totally agree. The complexity of American football's onfield dynamic, the interdependency of so many moving parts, makes quantifying individual performances just about impossible. Numbers are easy enough to compile, but they never tell the whole story.

Question for discussion: Would Brady be considered the goat if he retired after season #7 like Andrew Luck?

Of course not. Football's a game of longevity - I'd be hard pressed to imagine anyone, no matter how great a 7-season stretch they might have, being considered "greatest of all time" at any position they only played for 7 years.

Oh I don't know about that. Many still consider Jim Brown the greatest RB of all time and he only played 9 seasons in the NFL.

Another gift to Cleveland from Art Modell, who drove Brown into retirement a year early by refusing to accommodate his movie career.

What if a quarterback ended his 7-season career with 7 titles, 7 Superbowl MVPs, and like 40,000 passing yards?

Well yeah, he'd probably be considered the best, then.

This could absolutely be true of running backs. Their careers are very short.

That Edelman catch is forever imprinted in my brain. Go Pats!

Suggest allowing "green pepper" and "red pepper" in addition to "peppers."
