The Conscience of Thoroughbred Racing


By Marc Lawrence — With Tom Brady moving on to Tampa Bay after 20 brilliant seasons in New England with the Patriots, the argument of the Greatest Of All Time (GOAT) quarterback in the NFL is percolating again. After adding an unprecedented sixth Super Bowl ring with the Pats SB LIII win over the Los Angeles Rams in 2018, Brady certainly strengthened his case against legendary QB Joe Montana for right to wear the cloak of GOAT.
With it, the never-ending comparison between these two legends continues, and rightfully so. Montana played 16 seasons and Brady 20, or 14 and 18 respectively if you eliminate Brady’s 2000 rookie campaign and his knee injured 2008 season in which he appeared in only one game each year while attempting a total of 14 passes, and Montana’s 1991 and 1992 limited him to one game with 21 passes. I ran all the ATS numbers in the well-oiled machine. Find out all the comparative numbers between these two and draw your own conclusion by reading more here.
