    Starr was certainly great, but I would put him in the ranks with Joe Montana or Terry Bradshaw...one of the greatest, but not the greatest. What Brady is doing is otherworldly.
    Less teams, so talent not watered down.
    Also, QBs back then could be bodyslammed onto a bed of nails and a flag MIGHT have been thrown. You basically had to prison rape them to draw a flag.

    Not taking anything away from Brady, but Starr's accomplishments are right up there in the discussion as GOAT.
    Never really developed a taste for tequila. Kind of hard to understand how you make a drink out of something that sharp, inhospitable. Now, bourbon is easy to understand.

    Do you really believe that Starr played against more talented teams? Although if you want to go down that route (you don't) Starr probably had more hall of famers on his team than any of the great QBs.

    I don't think he is GOAT, but he can't be dismissed so easily. That was my point.

    Those Michigan players that won 6 banners in the first nine years must have been fantastic, because the talent was sure not watered down.

    I called him one of the greatest. Nobody was dismissing him.

    Apologies on my part, honest/for real.

    Frankly, I still think Peyton is GOAT. Brady needed an OC.

    Peyton > Brady. Brady had the better support cast, ESPECIALLY coaching. Peyton is a better QB, IMO. Sue me.

    Had the pleasure of meeting him last year. A gentleman that oozes nothing but class, and a great guy to-boot. Rest In Peace, Bill.
