Tom Brady has always measured greatness by winning championships, a feat that solidified his GOAT status by winning his seventh Super Bowl championship last season – the most for any player in NFL history. While Brady has the most NFL championships for any player in the league’s 101-year history, there was one feat he didn’t accomplish until last season that a quarterback from the Hall of Fame has achieved.
Peyton Manning was the only quarterback in NFL history to start and win a Super Bowl title with two different franchises. According to Tampa Bay Buccaneers quarterback coach Clyde Christensen, Brady wanted to match Manning’s impressive mark this year.
Low and voila, Brady has equaled his longtime rival.
“He said one of the things that he found really fun and stimulating was what Peyton did in Denver,” Christensen told Zach Gelb on CBS Sports Radio Wednesday. “There was something about that challenge that hit (Brady) right. “Hey, I’ll go see if I can do this again somewhere else.”
“I think the challenge was huge for him. Twenty-one years is a long time. Sometimes it’s time for a change. He mentioned several times that he was impressed by it and that it seemed fun and stimulating to him.
