Lawrence Taylor was one of the most fearsome linebackers in NFL history and played against Joe Montana during the prime of their careers.
“Well, if you’re asking me who is the greatest quarterback I’ve ever played against, I’m gonna say Joe Montana. But history, if ya look at it, there’s been what, 54 Super Bowls and this is like [Brady’s] 10th. He’s played in 20% of all Super Bowls,” the former New York Giants star said.
“There’s nothing I can say. He is the GOAT. He is one of the greatest players this game has ever seen and I’m quite sure, unless [Patrick] Mahomes tries to break his record, there’s nobody that’s gonna beat that record.”
Taylor pointed out that one thing Brady never had to deal with was a linebacker like himself in the league, but it shouldn’t take away from his greatness.
“You look at what he has done, every year, no matter what he is given, he plays and he makes ’em a winner, he makes ’em relevant. He’s the Michael Jordan of football,” he added.
