3. Tom Brady, Patriots, 2000-Current
Tom Brady is living proof that, when it comes to the quarterback position in the NFL, the intangibles are far more important than raw talent. Let’s take a look at Brady’s resume: 5x Super Bowl champion, 4x Super Bowl MVP, 2x NFL MVP, 12x Pro Bowl. But this might be the most impressive stat – if you exclude the 2008 season when he was injured for the year in Week 1 – Brady has played 16 NFL seasons (not including 2017). In those 16 NFL seasons Brady has 7 Super Bowl appearances. That means he has been to the Super Bowl in almost half of the seasons he’s played in the NFL! Love him, or hate him, there’s no denying the guy is a winner. Brady has won the AFC East 14x (an NFL record) and has a career record of 214 wins and only 63 losses. Not too bad for a guy selected with the 199th Pick in the 2000 NFL Draft.
