Best: New England Patriots – Tom Brady
There’s nothing left to debate on Tom Brady’s résumé, as far as his legitimacy as the GOAT — “Greatest of All Time” — at his position. After assuming the mantle as the starting quarterback for the New England Patriots in 2001, Brady as accumulated five Super Bowl wins (tied for the most in NFL history), four Super Bowl MVP awards (most in NFL history), and three NFL MVP awards (second-most in NFL history).
At the end of the 2018 season, Brady sat in fourth place in the all-time passing yards list, and should easily move into second-place all time by the end of 2019.
Worst: New England Patriots – Mike Taliaferro
Even though they’re probably reveling in their unprecedented streak of success, fans of the New England Patriots know it hasn’t been all sunshine and rainbows for the team at the quarterback position. In their decades of sadness prior to the Bill Belichick era, the team has had some awful entries in their quarterbacking history.
Among that group includes Mike Taliaferro, who won 8 of 25 games during his three seasons with the Patriots, back when they were still the Boston Patriots (1968-1970).
