Tom Brady Records the Most Playoff Victories of All-Time!
The last time this record was broken, the all-time playoff victories record that is, was more than 20 years ago, when a quarterback named Joe Montana, Tom Brady's idol, took it from Terry Bradshaw. Now, Brady took it from Montana.
With his first playoff victory, coming in 2001, Brady has won 17 playoff games as a starter for New England. He even began his career, 10-0 before falling to Denver in 2006, an unheard of feat!
However, in Brady's last 6 appearances, he is a meager .500, having gone 3-3 with 2 Super Bowl losses. He hopes to keep adding to his total, and bettering his recent record, as he is on track to become the quarterback with the most AFC Championships, and thus the most Super Bowl appearances, should he defeat the Ravens next week in Foxborough. That would be an even more amazing feat!
Brady now tops a list that includes greats behind him like Montana, Bradshaw, Elway, Farve, Aikman, and Staubach. The closest active player on that list behind Brady is Ben Roethlisberger who has 10.
Despite any arguments about the changes to the playoff structure from years past, or how things are different now with x, y, and z, Brady's accomplishment, no matter where you rank it, has to be respected because of the numbers. If it were so easy, why haven't more people done it? It should be respected for two simple reasons, it's both amazing and difficult to do. .
