Format: Paperback
NFL fans will find this book a very good reference, not only for the career of Tom Brady but as a review of the best quarterbacks to ever play the game. One may disagree with the author's conclusions (more in a moment) and still find this a must-have for the sheer volume of information and statistics this book contains.
Author Sean Glennon comes across as a fan of the game itself and an admirer of virtually every quarterback he writes about; this makes it a refreshing and easy read. He makes a good faith effort to employ statistics that are relevant for the many quarterbacks from the 1930s to the present that he reviews. As the game has changed dramatically over that period of time the reader can be left to make alternate conclusions based upon a preference/prejudice for a specific QB, but Mr. Glennon leaves little doubt as to Brady's preeminence among active QBs and the propriety of his inclusion in the discussion of all-time greatest.
As I write this, Brady has just become the first QB to win his division for the tenth time in his career. I would expect Mr. Glennon to update his book at the conclusion of Tom Brady's career, when future accomplishments (a record sixth Super Bowl? another Super Bowl win? MVP?) might make his assertion one of unanimous consent. For now, this book encourages the fan to more fully appreciate a player who is still very much with us.

I cannot believe I am saying this, but here it goes...TOM BRADY IS THE GREATEST QUARTERBACK IN NFL HISTORY!

It is over...I never thought I would say it, but it is simply time for us all to let Joe Montana go. I was very impressed by the factual research done with this book and also how unbiased the book was. The book simply broke down facts, even things that I had never thought of. Glennon breaks down MANY great QB's in this book, not just the names on the front cover. He goes way back. He praises the greatness of them all and simply puts out the facts, all the way down to the salary cap etc... as to why Tom Brady is better...I always had Tom Brady on the Mount Rushmore and always had Joe Montana #1, until I saw the light...I highly recommend this book to anyone who wants proof and to anyone who loves football or the loves the quarterback position. Once more, the "debate" is over, Tom Brady is the best of all time.

Well, you could say why wouldn't he like this book. The truth is this book is so well delivered even a novice to the game of football would have no problem following Sean's logic. The writer has done all the research to prove that Tom Brady is by far the best of the best. Sean did not take the high road in writing this, but has given every QB their due. Facts are facts, but in writing this book Sean has made it very interesting for the common reader as well as the sports nut. He really makes his family proud of him and his talents.

This is a great informative and enjoyable read. The author makes a strong case for Brady as the greatest quarterback in NFL history. A case I would disagree with. There also seems to be a New England-Boston bias. The stats are interesting and well researched. I caught a historical error on page 90 the author says the Patriots beat the Eagles 27-24 in Super Bowl 39 February 6 2005 in Jacksonville Florida. The actual and real final score was 24-21 Patriots.

Sean Glennon, the author, did his homework for this book. He compares Brady to all the other QBs in 20 different categories. Glennon makes the case in Brady's favor without resorting to hyperbole or imagination. Just the facts.

Sean Glennon has written a well-organized, cogent argument why Tom Brady is the best quarterback in NFL History. He does this by comparing the statistics, both regular season and post-season, as well as the long term success of other candidates' respective teams versus Tom Brady. He also uses more subjective measures such as talent around the quarterback and championship wins. He uses all of this data and more to show that Tom Brady stacks up as the best ever.

The chapters a broken down comparing Tom Brady to other great quarterbacks, interspersed with breakdowns of each of Brady's seasons and his team's accomplishments.

What this book doesn't do is trash the achievements of other quarterbacks. All the quarterbacks presented in this book are rightfully considered the greatest that ever played the game. You don't hear the author trashing the achievements of Peyton Manning, for example. In fact, the author lauds the achievements of the other great quarterbacks to which he compares Brady.

Glennon does such a great job of making his arguments I won't rehash them here, but I will make a few points on a couple of items in the book.

Peyton Manning

Tom Brady vs. Payton Manning is the first chapter of the book that directly compares Brady to another great quarterback and Tom Brady vs. Joe Montana is the last one. That was brilliant placement of those two chapters as Manning would be the current day quarterback to most likely get some strong arguments in his favor, and Joe Montana, of course, many incorrectly consider the best ever.

The Peyton Manning chapter is very similar to some of the arguments I have made to why Tom Brady really is a better quarterback than Manning and I'll just throw in a few comments here to say that I agree.
