“He does everything you’re looking for as a quarterback,” Brady said. “I’ve seen...
Well, New England Patriot haters, you may get your wish. Eli Manning and the New York Giant offense will be the biggest test the Disciples Of The Hoodie have faced all year. This is not the Denver Broncos or the decidedly one dimensional Baltimore Ravens the Pats will be playing next Sunday.

This Super Bowl could create one of two storylines for the future of quarterback debates. If the Patriots win, Tom Brady will be vaulted to the forefront of the "greatest quarterback of all time" list.
