Tampa Bay Buccaneers

Tom Brady takes a jab at Tony Dungy after his comments about Peyton Manning being the best

Tom Brady
People can debate all they want about Tom Brady saying he is not the best ever, but if you look at the record books he is, and it is not close.

You have to love Tom Brady. Brady is a competitor, and you may not be a fan of his, but the guy does not care about your feelings. He has been a winner for years and it is not slowing down now that he is in Tampa.

You would think because he is in Tampa, He would get some respect from the greats like Tony Dungy who helped build the Tampa Bay Buccaneers franchise back in the day. Well that is not the case.


Dungy was on Club Shay Shay a podcast with Shannon Sharpe, and when Dungy was asked who was the toughest quarterbacks to defend, Dungy put Tom Brady at sixth overall.

“I’m never putting Tom Brady ahead of Peyton Manning, so the best he could do is two. Peyton is my guy. So who gave me real problems? John Elway. You could do everything right, have the perfect defense. He’s going to move around and make something happen and kill you. He killed me enough, he was difficult. Steve Young was the same way. Those mobile quarterbacks. That’s who I put ahead of Tom. Aaron Rodgers, John Elway, Steve Young, guys who could move.

“Not to say Tom wasn’t great; he is great. But the extra dimension meant something to me. So that’s why I would only put him at six. Just my opinion,” Dungy said.

Brady heard that Dungy took a jab at him and fired back with an uppercut. This was a great response.

What makes is funny is the Colts placed a second place banner up in their rafters after Tom Brady and the Patriots spanked them 45-7 in the AFC Championship Game. Pretty funny to be honest haha.
