LinkApologies in advance for linking to a Borges column.“I heard the people up there in Boston were talking about how they should trade (Tom) Brady,” Polamalu said. “We’ll take him. He’s the greatest quarterback to ever play the game. He goes from being a rookie that nobody is expecting anything from, to taking over with people saying he can’t do it, to winning three Super Bowls and now to being injured and out a year.
“It should already be obvious he’s the greatest quarterback to ever have played, but if he misses next season, too, and overcomes that, it’s not even a discussion. I don’t think it is anyway. Without him, I don’t think they’d be nearly as good. It’s not even close."
