For some reason Max Kellerman asked the great Joe Montana if Tom Brady is now the GOAT. I know Max is a hater of the Buccaneers quarterback, but his 7th Super Bowl win cemented his status as the greatest of all-time.
To his credit Montana did admit that he had been passed on the GOAT list and that Brady sits on the top of the list. It's not a hard thing to do given the undeniable facts of what Brady has accomplished.
From Larry Brown Sports:
“I think Tom has taken his place on the top up there a long time ago,” Montana said. “He’s had a tremendous career, he’s fun to watch. Everybody always contests over that, but I think if you look at what Tom has been able to accomplish in his time that he’s played, I think it puts him definitely up there at the top of the list.
“There’s a lot of great guys, as I said, before me. You go back to Otto Graham, who won 10 or 11 championships. It’s hard to compare them, but if you’re looking at it, yeah, definitely Tom at that point.”

At this point in time, with no competition in sight, the GOAT argument in the NFL is over. I know ESPN has to fill hours upon hours of airtime, but they're going to have to find a new argument to do so.
Maybe one day another Tom Brady will come along, but I highly doubt it will be anytime soon.
