Tom Brady is playing in his 10th Super Bowl, an occurrence that almost seems impossible before Brady entering the NFL in 2000. Before Brady, John Elway set the record for most Super Bowl appearances by a starting quarterback with 5.
Brady has made 5 Super Bowl appearances since turning 37 years old, as many as Elway’s career. This just shows how successful Brady truly is. He made the Super Bowl in 10 of his 21 seasons playing football (47.6% of the time.) If Brady’s 5th season didn’t count (he tore his ACL) it would be 50% of his career.
Brady is going to be the first quarterback to start a Super Bowl in three different decades (2000, 2010, 2020.)
Brady is now one of the only quarterbacks to start a Super Bowl with two different teams, along with Peyton Manning, Craig Morton, and Kurt Warner. However, Manning is the only quarterback to start a Super Bowl and win both games with two different teams (Indianapolis Colts, Denver Broncos.)
If Brady wins this years Super Bowl title, it will be his third in five years. Brady’s has already established the nickname the “G.O.A.T” (greatest of all time,) another Super Bowl title will make this quarterback’s nickname unchallengeable. Will the “G.O.A.T” pull off another Super Bowl win?
