One of the greatest quarterbacks to ever throw a football, former National Football League star Kurt Warner recognizes greatness.
With the 2021 Super Bowl now just a few days away, future NFL Hall-of-Famer Tom Brady’s career is in focus. Warner, who is already in the NFL Hall of Fame calls Brady the GOAT — which means “Greatest of all Time.” Even for Brady, that is high praise coming from a fellow legendary quarterback.
An old social media post from Warner has resurfaced in which the former St. Louis Ram calls Brady the greatest. The tweet is from 2017 and is based on an interaction with his son, who is working on a school project. Noticing an article on Brady on his son’s computer, Warner asks what he’s working on and gets a shocking answer.
“Walking in on son doing homework – saw and article on Tom Brady on Computer,” he says in the post. “Me: What you doing a project on Tom Brady? Him: No, writing a paper on ‘Best quarterback of all time!'”
Kurt Warner Calls Tom Brady the ‘GOAT’
Judging by the hashtags Warner places at the end of the tweet, the quarterback finds his son’s response slightly disheartening but mostly humorous. The tweet from 2017 drew more than 25,000 “likes” along with thousands of comments and retweets.
Now, with Brady heading to his tenth Super Bowl appearance, Warner’s funny tweet has made its way into the public eye again.
Brady is the current quarterback of the Tampa Bay Bucs and has a claim as the greatest player in NFL history. The Bucs beat the Green Bay Packers last week to advance to the big game. They will square off against Patrick Mahomes and the Kansas City Chiefs for all the marbles next week. Brady has had an MVP caliber season in leading the Bucs into the playoffs and to the Super Bowl. During his first season with the Bucs, he threw for 4,633 yards and 40 touchdowns to just 12 interceptions. The longtime New England Patriot is going for his seventh Super Bowl win.
Warner acknowledges his old tweet has resurfaced with another tweet. He seems to have no issue in referring to Brady as the “GOAT.”
“Not sure why but had a (number) of people hit me up about this 4-year-old tweet,” he says. “Funny thing is it’s even MORE true now.”
