Six NFL Players Who Could Be Better Than Tom Brady

Tom Brady is preparing to play in his 23rd season in the NFL. And while the 45-year-old plays at a high level, he will be retiring soon, which means NFL pundits and fans will be looking for the next quarterback who can achieve the same success or be better than Brady.

This is no easy task because Brady has done a number of things that no other player in the NFL has done. Besides playing in 10 Super Bowls and winning seven of them, Brady is a five-time Super Bowl MVP and is the all-time NFL leader in passing yards and touchdown passes. He also holds the NFL record for games started, Pro Bowl appearances, wins by quarterback, division titles, and Pro Bowl appearances and is the only player in NFL history to defeat all 32 NFL teams.

In order for any of the young quarterbacks to be better than Brady, they would have to play at a consistently high level for 20+ seasons. This isn’t an easy task, but there are few as talented as Brady, and one could be the face of the league if things go his way.

Mahomes is closest to being Brady based on what he did in his four seasons as a rookie with The Chiefs. He has led the team to four AFC Championship games, two Super Bowls and one Super Bowl win. But there is some competition in the conference that could trump the Mahomes.

Allen breathed new life into the Bills who played in four consecutive Super Bowls in the 1990s. He has led the Bills to an AFC Championship appearance in his four seasons as a rookie and has the highest post-season rating at 149.0, which was this last season.

In two seasons with the Chargers, Herbert won the Offensive Rookie of the Year and was named to the Pro Bowl. He has yet to reach the playoffs, but with 2022 being his third season, Herbert is likely to take a huge step forward in his progression.

After one season, Jones established himself as the QB franchisee for the Patriots. He threw for 3,801 yards and 22 touchdowns in the junior season, which led to him being named to the All-Rookie Team and Pro Bowl.

Trevor Lawrence – Jacksonville Jaguars

As of now, that’s a long shot as Lawrence has had a challenging rookie season, throwing 12 touchdowns and 17 interceptions in 17 games. But with Doug Pederson as Jaguar’s new head coach, Lawrence should improve dramatically in 2022 and quarterback fans can expect him to be when he was put into first place overall.

best chance

As mentioned earlier, Mahomes has the best chance of being the next Brady. But all the six midfielders mentioned are still young and have a chance to do special things in their careers. The interesting thing is that all of these players play in the AFC, which means that they will face each other many times over the years, which is not a bad thing for the fans.
