The Athletic pulled together opinions from a group of 50 NFL personnel—coaches, general managers and other executives—regarding the league's top 34 quarterbacks.
Based on the responses, the quarterbacks were split into four tiers. Tampa Bay Buccaneers quarterback Tom Brady topped Tier 2, finishing No. 3 overall. Not everyone was completely complimentary of Brady's efforts, however, with one offensive coordinator saying the following, per Mike Sando of The Athletic.
“Brady is a 2," the OC said regarding which tier he believed Brady should be in.
“There were too many games where they weren’t really doing a whole lot, and the defense or somebody made a big play. I think he’s really good. I just don’t think he can carry a team now.”
As Sando noted, that OC's sentiment isn't shared by him alone among those surveyed.
