Michigan’s Jim Harbaugh Gets Brutally Honest About Tom Brady
Michigan’s Jim Harbaugh got brutally honest about Tom Brady in a recent interview with Jay Nordlinger of the National Review.
In Harbaugh’s assessment, Brady still does not get the sort of credit he deserves.
“No doubt about that – he’s the greatest of all time in football. And I think he’s pretty much lapped the field in my opinion,” he said.
“I’ve talked to a lot of people who knew him when he was here and they won,” Harbaugh continued.
“They won games when he started. He was in a quarterback competition, I think it was Drew Henson was a phenom quarterback who came in as a freshman and Tom was an upperclassman.
“They were splitting time. But Tom won big games and was drafted in the sixth-round, was very famously a late-round pick, but became the greatest of all time.”
Brady’s legacy at this point is secure. Nevertheless, it will still be interesting to see what he accomplishes with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.
