“When you watch the way he prepares, when you watch the way he gets people around him to prepare. That’s what greatness is. Being great is an individual process. Greatness is getting everybody around you to believe in that. And that’s what he’s done.

He has to be the greatest quarterback of all time, because of the work he’s done, with the players who he’s done it with, and how he continues to win,” he added.

Appreciating the greatness of Brady

Lewis said that he is aware of people getting tired of Brady winning all the time. But the former Baltimore Raves players said that instead of complaining, players around the league should do something to stop him.

“I say this all the time. If you want to stop him, if you get tired of Tom Brady and you get tired of him winning, Stop it. Do something about it. And if you can’t do anything about it then join the game and appreciate what he’s done,” Lewis said.

“You got to take your hats off to that guy. He’s made greatness a lifestyle.”

43 and still playing like a man in his 20’s Brady is a freak of nature. A quarterback who will go down in history as the greatest to have ever played the sport.
