Peter King May Not Have The Greatest Memory

Posted by Mike on September 17, 2008

This comes directly from The Big Lead. I think you may find it interesting:

Peter King’s mailbag, this week: “From Brian Maxwell, of Minneapolis: “I know it’s early but if the Pats win the Super Bowl this year with Matt Cassel, does it reflect negatively on Tom Brady’s legacy? I think if that happens, we can stop the “greatest of all-time” talk.

KING: Not sure I’ve heard anyone call Brady the greatest of all-time. But you’re right. Cassel has made one start. Brady has made 128, has won 79 percent of them, is 14-3 in the postseason, is 3-1 in Super Bowls. I understand your point — that if the Patriots go far into January, then it takes some of the shine off Brady’s star. But we’re not even far into September.

Peter King’s column, 1/14/08: “Tom Brady was a ref’s buried whistle and a stunning drop by Mr. Hands Wes Welker from being 28-for-28 the other night. Are we watching the best quarterback of all time in mid-career? Are we watching, maybe three of the best five or six of all time?”

Peter King’s column, 11/6/07: “Tom Brady and Peyton Manning are already among the all-time greats.”

Peter King’s column, 10/5/04: “Playing like this is the biggest reason why the Patriots are poised to set the all-time record for consecutive wins Sunday against Miami. Tom Brady is simply an unflappable player, one of the greatest pressure players I’ve ever seen.”
