There shouldn't be a debate at this point.
Tom Brady will go down as the greatest quarterback in the history of the NFL. One would think the five-time Super Bowl champion would simply brush off a question about Texans' rookie Deshaun Watson — and if Brady ever envies the mobility we see from the former Clemson star, Russell Wilson and even Ben Roethlisberger.

Brady — who has won Super Bowl MVP four times and NFL MVP twice — made it clear that he'd love to be a dual-threat quarterback, but acknowledged he was happy with his current skill set.
"If I ran a 4.7 I'd be the first overall pick," Brady said jokingly after Wednesday's joint practice with the Texans. "I would have probably actually been a fourth-rounder. I wish I could make some of those plays [similar to Watson] and I think every player has strengths and weaknesses. You learn to play to your strengths and you learn to develop your weaknesses."
Could you imagine if Brady actually had Watson's speed and running ability? I'm not sure that the G.O.A.T could get much better, but that would be fun to watch.
