In reaction, Simms defended his list, saying the two legendary quarterbacks are 9 and 10 at this point in their respective careers. “The system makes them more than they make the system at this point. It’s not about clicks,” said Simms. Warner responded by saying “Are u serious??? Systems don’t have anything to do with great QB play at the biggest moments... they don’t make QBs throw great balls into tight windows...” When a fan told Warner to “go talk to God about it”, the Hall of Fame quarterback answered, “already did - he had both in Top 5!!” Recently, Brady was picked as the No. 6 player in the top 100 NFL players list by Pete Prisco of CBS Sports.

Warner had a taste of Brady’s greatness when they faced off in Super Bowl XXXVI, where the Patriots won their first Super Bowl trophy with a 20-17 win.
