Tom Brady Is The Worst Athlete In The NFL. His Combine Stats Prove ThatToo. But Here's Why That Does Not Matter At All:

Tom Brady has a remarkable story.

No one thought he could do it.

And for reasons beyond his entire control.

They said he was too unathletic, too slow, too gangly. NFL scouts took this picture of him while at the combine the year he entered the 2000 draft:



The most shallow industry in all of America is professional sports. 

They judge just about every player on physical attributes. 

Can he jump high? Can he bench press? How long are his arms? How big are his hands?

Of all the starting quarterbacks in the NFL right now, Tom Brady had the worst combine. His 40-yard dash time, for example, was THE slowest. Take a look:

Tom Brady stuck it to everyone. 

Of all the starting quarterbacks in the NFL right now, and all of the ones listed above, Tom Brady has had the best career. He's won more Super Bowls than all of them. He's passed for more yards and touchdowns than almost every single one of them too. 

He will be in the hall of fame. He might even be the greatest quarterback to have ever played. 

So let this story inspire you, and everyone around you. Forget about the team he plays for. Focus on his story. There's so much more to athletics than physical attributes. Tom Brady is your proof.
