Thanks or the backup, Go Blue Forever. And I agree with you that Kobe is not the equal of Jordan, but then Jordan is not the equal of Oscar Robertson. Not my view alone but also the view of Red Auebach, Bill Russell, Wilt Chamberlain, most HoFers and anyone whoever saw both Oscar and Michael Play. Russell once laughed uncontrollably for an extended time when asked if Jordan was the best. He like most who are aware of how the NBA works, realize that they, the NBA, markets whoever will get them the most green as the best. Oscar and Bird were labelled the best until they took the NBA to court. Tick off the NBA and you lose their backing, and the backing of the giant media machine behind them.
Check out all the rule changes the NBA made to make it harder for Oscar to dominate. NBA couldn't allow a guy who, in only his second year, averaged triple doubles for the entire season (Jordan didn't even have half a seasons worth of triple doubles in a 15 year career -think about that one). Oscar was like LeBron is today, a much better physical specimen than all else around him. Only Oscar had better basketball skills, and was the only player who could muscle Chamberlain away from the basket (strongest @&$? Who ever put on a pair of sneakers). Go ask Bill Russell, a man who won 11championships (and should have gotten an extra ring as player/coach for a total of 12) if Jordan is the best. He will just laugh in your face.

What would Abraham Lincoln say?

If Lincoln could speak today he would say...take the lid off. He wouldn't like being stuck in a coffin.
In reality he would praise the American people for their willingness to have a black president. Unfortunately he would then curse the people for picking the lowest quality individual possible. Current president has done more harm to America, it's economy and it's allies than having a child or no one in office. And then there are those who believe in prophecy. Current prez meets all the requirements to be at least AN Antichrist if not THE Antichrist.should have listened to grandma!

Also, Oscar Robertson averaged over 30 points, 10 rebounds, 10 assists over his first five full seasons. No one in the history of the NBA, other than Oscar, has ever done that for even a single year. And probably why Bill Russell holds Oscar in such high regard, as does all who have seen him play. Please note, Bill Russell is the only world class athlete to ever play in the NBA. His 440 track ability coupled with his high jump ability (one of the first to clear 7feet) made him a ruthless defender and the leagues greatest player (were it not for Oscar, that is).

I've been a journalist and I don't disagree with what you are saying about deadlines. However you can be fired just as easily when readers start dismissing your credibility. I also don't disagree with his premise, but his reasons are flimsy and it's a glaring oversight not to mention that Mallett was presumably drafted for this purpose. If he says the guy can't play, fine, tell me why you think so. When Brady's 38 and Mallett has watched for 4 years, this would be a more valid comparison. I'm waiting for the Craig Nall/Tim Tebow comparison.

"WTF"? I know he is 34 y/o and the franchise needs to think about the future but Brady has at least 3 good solid years to give being that he is the BEST QB in the history of the NFL! Not only can he still play at an elite level, his passion and commitment to the game and the team are all there. He cannot do it alone as we've seen in past super bowls; if recievers don't catch well thrown balls, if key players (Gronk) are not healthy, and the "D" (secondary) cannot cover deep passes, Brady can't win them all.

I don't think it's a stretch, only QB I can definitively say ranks higher is Joe Montana. If not the greatest he's in the top 2 and 1 more SB win would move him up to "arguably" the greatest.

This coming from a Redskins fan, I have no reason to play favorites on this. Tom Brady is awesome

I would take Aaron Rodgers over him as he is as good a passer and far more mobile than Brady. Montana was overrated as he did not have that strong an arm. Jerry Rice could make any journeyman QB look like a Hall of Famer when Rice was in his prime. Steve Young was a big nothing until he had Rice to throw to. Brady failed not just once, but twice against a less than stellar Giant defense in two different Super Bowls in spite of the Patriots being heavily favored in recent years. The great ones don't lose big games when heavily favored to win.

Are you being serious? REALLY? Joe Montana was over rated? Brady can't win a big game? Seriously? You think Aaron Rodgers is the greatest of all times??

I'm gonna be as nice as I can be in saying this, you just showed a shining example of why nobody takes the Tim Tebow supporters seriously. That's one of the most absurd posts I've ever read on here, and I've honestly read some pretty down right moronic posts.

Jesus Christ, where do these people come from? Do they even watch football?

Don't be stupis! I am more than 12 and old enough to remember Montana's lack of arm strength. I am starting to question your overly simplistic views on what constitutes greatness in football.Montana was great because he had consistently open receivers to throw to and an offensive line that often gave him all day to find an open receiver.

Montana reminded me of another noodle armed QB by the name of Len Dawson who couldn't even beat out QBs in Cleveland named Jim Ninowski and Frank Ryan who will never be mistaken for HOF QBs, and he went on to join the Dallas Texans (who later became the KC Chiefs) where he later had HOF wideout Otis Taylor to pass to who did the same for Dawson as Rice did for Montana. Throughout his career, Dawson was protected by a strong offensive line and had good receivers in Chris Burford, Fred Arbanas, Frank Jackson, and Otis Taylor, all of whom were all AFL and AFL all stars at one time or another during Dawson's tenure with the Texans/Chiefs.

As I said before Steve Young was a big nothing until he arrived at SF and had Jerry Rice to throw to. Jerry Rice in his prime could make any run of the mill passer look like a Hall of Famer. Montana's stats said far more for his receiver's talents than his lollipop arm. In the 1979 draft, the Giants passed on Montana in the draft in favor of Phil Simms who had a stronger arm. Had Montana gone to NY instead of SF, I seriously doubt he would have been in the HOF.

Let's get this straight. I have never anointed Tebow as a good, let alone great QB. He may well not even be an average QB. I never said Aaron Rodgers was the best all-time. I only said I would take him over Tom Brady because of his far superior mobility. I never said Brady couldn't win a big game, but he did come up short twice against inferior Giant teams in the Super Bowl.

Before you go off ranting like you did here, perhaps you ought to learn to get facts straight and also start probing a bit beneath the surface instead of being so overly simplistic.

The 49ers head coach Bill Walsh wanted to draft Phil Simms, but the Niners were unable to make a deal which would allow him to pick ahead of the Giants. Simms had a very fine career for the Giants and I can only imagine what he might of done with the 49ers who were clearly the most dominant team of the 1980s will Jerry Rice to throw to.
