Even by Tom Brady’s own lofty standards, 2015 has been a great year for the quarterback: Winning a Super Bowl and defeating the NFL in court to avoid a four-game suspension for his role in Deflategate. The Patriots star is capping it off by being named one of GQ’s Men of the Year and appearing on the magazine’s cover.
The accompanying article was written by Chuck Klosterman and is titled “Tom Brady Is the Greatest Quarterback of All Time. Period.” A title like that is likely to start more arguments than it ends, as will Brady’s responses to the Deflategate questions within the piece.
“I’m not talking about that, because there’s still ongoing litigation. It has nothing to do with the personal question that you’re trying to ask, or the answer you’re trying to get. I’m not talking about anything as it relates to what’s happened over the last eight months.”
The “Men of The Year” issue of GQ will be available for purchase nationwide beginning on Nov. 24, and also feature Bill Simmons’s interview with President Obama, and an article on Steph Curry and the Warriors.
