2) TOM BRADY
Aside from his 36 touchdowns, his extensive playoff experience and more extensively long hair, Brady is as cool as they come. He's a deadly efficient, not a bomber like Drew Brees, a gunslinger like Peyton Manning or a scrambling threat like Michael Vick (all watching the playoffs from home now by the way). He's reliable and steady, with the talent and arm strength to make every throw on the field.

Brady doesn't make mistakes. He threw just four interceptions and fumbled just three times, losing one. When you're both very good and very careful in the NFL, you are very tough to beat.
