IN BRIEF: The Patriots kicked off their preseason schedule by dominating the Lions Thursday night. Jakobi Meyers caught two touchdowns while New England got strong games from Brian Hoyer and Jarrett Stidham.
Well, we can't say we're surprised with Terry Bradshaw's latest comments regarding former New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady.
The Pittsburgh Steelers legend doesn't believe Brady is the greatest quarterback of all time, which is fine, but he cited three surprising QBs who he believes are better... and, well, see for yourself.
"I don't think he's the greatest quarterback of all-time," Bradshaw said during an interview with 93.7 The Fan, as transcribed by Bryan DeArdo of CBS Sports. "It's hard to say. He may be the best quarterback we've had in the last 30 years. Is he better than [Roger] Staubach? No. Is he better than Dan Fouts? No. Dan Marino? No. I'm talking talent-wise when you're putting all of it together.
"Does he have more Super Bowls than anybody? Yes. Therefore, he's the best. I absolutely have no problem saying it. If you've got the most Super Bowls, you can be in there, but I don't put anybody as the greatest of all-time. Is he better than Montana? Not in my opinion. Is he better than Drew Brees? Yeah, maybe."
"Definitely the one to finish off the Rams," Gostkowski answered. "I mean, that was the most meaningful for me just because, you know, it wasn't the game-winner but it definitely sealed the game. Having missed a kick in a few Super Bowls, you kind of start to feel like 'aw man, am I ever going to get a chance?'
A great choice, especially since Gostkowski bounced back that game after missing his first field goal attempt.
Gostkowski explained how kicks at the beginning of games have been more difficult for him than attempts in the middle or at the end of games.
"The hardest part of kicking is trying to find that impactful kick in a season or a game, and it's so much out of your control. The more that you can focus on just trying to make every kick, the easier it is," Gostkowski said. "I always felt the most comfortable at the end of the games. Especially tight ones because you're in the game, you're in the flow of the game. Sometimes the hardest kicks for me were maybe the first kick of the game where I haven't played yet or I haven't been out there."
