Rob Parker is at it again, and he’s taking his Tom Brady scorchers to the Boston airwaves.
The FOX Sports 1 analyst, infamous in New England for his persistent arguments against Tom Brady and his status as the greatest quarterback of all time, joined Boston Sports Tonight at Radio Row in Atlanta to talk Super Bowl LIII. But obviously, the conversation turned to debating Brady.
“Tom Brady is not the GOAT, he is the LOAT: the ‘Luckiest Of All Time’,” Parker said, invoking his self-ascribed nickname for Brady. He also admitted that he’s still sticking to his argument for Joe Montana as the GOAT, because of his spotless 4-0 record in the big game.
“If you’re trying to go to the Playboy Mansion and stand out front, or are you trying to get inside? I’m trying to get inside,” Parker added. “If Tom Brady loses on Sunday, he will be 5-4, which is basically to me a .500 quarterback in the Super Bowl.”
That’s when the hosts just laughed in his face. And Parker himself couldn’t keep a straight face while saying that.
It’s a little bizarre to hold it against Brady if he were merely one game above .500 … in the biggest game of the year. It’s essentially penalizing him for not losing before the Super Bowl instead. And he put together one of the most productive Super Bowls in history last year against the Eagles, but lost anyway.
That’s what is at stake for Brady and the Patriots, though. If they lose to the Rams, Parker and his ilk will push the 5-4 record in the Super Bowl for the rest of his career.
