ESPN's NFL Nation recently conducted a survey with 155 players in the league today, asking them different questions about quarterbacks in the NFL today.
Reporters asked the players surveyed several questions on the NFL's passers including who their favorite rookie quarterback is, who is the most overrated quarterback, and who is the quarterback they would most like to sack.
The 155 players that took part in the survey were also asked which quarterback they think will win the most Super Bowls in the next ten years, which is bound to cause a split amongst all NFL fans.
The NFL players picked New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady as their favourite to win the most Super Bowls in the next decade despite the fact he turned 40-years-old back in August.
Brady topped the voting in this category with 21% of the vote, and he was closely followed by Oakland Raiders quarterback Derek Carr who had 20% of the vote. One player said about the Patriots star: "He'll probably go another six years."
Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers wasn't that far behind either with 18% of the vote, while Dak Prescott of the Dallas Cowboys completed the top four with 10% of the vote. In total, these four players received 71 votes together of the 155.
Some might find it surprising that the players believe Brady can win the most Super Bowls amongst quarterbacks in the next ten years because he's already 40-years-old. However, his investment in healthy lifestyle choices means he's able to play the game at a top level for longer than most players would be able to.
In the past three seasons, the Patriots have won two Super Bowls, with their most recent one coming last season when they came from behind to win in overtime against the Atlanta Falcons in arguably one of the greatest comebacks in Super Bowl history.
These Super Bowl wins have come with Brady in his late 30s, so it's easy to see why players still have faith in the quarterback to show up when it matters the most. It just shows how much respect players have for him and the way which he takes care of his body to extend his career.
