He has appeared in five Super Bowls, been named MVP in two of them, collected three championship rings, and played in nine Pro Bowls – but Sporting News writer Vinnie Iyer has rated Tom Brady the worst QB remaining in the Playoffs.

Brady has his critics there is no doubt about that.

Many are quick to highlight the fact he has not led his team to a title since 2005, but with four young quarterbacks still in the running it is difficult to imagine such a decorated player as the worst of the bunch.

The eight QB's remaining in this years playoffs were ranked on arm strength, accuracy/delivery, mobility/athleticism, pocket presence/awareness and intangibles by Iyer.

Brady ranked fifth in arm strength, seventh in accuracy and mobility, sixth in pocket presence, and fifth in intangibles.

It is hard to argue he lacks mobility in comparison to the likes of Kaepernick, but for a player with the sixth highest career passing rate of all time to rank seventh in accuracy seems harsh.

Andrew Luck, Brady and the Patriots’ opponent in Sundays playoff match up, was ranked in first-place alongside Russell Wilson, and Peyton Manning.

Drew Brees ranked second, Cam Newton third, while Philip Rivers and Colin Kaepernick tied for fourth.
