Denver Broncos cornerback Aqib Talib has played with or against the a lot of elite quarterbacks, but in his mind, no one compares to New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady.

Talib was asked to compare the quarterback he just matched up against — Ben Roethlisberger — to the quarterback who is next on the schedule:

Via James Palmer on Twitter:

Is Brady the best to ever do it? Maybe, but one look at Brady’s postseason numbers prior to 2015 from both a statistical and win-loss perspective bolster Talib’s claim.

The feeling is likely mutual. Brady only targeted Talib three times — he allowed one reception for five yards – in the Broncos’ Week 12 win over the Patriots.

Talib was teammates with Brady during the 2012 and 2013 seasons before he signed a six-year, $57 million contract with the Broncos in 2014.
