QUICK-HIT THOUGHTS: These rankings always spark debate, and from this viewpoint, one couldn't go wrong with any of the top three on the list. They are all superb players. Having seen the most of Brady, it's easy to make him my top choice, in part because I think he's consistently done more with less (e.g., the 2006 season, when Reche Caldwell was a leading receiver, was some of Brady's best work). Put more weapons around him, like we saw in 2007, and the results could be even more explosive.
