Michigan may have to dedicate a shrine to Tom Brady, who is creeping to the top of almost every NFL quarterback record ever created.
With the New England Patriots’ 26-10 win over the Los Angeles Rams on Sunday, Brady became the winningest quarterback in NFL history, recording his 201st win. He passed Peyton Manning’s 200 wins for the record, while Brett Favre finished his career with 199 wins.
According to the Football Database, Purdue alum Drew Brees is second among active NFL quarterbacks with 135 wins.

The story of Tom Brady is one that will never be forgotten, as the former Michigan quarterback was picked with the 199th overall pick in the 2000 NFL Draft and led the Patriots to a Super Bowl victory in his second season in the NFL.
In his college career, Brady posted a 20-5 starting record, and had wins over Arkansas and Alabama in the 1999 Citrus Bowl and the 2000 Orange Bowl, respectively. In four years at Michigan, Brady threw for 4,773 yards and 30 touchdowns while completing 61.9 percent of his passes.
At this point, it might be tough to name a Wolverine in the NFL with a better pedigree than Brady.
