Tom Brady now looking for one for the thumb

New, comments

It makes Steelers fans sick. The Patriots have four Super Bowl titles, led by Brady, who now has three Super Bowl MVPs.

Steelers fans tend to hate the Patriots and their quarterback Tom Brady.

He entered hallowed ground Sunday, leading his team to the franchise's fourth Super Bowl championship, joining Steelers' QB Terry Bradshaw and 49ers QB Joe Montana as the only quarterbacks to win four Super Bowl titles.

He's already flashing his thumb - a revered icon made popular by the Steelers, who had to wait from January, 1980 to February, 2006, to claim its fifth title.

The Steelers lead the NFL with six Super Bowl championships. Brady will be 38 years old in 2015, and has a chance to tie Bradshaw in another sacred stat; two back-to-back championships.

Bradshaw's four titles came by way of separate repeat wins, something Brady thwarted the Seahawks' attempt at doing in their 28-24 win Sunday. Brady has three MVPs to Bradshaw's two, tying him with Montana for the most Super Bowl MVPs of all time.

Bradshaw, Packers quarterback Bart Starr and Giants quarterback Eli Manning each have two Super Bowl MVPs.
