Packers WR out to prove Rodgers, not Brady, is the 'GOAT' originally appeared on NBC Sports Boston

With six Super Bowl rings and potentially a seventh on the way, it's more difficult than ever to argue against Tom Brady being the greatest of all time.

That won't keep star Green Bay Packers wide receiver Davante Adams from trying.

Adams and his quarterback, Aaron Rodgers, will face off against Brady and the Tampa Bay Buccaneers on Sunday for a trip to Super Bowl LV. Like Brady, Rodgers is in the conversation as one of the best QBs of all time and undoubtedly is a future Hall of Famer.

The big difference? Rodgers only has one Super Bowl title to Brady's six.

To Adams, that stat shouldn't settle the 'GOAT' debate. But if that's what it comes down to, the four-time Pro Bowler wants to "shut the world up" by getting Rodgers his second ring.

"I think we all want it equally for ourselves, which ends up getting Aaron one in the end. But he definitely deserves it," Adams said on Wednesday. "It's a tough thing, because you look at Brady, everybody wants to make that comparison forever. So it's basically turned into a quarterback stat, a Super Bowl.

"So if that's what it's going to be, then obviously we're going to put as much as we can in ourselves to help him get there. And ultimately will relieve him of the Super Bowl being the thing that's keeping him from being the 'GOAT'. Because in my mind, he's the 'GOAT' regardless of how many Super Bowls are won. But just for the world just to shut them up, I guess we can go out there and get one for him."

Watch below (8:00 mark):

You certainly can't blame Adams for having his QB's back. And in a sense, he's correct in stating that Super Bowl wins shouldn't be the be-all and end-all when determining a quarterback's greatness.

But what Brady has done over the course of his 20-year NFL career is simply unprecedented. The 43-year-old will play in his 14th conference championship game Sunday and is on the brink of a 10th Super Bowl appearance. Not to mention, he's currently doing it on a new team in a completely new system.

Sunday's Brady vs. Rodgers showdown is set for a 3:05 p.m. kickoff. Brady and the Bucs are betting underdogs for the anticipated NFC Championship matchup.
