During those years Aaron has learned to be better at not throwing interceptions, not fumbling the ball and to rush more yards as a quarterback than Tom Brady. Tom Brady has fumbled 107 times.

Joe Montana is one of the most influential quarterbacks of the late twentieth century. Joe Montana, or Joe Cool as some called him, won four superbowl rings.
