Majority of NFL fans have come to the conclusion that Tom Brady and Bill Belichick are the GOATs of football.
Well, Colts owner Jim Irsay has his own definition of what it takes to become the GOAT.
Let me be clear- The Patriots ARE The Greatest Team in the Super Bowl Era- Hands Down!! It’s just always been my opinion and goal; 3 Consecutive World Championships/in The Super Bowl era/is the G.O.A.T. Standard- that remains untouched and unachieved🏈!

While he does admit that the Patriots are the greatest team in the Super Bowl era, Irsay says in order to be the GOAT you need to win 3 consecutive championships.
Seven teams, including the Patriots, have won back-to-back Super Bowls. No team has ever had three consecutive.
The whole tweet comes out of nowhere. But obviously, the Colts and Patriots have a long history. From Brady vs Manning, to Deflategate and the Josh McDaniels saga.
Even with Irsay’s definition, it’s tough to deny that the Patriots have had one of the greatest runs of all time.
