For Tampa Bay Buccaneers wide receiver Scotty Miller, veteran quarterback Tom Brady is why they will be playing in Super Bowl LV following their 31-26 win over the Green Bay Packers in the NFC Championship on Sunday at Lambeau Field. When asked about Brady’s impact on all Buccaneers players, Miller declared “Tom’s the GOAT (Greatest of all Time).” Miller elaborated on his statement, saying the Buccaneers were 7-9 last season and now they are in the Super Bowl following Brady’s arrival in the offseason.

“It just tells you we’ve added other stuff too and got better, but he’s at the helm, he’s our leader," said Miller, per transcription of the post-game press conference posted on the team’s official YouTube site.

“He’s probably the biggest reason that we are where we are. He’s a great player and great leader. Makes it easy for us to get behind him and follow him,” added Miller, stressing that Brady’s been here before and has played in big moments. “When it’s all on the line, he’s gonna make the play,” stressed Miller, who had his share of the limelight when he caught a 39-yard touchdown pass just before halftime to give the Buccaneers a 21-10 lead at the break.
