Ryan Clark: Brady is the 'greatest living American'


Ryan Clark said earlier this week that Tom Brady "sees ghosts" when he's under pressure from an opposing team in a given game.

"Ghosts or no ghosts, I have to go with the greatest living American, and that's Tom Brady," Clark, an ESPN guest host, said Thursday on set when asked who the toughest quarterback to face is.

"You know, I said what I said, and I do believe it, and it's true. But when this guy has the opportunity to set up and throw the ball to his receivers, there's nobody better at pinpointing guys out and making plays for his team. I mean, he's a field general, he's a winner, he's a competitor, and Tom Brady, he's given us some hard times."

Brady has compiled 14 touchdowns to three interceptions in six regular-season games against the Steelers and is 2-0 against Pittsburgh in the playoffs.
