Tom Brady loves himself some Andrew Luck.

The best NFL quarterback the Bay Area has produced in recent memory praised the best quarterback Stanford has produced in the past seveal decades or longer – since John Elway, debatably – in a recent interview, according to reports.

The Palo Alto Daily News picked up on a press conference outside of Boston, where Brady's Patriots are preparing to meet Luck's Colts – a game of interest for Bay Area football fans, given the two quarterbacks' pedigrees.

Luck "does a lot of things I wish I could do," said Brady, the former NFL MVP and nine-time All-Pro said. "He's big, fast, shrugs off blockers. He makes a lot of extended plays. He's a great passer."

"He's a great player."

Brady, 37, was also a sixth-round NFL draft pick as opposed to Luck, who was one of the top choices in the draft.

Luck, for his part, says he's focused only on the Patriots defense and how to beat it – not on who the quarterback is.
