Cudos to Peyton. Unfortunately included in that total are four TDs that weren't. The most recent being the juggling act of Decker through the end zone yesterday which was seen by all. Still think Peyton will get the record legitimately with four more against Oakland. It's just that the record will be artificially raised by four more than it should, but that's the NFL loving the Mannings. What can you do? Happy for Manning, he gets what he wants which is stats and records and Brady gets what he wants which is beating Manning and another shot at a SB despite having no reason why he should be there given his no support teammates. Maybe one day we will get sports writers with educations who can differentiate between value and raw stats. For the uneducated, Manning has stats, because he has the best offensive support in the league, while Brady has value, because he gets performance out of minimally gifted players that are not really NFL ready. Clearly it should be Manning for offensive player of the year and Brady for MVP. But that's only if the deck isn't stacked, which it almost always is, and in favor of the Mannings. As usual I'm left cleaning up the NFL's mess.

If Peyton Manning would like to go down in history as Really Special he should tell the sports writers that it is O.K. to vote him the offense player of the year award, but that the MVP should go to the player that truly exhibits value by winning when it seemed winning was not possible for that players team. Top two candidates this year would be Brady and Jamal Charles. Can you imagine the history books identifying that Peyton actually turned down an MVP and suggested it go to his greatest competitor, Brady. He would forever be revered as a football great. And a lot greater than just another player who accepted an award he didn't deserve. It would raise his integrity level and multiply those who already lose him to include those in the New England area that support Brady. Best move Peyton could make. Unfortunately Peyton is so me, me that releasing a penny to make a dollar will never happen. Peyton screws up again and it's not even cold and windy this time.

I'm not sure, but I think Peyton has the record or at least tied with Farve on "one and done" playoff games.(Chokes) I look forward to another choke this season. This is a record you won't hear the reporters talking about.

KC is no more a joke than any other team that made the postseason. Although Denver and Peyton could be a joke considering the Broncos lost to every team with a winning record they played this season with the exception on one, and Manning was credited with 4 more TDs and 7 more yards than he actually earned. Must be nice to have the NFL in your pocket and get accolade after accolade you haven't really earned on the field of play. Didn't realize the NFL was so scared of losing their viewing public that they had to create make believe heroes for marketing purposes. What is really a shame is that Peyton without the NFLs help would have gone down in history as an exceptional player. Now he will be scrutinized and ridiculed for receiving awards he didn't deserve and more so his lack of integrity for accepting awards and records he didn't earn on the field but was awarded in the smoke filled back room of the NFL and News Media. Like the man said, he could have been a contender, now he is just a wannabe who turned out the clown.

brady needs defenders like you

talk about a fraud

he's a .500 QB in the playoffs since 2004

And still at .500 which is Brady's worst spell, it still is better than Manning who has yet to come up to the .500 mark. So what you are really saying is that Brady at his worst is still better than Manning at his best. Not sure I agree with that, but you are on the right track finally.
Consider
Brady has a tougher mental makeup
Brady has a stronger arm
Brady wins against the league more
Brady beats Manning more
Brady has more postseason victories
Brady has more rings
However
Manning has better receivers
Manning has better protection
Manning played in windless dome
Manning plays at altitude
Seems
Manning should have better stats than he does
Manning should win more
Manning should beat Brady more
Manning should have more postseason victories
Manning should have more rings
But he doesn't because
Manning throws more INTs
Manning throws INTs at the worst possible moment
Manning chokes despite having the best offensive team

And your point?
Being forced to watch the donkeys because of where I live I will say this.
He's easier to watch than Teblow even with his playoff failures
I had to watch that jackass bounce passes and miss open receivers too many Sunday afternoons.

I feel your pain. Peyton is excellent, just not as excellent as the league makes him out to be. Did you know...four of his touchdowns this year were not TDs? Bounce passes and juggled balls accepted as receptions gave him 55. Still legitimately holds the record at 51. Then there is the debacle of his yards passing record where the league acknowledged 7 of his yards were a lateral but then decreed the record is still his because they say so. Funny how when Brady hit Gronk for a TD to set a record they disallowed it for the exact same reason. Nice to have a league that watches out for your own personal best interests but not the other guys. When asked about it Peyton just says the league makes the calls and does what they are going do. Peyton is clearly waiting until he retires to grow up, become a man and practice integrity.
Did you know Peyton has said he wants to hold all the QB records before he retires. With the help of the NFL front office he just might, got to love those bounce passes. Too bad he didn't mention anything about winning or teammates but only his own selfish desires for records. Fun to watch for sure, but one screwed up individual by his own comments and behavior.

Ever wonder why he jokes around all the time? People who do that don't live in the real world.

Nope. It would fly in the face of all he has been saying his entire career, that he wants all the raw number records that Favre currently holds.
Why would anyone give up while having the best offensive line protection-wise and the best stable of receivers in existence. They afford him a chance to put up more big numbers and another SB. If he retired, a top ten QB could win with what Peyton leaves behind and that would drive Peyton nuts knowing someone else is getting accolades that could have been his.

Only way Peyton Manning will retire is when his skills can no longer add to his legacy. Once they start to detract from it, then and only then will he call it quits. I did my part now it's someone else turn to close him out.

Yep. Just like a cheater.After Denver stole two Supre Bowls in 1997 and 1998. They Circumvented the league's salary cap to the tune of 29 million in deferred payments to John Elway and running back Terral Davis. Then three years later hit with the same infraction. This was a lot worse than pointing a camera at a sideline in my opinion.

Well the patriots are known for cheating, so it is what it is.
