Just a though
Manning has the extra benefit of playing at altitude
Manning has the extra benefit of playing with more experienced receivers
Manning has the extra benefit of playing with bigger, stronger, better receivers
Manning has the extra benefit of playing with familiar receivers
Manning has the extra benefit of playing with healthy players
Manning has the extra benefit of playing with Wes Welker who he got from NE
Manning has the extra benefit of playing with a defense that is top five
Brady has only one advantage and that is that he is Brady and not Manning
So what excuse will the media come up with this year when Brady is either on Mannings heels or actually performs better yet again.
And this year with Brady's supporting cast being so limited, it should be difficult for even the lemmings to overlook all the facts to say Manning is better.
Jerry West once won a playoff MVP Award despite losing, if they judge on a level playing field, those same judges would have to give serious consideration to Brady if he can be competitive given the inferior "groceries" he will have to "cook" with.
Unfortunately for Manning, the SB is his to lose with odds at 7/2. Meanwhile any kind of winning run Brady can put together will only show just how good he really is, even with rookies, newbies and a defense that needs work.
Gimmee your best shot, the facts await your best attempts to twist them.
#10355 Aug 14, 2013
I concur that protection is vital, you got that one right, but you got your facts backward yet again, and again. Manning had the better protection and by a lot, over 50% better.
Do any of you Peyton lovers ever do your homework, or do you just make it up as you go?
Since all the high IQ guys can see the facts point to Brady, I can only assume that leaves slim Pickens in the brain department for Manning lovers.
Manning has been sacked 252 times in 14 years. That's 252/14=18 sacks er year.
Brady has been sacked 303 times in 11 years. That's 303/11=27.5 sacks per year.
Brady is sacked 52.78% more than Manning.
How in the world is that better protection?
Yet another Manning fan who doesn't know the facts,
And that's the only way you can lift Manning to Brady's level.
When you make the numbers up in your head and disregard the facts, yeah, Manning IS better.
And I'm just a bar tender. What's your excuse or puting your brain on hold?
#10356 Aug 14, 2013
Hey, this is for the guy called "Correction"
Funny how everything you post has been proven wrong.
Think you might wanna change your handle to misdirection.:D
Or maybe just going where the truth leads you.
Hate cleaning up after you guys.
#10357 Aug 14, 2013
Wow!!! Didn't know that. So let me get his straight. Manning had
Better protection by a lot (52%).
Better receivers by a lot (pro bowlers and HoFers for 15 yrs).
And Manning still threw 32% more INTs than an "inferior" Brady.
Mannings argument for being better just took a tsuami-like hit.
Then add to that:
Manning played in places that gives him a stat advantage by a lot (Indy Dome & at altitude in Denver).
And still has an "inferior" QB like Brady matching him TD for TD (1.9 TDs per game).
Think Brady bashers should rethink their positions.
How could anyone keep up, let alone surpass a QB with all the added benefits Manning had?
Wow, if this Manning guy is as good as advertised what does that make Brady?
The answer is......dundundah.....BETTER!! ! And BETTER by a lot. Probably why he holds all the winning records. Even head to head, Brady beats Manning at better than a 2-1 clip.
#10358 Aug 14, 2013
And don't forget when it comes to paying against the good teams like in the playoffs, Brady is 17-7 .777% while Manning is 9-11 .450% and that's a losing record, not even mediocre. That means Manning makes his name beating up on the crappy teams during the regular season with all his advantages especially at home, but when he has to play equally good teams or on a level playing field, it's a different story.
Peyton is a pretender when compared to Brady. Really good and better than most but not in Brady's class. Not even in Montana's class.
#10359 Aug 14, 2013
Concur with your intent yet you left the door open for these guys you call Brady bashers to say OK maybe Peyton is not better, but they are both on the same level, when they are not.
Instead of hilighting reasons why Peyton is not better than Brady, you should also insist that the facts clearly identify that Brady is far superior, at least to date (pun intended on the to date part, Gisele agrees). Others may come that surpass Brady but for now Brady is king of the hill, and Peyton isn't close.
#10360 Aug 15, 2013
I have never heard Tom Brady say a negative word. But I also have never heard him give God the Glory for the talents he has received. If Tom wants to maximize his career, and avoid injury, he would do well to recognize publicly his gratefulness to where God has placed him.
#10361 Aug 15, 2013
stats don't lie
#10362 Aug 16, 2013
Brady has more postseason wins than any NFL QB in history. This says a lot because he has not played as many years as many of the notable QBs yet still outdistances himself from them despite playing fewer years. Brady has more postseason wins that Favre, Montana, Bradshaw, Elway, Marino and Peyton to name a few.
What is striking, is that Brady has played in 4 more playoff games than Manning and has done so despite playing 3 less years. This means that he played deeper into the playoffs and against better teams, and still compiled a 17-7 reord (NFL Record Wins), while Manning has a 9-11 losing record despite playing an easier schedule (not as deep into the playoffs).
Add to this the following advantages Manning has had over not just Brady, but against the entire league, and you may be shocked.
Manning played in both the Indy Dome and at altitude which inflates his stats
Manning had better receivers (pro bowlers and HoFers) that Brady did not with the exception of one year with Moss.
Manning had better protection 252 sacks/14 yrs=18 per year
To Brady's 303 sacks/11yrs=27.5 per year (53% better)
Soooo.....better protection, with better receivers and in a dome and at altitude to inflate his stats (reason he went to Denver?), yet Brady matches him at 1.9 TDs per game and with all the advantages Manning had he still threw 209 INTs to Brady's 123 INTs. That's 32.7% more per game.
Seems clear Brady is far superior. Not sure how anyone can put them on the same
level. Unless you are talking about height, then it's Manning by an inch.
#10363 Aug 16, 2013
Peyon Manning is an exceptional QB, BUT he has had advantages that inflate his stats like no other QB in history. These advantages separate him from most other QBs yet not Tom Brady. With all these advantages he appears better than most yet still does not reach the pinnacle atop which Brady resides. And when factored out, he may be just a mid-pack QB. Consider...
Peyton inflated his stats by playing in the Indy Done then at altitude in Denver.
Peyton had probowl and HoFers receivers while Brady and many others do not.
Peyton had 252sacks/14 yrs=18 per yr to Brady's 303sacks/11yrs=27,5per yr (53%diff)
Sooo....better protection, better receivers and inflated stats yet still Brady matched him with an identical 1.9 TD per game rate. How did he do that? Awesome QB that's how.
Meanwhile with all those advantages Peyton still ended up throwing 209 INTs to Brady's 123INTs. That's 32.7% more INTs per game.
Now add in that Brady has played in 4 more playoff games in 3 less yrs and you realize that this is only possible because Brady takes his team deeper into the playoffs which means he plays tougher opponents, and yet Brady still posts a 17-7 record to Manning 9-11. That means Manning loses sooner to easier competition. Further analysis shows that Peyton beats up on teams during the season using his advantages above, but when it comes time to play the tougher competition his record is not even mediocre but a losing recrd at 9-11. It's clear that Manning is not on Brady's level unless you are talking height, then Manning is ahead by an inch.
#10364 Aug 16, 2013
Tony, sorry to duplicate your idea, but you said they would put it up for a few seconds and then take it down. Thought they might keep my attempt up due to past experiences. thanks for the thoughts. You know I wouldn't have posted unless I thought the concepts were good. Respectfully...
P.S. funny how yours wasn't there until I posted mine hmmm?

Not quite. Grading papers other than objective tests is always a very subjective thing, much like judging a beauty contest or a figure skating competition. There will rarely be any exact agreement with the judges. All I am saying is that there is no conclusive way of proving that one is clearlybetter than the other. At the rate Rodgers has been performing, he appears to be a candidate for the greatest. What is so horrible about the thought of the two of them being in a dead heat now that you bring up the A+ vs. A argument? Not everything that comes from the mouth of babes is logically sound.
#10366 Aug 16, 2013
You have presumed that I will twist the facts which puts the conclusion in the premise. You failed Logic 101. And as usual, you make subjective statements about Manning's supposed better situation without trying to present any credible proof of your statement which would not play well with the judges in a formal debate.
#10367 Aug 16, 2013
Manning lost to the same team this year where he led the offense to a 35 point production vs. Brady's 13. Brady had the misfortune of playing the Ravens earlier than Brady did and both threw two interceptions vs. Balt. Brady tends to hold on to the ball longer ( some experts say too long) than Manning waiting for receivers to get open which will increase both his completion pct. and his sacks. Back to square one. Insufficient hard data to declare one or the other the best. Are you a Tom Brady fan or a Patriots fan? Being that I am no fan of the Colts, Broncos, or Patriots, that puts me in a better position to be objective. Not all advantages can be accurately measured and many of your so-called Manning advantages may not be as clear cut as you would want me to believe. Don't forget Brady's failure in two straight Super Bowls vs. a team that was a substantial underdog. It also is not always the QBs fault for a loss as the QB is not responsible for missed tackles and blown coverages by his defensive teammates.
#10368 Aug 16, 2013
If Brady is sacked more, it is for two reasons. He is slow and plodding and he holds on to the ball longer than most QBs making him more prone to a sack. One won't throw interceptions while holding the ball while lying flat on one's back. A sack can also stall a drive and/or require a time out to be taken if the QB is attempting to bring the team from behind in the closing minutes. There is no objective way of proving who played his career behind the better offensive lines.
#10369 Aug 16, 2013
Perhaps the higher interception total is due to his willingness to take chances when his team is behind late in the game. And many of those stats you quoted are no more valid than Sabermetrics are for Baseball. Sabermetrics dogmatically state that a player needs two stolen bases for every caught stealing to break even in run scoring. That relationship totally falls apart when there are two out and a runner on first as a successsful steal of second would require one single instead of two singles or an extra base hit to score the runner in most instances and makes a stolen base attempt at that point a better gamble than with less than two outs. I suspect the same can be said about some of these fancy football stats. All that aside, I went to Pro Footbal reference .com and looked at advanced passing rating and it seemed like Manning Topped Brady in all but one stat. Here is another interesting stat. Manning has a considerably better QB rating in the 2nd half of games as he generally played better in the 2nd half than the 1st which was the opposite of Brady. On passes thrown after a players 30th pass in a game, Manning was about 15 points higher in passer ratings. That sounds like a better clutch player to me. There are all different ways to examine statistics and try to come up with an answer For every advantage Brady has over Manning, it seems like there seems to be an almost equal number of advantages that Manning has which means that I will wait until both are retired before trying to draw conclusions as to who was the better of the two and even then, I may still find it too close to call. The more we debate, the more that it seems like a near dead heat between the two.
#10370 Aug 16, 2013
The stats for first and 2nd halves of games was for 2012, BTW. Brady played better in the 1st half in general while Manning had better 2nd half stats.
#10371 Aug 16, 2013
The Patriots without Beady generally fared much better than the Colts without Manning. Last year, both Bronco top receivers gained more yards in one season than they did the previous two combined. Looks like Manning greatly improves his wideouts, don't ya think? With Welker in the slot this year, the sky's the limit.
#10372 Aug 16, 2013
Actually, the top three Bronco wide receivers caught more passes last year than in their previous two seasons and their TE nearly tripled his number of catches from the previous season. Looks more like Manning made the receivers better rather than the other way around.
