A good friend enlightened me that Willie Mays was a better player than anyone on the Yankees during his career yet it was the Yankees that won the World Series most often during that double decade period. Isn't that what we have in the NFL right now. Tom Brady playing the part of Mr. Mays is superior to Peyton who is on a far superior team that should win it all. Although they should have won it last year except for a Manning interception. Would love to see a Brady for Manning trade straight up so Brady could win the next five SBs and put all debate to an end. That trade, will never happen. Only thing of interest left is whether Manning will self destruct again or if he can finally live up to writers expectations.

Self destruct it is at least this night as the Chargers handle the Broncos to a surprise defeat and it wasn't all that cold or windy by Foxboro standards.
Let's see now, Brady has the Pats in the top seed position despite losses to the Jets and Panthers decided by the referees and not on the field and despite having no offense to speak of while Peyton has his fantastic offense in second position. If the MVP is really meant for value, hence most valuable player, it should be clear to even the moronic sports writers that Brady alone could lead a team as decimated as the Pats to a top seed while anyone could have led the Broncos to a second seed. Only goes to show you that the award is fixed as it always has been towards Peyton. How else can you explain his getting support in a year he didn't play, and then getting support this year for stats alone. Stats are a means to an end, unfortunately Peyton has always gone after the stats while Brady has gone after the wins. Attitude alone tells me Brady is more valuable. Brady once said he would rather get punched in the face than lose a game. By the looks of them Brady hasnt been punched as often as Manning. He also hasn't lost anywhere near as many games as Peyton, and head to head its Brady all the way and still the sports writers simply pass Brady by due to their jealousy of what they call his perfect life. A life and legacy they feel it is their duty to lessen.
