Peyton's little brother had the accomplishment of being on BETTER TEAMS. SB wins are a TEAM ACCOMPLISHMENT.<quoted text>
Obviously not a commentor who uses facts very well. Let me translate.
Peyton Manning has had the absolute best offensive supporting cast in history with only the possibility of the Montana/Young 49ers and Bradshaw Steelers coming up to speed. Many have had good supporting casts but few have won with poor to average offensive support. Given that Manning had all the benefits...Played in a dome, now plays at altitude, CAP space skewed to the offense, probowl receivers etc its a miracle he hasn't won more often, thats on Peyton and in large part to his INTs and chocking in high pressure games. Equally amazing is that Brady who has not played his home games in a dome or at altitude, didn't have probowl receivers on a regular basis and who didn't have CAP skewed towards the offense has kept pace with Manning offensively at least until this year when the Pats had a mind fart and cleared the shelves of any veteran receivers opting for a youth movement. That's why Brady stands out so much over Manning. Given the lack of offensive support Brady has had, it is a miracle that he scored TDs at the same clip as Manning, actually scoring more points, better red zone scoring and better advanced stats. The press has always sung the praises of Manning in respect for his father but his accomplishments earned on the field are less than his little brother. Peyton always wanted the big numbers and that's what he's geared to. Meanwhile Brady was geared to winning and got the numbers anyway.
Bottomline, Manning has done less with more while Brady had done more with less. Not hard to see who the QB of this generation is, unless you're a lemming following the rankings of the Manning loving media.
If Manning wins it all this year so what he should. When he doesn't expect the media to make excuses for him. Brady has no business being in the conversation for a SB appearance, let alone a SB win, yet somehow he is pulling more than just a rabbit out of the hat. Pats without any good receivers have beaten Atlanta, New Orleans and remain undefeated within their division. Word is that Brady is practicing drilling the ball into the face masks of his receivers to limit their drops. Like Jim Brown before him, people didn't know what they had until he was gone. We miss you Jim and its too soon in the coming, we'll miss you too Tom. History will show Manning fits with Favre and Marino (stat players) while Brady will be with the best ever champions (Montana, Graham, Brady)
Nasty Fact: Brady has a lower QB rating this season than Tannehill. Both have mediocre to crappy receivers. T-Hill has a far worse OL.
