Yes if a QB can take you to an afc title game with that crap bunch of weapons, that means its time to go.....who writes this crap. So if we want to stop making the playoffs, and want higher draft picks, then yes, getting rid of Brady is the way to go.

I agree, Brady needs to go.

This has been the mantra of every Dolphin fan for over a decade. Not gonna happen. Would be nice is he had some weapons. If Brady can take a team to the AFC title game and be one illegal takedown of Talib away from the SB with that crap offense, imagine what he could do with a team stacked like Denver. Even Tebow and Manning got them in the playoffs.

As has Manning and Welker. The difference, Manning and Welker decided to hurt another player and endanger his career because he was shutting Manning down. Won't go down well historically.

You're surprised?

Patriots haven't won the Super Bowl in a decade. Their QB is getting to be to old too. It's over.

Brady couldn't even beat Eli in two Super Bowls.

He can't beat wacko Flacco or old man Manning ( 4 neck surgeries) in AFC title games recently.

Noticed you said this elsewhere. It shows a lack of reasoning on your part because of many factors. most of them deficiencies in your grey matter.
Manning is older than Brady so age is less a factor than the team around them that makes a difference.
Eli had a great defensive line and better receivers to facilitate a win and that after Samuels dropped the game winning INT in game one and Welker dropping the game winner in game 2. Had they caught those passes, Brady would be a five time SB winner and 4 time SB MVP. Events didn't change what and who Brady is only the perception by lesser men.

Yet Brady hasn't won a Super Bowl in a decade. It is what it is.

Isn't Peyton only a year older than Brady?

Age is nothing but a number but they both are about to be to old to be in the NFL.

Your statement is accurate that Brady is only one+ years younger and hasn't won a Super Bowl in a decade. But again, had his teammate caught passes, passes that were in their hands on two occasions, he would have had wins in both 2009 and again in 2011. Comments like the one you put forth...it is what it is...are not valid arguments for a position. They only prove you have limited verbage from which to explain yourself and thus limited analytical capability. It's clear you like Manning. It's also clear that the Press favors Manning regardless of the circumstance. Yet the men who build the actual teams have said they prefer Brady to lead a team and they do so at a near 90% rate of preference. A reasonable man would wonder why the men who supposedly know the game the best would all so lopsidedly want Brady over Manning while the press pushes Manning at you on a daily basis. Find the answer to this question and your viewpoint could change dramatically. But just knowing the teams themselves favor having Brady should be enough to tell that Brady is the better choice. I think it's because Brady needs very little to be successful while Manning needs a lot. The term the team managers use is that Brady does more with less. Hope this helps you in your quest for the truth and improves your researching ability.

The only thing I like about Manning is that he chose to not be a victim ( 4 neck surgeries) and play on his terms without giving up.

I'm a big fan of Newton, Wilson, etc.

So continue to wallow on an old man that is just about done. He had his run but the window is closed for championships.

As the saying goes, "It is what it is."

I wish you were an anomaly, but unfortunately you are like too many of the current population. Young and stupid. You say you praise Manning for not giving up due to his neck surgery but you say Brady has no hope and should give up (why because he had knee surgery?). Clearly it's not the fact that Manning hasn't given up, that gains your respect. You can't even realize that you are lieing to yourself and us. Think about it, try and figure out your real reasons and let us know the truth, not the media sound bites you subscribe too.
P.S. why would Manning give up now? He has the best offensive players to support him on both the line and at receiver. Meanwhile Brady had his defense decimated and has no receivers to go with a patched up line. Seems if you were honest, you'd respect Brady more for not giving up, especially given the circumstances. And guess what, 90% of the GMs still like Brady better. Like who you want, just know how the GMs think about them.

......a decade? They won in Feb of 2005....do they teach math where you live? What do you mean Brady could not beat....QB....Brady plays against the defense, he is not playing Eli, they are not playing ping pong....the fact that Brady took that mess to the afc title game tells me he is the best QB in the league....Manning had the best set of wideouts in football and still flubbed in the superbowl....which is not uncommon for him.....Brady has the most playoff wins of any Qb in history, he just took a set of wideouts that would not make any squad in the NFL to the an afc title game....you need football IQ help

Ok, so according to you Brady hasn't won a Super Bowl since '05. Now that's a long time isn't it. It's rhetorical.

By the way, he certainly couldn't beat the Giants now could he. What's up with that perfect season???

So go sip on some haterade and stop wallowing in the past.

Always nice to welcome another sane fan who can speak the kings english and has analytical skills. Glad to have you aboard. Too many sofa sitting sound bite regurgitatiers around to recognize someone other than the media's favorite son, Manning. Too many of these guys think that bigger numbers means better QB, and fail to take into consideration the quality of support each QB is getting (from teammates, to home field advantage (or disadvantage), league officials, and sports writers). Too many buy, hook line and sinker, whatever the media paints because they lack the ability to identify the specific parameters that pertain and lack the skills necessary to analyze the situation themselves. Either that or selective hearing so they can present their preferences as truths. The fact that you agree with the GMs/Owners and not the fans, tells me you are a cut above. Cudos, you are a rare bird.

Michael Jordan couldn't win either until his coaches got him some quality players to support him. Brady is in that same boat. Only quality WR he has ever had was Moss, and then he lit it up in their first year together while it took Peyton 2 years.
To save you the embarrassment, TEs and slot receivers are not WRs and only get paid half as much because they can't do what a WR can do.
Lastly, raising questions that don't pertain or that you should already have an answer for, as well as rude, nasty language only outs you as being uneducated or a troll, could be both. Learn some manners and the games basics, then come back and try again. Like the Mensa guys have already identified, the less educated gravitate toward Peyton, the media and big numbers alone.

Since the facts are all on my side, that's leaving you only your wits to respond. You got the gun but you got no ammo. That leaves name calling and you can only speak that which you know. Sorry to hear you were abused and now only lash out at others when they correct you. How else will you ever improve? Or don't you want to?
