Tom Brady always wins when he talks QB 'wins'
For New England Patriots and Tom Brady fans who get offended every time someone writes something about how great he isn't right now, here's a reminder that all of us still think he's in the debate for the greatest of all time.

Bashing Brady is what the networks have to do in order to create a rivalry with their favorite son, Peyton Manning. Without rivalries the NFL loses viewers and that spells money.
If you recall this past years Super Bowl, you might remember that the SeaHawks were surprised that Peyton had trouble with their basic set defense, and when they added the wrinkles he really had trouble. Seattle had bought into the media's reporting that said Peyton was a mastermind at reading defenses. As far as Seattle's defense goes, Peyton didn't read it well because he couldn't. Peyton was used to playing against poor defenses all season long. In fact he lost to 3 of the 4 teams that had a winning record in the AFC. All facts.
Dial back a few years and remember what Ray Lewis said. When asked who the best QB was he responded immediately identifying Brady. When asked why, he said the only way to beat Brady is to put pressure on him up the middle because if it come from the outside he just steps up into the pocket and picks you apart. When asked about Peyton, Lewis responded that they could beat Peyton in two (not one) different ways. The first being the same as Brady, by getting him off his spot. The second reason shot holes in Peyton mastermind hyperbole that the media presents on a daily basis. According to Lewis, Peyton predetermins what he is going to do based on his pre-snap read while Brady is constantly taking in information based on the movement of the defense. Manning gets away with it because he has always had such great receivers and a great Oline for protection, and is no slouch himself, while Brady has had no name receivers most of his career. Lewis also added that against Brady it was rare to get that game changing turnover since he throws INTs so rarely, but when it comes to Peyon his team knew how to bate Peyton into giving up that game winning pick. In the eyes of arguably the greatest middle linebacker to ever play, the guy who is the defense's quarterback, when asked who was the best, he didn't even have to think about it.

The reason Ray Lewis didn't have to think about it (which QB was the best) was because there really is no sound comparison between anyone else and Brady. Just last week Rex Ryan's former defensive coordinator who is the Brown's new Head Coach said that Brady is without a rival, he is just that good. Would seem strange that someone in the league his many years would forget about Peyton, Brees and Rodgers. Or maybe he just knows a little something about the difficulty involved in stopping Brady even when he has no receivers and an offensive line that resembles a revolving door. Looks like Brady took it to heart when he heard Al Davis scream "just win baby".
Most Super Bowls played in says a lot of Brady. Then add in most wins in NFL Post Season History, and it screams at you. Adding in best winning percentage for a career (almost 100 points higher than Peyton and 50 points higher than Montana) and you see a guy who stands without a rival. NFL coaches and players say so.

Scientists: Camel Flatulence Isn’t Contributing to Climate Change
"Methane emission was measured from three camelid species, including, for the first time, Bactrian camels,” the conclusion states.“Our findings indicate that, in absolute values, camelids produce clearly less CH4 than ruminants, and that this difference is most likely due to the generally reduced metabolism, food and (digestible) fiber intake of this group.”
