I have been stating the obvious for years and few seem to listen, especially sports writers and the media, but here it is again.
Brady is all about winning. Winning is his/the goal. It doesn't matter what his individual stats are as long as they contribute to winning. Often it's when and not how much. Peyton is a how much kind of guy. How much or how many yards/TDs can I get? It all starts with his getting a high completion rate and he should, given that he played with pro bowl receivers his whole career. Add in that his home stadium was a dome that eliminates wind and rain and mud and it makes sense that his passes are not negatively impacted making his numbers higher. More completions mean more yards generally speaking and more yards at least indirectly mean more TDs. Add in one of the best all-time Olines for protection and we can all see that his raw stats should be way ahead of all those lacking these advantages. Funny thing, they are not. If Brady plays less than one more season than Manning he will pass him in every stat category. Brees will pass Peyton less than four years after Peyton retires. And yes, Brees also played much of his career in a dome and with a very good receiving corps as well.
Brady is the only top QB who didn't have receivers with a high degree of skill. That makes his accomplishments all the more exceptional, especially once you realize he has done nothing but win even with out them. Manning has stated much of his career that his goal has been to retire owning all the records. Brady has stated and says here again that he is only concerned about winning. One thing is obvious. You tend to hit what you are focusing on. Manning may obtain his records although only temporarily while Brady will go down in history as the winningest QB of all-time. Al Davis and Herm Edwards would be proud. "Just win baby" & " that's why we play the game".

Didn't realize that Denver and Miami allowed perverts online. Nice to know. Wouldn't want to retire there. Anyone know if that's were America's prisons are located? Could they be out on furlough?
Or is it Peyton and LeBron fans with free time and no class? Doesn't add to their legacies, rather it detracts from them. Good reason for LeBron to go elsewhere. LeBron and Kobe has a nice "ring" to it.
Cleveland is forming a solid foundation if LeBron wants to head home.
If he wants a certain ring, San Antonio and Popovich is the place to be, best teamwork since the Celtics of the 60s.

Well at least we know three things about you. One, you are a obsessed with sex and homosexuality. Two, you are a pervert. And three, you are an idiot. Guys don't need strap-ons. What a moron.:) and when the Attorney Generals get their list of who is who on these Internet sites, won't your family be thrilled to see your donations to the public's education.

The Attorney Generals will be thrilled to find out some guy with Multiple Personality Disorder has such a disturbing crush on Tom Brady. If/when Tom Brady goes missing, expect your door to get kicked by SWAT. At least one of your personalities will be held accountable.

Thanks for the advice. I will mention it to him next time we play cards.
Now here is some advice for you. When you let someone irritate you so much that you lose control of your emotions you have already lost. Take some deep breaths, focus and think of some sound reasons why your love affair with Peyton should convince us that he has not had advantages Brady has not, and that Peyton has nit thrown them all away, literally, by INT. That he is not the favorite of the sports writers as well as the NFL Front Office, and that statistics matter more than victories. If you can convine us that the world should be upside down, then sure, that's when Peyton gets top billing.
Think about it, but don't get upset if you can't find any reasons, they don't exist. Analytical stat guys have been looking for years and can't find any. Just love that funny looking mellon-headed Peyton the way we all do, just don't elevate him beyond where he belongs and we are fine. It's like asking Bill Russell if Michael Jordan was the best ever. He laughed at the guy for so long because you can't take these questions seriously. Anyone who has ever seen Oscar Robertson play in his early days knows, and is why Oscar was picked as the best ever by Red Auerbach, Bill Russell, Wilt Chamberlain and even the NBA themselves, at least until Oscar took them to court and won. Now the NBA says Oscar who.

More of "I know you are but what am I" from your neighborhood children from Miami and Denver. Still no analysis and only playing the cry babies.
In football news Andre Johnson wants off the Texans. He failed to show up for mandatory team drills and issued a statement that he refuses to play for a team going through rebuilding.
Hey, that's a lot like the mouthpieces from Miami and Denver. They have been rebuilding for years and are hoping to actually put out some analysis sometime later this year. More than we can see coming out of the Texans. Biggest mistake was in letting Schaub go. One bad year doesn't mean he lost it. A coaching change could have improved his performance.
Had the Texans hooked Johnson up with Fitzpatrick several weeks ago for one on one drills, he might feel differently about his rebuilding comment.
Looks like Texans will keep him, waste $10M and pick up yet another single digit draft pick in round one.

As usual your focus is off target. The key was getting the new QB whoever he was to get some continuity (look it up) with Johnson. It may not have worked but it would at least be worth the try, at least if the Texans were serious about keeping the standout wide receiver.
Your mind is in the gutter, which is probably where you will end up so at least you are using your visualization techniques for retirement purposes.
The problem with Johnson is that he sees the QB situation as a rebuilding of the team. If he can be persuaded that they are just reloading and not rebuilding, he just might get over his concerns and be willing to stay. Get it? It's a thankless job but someone has to educate these morons.

Your mind is up your colorectal cavity. Fitzpatrick sucks (look it up) and Johnson wants to play catch with a real franchise QB. Get it?

You still lack character. Players do not get what they want. They should be honored to find someone willing to pay them these insane figures for playing a kids game. A little negotiation is necessary.
Fitzpatrick is not a franchise QB but he has had some better than serviceable moments. With a solid team around him, he just might be able to pull a Dilfer. Not likely but possible.

A WR of AJ's character wants a proven elite QB to complement his elite WR skills. You are arguing a lame point just for argument's sake. You lack character, and you smell bad too.

Like a child who can't have his way, your tantrums are getting tiresome. Time to grow up. Ask your parens for help, hater.
Sorry not enough Bradys and Rodgers to go around. Sometimes you just have to settle for a Cutler or a Manning.

That's true. Manning will go down as the greatest choke artist of all time, having never met expectations. Cutler will just be another serviceable to good QB, yet he has more years left so he could surprise us. Little is expected of Cutler so any good play is gravy. Peyton was a number one pick that has never fulfilled expectations, though he was along for the ride that one year when he averaged 230 yards per post season game and had 3 TDs with 7 Interceptions. And a losing record in SBs and a losing record in post season and lost to 3 of 4 winning AFC teams last year when the media coronated him, and and and.
Notice I didn't mention Brady once, oh darn.
