~ Most people who vastly overrate Manning do so because of Stats. But if you actually LOOK at Stats, Brady has CRUSHED Manning since we finally gave him weapons on equal footing with Manning's, in 2007:
TDs + 15
INTs per year.
TDs + 8
INTs per year.
* Manning plays about 14 games a season in the pleasure dome or other comfy places.
* Brady plays about 14 games a year in New England and other rough spots.
Are those two guys in the same CLASS???
~ Championships. Brady is up, 3 to 0, unless you count the one that the refs stole from us, by dint of that phantom Pass Interference call on Hobbs that was so hideously blatant that the ref was actually required to pen a formal letter of apology to Hobbs. If you count THAT one, 2006, then it's FOUR to nothing, thank you very MUCH.
~ PlayOff Record. Brady is Vince Lombardi. Manning is Marty Schottenheimer.
And if anybody's fact-challenged enough to suggest that our Defense's prowess in any way dilutes that dominance, here's a news flash: Since 2004, in terms of Points Allowed ~ the measure that COUNTS ~ the Colts have finished Top 8 4 out of 6 times, and Top 2 twice...Yet Manning led his team to defeat in the PlayOffs, every one of those 4 years.
I have IMMENSE respect for Manning, as is well documented, to the annoyance of many.
But when the bullets are flying, against the best teams in the league, in the biggest games of all, Brady moves the chains and wins Championships...while Manning CHOKES.
And isn't THAT how you separate the Great Ones from all of the rest???

Well said, sir.
Couldn't agree more.

The only reason Manning had a higher career passer rating (right now Brady's is higher) is because Manning got to play so many more games indoors. But since 2010, the gulf in ratings has become large enough to swamp that advantage.
