I'm well aware that Manning was in the AFC East at one point, back when he sucked. Was witness to his first game vs the Patriots and he threw about 400 INT's that game, he was God awful.
He is a stat machine, no doubt about it. he has better career stats than Brady, no doubt about that either.
Brady has 3 rings, Manning has 1.
This "debate" in this thread started when Einstein the Bills fan said he'd take Manning over Brady because "Manning is more clutch."
See above; 3 vs 1, who is clutch again?
WHEN THE MONEY IS ON THE LINE, I'll take Brady over Gomer any day of the week and twice on Sunday.
Gomer crapped his pants in 2004 vs the Patriots in the regular season (first and goal at the 7 and he couldn't close the deal) and in the playoffs (highest scoring offense in NFL history at the time and he put up ZERO touchdowns, a grand total of 3 points), in 2005 vs the Steelers (when he had a CLEAR road to the Super Bowl), in 2007 in the regular season vs the Patriots (fumbled on the last drive) and vs the Chargers in the playoffs in 2007 and 2008 (the 2008 8-8 Chargers by the way).
