    vote for Brady over Manning, "which QB would you rather have"

    IndyStar has a stats breakdown and online poll over "which QB would you rather have"

    Now it is 54%-46% Manning, amazingly close considering the site is the Indianapolis newspaper

    It would be funny to see Tom win the poll.

    vote early, vote often (every 30 minutes)

    Nice. The balance isn't as overwhelmingly in favor for Manning as it was yesterday.

    Indy Star is actually a pats fan troll takeover site. We're lucky as you goad Colts and other teams fans here that Ian doesn't allow something like that to happen here...

    Re: vote for Brady over Manning, "which QB would you rather have"

    To the other IT folks out there:
    I'm wondering how they determine that 30 minute timer? Probably by recording MAC (physical) address of network card and IP address. You could easily change either of these and vote as often as you want. Even better someone that knows how to program better than me could create a script or bot to do this for you every second and vote. Just a thought.... ;)

    That would be great. Then maybe someone from Indy would decide to retaliate and knock this place off the map for a couple days...

    Honestly, wish some of you children would just go back to the smack talking idiotic ESPN boards where you belong.

    In What Ways is Peyton Manning a Better QB than Brady: The Ultimate Homer Test

    I can't tell if I'm actually eager to read responses, or if I am simply eager to perform a social experiment on Homerism.

    Ok guys, here's the deal. First off, I admit fully that this may not be the week to post this thread. My apologies if this angers anyone. Especially those who want to believe we're gonna light it up in Indy. I for one DO think we are going to win, although we are goign to need to bring our A game.

    BUT

    There's been a million threads on Brady Vs. Mannings, and who is better. I'm NOT IN ANY WAY ASKING that. I am not asking who is better. I am simply asking even the biggest Brady fans (of which I consider us all) to concede a single way in which Peyton Manning is a better Quarterback than Brady.

    To clarify, I just want to hear from anyone willing to offer just one part of Peyton Mannings game that is better than Bradys. I don't want to hear about why Brady is better, nor do I want this to devolve into a thread about who is the better QB. I just want to see if anyone can get past their homerism for even a minute and search for a single part of Peyton's game that could be better than Bradys.

    So, let's hear it. Obviously, I'd prefer it if the trolls stayed out of this one. Is anyone able to look at the two completely objectively?

    EDIT: I figure the Colts fans are going to respond anyway, so for them, I simply ask in what ways Brady is a better QB than Peyton?

    Rules of the game: Patriot fans can't say ways Brady is better, and Colts fans can't say about ways Peyton is better. It has to be the opposite. In what ways is your nemesis better than your hero. This seems like a very evil question to ask..that is, if anyone is willing to respond.

    let's not get greedy...just vote every 30 minutes if you're at your desk so they can't say someone tried to win by hacking...

    Re: In What Ways is Peyton Manning a Better QB than Brady: The Ultimate Homer Test

    Fair question.

    Peyton throws better on the run. Not that he is good on the run....but Tom is one of the worst passers I've seen when he scrambles out of the pocket. This includes throwing off the back foot, or throwing off the "back pedal." Manning is surprisingly accurate; most QBs are not.

    Peyton has a quicker release on the ball. Tom's is pretty quick, but no one matches Peyton there.

    On the 10-15 yard route, especially a sideline pattern, Manning is probably the most accurate quarterback I have seen. He puts the ball in pinpoint location about 95% of the time. Brady is good also, but Manning is phenomenal.

    That's all I can think of right now.

    I think Manning throws better on the move, sets his feet and throws the ball better and has a better deep ball.

    Brady moves around better while in the pocket and seems to have more intangibles in terms of leadership and confidence.

    Peyton is better at throwing the ball up for grabs praying for a PI call.

    Manning is funnier.

    He's also better at having a big forehead.

    Manning is unrivalled at delivering "Manning-face".

    And throwing his offensive line under the bus. :D

    Re: In What Ways is Peyton Manning a Better QB than Brady: The Ultimate Homer Test

    Manning has nothing on Brady. He is one of the best QBs ever but he is not in the big leagues as far as clutch performers are concerned.

    Also I find it interesting that Dome players seem to have big yardage.

    Look at the huge jump in yardage that Drew Brees has had since he went to New Orleans.
    Brett Favre is having his best season for some time and he is playing home games in a dome for the first time.
    And only two rookie QBs have thrown for over 3,000 yards and they are Peyton Manning and Matt Ryan.

    It's a tough one. I'm not sure either one does anything significantly better than the other.

    Manning's play fakes are better.

    Manning perhaps takes better advantage when he gets single coverage on Wayne, Clark, or Harrison in previous years. But again, that may just be a perception from rooting against them.
