Peyton Manning bests Tom Brady in ESPN.com's quarterback voting - ESPN Apparently, Manning is better at a last-minute drive... even after his superbowl pick six and Brady's drives for the superbowl winning FGs. History will also remember Manning more... rather than Brady's three superbowl rings and 16-0 season. Manning is also smarter... because he makes fewer mistakes throwing into coverage? Manning is also the better lead... despite Brady's constant displays of leadership. The older Manning also has more years left than Brady... because of Brady's injury two years ago? Oh, let's not forget the best one... Manning would make a better coach because Brady has long hair.
