    That Tom Brady is definitely a better QB than Pay-aton (I believe it was Colin Cowherd).......After Manning embarrassed himself the other night with 6 INT'S......this commentator on Espn Sports radio stated...(paraphrasing) "You know....All these years Peyton has had Marvin Harrison who has caught everything thrown his way......and then you add in a superstar like Wayne, and a clutch guy like Clark.....to go along with Harrison...and you have incredible weapons for him to throw to"...."NOW, you take away his PRIMARY, legendary receiver that it may be proven ......"made Manning look good"....and all of a sudden Peyton Manning is struggling......He doesn't look so good.....Hey, Tom Brady has been playing with average to slightly above average WR's his WHOLE Career.......until now...Now Brady has great weapons and he is re-writing QB history...unreal......And Brady always got it done...with average players and superstars.....Made the plays when he had to......threw very few INT's.......led game winning drive with a no name cast......Clearly, Tom Brady is the better QB of the two........and is the GREATEST QB IN THE HISTORY OF THE NFL.......

    Anyways, believe it was on the "Herd" that I heard this on.....will try to find a link.....would make sense though as Cowherd isn't afraid to take the controversial position in the media

    I think he (or whoever it was) is DEAD ON........Manning without ALL PRO weaponry is just a GOOD QB...Tom Brady is LEGENDARY....with whoever suits up...........Gotta love him....GO PATS!!!!

    Hopefully the rest of the media herd will follow this bellwether ...

    This is the point that everyone has been missing. Tom Brady finally has the same weapons that Manning has had for years.

    BUT he is not merely equalling Manning, he is SURPASSING him.

    33 TD's 4 INT's in 9 games? Its not even close.

    Out of Brady's 6 receivers last year, only 1 has caught just 1 pass this entire season, the others have caught zero. Brady still finished with a 2:1 TD to INT ratio. We also barely missed making the Superbowl last year. Don't forget Rodney and Wilson were out in the AFC Champ game.

    Now, with *only* Wayne and Addai, Manning throws 6 interceptions. It's just so funny.

    I won't even go into playoff career stats, where Tom Brady owns Peyton Manning even though Manning has had the weapons and Tom hasn't.

    The Herd is an entertaining show, but really, are we going to jump on the Herd bandwagon now that he has said something nice about a Pat? Colin is the same guy that was constantly bashing BB during (and well after) spygate.

    I know it is part of being on radio but I cant respect someone like him that always speaks in absolutes.

    I am as big a Patriots fan as anyone else here but Peyton Manning is still a great QB. One bad game does not really change much he is definitly not a product of the Colts system. He is the system there.

    You know whenever I think of the AFCCG it pisses me off.

    We were THIS close to leaving Manning with a legacy of never winning the big one. Can you imagine the sourpuss he would have on his face this year if they had lost the AFCCG. Ohh it would be priceless.

    Indeed, if Brady had Manning's receiver corps that he had on Sunday night against the Colts in last year's AFC Championship Game, the Patriots win hands down. And if he has that corps all year, Reggie Wayne puts up all-pro numbers, regardless of whether its Aaron Moorehead, Craphonso Thorpe, or Kelvin Kight standing opposite him.

    Cowherd does say a lot of stupid crap, he loves sensationalism.

    Man, I'm not taking anything away from Tom Brady, but Colin Cowherd is the biggest IDIOT on radio. Very seldom does anything he says make any sense to anyone but him and his imaginary friends.

    Nice to hear but I take it with a grain of salt. I stopped listening to Cowherd after he loudly guaranteed the Moss trade was going to blow up in the Pats face. Has he ever admitted he was wrong on that one?

    In the end I think I would like it better if Cowherd stays off of our bandwagon

    Didn't want to start a new thread, so will put it in here. Just heard Cris Carter on HBO's Inside The NFL, predict the Steelers will beat the Patriots in the playoffs. I guess he's entitled to his opinion.

    What is the obsession of some Pats fans to see Tom as the best ever? It's too soon to debate about that.... Wait when he will retire...

    Are you kidding? Brady v. Manning is an obsession with everyone at least for the last few years.

    If the officials simply called a straight game, it would have been a completely different outcome.

    I hate Cowherd, all he did last year was rip the Pats. He doesn't even have real opinions, he just likes to say something that no one else is saying to create some hype for his crappy show. Honestly, one of the worst radio shows around.

    Look at it this way. Yes, the Patriots would've gone on to the Super Bowl and probably won it. But then they may not have gone this offseason and built the megapower offense that we're seeing now. That loss may have been a precursor to the most dominant and meaningful year of the Patriots dynasty era.
