    Good article. Surprising that Brady's stellar QB rating w/PA has not been discussed more.

    Funny how they start the article talking about both QBs (essentially as equals) but Manning's rating pales by comparison when you look at the stat boxes.

    A little OT but not really worth its own thread.

    Reiss said that Brady led Manning in most every category but Manning had the better rating. He did not expand.

    Does anyone know the reason? BTW I have heard enough why the rating system is not a end all statistic. .

    I would love to design a new QB rating system. Its ridiculous to me that there is a cap/max.

    If I came up with something good how would I get paid for it? Once the formula is out there and being used by the media then it doesn't seem like the originator has any control or leverage.

    I seem to remember a couple of years ago; Brady said that Peyton had a better fake than he did and he was studying his tapes to copy some of his moves.
    (not sure if that was sincere or just BB inspired pre-game hype of the opponent but as I recall it I thought it was sincere and not offered up right before a head to head)
