    It won't be. It's a popularity contest where fans can gain retribution for all the blow out losses Tom has given them. I bet he doesn't make it past round 1.

    It's almost a certainty it will be Brady vs Manning in the bracket. It will be interesting to see what happens there. Before Manning had this record-breaking year, Brady was ahead in most national polls I saw on ESPN and by NFL scouts/players.

    Though one can also argue that Manning's epic meltdown in the SB hurt his legacy more than the records helped it.

    Most people are slaves to the moment. Media can dictate what most people care about most at any given time (Ukraine anyone?). After the Patriots stomped Peyton in 2012 with the no huddle, Tom > Brady was probably more widespread than it had ever been. Last year it swung back. I think more people just have an axe to grind with the Patriots, so I'm not holding my breath for Tom to go far in the fan vote tournament.

    I don't think I picked a single underdog. Then again, I've never claimed to be very educated about football before the early/mid-2000s (pretty convenient time for a kid in New England to be getting into football).

    Brady and Unitas played in very different eras. It is very hard to compare them but I think we can agree they are the best of their Eras (though Starr was great too)

    My top QBs (of the Super Bowl era) are

    Montana
    Brady
    Staubach
    Unitas

    then maybe

    Starr (hard to say.... was great with a limited sample size though)
    Young
    Elway
    Marino
    Manning

    All competing for the 5th spot.

    HTF can Eli lead Brady in votes?

    My bad, the huge population of NY and NJ cesspools.

    Brady is back ahead of Eli Manning, but Russell Wilson is beating Peyton Manning...

    Give this "contest" the attention it deserves.

    LOL am thinking that to. only Montana, marino Elway and young are lock wins right now, looks like people don't want QB's who are still playing or not yet in the HOF to be named the GOAT

    Brady moved about 30k votes ahead of Eli after being 20k behind, the trolling seems to have stopped.

    ...Peyton, however, is over 100k votes behind Wilson. :D Pretty similar to the score of the last game they played against each other in.


    edit: Oh god, some other results LOL

    Bledsoe > Aikman
    McNabb > Warner

    I'll never understand how people can compare players/athletes from different eras and say this person is the best, or that person, etc. And that goes for all sports.

    Makes no sense!
