    Let me start by saying this isn't meant to debate on which QB is truly (or has truly been)better. IMO, that argument can change from week to week, year to year with these two. Bottom line, they're two of the best QBs the NFL has ever seen.

    That being said, I was on youtube the other day watching random videos involving the Patriots. In one of the videos, (can't remember which one) a debate had started up in the comments section about which QB was better. Someone pointed out that had Manning played for the Patriots, he would have 6 rings. Manning "never had the supporting cast Brady did."

    Ummmmmmmmm..................seriously? I'll give you the Pats defense was much tougher in the early 2000s but dude, really? Antowain Smith, Troy Brown, Patten and Wiggins vs. James, Harrison, Wayne and Stokley? Yeeeeaaaah I'm going to have to disagree with that guy.

    Yes, we have had plenty of weapns in our recent history with Randy Moss, Rob Gronkowski, Wes Welker, Aaron Hernadez, Donte Stallworth, and Brandon Lloyd, but you are absolutely correct that Tom Brady excelled with even just a serviceable cast around him.

    I mean this in the positive light (but can see how it could be interpretted as negative), but I don't know if there has been a better example of a teaming doing more with less than the 2001 Patriots.

    Well, if you are going to go there, we have to show this, too. At least Dukakis spent 3 years in the Army and was stationed in Korea.

    Perhaps it's time to boot this thread to the practice squad before the raw sewage that inhabit the Political forum sniff this one out and do what they do best: end the fun.

    I second this. They almost make Jets fans look smart, and I think we all know that's saying alot.

    I think I read a YouTube comment onetime that accused TB of being a selfish prima donna who throws his teammates under the bus whenever the Pats lose, and that he should be more of a leader like Eli. At that point I realized that there was far too much stupidity on YouTube, and that for the sake of my sanity, I should stop reading the comments on there:).

    I personally think the "Patriots went 11-5 after Brady went down and the Colts were the worst team in the league!" is one of the worst ones.

    Also, Peyton Manning has had a top 10 defense five times...

    #1 (2007)
    #2 (2005)
    #7 (2002)
    #8 (2009)
    #10 (2008)

    ...and was eliminated in their first playoff game 4/5 of those years, with a combined 0 rings in all 5 chances.

    I'd reply, but I can't top that and would not want to even try.

    Good one - my hat's off to you, sir.

    The funny thing is that there is a 100% chance the NFL pregame newly expanded 8 man idiot talking head panel featuring guest LaDainian Tomlinson drum up this comparison and arguments for Peyton before our week 5 game against the Broncos. :rolleyes:
