    Joe Montana is a golden god. But who knows, Brady might win one or two more and overtake him.

    It makes me feel even worse because the league is fixed. How the hell else would Manning have won Super Bowl MVP?

    It just makes me feel worse because everyone is going to talk about how this validates Manning and his whole career when really the Colts won inspite of him.

    It should make you feel better in the years to come...Manning is still mediocre in the playoffs, unless he's playing a gassed team with 3rd-string LBs in coverage, then he's terrific. The Colts caught a lot of lucky breaks along the way, they were actually a team in decline in 2006 and should be even worse in 2007.

    In the 2006 playoffs Manning had the worst passing performance by a SB winning QB EVER (since the new passing rules). Manning's supporters will argue, "Sure, but he won, and all that matters is winning. Stats are irrelevant." To which I reply, "Exactly. That's what we've been saying all along. Now win 2 more and you'll be in Tom Brady's class."

    It doesn't matter. Passing stats are overrated. You can't bag on Manning for bad stats when he's winning.

    Here's why the passer rating is such a joke: if you hand off to your own player for a TD, that hurts you in the ratings as opposed to passing the ball. I mean, come on! If you can run it in, run it in.

    The fact that Ken O'Brien used to lead the league in passing stats year after year shows what a joke that rating stat is.

    Manning had his best two games ever in the AFCCG and the SB, if you ask me.

    Exactly. Passing stats are meaningless. Winning is all that matters. Which is why those claiming Manning's had a better career than Brady are foolish.

    No, I wouldn't say that at all. I watched every second of the playoffs intently and Manning's stats are the most misleading I've ever seen.

    Kansas City: He threw 3 INTs but went 30 for 38 and moved the ball up and down the field all day. Marvin Harrison ran the wrong route on two of the INTs.

    Baltimore: This game was simply a grudge match and he managed it very well. The second INT came on 3rd and long, so he just threw it up and it wound up being better than a punt.

    New England: I do not, but even if you do think he played badly in some of the other games, what he did in the second half vs. your team, the Patriots, more than, more than, makes up for any other bad thing. Those 32 points were ALL Peyton. They ran in 3 of the touchdowns when they got close, but it was all Peyton. Coming back from 18 down, the 32 second half points, the 80 yard drive with 2 minutes remaining... that was all Peyton. So, you guys definitely got the worst of it.

    Super Bowl: Peyton was excellent, excellent in that rain storm. He played precisely how you have to play in a situation like that.

    Considering the situations, he played some of the best football of his career in the playoffs even though the numbers do not show it.

    Hey, Brady can have the stats, Peyton will take the Lombardi.

    Great. So since you admit stats don't matter and winning the Sb is what counts, you will conceed that all those stats Manning was accumulating for years were of little importance, and Brady, who was winning 3 Sbs, was the better Qb.

    I would also like to point out what an underrated QB Bradshaw has become. People these days like to diminish his accomplishments because of his "career stats", failing to recognize that he played prior to the passing rule changes and in a much more physical era where cheap shots, late hits to the Qb were par for the course. In addition to being among the grittiest, toughest QBs ever, he was also the consummate big game player, and will always have a place in the top 5 Qbs of all time IMO.

    It's funny, I normally think of 2004 as Brady's worst Super Bowl, when statistically it was his best.

    Somebody has got their passer rating calculations all out of whack.

    Ben Roethlisbergers 100+ rating should have been a giveaway!

    According the this website http://www.primecomputing.com/ which calculates passer rating :

    Manning 2006 - 81.8 (which lets be honest, is a more likely score for such a good completion % and 1 TD and 1 INT)

    Roethlisberger 2005 - 22.6 (a slight difference from 101.7 )

    Brady 2004 - 110.2

    Brady 2003 - 100.5

    Brady 2001 - 86.2

    Montana 1989 - 147.6

    Bradshaw 1978 - 119.1
