Especially if you look at the contract and see what he got up front. Let's see if Manning really plays year 4 & 5 at those salaries... - Tom Brady has won the MVP 2 of the last 3 years he's been healthy. - Tom Brady just won the MVP, the first unanimous winner ever. - Peyton Manning is coming off his worst season (passer rating, INTs, yd/att) since 2002. - Peyton Manning had his second neck surgery and won't start camp on time. Yet the media wants us to expect that Manning took a huge discount. No, Tom Brady - the best player in the league and MVP - set the market. The bottom line is Manning got what he's worth - money comparable to Brady, yet wants to portray himself as a saint and a team player in the media. Brady made no such proclamations when he took a nearly identical deal, coming off a deal that over the last 6 years was worth 2/3rds what Manning was.
