    Look at it this way though...

    For every post season game (or any other game for that matter) there's one winner and one loser. So for each post-season, the aggregate won-loss record for all the teams involved is exactly .500. So for a team that goes to a lot of post-seasons (like Indy) you'd expect that their won-loss record would be around .500 (within some margin of error). And so, Manning's record is just about where you'd expect it to be (at 7-7)

    The flip side to that reasoning of course is that it shows how remarkable Brady's 13-2 record is.

    Playoff records:

    Brady: 13 - 2, three Super Bowls, won at least one playoff game each year he appeared in the playoffs

    Manning: 7 - 7, one Super Bowl, five one and done performances in the playoffs

    Last year was really the exception to the rule for Manning. Without last year's postseason, he's 3-7 in every other postseason. Its really hard to have a record under .500 for the postseason considering you can't lose more than once in any given season, but have the opportunity to win as many as 4in any given season.

    I don't need stats to tell me who's better, I can look at these guys on the sidelines and tell who is FAR superior. Manning couldn't inspire a gnat to pile of dog****. Last year's AFC title game was a fluke, the exception to the rule. Brady will always be above Manning, and in a few weeks all the debates end.
