You can attribute that to "giving up" on the Colts part. Sure they weren't going to have a winning record, but they played in a lot of close games that could have went the other way but "oops" we just happened to lose so we could get a good draft pick lol.

Cassel took over a team that went 16-0 and maybe would have went 16-0 again if Brady were healthy. His stats were also NOWHERE near as good as Bradys (something like 23 TD, 3600 yards)...Belichick just got the best he could out of him and they had an easy schedule (NFC west.)

Manning is an all time great that always just comes up a little short at the end of the year and got his one SB against Rex Grossman. He had a chance to show he was more and "Porter returns it all the way!"

Peyton isn't even the best Manning even when Eli loses this SB. The way Brady looked against the Ravens? That's Peyton EVERY playoff game minus the second half in the AFC title game in 06.

The argument for Peyton was always "look at this stats!" Well Brady actually has better stats than him the past few years, and has the hardware as well. Sure quarterbacks alone don't win hardware, but let's not pretend Brady didn't do his part to win those. In SB 38, he was single handedly the best player on the field, throwing for 350 yards and 3 TDs (Delhomme was also good too in the second half)...the defense had nothing to do with it.

Peyton is a guy in the early mid 2000s that was good for fantasy football stats only to not show up in the playoffs.

To me the GOAT is Montana. He never threw for 4,000 yards, but you just knew he was going to win the game. And while his teams were loaded, it's not like his defense was the 85 bears.

Manning is universally known as a choke artist. In fact, he's almost become irrevelant to most sports fans outside of Indy. He's an all time great who had a great career but even if he comes back will never even sniff a SB again on any team.

Not to mention his pick 6 against the Saints. But we all know Reggie ran the wrong route lmao.

Fact is, football is a team game, but in the clutch I'd even take Eli before Peyton and that's all that matters. If Peyton were QBing this game for the Giants even in full health I wouldn't be nearly as afraid.

Btw also if you look at "regular season stats" as Colts love to, Brady has now thrown for 300 TD and 115 INT compared to Peyton's 399 TD and 199 INT. Much better TD/INT ratio than him, and not to mention Peyton started full time in 98 while Brady started full time in 01. Brady would be right around 400 TD with 3 more years, with less INT, and not in a dome.

Thankyou for the necrothread...Couldn't be any lamer....Also you obviously never saw the 49ers defense play. Ronnie Lott would have alot to say against that.

Brady won one of his three against Jake Delhomme..You don't see complaining about that.
