I would say the Manning brothers in general have been by far the biggest thorn in the Patriots side than anything. Peyton has taken them out in the AFC Championship 3 times I believe, and Eli has beat them twice in the Superbowl.
That's 5 potential championships lost at the hands of the Manning's which is still insane being that the Patriots have still won so many championships.
He is an interesting talent. He looks good on tape, but 276 pounds in the NFL. Has there been a DT tackle who has excelled in the league at that weight? Kind of a boom or bust product. They compared to Donald, but I am not sure if I would pull the trigger on him
Agreed. However, when the Broncos had Miller and Ware and went to the super bowl. It was their interior pressure made them unbelievable. Fly around the end and Brady stepped up in the pocket and DTs were there with a great push. I would rather have a great interior lineman then a around the corner D end. Qbs r getting rid of the ball so quickly.
