The next Brady Manning Rivalry


Recommended Posts

It will be Kyler Murray vs Russell Wilson, IMO. They are also in the same division. 

 

If you want something across divisions, Lamar vs Mahomes with 2 teams that are going to be winning a lot of games and potentially be division leaders for a while.

The issue with that though is Chiefs own Lamar right now

I admit I still haven't seen Kyler Murray play. But how can a 5'10" 207 lbs dude be a Manning/Brady...

 

Not saying it can't happen, but it's hard to see (over the line)

He's a scrappy little dude but solid QB

Brees isn't big but plays like a giant 

 

Brees is listed as 6 foot which is tiny for a QB of his pedigree. Murray and Flutie are listed at 5'8". That is A LOT shorter than 6'.

 

I know their heights are probably all probably exaggerated, but all things being equal...

Why are they smiling like they're friends? What kind of rivalry is this!? That's the problem with these young QB's nowadays; they're too nice. In order for the next true rivalry to work, we need two hot-headed QB competitors who genuinely hate each other, bonus points if one is a cheater. They can be friends *after* they retire.

That's funny.

I always loved Doug Flutie and thought it was crap no team would give him a real shot as a franchise QB. It's hard not to root for the little guys

The Bills gave him a good shot but unfortunately they wasn't good enough to make it all the way. 

Threw for 58,179 Yds, 369 Tds  ran for 6,759 Yds and 82 Tds. 

That's impressive no matter what pro leagues he played in.

I honestly see Allen vs Mahomes... I don't know if Lamar is going to last. And the Bills are going to start owning that divison. So Bills vs Chiefs seems more like a yearly deal. Steelers are already taking the North this year. 

 

And Kyler vs Wilson? That's way too far a gap to last that long. IMO

Man is the pic for real? Murray looks like a munchkin from the movie Wizard of OZ.

    • I think Frank and the OC knew his strengths and weaknesses and didn't put in too many plays that they knew Rivers would have a hard time executing.  They did let him take a deep(ish) shot sometimes.  I'm not sure they were overly conservative at all.
    • Great sumary, 100% accurate.
    • Rodgers only has himself to blame for not running that ball in on 3rd down. He had a clear lane to the EZ.   The decision to go for it should have been mostly irrelevant because 4th down wouldn’t have happened if he did run. And if he doesn’t get there...it’s going to be 4th and short...which makes the case for going for it even stronger.   Rodgers is a great QB...but he made a critical mistake.
    • You seem bitter after a tough loss.   New Orleans is likely to lose Brees (if not a retirement in the coming weeks, likely after next year).  That leaves Tampa Bay, a team you guys could have very well beaten yesterday (dominated time of possession, won the turnover battle, etc... that TD at the end of the half and a few other plays really changed that game, though if you looked at that stat sheet aside from the score, you'd probably have thought GB won).  The rest of the NFC South isn't too big of a threat in the next couple years.  The NFC East is a dumpster fire.  The NFC North is a division you should win for a few more years if Rodgers is your QB.  The NFC West seems like the toughest overall division in the NFC, but they underperformed this year - the Seahawks seem to be on the decline, I don't think Goff is good enough to get the Rams over the hump on an annual basis, not really sure what to think of the 9ers and the Cardinals have a good young coach and QB.    No reason why Rodgers can't at least get back into the SB in the coming years in GB.  The other top QBs in that conference (Brees and Brady) are on the wrong side of 40.  Wilson, Murray and a couple other QBs seem to be a level below those two and Rodgers.  Matt Ryan's getting old, Dak Prescott's coming off a bad injury, and after those 2 I see a pretty big decline in NFC QBs (especially if Stafford leaves the conference).     The AFC on the other hand had 4 QBs who were 26 or younger in the divisional round.  It looks like the Chiefs and Bills with Mahomes and Allen are going to be very tough for a long time coming.  Herbert looks to be the real deal with the Chargers as does Burrow with Bengals, the Ravens and Titans have ridiculous running games and solid Ds and likely will be threats for years to come.  Really, aside from having a hard time believing a few teams (i.e., NYJ, HOU, DEN) will be any good in the foreseeable future (I'd throw Jax in there, but who knows if they get Trevor).  Otherwise, I can see perennial powerhouse PITT declining as Roethlisberger ages/retires.     Overall, I think Rodgers has a much better shot of getting to the SB if he stayed in Green Bay than if he came to the AFC.  The AFC, at least for the next few years, seems like a much stronger conference than the NFC overall and has multiple up-and-coming QBs, whereas several of the top dogs in the NFC have QBs who will likely be retiring before A-Rod does, and definitely before A-Rod is 'washed up'.
    • Brady's reputation as the best playoff QB in the history of the NFL is pretty much already set in stone.  There are ootner QB who can compete in terms of regular season performance -- Manning, Rodgers, Mahomes-- but in terms of doing what is necessary to get to the playoffs and then perform at a high level once there, the only guy who comes close at the moment is #18 and even Mr Manning is a clear second place finisher.
