Manning and Brady have both had absolute studs at WR too, Harrison, Wayne, and Moss, Welker. Brees has never had a pro bowl WR. Stats don't tell the whole story by a longshot, but Brees was statistically better than both this year.

Couple of points... Manning has outperformed Brady statistically in the playoffs, but somehow one is considered clutch and one you just called below average.

I've also read where the 2006 Colts Playoff offense was the most efficient offense in the playoffs(scoring drives/Drives) than any other offense dating to the late 90's when the information was available.

You mention the pick 6. I put that on a lackluster effort by Reggie Wayne and a great read by the DB,more so than a poor throw. If Wayne would have ran the route right, it's incomplete at the very least.

Belichick is the main reason of New England's success and Indy's D has had some horrible games in the playoffs. Manning has had some bad ones too, but what quarterback hasn't?


That right there is my main problem with Manning. Nothing is ever his fault, he throws a pick 6 and it's the receivers fault? If you look at that play, he never took his eyes off of Wayne, any DB would read that and pick it off EASILY. At some point, people need to realize Manning has had a stellar team for almost his entire career and only has 1 ring, whereas Brady was throwing to no-name receivers and still won 3 SB's.

and while Belichick is a genius, he isn't the one out there engineering 2 minute drills in the final minutes of the 4th quarter to win the game, Brady is. I can't stand Brady, but he is the 2nd best QB of all time next to Joe Montana when it comes to the post-season, and Manning isn't even top 10 in that category.

Not sure about that last part there. I wouldn't put him near the top 2. It's obvious that something underhanded was going on during their run. Notice the downslide since. I'm no Manning fan either for the most part. He's okay but I see flaws in his game. Playing with yearly pro bowlers and only one ring does speak volumes.

I have to go back to Brees. He's not on a loaded team per say and yet still has better stats and just as many rings as Manning. JMO
