    College is alot different. There isn't an even playing level. Sometimes a school in a weak division will get a stud quarterback that can rack up stats against weak opponents, when he obviously wouldn't be able to do that in a big 10 or big 12 like conference.

    NFL is an even level playing field. I agree that stats don't paint the entire picture, but Manning's are so far ahead of Montana's that I think it's apparent that he's at another level.
    No. These days the NFC is the equivalent of the Missouri Valley Conference, while the AFC is the equivalent of the SEC and Big 12 rolled into one.

    Back when Montana played, it was the other way around.

    Why do the things that we treasure most, slip away in time
    Till to the music we grow deaf, to God's beauty blind
    Why do the things that connect us slowly pull us apart?
    Till we fall away in our own darkness, a stranger to our own hearts
    And life itself, rushing over me
    Life itself, the wind in black elms,
    Life itself in your heart and in your eyes, I can't make it without you

    True, and that only helps any pro Manning debate.

    NFC and AFC atleast play each other during the reg season. Certain college teams might not play any "real" team all year.

    But they only play four teams, and it may be that the opponents are, collectively, a weak division. Not that the God-awful NFC North of the past five years comes to mind, but well, it does...

    The NFL can't have a round-robin schedule, its impossible.

    So there will always be room for debate due to strength of schedule. One of the few advantages the NBA has over the NFL these days... Everybody plays everyone in their conference 3 times, division 4 times (and a few non-division conference teams get four matchups) and the other conference twice.

    Too many teams to go back to the "play every time 4x system" that existed prior to the energy crisis in the late 70s.

    I'm not sure what surprises me more :
    That I would have to actually to defend Montana in a debate, or that I am being forced to actually argue against Manning for a change , or that I am doing it in the Pacers forum

    Why Not Us ?
