    Default Ex-Pat Thinks Manning is the Better QB

    Aquib Talib says Peyton Manning is better than Tom Brady just like we all knew.

    He may be biased, but it's still cool to hear an Ex-Pat confirm what we all thought.

    I'm not convinced of that anymore after the dud Manning laid in the SB
    Don't ask Marvin Harrison what he did during the bye week. "Batman never told where the Bat Cave is," he explained.

    ^^ That's an insult to DUDS of the world.

    And WTF is he supposed to say now ?? If he went from Denver to NE, his story would be reversed.

    I'll always be thankful for what Peyton did for the Colts, Indy, and the fans. I also don't care anymore now that he no longer plays for my team.

    No QB would have done better the way that line was collapsing.

    I still watch him on occasion just because I will always think about him as a Colt and he is a fun QB to watch. The SB was pretty pathetic, but many other top ranked QB's have laid DUDS in their careers also just not always on such a big stage. I always thought Manning had a better sense of his pocket than Brady. Yeah their both great QB's, but IMO Manning is a little better.

    Wouldn't a more relevant title be "Current Bronco thinks that Manning is better"??
    The poster "pacertom" since this forum began (and before!). I changed my name here to "Slick Pinkham" in honor of the imaginary player That Bobby "Slick" Leonard picked late in the 1971 ABA draft (true story!)

    True. Be interesting i think to do a poll of all the players who have played with both.

    When the chips are down, I'll take Brady every time. Manning in the regular season, Brady in playoffs.

    You know I was like this when Manning had his first couple of years with the Colts. I didn't think he could handle playoff pressure and, well, he couldn't. However, I think he is much better with the pressure now. Changing from guys you've played with for so long is difficult and that's why I'll give Manning a pass on this past SB, but I expect better from the Broncos next time win or lose in the playoffs he should be more comfortable with his guys and his guys should be more comfortable with him by then.

    I was just getting ready to say I care more how Luck compares to Brady... or Manning... now.

    Compares??? He's still got a LONG way to go to even begin to compare.

    What exactly has Brady done so great in the postseason?

    Win SB's and not look like a deer in the headlights. He still kills the Colts with WAY less talent on his team than he used to have.

    This can't be a serious question.

    Of course you can compare. Doesn't mean they have to be equals.... Doesn't even mean he's not a distant 3rd... or 4th... or 12th... or whatever.
    Comparing them doesn't mean they have to be comparable. And you can surely make distinctions about where Luck is compared them at the same or similar points in their careers.

    Not recently he lost his last 2 SB's ironically enough to the team with the other Manning brother. I mean if you think Brady is better fine but really at this point he's living on past postseason reputation which is conveniently forgotten.

    As for what Talib said? No big deal I admit I chuckled but like a lot of players they love the one they're with or maybe he finds Manning harder to prepare for since he's played against both of them before.

    Just appreciate both of them. It's going to be a long long time before we have another two quarterbacks whose careers are so connected. They are both legends, and it's always been hard to talk about one without inevitably bringing up the other.

    It is interesting how they are a combined 0-4 in their last four Super Bowl appearances.

    He didn't have to pick one or the other.

    Amazing when Brady won his Superbowl's his defense did most of the work. And, if not for a bogus tuck rule and the Panthers completing an illegal procedure on a kickoff with about :46 left in the game, Brady could/should be two Superbowl's less.

    Manning hasn't looked bad at all in the post-season lately. He has won one and been to two others. Anyone attributing the Superbowl to him is a moron and should instantly be ignored. He basically started down 0-9 against one of the best defenses in the last 10 years, if not ever. Yeah, totally his fault.

    And I'm in no way a Colts fan(Detroit Lions fan here) so, I have no dog in this race.

    It goes to show that the SB is all about the TEAM.

    And yet he hasn't won a ring in over a decade. Brady has been less than ordinary in the postseason recently. Dude is living off of things that happened a long long time ago
