Greatest pitch man in NFL history?
It's really not that hard to differentiate Brady v Manning's post-season record.Stitch01 said:

For their careers, both have some amazing stats. But Brady has an absolutely amazing 2.0% Int rate and Peyton has a respectable but not otherworldly 2.6%, and that's somewhat reflected in big games.Stitch01 said:
Stats are really similar to Brady's. Brady's record is better obviously, but i still think Brady has been an all time great since 2005 when his playoff record has been mediocre and the Pats have lost as favorites five times.bankshot1 said:It's really not that hard to differentiate Brady v Manning's post-season record.
Manning's post-season record or stats are not those of a GOAT.
He's just not as good in the post-season.
Pats were favored in the AFC championship game, by 3. Dunno about the next year.MoGator71 said:
Not sure how much stock you put in betting lines, but I'm reasonably certain his teams have been favored in every single one of his playoff games. Not 100% sure about the 2 losses in Foxboro, but I remember them being the favorite in both, and the massive chip on the shoulder of the Pats going into them because of it.
He's had his share of lousy playoff games: Denver '06, San Diego '07 and '08, Baltimore '10, '12, and '13, as well as that Jets game. What he also has is two excellent SB games ('04 and '05), the destruction of an excellent Pitt defense in '05, and the signature drive at the end of the '02 Super Bowl.Kliq said:The difference between playoff Manning and Brady is that Manning has a lot of bad playoff losses. Losses at home to teams that they were favored to beat. With the exception of the Jets game (and maybe SB 43), Brady really does not have a lot of those.

He's definitely been better than Manning in the Super Bowl, but their overall playoff numbers are very similar, outside of wins and losses. Brady gets a slight edge in the head to head for his playoff performance, but it's not a huge edge.

He's awesome. Great. The second best QB ever.Jnai said:Probably 1b (Tied with Brady) for the best football player of his generation. Tonight's game was an abortion, but it's just hard to argue with how good he's been.
