Logic can sometimes fall by the wayside when debating Tebow around here. I get it because I see how easy it is to be a fan of the guy.
I'd love to see the ring count if Manning had landed on the Pats and Brady on the Colts. I'm not saying there's no chance Brady does better. I just don't think it ends up where its at now. Manning's team relied on him more than any other team relied on their QB. The Pats made the playoffs (I have this right, don't I?) with Matt Cassel. So many of you are comparing apples to oranges in the hopes of bolstering the side you're 100% emotionally invested in. Best example is the one-and-dones. Think those Colts teams are going further with another QB? Who? Think they're making the playoffs every year? I'm not saying Manning is the best ever, but the lack of objectivity shown by many here about his ability and his career is startling.
Also, I agree with the point made about Manning advancing in the playoffs just as far as Tebow did. Don't think thats a technicality.
