    Stupid of him to say that, especially right before the game, but he does have a point; Manning's playoff record is average.

    Motivating Manning isn't wise. He is right though. Manning is the greatest regular season football player in history by miles, but he is a playoff choker. There are quite a few QBs I would take in the playoffs over Manning.

    True but the Irsay family are somewhat scumbags.

    Peyton is the anti-Eli.

    What's Eli? An above average quarterback lucky enough to be on teams that make great defensive runs through the playoffs?

    Eli fought hard and led the Giants

    Peyton has always had neck problems like choking
    against playoff teams.

    Eli throws TDs to his players late in Superbowls
    Peyton throws TDs to the other team late in Superbowls.

    One will go down as a top 5 quarterback of all time and it won't be Eli. He was simply the beneficiary of two teams that turned into stellar defensive units midway through the season. I won't argue that he led timely drives that were also highlighted by spectacular catches.

    While he doesn't have the greatest postseason winning percentage in history Peyton has a Superbowl ring, so the "can't win in the playoffs" label is kinda silly. If he's a "choker" what does that make Dan Marino*?

    *for the record I think everybody, including me, thinks Marino is one of the best 5-10 QBs ever, regardless of his postseason experience.

    Two of the luckiest plays in Super Bowl history as well.

    Not exactly.

    More like the consistency genes went to Peyton, but the clutch genes went to Eli

    Marino--great QB but a playoff choker.

    There was a ton of luck involved in that Tyree catch, but his ability to stay up on the play was spectacular. How he wasn't sacked I don't know. The pass to Manningham was a thing of beauty, not a lot of luck there.

    No, Peyton is not consistent in the postseason. My original post still holds.

    I still believe Manning is one of the top 10 QBs of all time because Manning can single handedly make you into a perennially 13 win contender, but he is not near the top of my list because of his playoff choking. Even the year they won the SB he was unimpressive in every game aside from the AFC championship game.

    Marino is similar to Manning. It's not so much that Manning only has 1 ring or Marino has 0, it's that their level of play drops so much in the playoffs while QBs like Brady, Montana, Brees and Rodgers have such high levels of playoff play.

    Hardly. His playoff record wasn't the problem....having to go up against Joe Montana was the problem. Marino had a great showing in that playoff run...He led an amazing last 2 minute drove win a Seattle in his last playoff win.

    Problem was in his playoff losses his running game averaged 53 yds per game.
