    I agree with them. Peyton is a playoff choker while Brady is a clutch playoff winner.

    I'd take Brady. Hard to argue with the done more with less comment.

    Manning's TEAMS haven't had the best of luck in the post-season. I wouldn't put all of that on his shoulders, especially when a kicker misses a very makable game winning kick.

    Regardless, I'd probably take Brady too (for post-season results). But it is splitting hairs. Both of them are HOFer's and Manning has more MVP's and a Super Bowl ring to Brady's 2 MVPs and 3 Super Bowl rings. Eli has 2 rings and I don't think anyone would take him over his older brother.

    And Brady (who grew up idolizing him in N. CA) is a taller clone. This is why I take Brady. It's the intangibles. Both are smart and read defenses as well as anyone ever, both accurate, both good arms. But there is a smoothness to Brady's game that, to me, sets him apart.

    That's funny because I would put intangibles and smoothness on Montana's side..what I will give Brady is he didn't have the talent that Montana...but Montana was basically a one-man team in k.c.

    I try to avoid comparing players from different eras. Joe Montana and a few others are in the mix for best of their era. Manning and Brady are in the mix for best of their era. More QBs today seem to lean towards Montana as their idol. Today's football players seem to be split down the middle as to which is harder to play against as an opponent, with opinions highly dependent upon whether the player himself was in the playoffs.

    The Super bowl rings and MVPs are an easy discriminator, so I give Brady the edge based on that alone.

    all good points. as far as era goes, montana's peers included john elway, marino, randall cunningham, steve young after he went to k.c., warren moon, Troy Aikman, and jim kelly...all stellar qb's in their own right.

    I was comparing Brady to Manning in this respect not Montana. IMO, he is a taller clone of Montana. Watch the drop, play action fakes (much smoothr and less demonstrative than Manning) and release, uncannily similar to Montana IMO.

    Over the years I probably give Brady the edge over Manning but not that much.... within last two years I would choose Manning over Brady. Brady is 3-2 in Super Bowls and last time he won was nine years ago. Also Brady had better defenses than Manning had in his Colts era. In the regular seasons Manning was over Brady while Brady was over Manning in the playoffs. Both guys will be Hall of Fame quarterbacks.

    Let's see who wins this Sunday (I think)... so say if Manning wins AFC and SB this time, I would vote Manning over Brady as the better career quarterback even if Brady has one more SB win (total) because of Manning's numerous NFL records and such. He's just amazing!

    If Montana was included in this thread discussion, I would definitely vote him over both guys. IMO

    Until I see otherwise, Peyton still gets a case of the yips in big games. Brady gets stronger, IMO.

    Peyton is a better passer, Brady is a better QB.

    The better QB gets the rings.

    Having Adam Vinatieri booming 50 yard timely field goals has never hurt Brady in winning those playoff games and superbowls either....

    I agree Manning's teams haven't always done the best, but it's not just the losses it's how Peyton has played in many them (poorly) with interceptions at key moments (like last year's first round loss). If he lost games playing well I wouldn't hold it against him, but often times the offense and Peyton struggles in the losses and that's on Peyton himself. Even in his SB win he played poorly and was just fortunate he ran into Rex Grossman. On the flip side, even in both of his SB losses Brady marched down the field and had clutch TDs...stepped up as usual where as Peyton probably would have thrown a pick...unfortunately Eli had his own last second TD drives right after that.

    I do think Peyton is one of the best ever, but because of his playoff struggles I have him just outside the top 5 QBs of all time.

    Brady is a scoundrel that will cheat like the rest of his team at a drop of your hat. Manning is a transparent up-front individual that does his magic the hard way. I hope Omaha kicks that little wimp's a$$.

    I'm with Manning on this one, main reason... Brady has always had strong defenses and a better coach. Manning has had a chance to prove he is great despite often times having pretty shaky defenses and a few coaches. Brady has had stability which is vastly underrated in pro sports.

    They're both Hall of Famers. You have to be thrilled to have either one as your QB.

    If Brady and the Pats win this one, the debate will be put to rest IMO. Brady does more with less.

    If Manning wins and finishes with a Super Bowl victory, he has at least pulled even, if not ahead.

    And a long list of hall of fame receivers to throw to. I mean, who wouldn't take Deion Branch over Marvin Harrison or one of the other no names over Reggie Wayne?
