    Why Tom Brady is the Best NFL Quarterback? Yes Better than Peyton Manning!!!

    The much-debated topic has always been who is a better quarterback, Tom Brady or Peyton Manning? Many NFL analysts claim Manning is a statistical magician who puts up amazing numbers whereas Brady is a system quarterback who is the best team manager. The thing is yes, Manning is a statistically better QB but not by that much and when your breakdown all the numbers, Brady ends up on top.
    Career Regular Season Records
    Peyton Manning 131-60 68% Winning Percentage
    Tom Brady 97-29 77% Winning Percentage (Highest Ever for NFL QB since 1966.min 100 starts)
    Playoff Records
    Peyton Manning 7-8 46% 4-0 in 2006
    Tom Brady 14-3 83% (2nd Highest Ever Behind Bart Starr)
    Head to Head
    7-4 Tom Brady

    In fact, Bradyís first start was against the Colts. Yes the struggling 0-2 Pats were playing the 2-0 Colts and Brady let the Pats to a 44-13 romp. Brady has a 95+ QB Rating in the 11 matches whereas Manning has a sup 78 QB Rating.

    Career Stats

    Iíll give this to you Brady does put up better stats except for Bradyís record breaking 50 td season. But you need to take into account several advantages.

    Running Backs
    Over the course of Manningís career he has had the likes of Marshall Faulk, Edgerrin James, and Joseph Addai in his backfield, all pro-bowlers. Meanwhile Manning has had Corey Dillon, Kevin Faulk, and Laurence Maroney. Not a close comparison. Statistical advantage for Manning.

    Receivers
    Before the arrival of Wes Welker and Randy Moss, Brady has always played with scrubs on the field with the likes of Troy Brown and Deion Branch. On the other side, Manning has always had two pro-bowl wide-outs, Marvin Harrison and Reggie Wayne. Statistical advantage for Manning.

    Offensive Line
    For years, Colts have had the best offensive line in the NFL with multiple pro-bowlers a year. Brady has played with an o-line of scrubs who are put together to fit among the system. Statistical advantage for Manning.

    Defense
    You say Brady has had a better defense playing behind him? Well take this, in 2001, New Englandís defense ranked 24th in the NFL. Lowest rated defense to ever win a super bowl. Overall though the Pats have been a little better. Statistical advantage for Brady.

    Coach
    Ok here I will give you the fact that Bill Belichick is a coaching mastermind. Thatís not to say that Tony Dungy wasnít good but Belichick was better. Statistical advantage for Brady.

    Dome Factor
    Peyton Manning plays in a Dome whereas Brady plays in the outdoor frigid weather of Foxboro. We all know the dome is known for offensive shootouts whereas Foxboro is known for snowy battles where the best team wins. Statistical advantage for Manning.

    Overall, Brady is Better
    All in all, people have this belief that Manning is a superior quarterback because of the great stats he puts up. The fact is they are not that much better and not nearly enough to overlook Bradyís overwhelming superiority in the post season, head to head, and within the regular season. I just canít imagine what Bradyís stat line would look like if New England had invested the same millions in the offense that Indy has. Brady has proven he can win championships and put up amazing numbers surrounded by a mediocre offense. When surrounded by an all-star cast Brady has shown he can put up historic single season records all better than Manningís himself. Manning has shown he can continue to put up unfathomable stats year after year. However the fact that he chokes in the playoffs and plays his worst when his team needs him most makes him far less superior than Brady. Fact is anyone who tries to defend Manning is illogical. This should not even be an argument. Bottom line is no quarterback ever in the new NFL era has posted more stunning postseason performances, team accomplishments, and amazing stats than Tom Brady. No way is Manning close and as a result Brady will always be number 1 and Manning number 2. The numbers donít lie and if not just look at how many rings Brady has on his finger compared to Manning. O, not too mention Manning has played three more seasons. In other words, Tom Brady is better, case and point.

    Manning is hands down the best QB in the league.

    It's not even a debate.

    Comparing TEAM wins in the playoffs is not the same thing as comparing individual players. It's not about if the Pats have more SB rings than the Colts.

    Anybody who says that it isn't even close needs a reality check. Both of them are elite quarterbacks, and its easy to see why people would pick either one over the other. I personally prefer Brady, because of his clutch performances and the fact that he plays for my team. However, Manning has had more yardage and touchowns for his career and will finish with more records, which may make him the better quarterback to some people.

    Plus, to be honest, a lot of people choose one or the other because they either like or hate one of the two teams.

    on the WRs, did it ever occur that maybe they were that good BECAUSE of manning (or at least elevated to an even higher level than they were)?

    He is a sissy because he is playing through an injury?
