    Why Does Peyton Manning Get the Tebow Treatment Every Year?

    I know every Bronco/Colt fan will not pay any attention to what I am about to say, but thats fine.

    Why does Peyton Manning consistently receive more credit for doing exactly what other QBs do?

    I am speaking of :

    • Audibles at the line of scrimmage
    • Being a good student of the game


    and his on-field play :

    • Brady has done everything Peyton has… and more
    • His lack of postseason success
    • Rodgers, Brees have just as many rings


    I am NOT saying Peyton is overrated because he is one of the best QBs of all-time. I am just curious as to why the media (ESPN and so forth) continue to praise him for doing things that plenty of QBs do.

    Brady, Rodgers and Brees audible just as much as Manning does but no one seems to notice.

    Rodgers, Brees, Brady, Ben, Eli, Ryan are all studying game film religiously and receive zero credit.

    I feel like if Manning has a good season (in today's case, great season) he will ALWAYS be the front-runner for MVP even if he is outperformed (look up his last MVP and tell me who really deserved it).

    The neck surgery recovery is incredible and it is an amazing story but it isn't the reason he is receiving as much praise as he is getting. He was praised and worshipped every single year before that.

    Honestly. I have my own feelings about the guy, which I'm sure you can pick up by my user name.

    To answer your questions,

    The truth is he's the golden boy. He is the perfect face of the NFL. The NFL loves players like Peyton and sulk in it. He's more than a QB. He abides by the rules, student of the game, coaches pet, book worm, gym rat, work ethic like no other, well respected human being amongst his peers (including owners, coaches, teammates, opposition teammates, corporate level etc.), he has the blood line in the NFL, he handles the media excellent, he says all the right things, he's been fortunate enough to not have HC’s or other payers with their own storylines. The list goes on.

    The NFL of course jumps on the "poster boy" image. It sells the brand.

    Remember, Peyton didn’t ask for this.

    More direct, look at his WR corps in the beginning of the year. Look how sloppy it was. Just watch the first 3 games of the year. Look at them now. It's remarkable how much he works with these guys. It's a well-oiled machine, fluid. He increases everyone's play around him. Hence, making a winning team. Hence, the NFL loves winning.

    This is the type of stuff the OP im sure is also referring to. If Manning struggles against elite teams it's because he was rusty.

    Not by chance that having to go against three of the best teams had to be a big reason for his struggles. Going against lesser competition cures alot of things in case you don't know.

    Yeah, Peyton and his 115+ QB rating lost the Pats game, couldn't have been McGehee's absurdly badly timed fumble and agregious drop on 4th and 1! And Peyton sure did suck against that Steelers D didn't he?

    Jesus. Every QB has off games. And if the Bears win against the colts week 1 doesn't count cause 'rookie first game' I think Peyton can play the 'first couple of games back from 4 neck surgeries on a new team for the first time ever.' Card.

    And then. He made them pancakes.

    Outside of the pink ugly sweaty forehead of his.

    BTW wouldn't "golden boy" Brady with his 3 titles be more the face of the NFL? You know 6th round draft pick makes good.

    He does good TV appearances. That's key.

    Everything you said is all good stuff. This could also be used to describe Brady, Rodgers, and Brees as well, IMO.

    Missing the point. Neither Peyton nor Brady has ever claimed publicly to be better than the other or even acknowledged the rivalry in any kind of meaningful way. There's no bitterness between them like Russell and Chamberlain and there's no bragging rights between best friends pushing them like Bird and Magic. To be honest it seems like the only people who don't care about the rivalry are Peyton and Brady. If Peyton really cared about it he would have signed with the Jets or Dolphins to play Brady twice a year or the 49ers to give him the best chance to beat them.
    We're better than you
    And we know it

    Hahahha yet another bull job.

    Wilt and Russell were friends until shortly after the 1969 Finals often having dinner at each others houses the day before, or day of the game. You can read all about it in Bill's book, and Wilt's personal life wiki even covers it to some extent.

    Brady came out and said last year that Manning was the GOAT. Another example of his graciousness and another example of your how should I say it? Flubbing it up.

    He receives just credit as do other good QBs. It is not excessive given his status as one of the leagues top 3 QBs for over a decade.

    Those other you speak of are credited as well. I expect the problem is more with your hearing and believing you hear his name "significantly" more than others. You are trying to find fault with recognition of his status as one of the best than lack of coverage of the other great and good QBs in the league. The best guys will always get treated differently. That is just the way of the world.

    BTW, today is Thursday and he is the QB of one of the teams playing in the Thursday night game. Most media outlets today will provide plenty of coverage in preparation for that.

    I agree with this assessment as well. Well said.
