    What this playoff run means to Manning's legacy?

    We all know the story of Peyton Manning's postseason endeavors. There are basically 3 ways to go about it. You can blame the team and say Manning has been victimized. You can say that Manning has let the team down. Or you could say it's a combo of the 2.

    I fall under the combo part, but I lean strongly towards Manning has choked camp. Let's not forget this man had maybe the all time worst super bowl run win 2006. It's not as if he got over the hump to finally win the big one. He was basically pushed over the top by his defense/team.

    I'm not gonna say that Eli is better than Peyton, but his run in the playoffs have been better. Right now Aaron Rodgers is a better QB than Peyton ever was. And that's almost entirely founded upon getting it done in the playoffs.

    Despite the fact that he is about to win his 5th MVP when he was yet again outplayed by another QB it's the playoffs where legacy is solidified.

    It was a great story for Manning to come back and play dominantly. He just MUST beat the Ravens. He can't go 1 and done. And then once/if he gets past them Brady will be waiting for him in the AFC Championship.

    If Manning were to win a 2nd ring and finally win one through an actual dominant postseason run I'd consider putting him in the Brady, Montana, Unitas tier. That's a tall order to ask, but he's dug himself in that hole with basically going 14 years without a dominant postseason run.

    So what do you think? How critical is this run for Manning?

Similar situation happening with Kevin Love, the team has to surround him with foreigners and whites because black players won't succumb to the greatness that is Kevin Love.

    Yeah, but lets be real if you have 5 MVP's and then you have yet to assemble a single dominant run in the playoffs in 14 years. That's a problem.

    As far as im concerned his legacy was already maxed out. This was a good team with Tim Teebow at QB so barring any questions about his health this shouldnt have surprised anyone too much

    No, the fact that you put so much emphasis on the Postseason and ignore the regular season. Once again, Regular season numbers with some Postseason sprinkled in > magnifying Postseason numbers + ignoring regular season.

    It means everything. Peyton Manning can go down as the greatest regular season QB ever. Oooooorrrrrrr he can actually step up in the postseason and win another superbowl. You can only blame the Colts organization (the OL/WR/RB) so many times.

    Also, you name Unitas as part of the "top tier", but he has won the same amount of Super Bowl's as Peyton and didn't have a dominating Postseason run, but Peyton isn't considered "top tier" and had two better Postseason runs. How do you separate them?

    2003 doesn't cut it. 4 INT's in 3 games is too much. And Yeah 2009 was decent, but he lost the super bowl. Dominant super bowl run is 2010 Aaron Rodgers. Put up the stats and win the trophy.

    This is probably going to have no bearing on Manning's legacy whatsoever, but it'll give some ammo to the Brady vs Manning argument I guess.
