How many seasons did Manning get to throw to Marvin Harrison and Reggie Wayne? It’s like you said, you have to factor in the other 52 players. What about weather? Isn’t playing almost half of your career games indoors a factor? How many times has Brady had the support of a defense as good as the ’15 Broncos? This is why I’m not too into the Brady vs. Manning debate. Anytime it starts up, you’re just diving down a rabbit hole. It’s almost impossible to argue one over the other without using loaded questions and numbers to prove your point. That being said, it’s worth pointing out that Manning led the greatest statistical offense of all time into a Super Bowl and got whipped 43–8. Brady played pretty much the exact same team a year later and hoisted the Lombardi Trophy. See what I mean? At the end of the day they’re both automatic HOF inductees, and one will finish with at least twice as many rings as the other. But six championships between the two of ‘em so far, with possibly more to follow. Let’s just enjoy the fact that we were lucky enough to watch both of ‘em play and leave it at that.
