I wasn’t leaning on it so much as using it to support my claim that QBs don’t win games. Which I think it makes pretty strongly.
Also, to show how narrative can distort facts; those 9 games put Brady up on Manning 3 championships to none; after those games it was decided that Brady was a winner and Manning a choke-artist, but Brady received 2 TDs more help from his team than Manning. It’s a ridiculous comparison to make yet people make it because it’s easier to think about 1 guy than 53.
“Fair or not, people are always going to think of the games where Manning was an enormous betting favorite in the playoffs, yet lost”
My point: it’s not fair. It’s not correct.
