|The Manning Face|
Honestly, the argument was legit 7-9 years ago. But it has long been over. Brady has lapped him like Lance Armstrong vs that kid on your street riding his Big Wheel.
However, talking heads on ESPN need something to talk about and there's nothing like a good old "He's better than he is" argument.
First: Rings. Tom's got 3 (should be 5) and Manning has 1. That should end the conversation, but it doesn't...people, understandably don't like the Patriots. They win and they beat their favorite teams so they hate the Pats and say it's all about stats, not rings.
Second: Leadership. Tom Brady has done more with less than Manning could ever possibly do. Manning's always had MVP receivers. Brady's turned people into MVPs and HOFers.
Third: The Manning Face. You've seen what it is. You know what it is. Brady doesn't make The Manning Face. Manning does. Manning pouts, Brady wins.
Fourth: Stats. These are the numbers for Brady's last 4 games:
Win vs Shitsburgh - 30 for 43, 350 yards, 3 TDs, 0 interceptions, 117.4 passer ratingAnd Manning Face's numbers:
Win vs Manning - 19 for 25, 186 yards, 2 TDs, 0 interceptions, 123.1 passer rating
Win vs Detroit - 21 for 27, 341 yards, 3 TDs, 0 interceptions, 158.3 passer rating
Win vs Jorts - 21 for 29, 326 yards, 3 TDs, 0 interceptions, 148.9 passer rating
Win vs WKRP - 20 for 36, 185 yards, 0 TDs, 0 interceptions, 69.8 passer ratingBrady has thrown 4 picks this year. Manning has thrown not only 4 in a single game on more than one occasion, but 15 all year. The amount of fail Manning brings to a game on one day is greater than the amount Brady does in an entire season.
Loss vs Brady - 38 for 52, 396 yards, 4 TDs, 3 interceptions, 96.3 passer rating
Loss vs A Whale's Vagina - 31 for 48, 285 yards, 2 TDs, 4 interceptions, 59.8 passer rating
Loss vs God's Team - 36 for 48, 365 yards, 2 TDs, 4 interceptions, 75.4 passer rating
Brady has been playing for 10 years to Manning's 12. Manning's got 196 picks so far to Brady's 103. If you're not good at math, that's 'bout double. Plus, Brady missed a year went he went off to fight in WWII.
Fifth: Wins. Want to argue that one?
Brady has 106 lifetime wins and 24 lifetime losses, he's 14 and 4 in the post season (granted one of those losses was a big one - but Brady marched down and won that game...the defense fucked him), and is currently riding a 25 consecutive home game win streak.
Manning has, with 3 extra years, 137 lifetime wins, is 7-8 in the post-season, and currently riding a 0 consecutive home game win streak.
