Brady doesn't put up the prolific numbers, but he doesn't have the offensive weapons that Manning does, either. Until this year he had an average running game, at best, and a handful of good-not-great receivers. Manning has a HOF wide receiver and an All-Pro running back, two receiving TEs and two very good complimentary receivers.
Until Manning wins a big game outdoors, he'll continue to have his "greatness" questioned. He looked lost on Sunday. He looked defeated, confused and dejected in the first quarter.
For now, Manning QBs fantasy championship teams...Brady QBs Super Bowl championship teams.
For the record, I'm not a Patriots or a Colts fan. I like watching both Manning and Brady -- and I do want to see Manning get over the hump and win the big one. Overrated or not, Brady was a QB for 2 SBs, came out with 2 wins, and two SB MVP awards.
