At least for now, Tony Romo is the most maligned QB in the NFL. Peyton at least has 9 playoff wins + a SB. Romo OTOH has only ONE playoff win, and 6 losses in win-or-go-home games.

Peyton has had quite a career, overall, despite a few bumps in the road.

Aaron Rodgers is the greatest quarterback of all time. Rodgers>Brady. 103.6 rating in the playoffs!!! Brady can't hold Rodgers jock. Rodgers will end his career with 4 superbowls and Brady is stuck at 3.

The End.

I agree with absolutely everything you said except this.

I think a lot of `legendary` football players get treated one way and then another once they retire. Manning has a lot of sycophants in the media, and they can keep his name alive with some people for now, but at the end of the day, when the curtain call comes, I can think of no player, ever, that wasn't remembered rightly for exactly what he was.

I remember when Marino retired, everyone saying "he'll be remembered up there with Montana and Elway, even though he never won the big one."

Truth is, he isn't.

Being the "greatest regular season quarterback of all time" sounds like a really great achievement, but when you consider his divisions, and his post-season play, it starts to sound more insulting than complimentary.

The Colts were guaranteed a post-season spot just about every season. All they had to do was beat up expansion teams.

Regular season stats are just a notch in the feather of great post season quarterbacks, NOT the other way around.

Of course part of Peyton's persona is that he also is a good guy (which is why he has all those endorsements) - please walk me through how many other HOF QBs who had just experienced one of the most devastating losses of their career would do this?

Inside the empty locker room Peyton Manning hugged Ray Lewis.

This was long after the great double-overtime playoff game had finished Saturday evening, after Lewis had left the field and the near-zero temperatures, victorious. This was also after Lewis had wept at his locker, eye black rolling down his face. And this was even after he showered, dressed slowly in a suit, did a news conference and a television interview that went longer than promised.

Manning undoubtedly wanted to go home, yet the Denver Broncos quarterback waited somberly inside a deserted Baltimore Ravens locker room. Beside him was his wife Ashley and their nearly 2-year-old son Marshall. Saturday's defeat had to be one of the most agonizing of Manning's career – a 38-35 loss in a game he was 38 seconds from winning – and still the Mannings stood in front of the empty locker of Ravens nose tackle Terrence Cody for a long, long time Saturday evening.

They did this because it was Ray Lewis.

Because in his last days of football, the Ravens linebacker won't walk silently into the night. "I'm so happy for you," Ashley Manning said as Lewis finally walked into the room.

Then Peyton Manning and Lewis talked quietly, their voices mostly muffled but the tone obvious and admiring. If Peyton Manning wasn't going to go to the Super Bowl it was clear he wanted Ray Lewis to be the one who did

Big deal. Which HOF quarterback WOULDN'T wait for a defensive first ballot HOF'er they've played a bunch of times when he was retiring?

And what do these pity stories have to do with where Peyton will place all time?

Because you do not see why that is a big deal is why you do not get why if Brady or Belichick were on fire most fans outside of New England would not piss on them to put out the fire and why the Giants wins over the Pats were so popular

Get me the links when Brady dropped by the locker room to congratulate Peyton in 2006, Eli in 2007 or Eli in 2011

Thanks for confirming the arrogance associated with the Patriots and their fan base

Not to mention the entire motivation behind starting this thread was to engage in schadenfreude and to ease the inferiority complex Patriots fans have ALWAYS had when it came to Manning. If the guy truly sucked as much as they like to claim and if they had any doubts as to who the better QB is, they wouldn't be on opposing team's message boards continually trying to hammer the "See guys! Doncha think Brady's better? Doncha? Doncha?" message across.

I hope the Ravens dickstomp the Patriots next Sunday and then I hope they lose to the Falcons in the Super Bowl.
