Give me two teams with equal offensive talent and I’d take Brady over Manning any day of the week.
There was a time when the narrative was that Brady was going to become the greatest of all time, but then “The Golden Boy” lost two Super Bowls to Eli Manning and the New York Giants by a combined seven points and we stopped talking about Brady’s legacy. Montana has separated himself so much that it’s not really even a discussion at this point. Going undefeated in the Super Bowl with zero turnovers in those games ends the discussion the way Michael Jordan never losing in the NBA Finals along with six Finals MVPs separated MJ.
Peyton has a chance Feb. 2 to make us consider his greatness if he can defeat the Seattle Seahawks, Richard Sherman and the No. 1 defense in the NFL. Sherman v. Manning will be one of the delicious storylines on Super Sunday. Losing this game won’t mean Manning isn’t great, but it will be another chapter in his career resume. Peyton Manning isn’t Joe Montana, but that doesn’t mean he’s not one of the 10 greatest quarterbacks of all time.
We are all waiting to see if his greatness can give the city of Denver its first Super Bowl victory since 1999.
