NFL  > General NFL  > Peyton Manning best ever I don't think so....
December 22, 2013, 05:40 PM
Nfl.com has a voting poll that says Peyton is the best ever because of 51 tds in a season. No doubt he is in the top 3 but is he...mine Joe Montana...some probably will say Brady...some love for Green Bay qbs in the past 10 years. But honestly is he..

It's debatable but I think Peyton needs another SB win at least to be ARGUABLY #1. I still have Joe Montana #1 and Brady has an argument as well with his 2 MVP's and 3 SB wins. So does Unitas going real old school.

Lest we forget Terry Bradshaw and his Multiple Super Bowl wins.....

Who cares?

Not even close unless talking regular season only. One could argue when the Mannings sit down for Christmas dinner he very well may be the third best QB at the table.

I'd love to hear the argument for Archie Manning.

No argument needed statement speaks for itself. I am intrigued that you didn't question Eli, why?

Rings aren't the only thing factored in, if that was the case Terry Bradshaw would be rated higher than Tom Brady then. Tom is much better than Bradshaw. Stats, Reg Season record, MVP's, etc. have to be factored in as well. Is Ben Roethlisberger better than Dan Marino all-time with 2-0 in Rings, HELL NO! Eli isn't better than Peyton either. Use common sense.

MVPs have no Merritt in this argument. Those are popularity contests. Stats when spanning generation isn't fair either because of rule changes etc.....team success both season, post season, and championships are what matters. As for you Ben/Marino or Eli/Peyton comparisons. If I got to win one playoff game and those are my 4 choices I go Ben, Eli, Marino, Peyton, just saying.

Because clearly you're obsessed with rings. And Archie has none.

First off statement was dripping with sarcasm not sure how that flies over your head. That said at no point did I bring up rings or and obsession with rings. You like most Peyton ball washers think because I don't worship the ground he walks on think it must be because of rings. Well in part your right. But reality is, that playoff record speaks for itself. His teams have routinely came up short that carries more wieght than any passing stat, for me sorry.

No. You're trolling.

Blatantly trolling. And I'd also mention, based on the timing of your responses to comments over the last 3+ hours, obsessively trolling. Which must be exhausting considering how many times you must have clicked on this page for less than a dozen replies.

I don't know how you ever come up with "best".

But Peyton is one of the very best I've ever see play the game.

Hate to say it but it's Tom Brady. Lead his team to the most Superbowls in history tied with Elway at five, and has the edge over Elway with three wins. Manning might get there but that's a long ways off if he does.

Nah It's still Montana, 4-0 in SB's with no INT's in any SB game but he also has won 2 MVP's like Tom has and has at least decent stats with over 40,000 yards to compare to todays players. Tom had his chance to become the greatest ever in 2007 by going undefeated but the Pats losing to the Giants destroyed it, losing to Eli twice in the big game just doesn't qualify fir #1 in my book. Tom played a mediocre game in that 2007 SB eventhough he did put them ahead late so I don't completely blame him but the Pats only scored 14 and lost. Peyton blew it as well vs the Saints with his Pick 6, so Montana stands alone IMO.

I didn't get the sarcasm. Seemed like he was making a statement of what he/she thought was fact.
