I guess this puts to rest once and for all who is better between Brady and Manning.

Eli: 2-0 against Brady in Super Bowls; 2-1 over Peyton on Super Bowl rings.

I was in the airport in Denver during the first half of the game and there were a lot of depressed people, even though most were not from Denver. Flew home during the second half and didn't hear what happened until my wife texted me when I landed.

Thank you Peyton, thank you Norv and, most especially, thank you Phillip for a great start to the week.

Not a big Peyton fan but have to admit he is great and he is BACK !!

Actually the play of the Denver defense in the second half had as much to do with the win as Peyton. 2 TD's from pass interceptions, 3 fumbles caused and recovered. Dumerville and Miller were awesome.

So, who got the NFL Bumbling Nincompoop of the Week award? Rivers? Vick? Luck?

Do you mean now as in the present or who has had the better career and whatnot? Because with Brady having three superbowl win in which he was instrumental and made gigantic clutch plays in all three I would think he would tip the scales his way. And he really should have more, no one has had better and worse luck in the same career in regards to Superbowls. C'mon Wes drops that ball....Tyree's catch

Now that it's been named the Michael Vick Bumbling Nincompoop of the Week Award, it can go to someone else. This week it's Rivers.
