Sure Brady's won more superbowls but I think alot of guys are fortunate to be in certain situations. The best way to tell who you'd rather have is to envision them playing for the same team with the same players and coaches surrounding them.
Damn straight I would. I would take Brady over all of them. Manning is a great passer, that's for sure, but he gets scared--I can't think of it being anything else--against good defenses. He didn't know what to do with the ball.
Football is not like baseball, where stats are a much more accurate measure of a player. In football--especially the quarterback position--there are so many unmeasurables that are important to the QBs success.
If I needed a player to throw a football thirty yards through a tire, I'd pick Manning. If I want to win a football game, I pick Brady.
