“Tom Brady is the best by far. It’s not even close. Drew Brees has got to be right there. Tony Romo’s a good player. I’ll take Philip Rivers there. And Peyton, he’s right there. No order except for Tom being the best. He does things that other guys can’t do. His pocket presence is better than those guys by far. He throws a better ball than just about all those guys. He’s a winner – better than all those guys.”
Thanks for digging that up Rev. The interesting part about that is the date when this happened, June 2010. I wouldn't argue Tom or Drew on that list, and Rodgers credentials seem to put alot of emphasis on altheticism and ARM strength. Obviously Peyton's greatest attribute is his brain, but that could also aid in a longer career! Father time catches up with everyone and diminishes physical skills, but Manning just continues to display his vast wealth of knowledge.
