Both QBs are on the short list of best QBs to play the game. It's not a homer pick and it really isn't much of a slight (if it's a slight at all) to Manning either.
Nobody talks about Elway as one if the greatest of all time nor would most outside of the Denver fan base take Elway over Manning in that conversation.

It's a biased answer because he was the greatest QB in the history of the franchise, and as an Elway fan I enjoyed watching him. But he was not on Peyton's level. Not even close.

Interestingly before he won the SBs hebwas also considered a QB who couldn't win the big game.
