Never be appreciated? Before the game there was a ton of talk about him being the best QB EVER.
Now his reputation will take a hit with this game (and his past playoff disappointments). Some QBs take their play to the next level when the biggest lights are on (Eli, Big Ben or Brady are prime examples) - some crumble under the pressure (Schaub). Manning belongs in neither group, but he routinely hasn`t had his best games in the biggest games. Itīs not his teams that lose the game despite his good play - it`s on him as much as it is on anybody else.
That doesn`t make him a bad QB. He probably is the best regular season QB of all time. And probably a top 5 overall QB. But he is not the big winner as some of the other QBs out there. Right now I would put Brady ahead of him...
