Manning has consistently had better offensive players, but Brady has had better defenses early in his career.
That's the way I took the stat/comment. Manning has never been without two or three or more pro-bowl caliber guys to throw to going back to his rookie year.

Joe Montana won his first ring throwing to the likes of Freddie Solomon, Dwight Clark, Charlie Young, and Earl Cooper (Go Owls!!). With the exception of Clark (they replay "The Catch" to death), do you remember any of those guys?
