And Brady beat both Kearse and Peppers I believe.
I mean, just a coincidence, but Brady had Richard Seymour, Teddy Bruschi and a generally good supporting cast. Manning had Dwight Freeney and a D that stepped up quite a bit during the playoffs. The NFL's number one offense? Lost to the Bears.
Look at premier DEs.
Most have gone to the Super Bowl.
