Don't get me wrong, I am a big Brees fan, but Manning IMO is in a class by himself.

You mean the current year where Brees still threw for 5,162 yards and 39 TD? Sure Peyton topped that this year but that's still a monster season. So yeah, it's not really a stretch to compare the 2 even just this season.

Brees monster season wasn't just topped by Manning 16 tds extra over 40% more than Brees, two less ints 300 more yards on 9 more attempts. Manning was in a league of his own

Yeah, you're right. Make ignorant statements like you can't compare Brees and Manning, then start taking shots at someone who calls you on that bull****, maybe your parents should take your internet privileges away for awhile.

You can act like a kid of you want but the year Brees had isn't comparable to Manning. Manning threw 40% more TDs 16% less ints and 300 more yards on 9 more attempts. They aren't comparable years

I don't even agree with Speedy's overall point and think this is a whack argument. They are elite QBs and worthy of discussion. It's not like every game from either one has been perfectly consistent all season. Manning had a crap game this magical season against NE. OTOH non-elite Schaub torched the Seattle passing D. Frankly that goes against Speedy's "Seattle is just too good" argument more than haggling over Brees being incomparable to Manning.

The Seahawks had a good record, BUT they also had a fairly weak schedule and honestly many of their wins were by narrow margins. They play dirty and for the most part the refs made some seriously bull ISHT calls in their favor. The story of THIS Superbowl is Payton Manning.
The league wants him to go out on top as it makes a great narrative just like last year with Ray Lewis. The league wants it to happen and honestly Denver is a better rounded team than Seattle.

Denver by 10.

All I said is that the Seahawks held Brees down, it's not inconceivable that they can't do the same to the great Peyton Manning. I never even said Seattle is "just too good". I said they held Brees in check. That's it. Then somebody says I can't compare Brees to Manning? WTF is that?

50 tds isnt the greatest of all time mark now is it? The end result however isnt the end all to one person's performance just as there have been super bowl QBs who play average football

Well we were talking about a season's worth of work not game to game. At the end you can compare anything but the performance gap is a rather large one

I agree with everything in your post except the bolded. That's kind of an odd claim. I don't think anybody has ever accused Seattle of playing dirty.

I think it is pretty clear only part of "we" was focused on the season as a whole.

Keep in mind the title to the thread.
