five reasons why peyton manning is more awesome than tom brady... or a sort of apology

May 23, 2013

photo snagged here.

one. manning was first overall draft pick. brady was chosen at the end of the sixth round.

two. he was selected four times as the national football league's most valuable player, a feat no other has accomplished. brady's only gotten it twice.

three. he played in the pro-bowl twelve times, four more than brady.

four. manning's the fastest to achieve four thousand completions. he has thrown the ball nearly eight thousand times with fifty-one hundred completions. brady's thrown the ball about six thousand times with thirty-eight hundred completions.

so, manning's thrown the ball practically twice as many times as brady's managed to get it in the hands of one of his receivers. and manning's completed almost as many passes as brady has attempted.

five. manning's the fastest to four hundred passing touchdowns, with four hundred thirty-six. brady's at three hundred thirty-four.

to me, he’s the greatest of all time. he’s a friend of mine, and someone that i always watch and admire, because he always wants to improve, he always wants to get better, and he doesn’t settle for anything less than the best. so, when you watch the best and you’re able to learn from the best, hopefully that helps me get better (tom brady on peyton manning as quoted in this article).
