    Funny thing about that until either retires every playoff game can affect the rating.

    I'd hold off celebrating until it's set in stone. Much like with UD, you don't want to declare something only to have it come back and bit you in the @ss

    Re: Condolences to UD6.



     I think we can all agree that we've been lucky to have witnessed two of the all time greats .

    Actually Possibly Three.

    Poor Brees , had he come along 10 years earlier ( or later )  , we'd most likely be including him in the discussion .

     To that regard ...
    all the RODGERS lovers out there need to tap the breaks on the BEST EVER crap until he gets at least another half dozen years under his belt.
     He looked pretty pedestrain down the stretch this year.

    In Response to Condolences to UD6. : Appreciate the consideration, but its unnecessary.  2011 was an unprecedented year in which established offenses were able to shred defenses due to the lockout and as evidenced by the volume of QB's throwing for 5000 yards.  I'd imagine that if Peyton had played he would have been in that crowd.  Alas, he didn't get to play in the outlier year, but its not forgotten.  Nor is the fact that he may be the best QB of all-time.

    UD...  agree with you here and we forgot one thing..  Brady also missed the 2008 season, which based on his 2007 season, could have resulted in even better numbers, career wise given the last couple seasons.  Peyton would have to FAR exceed his normal stats to stay ahead.

    Brees can definitely be included. He's two years younger than Brady, has more passing yards already and only 19 fewer TDs. If he plays close to his current level until he's 38 (six more years), he'd have a chance at catching Favre's TD record (needs 38 TDs/year) and getting fairly close to his yardage record. If he plays as long as Favre, he'll be first in both (assuming good health).

    I would say Favre belongs in the discussion as well, while we're at it.

    Can you imagine what Brady's stats would look like if he got to play most of his career indoors?  

    No weather......faster track for his recievers.  Would his numbers be 10% higher?  15% higher?

    He has them going for wins. The rest follows.

    In Response to Re: Condolences to UD6. : Obviously he doesn't. If he did he wouldn't have had Brady hand the ball off 3 times when they were inside the 10 against the Donkeys and the all time playoff game TD mark was there for the taking.

    Not to mention the record for most career TDs in the postseason.  Or the number of passing yards in a playoff game.

    Your premise must include SB victories, which it does not. Eli may prove to be the best QB in that family.

    Huh, if the Aints get to the SB, Seyton won't even be the best Manning of all time...

    The Dolts should make Manning thier QB coach next year and if healthy allow him to play as a Player coach.  They could restucture his contact with insentives if he plays.  He's already coaching the offense when he's on the field so why not.  In a few years he could even be the OC or HC.

    Re: Condolences to UD6.

    Brady, Peyton and Brees are definitely the solid corps of their generation's elite QBs...and they span the different storylines too. Peyton is the college star...known #1 overall who inherits a crappy team and builds them into perrennial contenders. Brady...well you all know...Brady is the afterthought who fills in for the injured aging star and makes the most of his opportunity to become great. Then Brees is the known commodity out of college, taken as someone you knew could play...does very well for the team who drafted him, yet they show him no respect. He signs as a FA wiith one of the worst franchises historically in the game, and turns them instantly into a legit team.

    They really are all great stories...I'm not really sure which one is the better storybook ending.

    Yes. Playing every minute of December games outdoors in New Englans, Buffalo and or New York is just the thing for a QB rating. Too bad Manning had to play indoors where the weather was always perfect.

    Speaking of playing outdoors - how did that go for Drew Brees this year. Fact of the matter is playing indoors adds TONS to a QB rating over time.
