                       I love it. On the level of a five year old. Look at this board and go to the Denver Post board and compare. Listen to their media and listen to the Boston media. Compare. The Manning people have never given a darn about Brady and the Brady people have always been obsessed with Manning. What does that tell you?



    Than why are you here bringing it up?  Are you so sad that no one here gives two Sh!ts about Sucky Lucky that you need to start a thread about Seyton Manning?  Why don't you go to the Broncos Board and start rooting for your new team?

    Good Night John Boy

                            Spent alot of time on the Indianapolis Star site. There was never much talk about Tom Brady, maybe the week before a Colts-Patriots game. That's about it. Most of the talk or messages I saw were amicable and complimentary to Brady. Go to the Denver Post website. I don't think you'll see anything there about Brady. Go on the message boards. I doubt Brady's name even comes into the conversation very often............In Boston? Good lord. That's all people talk about. Peyton this. Peyton that. Horseface. Gomer. On and on. If I were a psychologist from Germany and I was studying this. I'd have to say one of these groups has a bit of an "inferiority complex" {and it ain't the Manning camp.} I'm interested. Could someone explain to me {in a non confrontational manner} Boston's obsession with Peyton Manning? What bothers you so much?

    In the HoF, they will not induct them as BoaT, but, simply as HoF QBs.

    It's probably because New Englanders believe in substance over glitz and has nothing to do with inferiority. Brady is the better more well rounded QB out of the two. Manning, has the glitzy stats, has had his way paved in gold in the NFL, is shoved down our throats everytime there is a tv show about football, had rules changed so he and his team could win superbowls and is seen on every other commercial on TV here. I almost forgot, he also gets more phantom PI calls go his way than the rest of the league has ever had since the beginning of the PI rule.

    Why don't we like Manning???

    For many reasons, but I'll focus on the special scheduling rules that aren't applied equally that lead to the NFL shoving Peyton Manning down the Patriots and their fans throat every year vs. providing a variety of teams and competition to watch. You have to go back to 2002 to find a year that the patriots were not scheduled against a Peyton Manning team. 2011 doesn't count as a year off, because they were scheduled, even though Manning was injured. This streak continues with the scheduling of the Broncos teams. This streak would have continued an 11th year for the Colts in 2012 but Manning went to Denver, and Denver continued there and has been going strong.

    According to the NFL, teams are supposed to scheduled on a rotating basis through the division, however the patriots have been scheduled far fewer times against the other AFC South teams during the same stretch. Since the creation of the AFC South in 2002 -2012, Here's the number of regular season games the Patriots have had against teams the following number of times:

    Colts 11* (10 with Manning)

    Titans 5

    Jaguars 4

    Texans 3

     

    Number of times Denver has been scheduled vs the Patriots since Manning was signed in 2012:

    2 and counting.

    "Spent alot of time on the Indianapolis Star site. "

    You lost me at hello. 

    The time you spent wasting on the Star site is time you can never have back. 

    "The Manning people have never given a darn about Brady" 

    Well, the continued presence of Mannning and Colts trolls in this forum over many years says differently.

    Peyton fans are understandably obsessed with Brady as they wish that Peyton had thrown less crucial postseason interceptions and had more rings. 

    It's totally understandable but there is a treatment for your issues:

    Because Boston is a better sports town than some corn field southwest of Toledo.
