Brady vs Manning (again)

On one team, you have a guy who has been getting it done (against the Dolphins no less!) year after year.  And they get to the conference championship by running the football!

And on the other, you have my current man crush in Peyton Manning. 

As you may have heard me say in the past, no QB has ever led a team to a Superbowl, and then moved to another team to lead them to a SuperBowl.  Manning looks to buck that trend, and I think (perhaps wish!) he will.

But what of that stat?  Historically, teams will rid themselves of an aging QB (Joe Namath, and Jonny U come to mind), and he may enjoy some success elsewhere - but by then he's older and 'breaking down'....and the sample size is small.  There are only 30 or so possible players who could be in that category, and nearly all of them never played for another team.

So it seems that Peyton could be primed for another SuperBowl appearance.

And by the way, so much for the preseason hype that the Patriots aren't very good, and somehow the Hernandez nonsense would work against them...

Yes. The stat is won a Super Bowl for a second team. Thanks for catching that
