[QUOTE]Brady is incredible. His physical talents are greater than Manning's, but Manning is an OC on the field. As for Brady having different OC's, the pats have run the same offensive system since Brady's day one.

Underdoggg, you are usually well informed, but this statement is ludicrous - the Patriots have not run the same offense from day one with Brady at QB - for better or worse their philosphy has been far different from 2007 - 2009 than it was from Brady's beginning until 2007
This arguement is no different than the Marino/Montana debate of the late 80's.......at the end of the day you play the game to win the trophy.....Peter King fails to mention the 2 ( very easily could have been 3) SB MVP trophies that Brady has won
Miami doesn't even have the excuse of poor defense because they always had the ability (financially) to do something about it - Marino's best years were before the salary cap.
I sincerely believe that Brady is a better player under the intense pressure of playoff football than Manning - that HAS to weigh more than regular season
Underdoggg, Indy w/Manning has had the advantage of homefield most every year, yet they don't get it done
Lastly - the biggest irony is that Mannings worst year in the playoffs is when they won it all - after the 2 handed choke by the Patriots in the AFC title game with a corp of receivers that are now bagging groceries
For everyone else - if you don't already know - Peter King is an embarassing shill for Peyton Manning, he's had Manning as the MVP this year from week one - it can't be a surprise that he would say Manning is the better player
