This week, we asked our social media followers this question: If Manning were a Patriot and Brady were a Colt, how would history and today's NFL be different?
Here were the best responses....
VIA Twitter ( @CBSSportsNFL )
@18to88 Manning would have 6 rings and Brady none.
Mike Gameover football is a team sport and overall the pats and brady had better teams than manning especially in the defense dept. had u put peyton on all those good teams he too would have had as many rings or more than brady. the biggest difference is peyton MAKES great players out of noone, brady makes himself great with other good players around him
Bob Swallow With the Pats system,I would say the Pats history would be pretty much the same. Who knows about the SB against the Giants if we had Manning instead of Brady? On the flip side,I think the Colts would have done better in the post season with Brady at QB. I agree that Brady has done so well due to the Pats system,but I also think he would be a legit top 5 QB outside the system.
Jon C. Myslivy name a single Patriot offensive player that left the team and did better then when they Had Brady as a QB... Ill give you the answer - NONE. Branch, Givens, Gaffney, Watson, Glenn, etc - none of these players ever had the stats after they left New England.
