While looking at QB playoff performance Football Outsiders notes that both Tom Brady and Eli Manning are among the top 3 in DYAR. To gain some perspective they compared them to the top DYAR QBs since 1995. Who is at the top of the list? You might recognize him.
(Hopefully this puts to rest the notion that Eli's older brother had a habit of choking in the playoffs. Peyton Manning's postseason numbers – 63 percent accuracy, 7.5 yards per pass, 2.6 percent interception rate – are nearly identical to his regular season performances of 65 percent accuracy, 7.6 yards per pass, and 2.7 percent interception rate.)
Brady could post the highest single-game DYAR in history in the Super Bowl and he still wouldn't catch Peyton Manning here. He's also unlikely to throw three or four interceptions and finish with negative DYAR, so he probably won't fall back behind Warner. In other words, win or lose in the Super Bowl, Brady's status amongst his peers probably won't ...
BEST OF MAXIM
Tom Brady is the golden boy quarterback who has the good looks to complement his supreme talents on the football field. He was able to land supermodel Gisele Bundchen as his wife, resulting in most of the male population in the country dying to trade places with him. Despite what he has to offer, married women say they’d prefer to have an affair with Giants quarterback Eli Manning...
The nation's worst nightmare has come true.
It's looking more and more like Peyton Manning has played his last snap as a member of the Indianapolis Colts. If the Colts' claim that they "won't pass" on Andrew Luck with the top pick in the 2012 NFL Draft didn't spell it out for you before, perhaps the hiring of defensive-minded coach Chuck Pagano did the trick.
And, of course, there's that whole...
He sounded upbeat, as upbeat as I've ever heard Peyton Manning. And he sounded like a man at peace, resigned to whatever his ultimate football fate might be.
INDIANAPOLIS (AP) - Colts owner Jim Irsay is upset Peyton Manning took his complaints public this week.Shortly after introducing new coach Chuck Pagano on Thursday, Irsay said Manning should have kept his thoughts "in the family." When asked whether a decision on Manning was next, Irsay went into a long ...
INDIANAPOLIS—The next chapter in the Peyton Manning saga could take a decidedly defensive turn.
Bob Kravitz notes that this is hostile territory for New England. As such, locals are certainly behind little brother Eli:
Let's just say that Indianapolis, home to an AFC team, just became an NFC town.
A New York Giants town.
An Eli Manning town.
It's going to be up to Peyton's little brother, Eli, whose team survived and overcame the San Francisco 49ers in overtime...
The New York Giants have advanced to the Super Bowl by beating the San Francisco 49ers in overtime 20-17. These two teams have had a history in playing epic games dating back to 1986 when the Giants defeated the 49ers 17-3 to capture their first Super bowl title. On the Giants second Super Title run in 1990, they defeated the 49ers again in a classic battle 15-13 on a Matt Barr...
