Actor Rob Lowe's tweet that Peyton Manning won't return to football may or may not be true, but it got us thinking. If Manning's career is indeed over, has Tom Brady already secured his spot in history above the Colts great? The question involves, of course, more than just Super Bowl championships, as Brady already owns a 3-1 advantage in that department and has a chance to add a fourth with two more victories. As a postseason quarterback, too, there is no debate, as Manning is 9-10 as a starter and Brady is 14-5. Yet while Brady's been on a...

Defense Still Wins Championships

The year of the quarterback: fans thought 2009 was that season with ten quarterbacks amassing 4,000 yards or more. QB’s such as Peyton Manning, Tom Brady and Drew Brees made it look easy, dropping balls into places where they’d never been before. Even QB Kyle Orton, who seemingly couldn’t throw the ball effectively downfield, passed for 3,802 yards in 2009. But quarterback...
