Is Peyton Manning better than Tom Brady? Or is it Vice Versa?
I just need a response and 3 reasons why you chose who you chose?
I appreciate anyone who responds.

Con

I accept. Here are 3 reasons why I believe Tom Brady is better than Peyton Manning:

1: Tom Brady has won more Super Bowls, 3-1

2: Brady leads the head to head series 11-5

3: Tom Brady leads the head to head series in the AFC Championship game

I hope this helps.

Thank you.

For all your arguments, i could say that tom also had the better team both offensively and defensively, which makes tom's job much less stressful compared to Peyton's job in which he had to carry the team by himself on his shoulders. He couldn't rely on his defense to get the job done.

I disagree. Becuase while Manning was in Indianapolis, he had star players to help him like Reggie Wayne and Marvin Harrison. And now in Denver, he has star players like Wes Welker and Demaryius Thomas. Brady also lead his team to a 16-0 regular season record in 2007, and has a career playoff record of 18-8, compared to Peyton Manning who is 11-11. Brady is better when it matter most.

Thank you.

Offense wins games, but defense wins championships, Tom Brady was successful in his early career because he had a great defense, ranked number 6 overall, Peyton's defense was ranked 29th overall, which meant he had to do most of the work.

My opponent has basically contradicted himself. You need to win games in order to win championships.

In 2007, Brady threw 50 touchdowns and only 8 interceptions, which meant he had better than a 6-1 touchdown to interception ratio. My opponent has not refuted any of my round 2 arguments, which means they still stand. Also, I have provided stats for why Brady is a better quarterback than Manning. My opponent has gone by opinion.

Thank you. Vote con.

Tom Brady might be better than Peyton Manning, but until he gets four Lombardi's like Terry Bradshaw did, he can keep dreaming of being the greatest ever. Besides, nobody outside of New England likes him.

Reasons for voting decision: The fact that you noted that tom brady was 16-0 you have to have a great team. Pro point that manning had to do more is more convincing.
