Tom Brady and Peyton Manning, probably the two best quarterbacks of all time in the National Football League when it comes to statistics. However, who is better between each other? A great number of people that watch football, including myself, believe that Tom Brady is a better quarterback than Peyton Manning. Statistically, Brady abolishes Manning in every way in the National Football League! Every season and postseason, Brady has a better QB rating than Manning, better TD/Int ratio and more super bowl rings! It is obvious that Tom Brady is clearly the better quarterback than Peyton Manning. Peyton Manning is great quarterback and he has a great number of Passing yards and MVP's under his belt however Brady pulls more wins and of course...Super bowl wins and that is what matters the most in football. According to Chris Curtis from CBS boston on Latest sports, he believes that Tom Brady is the "better" quarterback than Peyton Manning. He states, " In Brady"s 23 playoff games he has a plus-21 touchdown-to-interception ratio, more than double Peyton"s plus-9 TD-to-INT count.These two men will forever be linked in their Hall of Fame careers, but there should no longer be any doubt as to who is the greatest quarterback of this generation. It is the man who is at his best when the games meant the most. It is Tom Brady."

Peyton Manning is an awesome quarterback and will probably be a hall of Famer however he does not finish (win the most important games) like Tom Brady. Brady is the Best quarterback in the NFL today... enough said!

I'd like to thank my opponent for starting this debate.

"Statistically, Brady abolishes Manning in every way in the National Football League! Every season and postseason, Brady has a better QB rating than Manning, better TD/Int ratio and more super bowl rings!"

While Brady does have a better career QB rating, barely, 96.6 to 95.7, Manning holds many other career statistics over him. Manning has about 15,000 more total career yards than Brady, a better completion percentage, 65.2 to 63.7, over ten yards passing per game more, and 446 to 334 touchdowns.

I also compared the seasons they both played a full 16 games. These years include 2002-2007, and 2009, 10 and 12. Only two times in those eight years did Brady beat Manning in Quarterback rating. Only three out of the eight did Brady lead him in yardage. Only three out of eight did he lead him in touchdowns.

Manning has more career wins with slightly less win percentages despite having worse teams.

As far as rings go that is a team achievment. No player can win that in the NFL without the help from all the other guys.
