Because I haven't seen you mention it one time.
Ok he played with "scrubs" at WR. But that D was stacked... Correct?
That was the biggest difference between the Colts and Pats those years. IMO
Not to mention you had a rule made up in a game. And your his kicker was kicking game winners in a blizzard. You don't give any of those guys any credit???
Do I need to mention all that, really?
Cuz the worst stretch of playoff games Peyton ever had, Freeney, Mathis, Doss, Bethea, and Mr. Glass carried him to his only title, with a former New England kicker kicking 3FG's in the Super Bowl.
So, in a QB thread, speaking on Tom, Peyton, and Brees, pre and post rule changes, I need to go thru the entire 53 man roster to make sure I divert as much credit away from Tom as possible?
This is still needed, in 2013?
Yes, Tom needed a full team to win 3 Super Bowls, all the way down to his punter and long snapper.
Point is, Tom and Peyton were already great pre rule changes. Drew became great after those changes, 06-07ish on. So to me, while great, Drew still slots in behind those two. If someone wants to sell me on Drew being ahead of one or both of them, I'd listen to the argument.
