It is a debate that has reigned over two of the best players in the NFL over the past decade. Who is the better quarterback, Peyton Manning or Tom Brady. However, we may now have an answer as former Patriot Aquib Talib spoke out on the subject recently.
Talib signed with the Denver Broncos this offseason after spending two years as a cornerback with the New England Patriots.
When asked to compare the two quarterbacks by NFL Network via Pro Football Talk, Talib said:
“You gotta go Peyton Manning. Tom is a good friend of mine... [But Manning] had an awesome year. He tore it up. He like set the record for touchdowns. He beat Tom in the AFC Championship. You gotta give it to Peyton."
Although Brady has won more championships than Manning, with three to one, he has not been to a Super Bowl since 2011 and fell short to his old rival last postseason.
Analysts have speculated as to whether Brady's play is in decline or whether his relative lack of success in recent years is due to the lack of weapons afforded to him.
Meanwhile, Manning has bounced back from serious neck surgery to have a record breaking season in 2013, despite losing the Super Bowl.
In reality, Manning is probably the better quarterback of the two whilst Brady was able to lead perhaps the greatest dynasty at it's height.
Who do you think is the better quarterback? Let us know in the comments.
