Tom Brady is better than Peyton Manning says NFL legend

Peyton Manning threw his 500th career touchdown this Sunday just gone, putting him in a club of just two with the honour.

The only other NFL quarterback on the list ahead of him is Brett Favre, who boasts 508 career TD's to Manning's measly 503. With Manning and the Denver Broncos coming up against the New York Jets this weekend, you have to wonder when Manning will break the record, in the first quarter or second?

However, despite Manning looking to seal his fate as the best passer in the history of the National Football League, Super Bowl winning coach Tony Dungy has come out and said that Tom Brady has had the much better career than his counterpart.

Despite all the personal accolades and records Manning boasts, Dungy said the most important thing is winning, which is why he feels Brady is on top with three Super Bowl wins and five appearances compared to one Super Bowl win and three appearances by Manning.

"It's all about getting the Super Bowls and winning, and Tom's been to five of them," said Dungy on the Dan Patrick show.

"And that's what you're looking for. But we'll see where it goes from here with Peyton Manning. John Elway didn't win any until his last two years ... your career is not over until it's over. Right now I'd say Brady's definitely in the lead."

Manning All Day

It's interesting to note that Brady has been named NFL MVP twice, while Manning has won the award five times, most recently in 2013 when he blitzed passed all regular season throwing records.

There is no doubt that out of the two, Manning is the better quarterback. He's the man you would want on your team and shows no signs of letting up his relentless grip over NFL defenses, compared to Brady who is two years younger and and has been struggling immensely at the start of this season.

Dungy also went on to say that he though Andrew Luck would be the man to take the touchdown record from Peyton in the future, which if he stays healthy, not many could dispute.
