Peyton Manning Is The LeBron James Of The NFL: A Choker In Big GamesAFC News, BREAKING NEWS, News, NFC News, NFL Thursday, March 8th, 2012
All the Peyton Manning talk is over the top. Whichever team gets him isn’t going to win a Super Bowl. Manning isn’t a big game quarterback. He plays his best football during the regular season, not in the playoffs. Remember he has won only one Super Bowl and threw two interceptions in that game and was bailed out by his defense.
Both LeBron James and Manning may be the greatest players to ever play in the regular seasons of their respective sports. Manning is truly magnificent prior to the snap with the way he changes the play to run the best play against the defense.
I’ve seen him carve up defenses like it was a piece of cake.
Of course James has more career left than Manning, but both have underperformed in the post season. I’ve seen Manning get destroyed by the Patriots numerous times. I saw him play poorly against the Kansas City Chiefs in the year in which the Colts won the championship, but he was bailed out by the Indy defense.
The media’s over-hyping this whole thing because he’s been a great regular season quarterback, but remember he’s won only one Super Bowl in 13 years of playing in the NFL. Can you be the best ever going 1 for 13.
I could still understand Andy Reid being interested in Manning because he is a great quarterback and would be an improvement over Michael Vick, but like James, he doesn’t take his game to another level in the playoffs like All-Time greats like a Joe Montana or Michael Jordan.
Check out the stats, Manning has come up very small in the playoffs.
Even in the one Super Bowl which he won, Manning didn’t play well. He beat a mediocre Chicago Bears team led by Rex Grossman, who threw an interception which was run back for a touchdown. In the Super Bowl which the Colts lost, Manning came up very small by throwing an interception which was returned for a touchdown and cost the Colts the game.
