I agree he hasn't had the playoff success that Brady has had, probably because for most his career he had a dome team. The team is used to playing in a dome and when out in the elements, the team comepletely changes, not only Peyton. The playcalling changes, the cleats are different, the grip on the ball is different, wind, ect... Thats why Brees and the Saints struggle on the road, thats why the Falcons struggle on the road, especially in the postseason. Its not because they arent great, its because of the change of the environments. Just my 2 cents. I know it is an excuse, but it is a pretty damn good one.
I just feel he gets a bad rap for everything, even the one and dones that arent his fault.
Again, Brady has had a better playoff career, but he also has had the better teams and coaching IMO.
So if playing on the road wasn't much of a hassle during the regular season, why did it become such an obstacle in the post season? Why did Peyton's play take a dive? I mean, the guy threw 3 TDs and 7 INTs during his SB run, after going 31/9 during the regular season. And let's not forget that he also threw a game-losing pick six to another dome team in his other Super Bowl appearance. That **** is on him.

all the arguements just prove one thing....
Its takes more than a great QB to win it all. It takes a team doing the right things and the right times and some luck as well.
Peyton and Brady are two of the best ever. All the other frivolous bull**** just makes for good arguements

You couldn't be more full of **** if you were break dancing in a Port-a-Potty.......Kruunch
Regardless of whatever happened prior to OT, it was Peyton Manning that panicked and threw that "Eliesque" INT that cost them the game against Baltimore Ravens. He also did it in SuperBowl against New Orleans Saints. The guy has had repeated chokes where he threw the INT that cost the game.
Granted, there is a huge difference when leaving a dome and playing outside and vice versa. Tom Brady never seems to have issues when he has to play indoors. Since NFL doesn't augment win/loss records, stats, etc.....etc..... then it really is a moot point.
Granted, Peyton Manning is a great QB, maybe the greatest regular season QB ever but there always seems to be some excuse for why he loses in playoff. He plays in a dome. He doesn't travel well. His teams aren't very good. His coach sucks. He doesn't like the cold etc......etc..... there always seems to be some excuse for Peyton Manning.
There are never excuses for Tom Brady.
