    Brady has had slightly better defenses in his career, but Manning has had better receivers overall. His superior supporting cast on offense is the reason for his inflated stats.
    slightly better defenses? Those SB winning teams defenses were a lot more than slightly better than any defense PM has ever had.
    Here we go Broncos Here we go!

        Do you have their scoring D ranks also, because last time I checked you don't win with yards you win with points




        Adopted Broncos:
        (2011-2013) Eric Decker
        (2014-2018) Bradley Roby

          Those rankings mean nothing specially before the NFL got hardcore on the DBs contacting legal recievers down field (2006 iirc).

          NEs defense would give PM all kinds of problems before the NFL got serious about the DBs contact as the Patriots would abuse the grey area more then any team I can remember this century. You probably have to go to the Raiders glory days to find a team abusing DB contact more then the patriots did during their first 2 or 3 Super Bowls.
          Time to build on the win and grow the team from some solid play higher level of play
