I agree that the Denver win over NE in January was >>>>>> NE win over Denver in November.

Re: Peyton Manning landing spot - it's Denver

Unfortunately for Denver, this time NE isn't missing half their team. Gronk, Wilfork, Revis (replacing the always-injured Talib) are going to be at this one. And the game is in NE.

Care to wager on which AFC team is going to the SB???

Re: Peyton Manning landing spot - it's Denver

with the way these teams have performed recently (DEN this year, NE in playoffs) it'll probably be cincinnati.

All I'm hearing is that excuses are fine for one team but not the other. I'm not going to place a bet with some guy that could get perma banned any second.

Re: Peyton Manning landing spot - it's Denver

Denver was the better team last January. Peyton was better than Brady.

This January I think it will be different. Maybe put your money where your mouth is?

Also lol @ excuses. Getting perma-banned? I have been banned for exactly one day since I joined this site. What a pathetic excuse.

Would be happy to escrow. Willing to do up to $1K.

You going to man up for once?

Is that what he said? No.

He said he was afraid of me getting perma-banned. And I wouldn't past some of the peyton-lovers to make this wager. Already got two guys to do it last month.

FYI, even though I'm a pats homer, I'm still in the "Manning is better" camp.
Uh because Brady doesn't have an argument as far as peak goes. I don't get how anyone could watch them at their best and think he's close to as good. To each his own though.

FTR I think Brady could be > Manning at this point and time. It's as close as it's ever been. I've been down on Manning all year though, he just doesn't look right at all and can barely throw the ball.

GS- I'll take Denver +3.5 in a potential AFCG for $100 if you have anyone who can vouch for your reputability. Basically I'm willing to bet that Denver is ~as good as NWE on a neutral site...not 3-4 points better like you're asking for

And if Denver doesn't make it to the AFCG??

How about this: I get NE making the SB, you get Denver. Anyone else makes it from the AFC, we push.

I will give you +130. What do you think?

Re: Peyton Manning landing spot - it's Denver

Meh- New England's probably better & their path (worse seeded opponent in divisional round, home game in afccg regardless) to the SB will always be slightly easier. Basically I don't disagree with any of this-

1) New England has been better this year
2) Tom Brady has been close to as good, if not better than Manning this year
3) New England's road to the SB is easier due to 1 & 2.

Given those things it seems like a pretty horrible bet for me. I'll dip a little bit and give you NWE +2.5 in a Broncos/Pats AFCCG but that's the most "confident" I'll get.

I am assuming you meant NE -2.5. In which case, I accept.

Then the bet is a wash. Brady has the easier road to the SB so wouldn't really prove much pertaining to this discussion anyway.

Meh the bet isn't about the discussion. It is just a bet.

The discussion is pointless anyway. Guys in the Manning camp are going to stay there, same with the guys in the Brady camp.

Video equipment alone is not sufficient. You need BB to break down the recording on said video equipment.

but yea, 38 yo Peyton Manning with like 20% arm strength and no mobility is gonna put up top 6 seasons yards, tds, y/a, any/a, ny/a, any/a for his illustrious career, and, for the 3rd straight year, lead the team to 12+ wins and a bye. what a **** QB. he definitely isn't close to what he was when he was actually the GOAT, which makes it even more hilarious that he gets jumped on so much for his Broncos-era play when it's clearly just re-enforcing the argument that peak Manning is more valuable than any player in NFL history. it's really not that close.
Brady > Manning is far more plausible (even though wrong) than Kobe > LeBron.

Re: Peyton Manning landing spot - it's Denver

Wow I knew about Peyton's sexual harassment bill Cosby type scenario where he is paying hush money, but attempted murder too?

In Hawaii before the Pro Bowl, Cutler became a victim to a prank organized by fellow Pro Bowlers, Peyton Manning, Nick Mangold, and Kris Dielman. He was tossed into a pool, and even though Manning remembered to swipe away his cell phone, Cutler's blood sugar monitor was ruined. A replacement one was found at a drugstore, and Cutler played without incident.[58]
