While I admire and respect Manning's work ethic and regular season success, I have never been much of a fan of his. I heard on NFL radio today a Steeler fan suggesting that Manning would not win behind the Steelers line. (I agree). The hosts thought if Manning had played for the Steelers, with their defense, he may have 4 rings. I completely disagreed, but I decided to check it out. If this is right, then Manning delivers in the postseason, but does not have a good enough defense to win. He must lose a lot of shoot outs due to his great quarterbacking, but poor defense?
I don't think so. I looked it up. He has nine losses in the playoffs. His offense has scored more than 2 TDs a grand total of one time. He has scored: 16,17,0,14,3,18,24,17,17.
In his super bowl win, he had one TD, and one pick .
Sorry, this does not cut it. The guy clearly cannot get it done in the post season. Like I said, I don't like the guy, so I am biased. But facts are facts. . Had a chance to go down with 5 mintues left to tie the game, and he could not get it done.
Great regular season QB. Maybe the best ever. That is all.
