Default Re: It needs to be discussed. Manning and his shortcomings

The o-line is actually more important to Brady than who he has catching the ball, as evidenced by some of the no-name receiver corps he's won SBs with.

But if you aren't hitting him, he'll kill you. That's a 100% guarantee.

Now everyone get back to what a choking beeyotch Peyton Manning is.
I'm not sure how true that is considering how Cassel got sacked a ton in 2008 when Brady was out. I would credit Brady for having an ultra quick release and being able to read defenses, possibly credit him for giving line calls too.
