Brady was lucky to even make the superbowl that year.
He played a brutal game vs. SD that year, and since THE TEAM around him was great, they overcame his short commings and went on to play in the superbowl.
He also played bad last year vs Ravens and the team overcame it in the AFC Championship.
Aside from our superbowl year, Manning has never had the fortune of playing remotely close to bad and the team being able to overcome it in the playoffs. Never. Zero wins.
Brady has 6 playoffs wins where he QB rating was 76 or lower.
