Uhm no, you idiot.
If the stats are identical, clutch play determines who played better.
Which is my entire point.
Eli Manning's stats are no where near Marino's, so why would you say something so stupid???
You want me to break down your argument further?
Manning - 65.3 %, 71,871 yards, 539 TDs, 96.5 Rating, 271 YPG
Brady - 63.5 %, 57,396 yards, 425 TDs, 96.4 Rating, 258.5 YPG
99.9% of the world considers Tom Brady the better QB, most consider him the GOAT QB. But why? It looks like Manning has better numbers across the board on the surface.
It's because of PRESSURE & CLUTCH.
Brady has that ability and Manning doesn't, which goes back to my point precisely. Touchdowns aren't valued the same. Touchdowns scored under pressure to win games late in the game are far more valuable than non-pressure touchdowns early in the game. It's a simple concept really, I'm not sure why you brain can't comprehend that.
Further more, you said TEAMS win games. Okay, now let me break your theory down even further.
If TEAMS win games than why doesn't Manning have as many super-bowls as Brady? Despite him putting up better numbers.
Does it not directly have to do with the fact that Tom Brady is clutch as hell and is ice cold under pressure; while Peyton consistently makes key mistakes in pressure situations.
Like I said, if you analyze statistics only; Manning looks like the better QB, however, if you actually evaluate pressure & clutch ability, Tom Brady is clearly the superior player.
Now, my point comes full circle.
QB A - 500 yards, 7 TDs & 2 INT
QB B - 450 yards, 6 TDs & 2 INT
I'd still think QB B should have a higher QB rating if he excelled in pressure situations and won the game for his team. While player A choked late in the game.
