    He hasn't always had great olines. Scheme plays a big part in how he always looks protected.

    If you come after Brady with anyone but your front 4 he will eat you up.

    He gets rid of the ball quick and his receivers and TEs are very well coached. Unlike ours.

    No it's not. It's media spouted garbage.

    Yeah, because the media are running around calling Peyton a choker? :rolleyes:

    People, please relinquish well worn Internet catch phrases and think for yourself.

    It seems that is the argument people use, I agree it is hardly satisfactory.

    Peyton is a little bit of a choker. But every quarterback that ends his season in the playoffs probably ends on a less than stellar performance.

    The lesson here isn't an excuse for Romo. It's how hard it is for even the best to win a championship.

    The other lesson is how rare it is for a qb past 34 yo to win one.

    Peyton's choking has been going on since he was in College.

    The year after he graduated his team finally got over the hump and won a National Title.

    I think you're missing the point. We expect such passes from Joe Flacco or Mark Sanchez. We don't expect it of a sure Hall of Famer and arguably the GOAT in Peyton Manning.

    This wouldn't be about Romo if many Cowboys fans didn't continuously pull his stats in trying to compare him with Brady, P. Manning and other upper-echelon quarterbacks.

    Romo fans have hit rock bottom. Poor people, your misery shall continue until this bum is gone. Forget Payton, he has jewelry and skins on the wall. Our problem is this choker we have, but continue your moral victory walk of shame.

    This is what happens when you have a cup cake schedule like the Broncos had. Did people really think that they were a Super Bowl team,:rolleyes: Now Peyton can go run his Papa John franchise.

    Brady: 3 SB wins pre cheating.
    Brady: 2 SB losses post cheating.

    Choker.

    Well, it wasn't a trick question and its an important one if you're going to discuss great QBs and use championships as a cornerstone for success.

    He did have two in 58 and 59. The Colts won another championship in 68 but Morrall was the QB for the vast majority of that season. And they lost the SB to the Jets.

    Here is, in the opinion of many, either the greatest or 2nd greatest QB of all time and most base that on actually watching the guy play including calling his own plays. Which brings us to the story of Manning who also runs his own offense. I don't think the overwhelming majority of people here understand that importance of any of that.

    Teams win championships and QBs are particularly important for that but not the only thing. Obviously the more championships the easier it is to consider them 'great'. But there's more to it than that. And that's how many many people who put people in the HOF and others who lend their expertise in other ways feel evaluation is multifactorial. So maybe the whole thing is just not as simple as how many or how few championships you won.

    I understand why everyone would bring up tony with how Peyton screwed the game up today but he's won a Super Bowl. We haven't in over 15 years. Peyton is definitely a big time choker but no comparison with tonyv
