Is it a fair statement to say Peyton Manning's defense and running game won his only super bowl?

I know what your thinking, you think that Peyton Manning is a Top 3 QB of all time and nothing is ever bad about him. Oh he's not a system QB the colts won 11 games last year because it was a fluke haha sure they did they won 11 games with a worse roster then what peyton manning has had over the years. But back... show more I know what your thinking, you think that Peyton Manning is a Top 3 QB of all time and nothing is ever bad about him. Oh he's not a system QB the colts won 11 games last year because it was a fluke haha sure they did they won 11 games with a worse roster then what peyton manning has had over the years. But back to the question.

During the postseason of Peyton Manning's super bowl year in 4 games he threw for an embarrassing 3 touchdowns and 7 INT's. He won the MVP despite him throwing for only 1 touchdown and 1 INT with only 200 passing yards. He had 2 running backs who ran for a combined 200 yards that game. Dominic Rhodes should have been the MVP with 21 carries for 123 yards and a touchdown but they gave it to Peyton to further make his legacy grow. Big Ben had almost the same identical stats in his second super bowl but no he didn't get the MVP why? Because the media loves Peyton Manning because even though he complains to the refs yells at his teammates and throws interceptions more then any man I know they still love him. During the super bowl the colts had 2 interceptions and caused 3 fumbles that's 5 turnovers and Addai had 10 receptions, impressive. It looks to me that the colts won in spite of Peyton Manning. If you put in Trent Dilfer he could of won that game for you and that's how Peyton played in his super bowl Trent Dilfer like.

Do you agree? 3 touchdowns and 7 Interceptions does not lie. There's a reason why people call him the worst playoff QB of all time. He's 9-11 in the postseason and hasn't won a playoff game in 4 seasons. #Overrated
Update: @Chalise Yes LOL you do need so say more because your not convincing me Chalise at all :) During that great Baltimore game you said he had? He threw for 0 touchdowns and 2 INT's. I admit he picked himself up after he was choking the game away to the pats but the refs were on his side that game. Again also he... show more @Chalise Yes LOL you do need so say more because your not convincing me Chalise at all :) During that great Baltimore game you said he had?

Again also he had 2 hall of fame receivers and Brady had 6 dropped passes that game 2 could have been touchdowns by reche caldwell. It's funny ever since Adam Vinetari left Peyton Manning he hasn't won a super bowl either interesting :P Brady started off 10-0 That's never been done before so it's good enough for me Peyton started off 0-4 and is ending 0-3 and 7-7 is still better then 9-11. Brady made it to the superbowl with the 31st ranked defense and 2 midgets starting at receiver no disrespect to you hahaha but they are short. If Gronk actually ran full speed the last play he would of gotten their on time and won the game but he was lazy and injured. He had the top rated o
Update 2: He had the top rated offense because Brady made those plays happen. Receivers can't throw the ball to themselves you know. Ryan Mallet last year had 25% completion with 0 touchdowns and 1 Interception. Not just anyone can play in the system you know. A QB is the main ingredient for having a #1 offense Peyton... show more He had the top rated offense because Brady made those plays happen. Receivers can't throw the ball to themselves you know.

A QB is the main ingredient for having a #1 offense Peyton couldn't do it last year because he's just not as talented as Brady he's still a Top 15 QB in the league he's just not as good as Brady ;) I'm sorry the truth hurts XD
Update 3: At least those Tim Tebow led Bronco's could win a playoff game :) Hahaha and it's harder then it looks to play with those short receivers. The Ravens also were playing a revenge game and Bernard Pollard gave ridley a cheap shot which should of made it our ball but no. Things were just not going our way.... show more At least those Tim Tebow led Bronco's could win a playoff game :) Hahaha and it's harder then it looks to play with those short receivers. The Ravens also were playing a revenge game and Bernard Pollard gave ridley a cheap shot which should of made it our ball but no. Things were just not going our way. Lloyd was running wrong routes which led to an interception. Brady's O-Line was not protecting which led to batted balls. It was ridiculous. The Bronco's got 14 points off special team if the Pats had Trindon Holliday maybe they would of won oh yeah we probably would of :) Brady's 6 touchdowns and 2 INT's in his superbowls is still better then Peyton's 1 touchdown and 1 INT. Brady may of played alex smith like. But Peyton played Jay Cutler like. Maybe one day you'll be a fan of the best QB of all time. Please do :)
Update 4: LOL and btw Chalise I know Reggie is your other account XD just like summer it's okay though you needed to get that off your chest :)
Update 5: Yes LOL he is the GOAT but there has been no QB ever to win a championship with his 2 starting receivers being under 5 foot 11. Proof right there even Brady couldn't do it he was about to but wes welker can't make clutch plays. Amendola can though.
Update 6: @Devilish First off you have no clue what your talking about at all. The colts didn't have the last ranked defense that year they were 23rd. http://www.pro-football-reference.com/teams/clt/2006.htm Brady got a team to the super bowl with a ranked 31st defense, and that so called horrible defense you said they... show more @Devilish First off you have no clue what your talking about at all.

Brady got a team to the super bowl with a ranked 31st defense, and that so called horrible defense you said they had caused 5 turnovers! Wow Peyton didn't do crap. Peyton Manning didn't beat Brady, Reche Caldwell beat Brady who had 6 dropped passes, 2 were gonna be touchdowns so Brady would have won the game if Brady had actual receivers instead of Jabar Gafney and hm while Peyton had 2 hall of fame receivers and Dallas Clark LOL who has the advantage there? The reason Peyton Manning had those stats is because Peyton is just not a good QB when it comes to the postseason it's not that hard to realize he just is not good. He made bad reads. When you have 2 hall of fame receivers as your starter you can't blame them it's on him. Also Vick Ballard really? he averaged 3.9
Update 7: yards a carry?!? You had Marshuall Faulk and Edgerian James in his prime stop making stuff up. Luck Had a QB rating of 75. He won games because of Reggie Wayne and your right the roster is a lot different it's worse then the ones Peyton Manning has had over the years so shouldn't they be winning less games?... show more yards a carry?!? You had Marshuall Faulk and Edgerian James in his prime stop making stuff up. Luck Had a QB rating of 75. He won games because of Reggie Wayne and your right the roster is a lot different it's worse then the ones Peyton Manning has had over the years so shouldn't they be winning less games? Nope they went 11-5 after throwing the 2011 season while in 2010 Peyton only went 10-6. Talk about embarrassing. Exactly Tebow does suck so how come Peyton couldn't win a playoff game this year? I thought he was the best QB ever but nah he choked again. Brady has a better regular season and postseason QB rating then him. The reason Brady hasn't beat a Manning in the playoffs in 8 years is because Peyton can never make it far enough LOL he has 8 one and done's he's a joke. Brady is what now 9-4 against Peyton? Not too surprising. In 2009 that was with Matt Cassel not Brady. Sure Brady taught him everything he knew. Brady was spending hours end to teach him how
Update 8: to be a great QB and it worked but Brady can only do so much. Cassel went 10-5 as a starter but didn't make the playoffs. Luck went 11-5 as a starter cough cough it's a system. Your an idiot in 2009 Peyton had Reggie Wayne and Pierre Garcon his starters since day one. They were talks anthony gonzalez was... show more to be a great QB and it worked but Brady can only do so much. Cassel went 10-5 as a starter but didn't make the playoffs.

They were talks anthony gonzalez was gonna get beat out by Garcon anyway. But now there's no excuses Peyton has 2 hall of fame receivers again, if he can't win the super bowl this year then he's just a bad QB plain and simple. And the patriots would of loved to drafted Harrsion or wayne but they couldn't their defense was so bad they needed to keep on adding pieces and Brady gave them the okay because he cares about winning more then stats and money. Like how he restructured his contract this year. Why didn't Peyton do that? He was the reason they lost the game to the Ravens? Hmmm some class. Also Addai had a better career then Maroney he had two 1,000 yard rushing season but we picked the wron
Update 9: guy it happens that shows that your coaches are just better then ours another thing Brady has to deal with. Remember Bellichick was a horrible coach before he got Brady. Had 3 losing seasons with the browns then went to the pats with bledsoe they went 5-11 Then the next season after bledsoe started off 0-2 Brady... show more guy it happens that shows that your coaches are just better then ours another thing Brady has to deal with.

Had 3 losing seasons with the browns then went to the pats with bledsoe they went 5-11 Then the next season after bledsoe started off 0-2 Brady went 11-3 to win the division and the super bowl I think it's safe to say Brady made him. That's Espn LOL ever see The top NFL players in the game today. In 2011 Brady was higher then Manning in 2012 Brady was higher then Manning the players know these things more then the analysts. Your a joke as fan. Brady has a better record in the regular season and postseason as Manning a better QB rating in the regular season and postseason then Manning. Peyton hasn't even thrown for 5,000 yards in a season? or thrown 50 touchdowns? But he does have the leauge record for playoff losses 11 and Brady has the leauge record for playoff wins as a QB 17. Hey Peyton is catching up oh
