Statistically Young was one of it not the best all time. Outside of statistics, I still think so, but that's more like an opinion.
Montana has 3 more chips wit a flawless record in the big game. Nuff said. As for mannings latest super bowl showing. The colts simply lost to the better team. Saints when healthy had a better offense tops in the league 3 out of the last 4 yrs and manning plays offense, a better defense when porter and greer were healthy and gregg williams didn't have to help the backup corners and could apply pressure and freelance wit his safeties, better special teams hartley nailed all fgs and they got reggie, and damn sure better coaching. This was an even contest only because of manning being as good as he is, and a pretty good cast, but I didn't see the colts d stopping a number 1 offense even better than peyton's. Montana went 4 times and won em all and could've had a 3peat if craig hadn't fumbled to the giants we would've beat dem bills. Montana is the standard, not peyton. Peyton lost to brady too many times like young lost to aikman. Young is who I compare peyton to in terms of success. How soon we forget the past and become infatuated wit the present
