I agree with you.
But Peyton > than Montana
lol. 4 super bowls > 1 super bowl
Peyton Manning is Dan Marino with 1 ring.
Joe Montana is the greatest player in NFL postseason history. period.
4 Super Bowls has something to do with the team you are on. The biggest myth in the world is that it's all the QB. And people right here on this very WZ believe that.
Montana had Ronnie Lott, Charles Haley, Fred Dean, Jerry Rice just to name a short few. It was pre salary cap era and nobody was as big of a spender as Eddie D. The 49ers fieled the best O Lines and best defenses year in and year out. And they had outstanding WR's, TE's and good special teams.
Montana didn't do that by himself. In fact in the salary cap era my bet would be he wouldn't win 4 times. Maybe 1 or 2.
Whether you agree with it or not, quarterbacks get judged on Super Bowls as well as their play. It just comes with the territory. When the country does well the President gets the credit, but he also gets the blame when we're in the toilet. Is it fair? Probably not, but it is what it is.
Manning had Harrison, Wayne, Clark, Sanders, Freeney, just to name a short few. The Colts have fielded some of the best offensive lines of the decade.
The salary cap theory is lame, because there is a greater disparity in the NFL now than there has ever been. The salary cap was supposed to alleviate these problems, yet year in and year out the same teams are winners. The Colts, Steeelers, Broncos, and Patriots have won 7 out of the last 11 Super Bowls. Salary Cap? Really?
