Does comeback win prove Brady is better than Manning?


Does comeback win prove Brady is better than Manning?

Tom Brady was back to his old self Sunday as he led the Patriots to a 30-27 win over the Saints for his 28th career fourth quarter comeback victory.

With Brady’s latest game-winning drive, and Peyton Manning’s MVP-like season thus far, the long-time debate continued of who is the better quarterback on PostGame Live with Michael Felger, Troy Brown and Mike Flynn.

“I have always been a Tom Brady guy over Peyton Manning,” Felger said. “It goes back to, not even what they’ve done with in terms of working with less and all that, it’s in big games. In big games, Peyton Manning has just been far more prone to that big mistake in a big game than Tom Brady.”

However, Flynn thinks there is a small margin between the two quarterbacks.

“I’m a Brady guy, I think he is a great quarterback, I’m not denying that, he’s the guy I would pick,” Flynn said. “Before you start, look at the offense and the contexts of those wins and everything like that. Peyton was the team. He did a lot with that Colts team. Those weren’t great football teams.”

So, who do you think is the better quarterback? Let us know in the comments section.

Tom Brady delivers video message at funeral of Navy SEAL

Tom Brady delivers video message at funeral of Navy SEAL

Tom Brady delivered a video message last week at the funeral of Navy SEAL Kyle Milliken, a Maine native and former UConn track athlete killed in Somalia on May 5.

Bill Speros of The Boston Herald, in a column this Memorial Day weekend, wrote about Milliken and Brady's message.   

Milliken ran track at Cheverus High School in Falmouth, Maine, and at UConn, where he graduated in 2001. Milliken lived in Virginia Beach, Va., with his wife, Erin, and two children.  He other Navy SEALs participated in a training exercise at Gillette Stadium in 2011 where he met and posed for pictures with Brady.

Speros wrote that at Milliken’s funeral in Virginia Beach, Va., Brady's video offered condolences and thanked Milliken’s family for its sacrifice and spoke of how Milliken was considered a “glue guy” by UConn track coach Greg Roy.

Milliken had served in Iraq and Afghanistan, earning four Bronze Star Medals and was based in Virginia since 2004.  He was killed in a nighttime firefight with Al-Shabaab militants near Barij, about 40 miles from the Somali capital of Mogadishu. He was 38.

The Pentagon said Milliken was the first American serviceman killed in combat in Somalia since the "Black Hawk Down" battle that killed 18 Americans in 1993. 

In a statement to the Herald, Patriots owner Robert Kraft said: “It was an honor to host Kyle and his team for an exercise at Gillette Stadium in 2011. It gave new meaning to the stadium being known as home of the Patriots. We were deeply saddened to hear of Kyle’s death earlier this month.

“As Memorial Day weekend approaches, we are reminded of the sacrifices made by patriots like Kyle and so many others who have made the ultimate sacrifice to defend and protect our rights as Americans. Our thoughts, prayers and heartfelt appreciation are extended to the Milliken family and the many families who will be remembering lives lost this Memorial Day weekend.”
