Our Early Edition crew debates why Peyton Manning is more well-liked nationally than Tom Brady.

Peyton Manning gets the edge in polls asking who fellow NFL players respect the most and with whom they would start a team. Why no love for Tom Brady?

Gary Tanguay, on Arbella Early Edition, points out that nationally Peyton Manning is better-liked than Tom Brady. Manning is just seen as more approachable. He does ads for Buick. Brady does ads for Uggs and $50,000 watches.

"Tom can whine and bitch with the best of them," Tanguay said. "When Brady whines, it's an annoying whine."

While Peyton may get the edge off the field. On the field, Tanguay says, one thing is clear: "They may not like Brady, but they fear him more."
