Buccaneers QB Tom Brady is one of the best quarterbacks in NFL history. He has several records to his name as a signal caller, which are unbreakable. One player Brady has always been compared to is the former Broncos QB, Peyton Manning. 

Recently, former NFL linebacker Bart Scott in an interview said that he would prefer playing against Brady rather than facing Peyton Manning. Bart Scott’s interview got viral, and now the whole NFL world is discussing Brady vs Manning.

Reacting to the Bart Scott’s comment, legendary sports analyst Skip Bayless said Tom Brady is much better than Peyton Manning. He said“All I know is that Brady has won seven super bowls, but the first six came with game-winning drives in the fourth quarter overtime. That’s not Peyton, that’s Brady. That’s what Brady did.”

Bayless thinks Brady can manage a game as well as Peyton Manning. He gave the example of Brady’s seven Super Bowl wins and regarded him as the king of comebacks that lands him above Peyton Manning.

Former wide receiver Keyshawn Johnson personally would like to play as a teammate of Brady. Johnson says“I’d probably rather catch footballs from Tom Brady. It’s a lot easier. The balls, the rotation of the ball is pinpoint accuracy, all of those sort of things.”

The popular analyst Colin Cowherd said Tom Brady is the most productive and efficient quarterback ever. Cowherd thinks Brady’s hallmark is execution, and he proves himself whenever given a chance.
