    Peyton deserves it. He has redefined the position of QB

    No, not really

    Just been watching the game for 45 years. Peyton is an elite QB. Extremely smart, quick release, strong arm, sees the field as well as I have ever seen. Like I said, I think he redefines the position of QB.
    I'm a Giants fan and watch Eli every week. He has grown significantly in the job and has many of Peytons qualities...but he is nowhere close

    Having a kicker in there is suspect.

    how has he redefined the position?

    i don't think he's doing anything differently (or better) than johnny unitas did 50 years ago.

    Peyton Manning is a great QB. No doubt about that, but I find his style to be somewhat BORING. When does he ever make the game exciting? How often does he pull off the great come backs like Brett Favre? He's methodical, predictable and downright boring to watch. Give me a QB that can bring a team back from an seemingly insurmountable deficit and snatch victory from the jaws of defeat any day. Oh and don't forget, one that can win the big games when they count... regularly!

    Give me the Joe Montana's and Brett Favre's of the game and I'll be happy. Even Tom Brady can make the game interesting. Stick me with Peyton Manning and I'll be asleep.

    That being said... I'll trade you Josh Freeman for Peyton Manning and a player to be named later in a heart beat... :D I can use the naps and the Succaneers can use the wins. :rofl:

    Tony Gonzalez number three? I don't think so.

    Now lets get to the real question here. The hell with the last decade.

    Who is the greatest Colts Quarterback? Manning or Unitas?

    Better QB... Manning.
