    His beard looks better than Jake "The Mistake" Plummer's.

    And while he is fantastic to have on your team in real life you don't want him as a Fantasy QB, the numbers just aren't there...

    I was far more impressed with the NE defense. I think they could be a repeat.

    You mean Jake "the steak", because the Colts defense ate him up!

    Joe Montana's offenses were not spectacular, they were efficient; along a stingy defense, the 49ers ruled the 80's. Now you're looking at a man, who's two wins away from averaging a super bowl championship every other year of his NFL career. And he's doing it without a single "superstar" on his team's roster. Well, unless you think Corey Dillion is a superstar!

    While the media is patting the back of Peyton Manning and his stats, Tom Brady is quietly flying under the radar, heading into NFL history. And he's doing it the old fashion way... He earned it!

    interesting comparisons this generation and the last.

    Brady = Montana
    -Lots of Rings. Undersized QB's that were efficient at their position and won the big games.

    Manning = Marino
    -Every major passing record will be his by the time he's done. But will he ever win a super Bowl?

    McNabb = Elway
    -Elway reached the Super Bowl 3 times before he finally won it on his 4th. McNabb hasnt reached one yet and his fortunes may change in the near future but the similarities are distinct. Elway and McNabb are savvy guys that were mobile in their early years and great passers moving foward. Both managed to CARRY their teams as far as they could. Maybe Mcnabb can do it this year but who knows

    Roethlisberger = Farve
    -Thats not a very deep comparison. But Farve was the young gun when Montana, MArino and Elway were making their last strides. Now Rothelisberger comes in with a fresh start.

    Some food for thought.

    Kid's got a helluva an arm.

    And what was that stat? 8-0 last 8 play-off games, second only to some guy who's name now escapes me. He wins the Super Bowl, and he'll be tied for that.

    I think when its all said and done, he will be better than Montana. Just hoping he has 1 super bowl loss on that list at least. ;)

    I think he is going to have some problems in the Superbowl.
