Read It and Weep: 5 Reasons Why Peyton Manning Is Still Greater Than Tom Brady

It's the great sport debate of our generation.

The Manning/Brady duel continues to rage on, splitting opinion all across the country. It has fuelled one of the fiercest and most entertaining rivalries in all of football between the Colts and Patriots and is a timeless discussion, as lively as ever after Brady's recent MVP season.

So what makes it so compelling?

Well, essentially it's like something out of "Blood Brothers". Manning, picked first overall in the 1998 Draft and son of former NFL quarterback Archie Manning, has been touted for greatness in the league ever since he was an embryo.

Brady on the other hand was found in the depths of the 2000 Draft and, despite being written off at every stage of his career, defied his underdog status to rise to the very top of the game.

There, he met a more-than-worthy adversary in Manning and ever since the two have fulfilled their destiny to be arch-rivals. (In reality the two are close friends, but let's keep that on the down low for the purposes of this article.)

There's no doubt that both are great players, slam-dunk Hall of Famers and ultra-competitive athletes. But sports fans being sports fans, of course one must be mightier than the other.

So apologies Tearful Tom, but here's five reasons why, 13 years after he was drafted, Goliath still kicks David's butt any day.
