Brady vs. Manning: Tale of Two Legacies

Who would you rather have on your team?
There is no doubt that both Manning (Peyton, that is) and Brady will be talked about amongst the greatest NFL quarterback's in history for a long time. We are certainly lucky to have been witnessing one of the best QB rivalries in NFL history. They both have rings, although Brady has two more. Peyton has the stats. So, who would you take? It comes down to what a team values more. Earlier this year, even Colts owner Jim Irsay made a comment that he would rather have the three rings versus the "superman" stats with only one ring. Here are the career number for both Manning and Brady.

Peyton manning:

   G Att Comp Pct Att/G Yds Avg Yds/G TD TD% Int Int%
234 8,202 5,368 65.4 35.1 63,059 7.7 269.5 470 5.7 215 2.6
  Tom Brady:

    G Att Comp Pct Att/G Yds Avg Yds/G TD TD% Int Int%
187 6,338 4,021 63.4 33.9 47,358 7.5 253.3 348 5.5 130 2.1
This is a rivalry that extends further than the numbers, but it is a good place to start. The debate may never end, and Peyton can certainly add to his legacy if he can lead the Broncos to a Super Bowl victory this upcoming postseason. As a fan, who would you take? Why?
