The Bleacher Report's Mike Freeman had a great idea: Ask the people paid to evaluate NFL talent.or debate will probably live on forever, no matter what happens when Denver plays New England in Sunday's AFC championship game, but
So Freeman asked eight NFL personnel men the simple question, who is the better quarterback right now? Seven of the eight took Brady over Manning, who is going to win his fifth MVP this year.
Freeman asked what their answer would have been last year, and it was 6-2 Brady. Five years ago? That vote was tied 4-4. It's a tiny sample size but the 7-1 blowout is pretty surprising, given that Manning is coming off what is probably the greatest regular season in NFL history.
While it's tough to argue against Brady, obviously one of the greatest players ever, the main thing Freeman heard from the Brady voters was that he has done "more with less."
