The NFL is obsessed with statistics, that can’t be denied. All through each game on tv, they wheel out the stats, and some of them are so obscure they mean nothing.
An example would be after a tackle, a caption comes up saying that player is the first player aged 23 to make 5 tackles in each quarter for the first 3 games of the season while going on to lose the match…
Not exactly a statistic or a record to make the headlines is it!
However, for my week 5 moment, I’m going to the stats, because 2 players hit landmarks this week, and they are the 2 headline players of the generation, Tom Brady and Peyton Manning.
The debate has raged for many years about who is the better, although pretty much everyone agrees they are both right at the top in the entire history of the game.
Brady has won 3 Superbowls, while Manning only has 1, but Manning has the records and consistently better stats over the years.
My view? For what it’s worth, I’d go for Brady. In the clutch situations, Manning has shown a tendency to crack, whereas Brady hasn’t.
This week, Tom Brady threw a pass that took him over 50,000 yards for his career – it’s only a very small list of players that he joins.
Peyton Manning threw for his 500th touchdown, only Brett Favre has thrown more, and his final record of 508 will fall to Manning pretty shortly.
Both impressive stats, and both impressive players, and well worthy of being in anyone’s moment of the week!
Do let me know what you think, I love the feedback!
