Ok if you really want to talk supporting casts, how about having a horrible defense? That makes being the qb a whole lot harder when you have to carry the team. I assume you watched the game? There were defenders in Mannings face every pass, he was knocked down on most of his throws and NE was getting great pressure. Yet he still managed to lead his team to victory. The pressure on Tom Brady was not near that which was on Manning and the Patriots lost. Peyton has proved he can win in the playoffs which was the only knock on him so now it is definitive that he is the best qb in the NFL.
