    Yes, he was better than Troy Brown when both were healthy. Especially in 1995 vs. 2002. He absolutely decimated Brown in every category those years. And again, the Patriots had THREE guys catch over 400 yards in 2002, the Packers had FIVE in 1995.

    You can look at names like Deion Branch and David Givens all you want and claim that makes the Patriots receivers better, but David Givens had 9 receptions that year and Deion Branch averaged 37 yards a game. They were rookies. The Packers were a much better team in 1995 and the league was a much better passing league in 1995.

    You can not compare the two seasons.

    You think Robert Brooks is better than Troy Brown? Brooks was the only receiver Favre had to throw to. That is why he had so many more yards.

    Stop with the nonsense that he had worse receivers. Robert Brooks almost had more yards receiving then the Pats #1 and #2 receivers combined in 2002. Erik Kramer also had 28 TD passes that year, and Scott Mitchell had 32. There were also 10 receivers that had 10 or more TD's that year, as opposed to 4 in 2002. It was a better year for passing in 1995. You can not compare the two seasons.

    With a quick glance through the stats from that year, I didn't find a single team with an outstanding, much less ridiculously good WR corp.

    The Ram's was pretty good, but they had 3 starting QBs that year.

Manning rolls to his left, buying just enough time to plant his feet and heave the ball downfield into the waiting arms of Marvin Harrison for a 25+ yard gain. IMO it's the best play of Peyton Manning's career to this point.
    Ok, one play. Now think of all the times Favre or Elway made something out of nothing. For Favre, you need to go back no farther than the Seahawks game. Remember that little shuffle pass? When he escaped from pressure and underhanded the ball to his receiver? Could Manning do that? Could Brady do that?

    I think he meant consistantly... not just one play...

    I would take the 02 Patriots supporting cast over the 95 Packers. Plus Tom Brady had 28 TDs, Favre had 38.

    I don't care about statistics all too much. For a quarterback, it's not really a true reflection of a person's abilities. Especially in a team sport. Montana's stats aren't the greatest of all time, but his resolve in my opinion is hard to match. Especially in the playoffs.

Montana had a pretty good cast, but it wasn't until his later years that they were all superstars. In his first two Super Bowls, his cast didn't include anyone that notable. On the offensive side at least. They were good players, but it wasn't like the Greatest Show on Turf or anything.
