Kolber got middle-ground treatment from Manning

Several years after nearly being groped by a Hall of Fame quarterback and only a week after getting the Gail Cunningham treatment from a future Hall of Fame quarterback, ESPN sideline reporter Suzy Kolber experienced normal, reasonable treatment from yet another future Hall of Fame quarterback.

After Monday night’s come-from-behind victory over the Dolphins, Colts quarterback Peyton Manning had plenty of time to talk to Kolber, only seven days after Patriots quarterback Tom Brady forced Kolber to chase him toward the locker room in order to get a couple of words out of him.

Apparently, Kolber hadn’t been informed by the Patriots that Brady wasn’t interested in participating in the post-game interview.

Perhaps Brady’s wife doesn’t allow him to talk to other women — and perhaps he fears that her (alleged) goon squad will be responsible for implementing any discipline.

Regardless of the reason, television money pays for a big chunk of the players’ salaries, and television exposure has a lot to do with their ability to generate a ton of money as spokesmen for various goods and services.

So, in this regard, Manning gets it and Brady doesn’t.

    Nice reference to Seinfeld – The Snub and the Gail Cunningham treatment.

    Oooooooh Mike, you’ve really started it now. Pats fans all over New England will be leaving mommy’s basement to track you down.

    Tom Brady is a very conceded and arrogant QB. The way he carries himself and his demeanor after he plays a bad game says it all. He is so used to having his way with opposing teams and now that teams either figured the Pats out, or he hasn’t really come back into form, it is evident that he is not used to what is going on around him. Think about it, ever since they lost the Supebowl to the Giants, the Pats haven’t been the same. Peyton Manning has some arrogance to him, but it does not even compare to the level of Tom Brady’s.

  5. m2002m says: Sep 23, 2009 8:19 AM

    If Brady’s not allowed to talk to other women, I don’t thik Suzy Kolber violates that…..

  6. Mad Campah says: Sep 23, 2009 8:23 AM

    Unlike Brady, Manning hasn’t spent every waking moment the last few years being chased around by paparazzi.

  7. realityonetwo says: Sep 23, 2009 8:24 AM

    You know Peyton was watching that sorry episode. Give him seven days to prepare, and you see the results.

  8. Kevin from Philly says: Sep 23, 2009 8:26 AM

    Was it like the scene from Patton:
    Manning: Don’t worry, Suzy – I shant kiss you.
    Suzy: Pity – I shaved extra close this morning in hopes of getting smacked by you!

    “So, in this regard, Manning gets it and Brady doesn’t.”
    So what, Brady gets the benefit of illegally-taped defensive signals and SB walk-thrus and Manning doesn’t.

  10. Devils Advocate says: Sep 23, 2009 8:28 AM

    you really gotta love this site. i think they should just drop the “Profootball Talk” name and just go with “The World According to Florio” or perhaps “As the Football Turns” because he really slurps up the soap opera BS.

  11. stanjam says: Sep 23, 2009 8:28 AM

    Brady had a horrible game (though he pulled out a win), and Manning had a great game. Manning wants to talk and Brady didn’t. No surprise there.
    Besides, when has Manning ever passed up on an opportunity to talk about himself whether it is to say how good he did, or to blame someone else for his bad performance. He wants people to know!

  12. benniehifive says: Sep 23, 2009 8:29 AM

    I hope you praise Lord Favre for giving a good interview when he plays on monday nights…

    Huge props for him down-playing the comparison to Johnny U.

    This is such a stupid post.
    “So, in this regard, Manning gets it and Brady doesn’t.”
    Are you kidding. I don’t think him snubbing the “fluff” reporter after the game is going to affect his
    “ability to generate a ton of money as spokesmen for various goods and services”.
    The guys got more money than any of us will ever see with more people knocking at his door to give him more if he wants. He just does not shill himself for a few extra bucks like Manning does .

  15. lololnpnp says: Sep 23, 2009 8:31 AM

    Oh man, I think Brady just got served by the Florinator!!! You might want to be a little nicer to these players as they probably read this site regularly. Having your character questioned by a hack lawyer, inept blogger could be devastating.

  16. DildoBaggins says: Sep 23, 2009 8:31 AM

    Florio seriously man, wtf is up with these putrid non-stories you keep putting up?
    This one is really bad…
    “Breaking News, Troy Polamalu doesn’t actually use Head and Shoulders but Ed Reed does!?!?!?!”
    The quality has taken a severe downturn here since you peacocked up Florio. Enough with this Today show bs man.
    OMG, did you totally see how Tom like just dissed Suzy, but then Peyton didn’t? OMG LOLZ Florio

    You are absolutely right. I was in shock to see how Brady teated Suzy….That total bullshit on Bradys part. Have the f@#$ decency to stop for one minute to talk to the lady. She has been very professional to all these @#$holes………Good for Manning..show some respect!

  20. Child_Please! says: Sep 23, 2009 8:44 AM

    “Apparently, Kolber hadn’t been informed by the Patriots that Brady wasn’t interested in participating in the post-game interview”.
    !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    Cindy Brady is a crybaby. When all goes well he is more than happy to talk, pose, smile, and be the douche he is. But when things dont go his way, he will pout, run away, and whine.
    Hmmm, I also just described the Patriot fanbase too.

  21. BernardPollardIsAnAss says: Sep 23, 2009 8:46 AM

    This is easily in the top three dumbest PFT posts of all time… and that is really saying something. The only one around here who doesn’t get it Florio is you. Have you re-read that post about the Vikings not moving their game to suit the Twins? It is one of the most forced and idiotic peices of “journalism” I have ever read. You are trying a little to hard to be clever. Maybe Manning could yell at her next time, like he does with his own teammates. Word on the street is that means he really cares deeply.

    How dare Brady walk out at the moment 99 percent of the audience turns the channel. Poor ESPN. Maybe if they covered sports instead of gossip Brady would talk to them.

  24. BasicInstinct says: Sep 23, 2009 8:54 AM

    I noticed he didn’t want to talk too. But he talked while he walked eventually….obviously didn’t think the team did well enough to win, and that having to pull the game out of his ass wasn’t what he had in mind.
    Probably pissed that they traded Seymour. Or that Cassel played so well last year. Didn’t want to hear any comparisons.

  25. FlourideSoldOut says: Sep 23, 2009 8:57 AM

    Does Anybody know of another NFL news blog that we can go to that isn’t run by a lawyer who sold his soul for the entertainment buck?
    ProFootBallTalk.com used to be really good, but the guy who ran it sold out to one of the broadcast networks. Now his posts are lame “he said she said” crap.
    The thing is the guy never played the game. We need insight from some one who played football not just watched it.

  26. Child_Please! says: Sep 23, 2009 8:58 AM

    Tom Brady:
    Disses Suzy Kolber
    Dumps pregnant girlfriend
    Orders henchmen to shoot at innocent photographers.
    “Wins” super Bowls with the aid of cheating
    Shomeless people

    Tom Brady is a camera hound when it benefits him, is overrated, pompous,arrogant,and just a total DOUCHE. period.

  27. billsfanaddict says: Sep 23, 2009 9:00 AM

    Brady is a classless OC-head
    i wasnt shocked at all when i saw brady do that
    hes such a yuppie tool, he probably breaks mirrors that make him look bad, which ((environmentalists tell me)) should deplete our planets deserts & beaches by 2030… IF he can manage to keep lookin like a douche in public till then.

  28. DonTerrelli says: Sep 23, 2009 9:00 AM

    I’ll bet you Brady’s deal was a bet with other teammates, to see if he could get her to jog alongside him.

  29. borg says: Sep 23, 2009 9:04 AM

    The article doesn’t mention if Manning attempted the Tennessee Tea Bag on Kolber

  30. favrecansuckit says: Sep 23, 2009 9:06 AM

    Seriously, it’s a non-issue, who cares?! Brady obviously wasn’t in any mood to deal with the same stupid questions reporters ask after every game, as if he would’ve provided any riviting answers or insight after that game. It’s like interviewing a fighter after he just got his ass whooped, pointless.

  31. Insomniac says: Sep 23, 2009 9:06 AM

    I think Brady does get it. He has said in the past that he is selective and limiting in his endorsements. In this case, it seems you’re reading too much into it. He didn’t want to do an interview, he told the PR staff but they didn’t tell Suzy in time. And you end up with that. In between him getting mad and saying he told them no interview and giving her a normal interview.

  32. PFTiswhatitis says: Sep 23, 2009 9:07 AM

    Get a clue Florio.
    1. Brady had just come off a frustrating defeat while Manning had just crushed the Phins. Manning was asked how he liked being compared to his idol while BRady was asked if he still had it.
    2. Fix the fahking LOGIN thing already.

  33. nosleN boB says: Sep 23, 2009 9:08 AM

    What is a conceded QB?

  34. gwinn1952 says: Sep 23, 2009 9:15 AM

    Brady is a product of his coach who opposing coaches are lucky if they get a millisecond handshake at mid field without eye contact. We try to teach sportsmanship to the young but some players and coaches act like asses. Who pays your salary and buys your jersey etc……what does it take to give some air time.

  35. Great Smoky says: Sep 23, 2009 9:16 AM

    I detest the on-field interviews, and always have. Do that stuff in the locker room, and only after the game please. I truly despise the interviews of coaches who are heading into halftime meetings. It is not journalism or even good TV, just awkward, meaningless sound bites.
    When other players buck the system they are defended, especially if they are fined. Brady did us all a favor by trying to avoid the on-field “exclusive.” He gives a finger to a big TV network, and he gets no feather in his cap for that?

  36. Krow says: Sep 23, 2009 9:17 AM

    Peyton has always been good on television. Mr. Bundchen not so much. But deep down I think he’s a well behaved little boy.

  37. BernardPollardIsAnAss says: Sep 23, 2009 9:18 AM

    “Manning wants to talk and Brady didn’t. No surprise there.”
    Well put. Manning has never met a camera he did not like. Sadly for him, and for the rest of us, his giant forehead hasn’t met a camera that doesn’t make him look like an uncircumcised penis.

  38. PFTiswhatitis says: Sep 23, 2009 9:21 AM

    So after saying he didnt want to do the interview he should stop and be cordial to her when she pursues him? She’s annoying as hell.

  39. Phyxsius says: Sep 23, 2009 9:21 AM

    This is just par for the course. Brady is known for being a sore loser and a poor sport. The only surprising thing is that the media doesn’t call him out for it.

  40. Fan_Of_ Four says: Sep 23, 2009 9:23 AM

    Why would any player want to talk to any member of the media ? You’re all idiots.

  41. TheWizard says: Sep 23, 2009 9:26 AM

    This is why people hate you reporters. On the one hand, you ask for an interview. Then, if anyone ever doesn’t do the interview, or doesn’t give full effort, for whatever reason, at any time, then the media turns on that person to make them look like a bad guy.
    Reporters are evil. You people suck.

  50. Richm2256 says: Sep 23, 2009 10:04 AM

    “television money pays for a big chunk of the players’ salaries, and television exposure has a lot to do with their ability to generate a ton of money as spokesmen for various goods and services.”
    How does talking to Suzy Q for twenty seconds and answering another inane version of “how do you feel right now, Tom?” do ANYTHING towards generating a ton of money as spokesmen for various goods and services?
    Come on Florio, that’s the dumbest thing you’ve said all week. I’m going to ascribe it to have to read the worst week of postings that PFT has even seen, from people as unbiased as the guy with the ID “pats suck, blow and cheat”.
    Now THERE’S a person with an open mind, right?
    By the way, for the posters who think of Brady as arrogant and “conceded”, Tom has a weekly Monday morning radio spot that he does on WEEI, win or lose. If any of you out of town whiners ever listened to him (and he NEVER misses a week, win or lose!), you’d hear a guy who tells you flat out that he sucked, and when he’s great he gives all the credit in the world to his O-line, his receivers, the coaching staff, the water boys, you name it.
    He’s actually a very humble guy, who fully knows he’s one lucky SOB. He’s not the kind of guy to deliberatly snub the Suzy Q’s of the world. To sing the praises of Peyton Manning for talking to a TV camera is akin to praising a dog for barking…
    Manning is a great QB, but he never met a microphone or a camera that he didn’t like. Can you say “media whore”?
    And yeah Mike, fix the damn “logout” problem; I’m tired of having to copy every single post in case I’m accidentally logged out. I thought you fired that damn gerbil?

  51. kramer says: Sep 23, 2009 10:10 AM

    It will be interesting to see how Mr. Bunchen deals with adversity.

    Apparently, its official: Florio is a part of the new establishment for media.
    We all know the basic rule of thumb: don’t criticize the media & don’t make them look bad.
    The media as a whole are a sensitive bunch! THEY ask the questions. The spotlight of criticism is on everyone but THEM!
    “Tom Brady is a jackass” is merely a smoke-screen for the fact that ESPN went live down-on the field (which has become more common in our age of twitter-style narcissm) BEFORE they scored the interview.
    Tom Brady was not the unprofessional one, ESPN was.
    If the players want to let emotion die down a bit before doing an interview, so be it. THEY are the stars seated at the table, you are the waiter that serves the information. You can take their order when they are good & ready.

  56. Joeh1804 says: Sep 23, 2009 10:49 AM

    I never seen so many people jealous of one man before. Tom Brady is a sore loser. He is a loser. He is whipped. He left his pregeant gf. Listen he has more money than all of you. He wife is 100 times better looking than yours. He has 3 superbowls. And is one if the top 3 quarterbacks in NFL history. Get over it. He didn’t want to do an interview he doesn’t have to. I don’t even understandvwhy this is a story.

  57. vikings rule says: Sep 23, 2009 10:54 AM

    you Tom Brady haters are crazy. i’m obviously a Vikes fan but Brady is without a doubt the greatest QB to ever live and the Patriots the greatest team. they didn’t cheat they were just better. and when this season is over if the Vikings don’t stop them they’ll win it again. GET OVER IT. and as for Eli’s brother i’ve heard persistent, reliable rumors that he plays for the other team (as in he’s GAY) and yes if it’s true there is something wrong with that. VIKINGS RULE

    Oh, sure, Manning gets it. Did he get all the times he threw his O-line under the bus after a loss. Or the time he yelled at his pro bowl center, telling him to do his F’in job.
    I understand why all you Brady bashers hate his guts so much. I mean, I hated the Yankees whenever the beat up on the Red Sox in the 90’s. But it did not change the fact that they were the best and never changed the results of the previous games. Same goes for Brady and the Pats. Brady has the rings and the records. And all you guys have are years of memories of Brady and the Pats whipping your teams. So deal with it.

  61. golongboyee says: Sep 23, 2009 11:37 AM

    Gee, yes…..Peyton Manning HATES to be on TV, as is obvious from his zillionth commercial he just completed filming. Do you think the ultimate media whore would give up a chance at an interview?
    …..all you Manning lovers and Brady haters will find anything to try and knock Brady off his pedestal….too bad it wont work……
    as far as Brady goes, you have no idea his motivations for running to the locker room…..maybe he had to take a shit! Who knows.
    just ask Manning’s team-mates who is the arrogant one……Brady’s team-mates love him……many of Manning’s cannot stand him!

  68. CaptainFantastik says: Sep 23, 2009 1:41 PM

    Those of you trying to lambast Manning for doing commercials and getting camera time are weak. Manning obviously has the talent and comfort in front of a camera to be funny and likable. Tom Brady does not posess this ability. Want proof? Tom Brady’s SNL appearance was painful to watch at best. Manning’s SNL appearance was freakin’ hilarious. You don’t like Manning on tv? Too bad, because he’s going to be doing NFL commentary, commercials, and various other tv appearances for many years after his playing career is done. So get used to it. It’s called talent.
    “HAAAHAAHAAH. We’re only going to score 17 points?! HAHAHA. Okay. HAHAHAAH”.
    A statement like that would never come out of Manning’s mouth. Brady is not only the biggest panty waist pussy in the NFL (next to Tony Romo)…..he’s also the most arrogant prick in the NFL (next to Brat Favre).

  69. CincyAllDaWay says: Sep 23, 2009 1:52 PM

    Brady’s a punk! He cry’s like a bitch when things don’t go his way. Suzy had better get used to being snubbed by him. He gonna have a lot of suck ass games this year!

  70. golongboyee says: Sep 23, 2009 2:34 PM

    that’s funny……talent? Sorry, hate to break the news to you but Manning has no talent in front of the camera. He is in front of the camera because he is Peyton Manning, NOT because he has talent.
    Just because people laugh AT Manning doesn’t mean he has talent……
    But, if you weren’t such a moron, you might understand this isn’t the point. The point is Manning is the most self-effacing, egomaniac on the planet who thinks the Colts IS him and that everyone around him is a pawn to get HIM what HE wants……and that is sad.
    Unfortunately for the Colts, they are stupid enough to buy into this as well which is why, year after year, the Colts have NO defense because all of the money goes to the offense side of the ball……folks…..it hasn’t worked……as displayed by the Colts 7-8 playoff record.

  71. hanjna78 says: Sep 23, 2009 5:21 PM

    Brady doesn’t get it? He owes us nothing except for quarterback play. Nothing. To infer that he owes us an interview, or owes the network that pays the bills an interview, is a convoluted half-truth. Let’s face it, the bigger ESPN has become, the more they have ruined the viewer’s experience with their innane interviews, halftime shows, graphics, and completely obscure “records” and statistical cross sections.
    The media outlets which cover the sport will never be bigger than the sport itself. Not close. Pro basketball is perilously teetering on that line, and it can be argued that the way a pro basketball game is refereed, packaged for viewership in both living room and arena, and advertised, that the line has been crossed.
    We should never make the mistake of assuming that athletes are personalities. It’s like interviewing a congressman after session and asking him to throw a couple innings of middle relief. Let’s allow them stick to their profession

  72. bian8 says: Sep 23, 2009 5:50 PM

    Im starting to think that golongboyee has a bit of a man crush on Brady after all of his Manning bashing. Was it the Stetson ads or his underwear modeling that got you so hott on Brady?

    The time spent writing an article about a non post game interview by Tom Brady should be used to take a look at the production of NFL as they are done today. The Colts recent game shows how little time there really is a a pro game due to constraints placed on them by the networks. The idiotic pre-game and post game interviews do not add to the viewing experience. Telling the audience another heartrendering story about a players second cousin who has (fill in the blank) disorder and this has given him the motivation through the emotion to win is horse bleep. Show me the game, not an up close shot of a guys wife, mother, father, girlfriend. I want to see the change of personal not the players sulking face. Broadcast the game not the phoney made for tv story. Lets watch football again not the ESPN soap opera.

    Let’s face it… Brady is learning how to be a douche bag from his jackass coach (Belicheat). Show some respect Tom to the people that pay you. At least Peyton gets it. Talk to the media, do the commercials and get paid. I hope the Patriots finish beind the Jets & Phins and then get a mike stuffed in their face at the end of the season to get an interview. The hoody is an asshole and looks like an ignorant moron that has no respect for the league or his fellow coaches.

    If Brady had beaten the Dolphins with less than 15 minutes TOP like Manning did on Monday, the ENTIRE ORGINAZATION up there in Bristol(BESPN) would STILL be hanging from his nutsack. Because it was Manning, you hear nothing about it, but that was one of the most amazing performances by ANY quarterback in the last 30 years. He WILLED the Colts to that win.
    The fact that some people still believe that Brady is better than Manning just BLOWS me away. Tom Brady is to Peyton Manning what The Monkees are to The Beatles.
    Oh and by the way, Brady IS a douchebag for treating Kolber that way.

    AmishGangsta………are you kidding me??????………were you watching the same game everyone else was………..Manning throws two simple crossing routes to his TD and he is a genius??? Give me a break………you are so in love with Manning you cannot see straight.
    Bottom line….
    Manning playoff record : 7-8, 1 SB
    Brady playoff record: 12-3, 3 SB
    no need to say any more………Manning is a modern day Dan Fouts who got lucky because his playoff defense played lights out one year……..otherwise, his playoff record would be 4-9

  79. bian8 says: Sep 24, 2009 4:39 PM

    Here he goes again. This is obviously Gisele or Teddy Bruschi. If your insinuating that the only reason Manning won a super bowl was because he defense was good for 4 games then i guess the only reason Brady has won three is because his defense has been good for a decade. Your an idiot for not recognizing the flaw in your arguments. Quit listening to Bill Simmons and actually watch a game.

  80. golongboyee says: Sep 24, 2009 5:38 PM

    …ah…….yes bian8 (aka moron)……that IS what I am saying……….can you dispute that????……..look at his numbers that year in the playoffs……….do I need to remind you????? He had more ints than touchdowns and his completion percentage was subpar……..he certainly didn’t carry the Colts on his back………what other reality are you trying to create???????
    ……and no………Brady actually PERFORMS in the playoffs when it counts…………Manning does not……..care to see their respective playoff records again????

  81. bian8 says: Sep 24, 2009 6:42 PM

    The playoff record is the same stupid argument that haters like you use all the time. Its a team sport not just a quarterback playing. Just like if the Patriots offensive line could have blocked against the Giants they would have won. If Peyton had a better defense all of those years he would have more championships. Just keep on hating a guy who does everything right and plays the game respectively. You might also want to hide the hard on you have for Brady.

  82. bian8 says: Sep 24, 2009 7:00 PM

    O and nice riff calling me a moron. Very ingenious.

  83. golongboyee says: Sep 25, 2009 1:44 PM

    to bian………….oh, i see. So, Manning IS responsible for ALL the regular season wins but has NO responsibility for all the playoff losses…….yeah, that make sense. And you wonder why the term MORON obviously applies.
    You need to get off you blind love for the guy and get a clue!

  84. golongboyee says: Sep 25, 2009 1:50 PM

    ..and what “Morons” like you fail to understand is………part of the reason for Manning’s success is based on the defense being typically subpar. All the money that COULD have gone to the defensive side of the ball goes to the offensive side, which, in turn, allows Manning to flourish because of all the weapons around him.
    Better defense = less weapons on offense = less productivity by Manning……

  85. bian8 says: Sep 25, 2009 4:29 PM

    Yeah you obviously know nothing about the colts since they pay Freeney Mathis Hayden Sanders and Jackson very good money so we do invest money in the defense there is just no production. Manning turns mediocre offensive players into decent players. Examples Dominic Rodes, Ben Utecht, James, and various other players who after having success with the colts went to other teams and didnt produce. So before you make dumbass arguments like these look into what your arguing. Maybe the system in NE is just set up for quarterbacks. Matt Cassel sure did awesome last year hows he doing in KC moron?

  86. bian8 says: Sep 25, 2009 5:06 PM

    O and did I never gave him full credit for all of the regular season wins. He was a big part of that but he isnt the whole team. And the jokes about having a crush on a quarterback were already used by me on you so real original about the blind love.

  87. golongboyee says: Sep 25, 2009 11:00 PM

    bian8………you are a total moron………..gee, I guess everyone on the Colts is average EXCEPT Manning……..LOL.
    I didn’t say the Colts paid NOBODY on the defense side of the ball. But, compared to other teams, they do not. That is a fact.
    Just becasue a few of the players you mentioned didn’t produce, doesn’t mean they weren’t good players…..bottom-line, EVERYONE realizes the Colts have more offensive talent (WR, offensive line, etc) than most teams…….again, another fact that cannot be desputed even by a totally football idiot such as yourself.
    Also, I wouldn’t call Marvin Harrison average either…….he was good BEFORE Manning got there…….so was M Faulk…..how many HOF players has Brady played with up until the 2007 year???????

  88. golongboyee says: Sep 25, 2009 11:03 PM

    bian (aka Idiot)………….ok, well I guess Manning isn’t that great than right. If it is a team game than the team had as much to do with all the wins he had during the regular season……..ok, i agree, guess he isn’t so great than………thanks for agreeing.
    So don’t act like Manning carries the team if that is the position you want to tke.

  89. bian8 says: Sep 26, 2009 12:34 PM

    Ive realized its not even worth arguing with you over this because you keep making the same stupid ass arguments. By the way all the question marks and periods make you seem like a twelve year old girl. Your riffs are lame. Ill let you get back to worshiping Tommy Terrific.

    Are YOU serious? You do realize that Manning was facing just as much pressure(blitzing) as TomTerrific was in the Jets game, right? Both the Jets and the Dolphins brought all out blitzes against Manning and Brady with the game on the line. The difference was that Manning made them pay while Timmy Brady was, once AGAIN, unable too. Super Bowl XLII comes to mind as yet another example of Tom wilting under pressure. Tom Brady is nothing more than a product of the Bahhhstuhn/BESPN hype machine and he will NEVER be HALF the quarterback Manning is.

  91. golongboyee says: Sep 27, 2009 9:47 PM

    AmishGangta……..LOL
    1)if you are comparing the Dolphins D to the Jets D, you truly are an idiot. There is no comparioson, Jets are better.
    2)If you are honestly trying to say Brady wilts under pressure you haven’t a leg to stand on with ANY of your arguements.
    Ask ANYONE………Brady has proven to perform better in the clutch and his record proves it…..
    I am not sure where you get your football education or what you are watching but you need to get a grip!

  92. golongboyee says: Sep 27, 2009 9:48 PM

    bian……yes, it isn’t worth arguement because you are wrong and know it………..closing your eyes and wishing something to be true doesn’t make it true……….sorry loser!

  93. bian8 says: Sep 28, 2009 8:47 AM

    ouch nice burn

  94. bian8 says: Sep 28, 2009 8:00 PM

    Golongboyee if your there criticize Mannings week three performance and tell us why Brady did so much better so we can make fun of you some more. And it was funny to see Brady almost cry every time he thought his team mates did something wrong. I might be mistaken but i think he yelled at a couple of his wide receivers on sunday. Yeah he is a way better teammate than Manning. His teammates must love him so much because he cries like a little bitch.

  95. golongboyee says: Oct 5, 2009 11:13 AM

    bian8…..you know absolutely nothing about football……Brady is far superior and you know it…..Manning is always the one crying and throwing his teammates under the bus….Brady certainly has taken his teammates to the promised land much better and more frequently…..unlike the convulsing epileptic one……Manning shakes so much I am surprised he can hold onto the ball……..LOL
