Tom Brady and Peyton Manning first played each other in 2001. No one then knew that it would become one of the greatest of all sports rivalries.

Brady ended up going 11-6 against Manning, who retired after the 2015 season, but three of Manning’s wins came in the AFC Championship Game. The two met four times in title games.

Five years after he retires, Brady will get his gold jacket and rightful place in Canton. Manning gets all that this weekend.

Brady will attend Manning’s enshrinement ceremony into the Pro Football Hall of Fame on Sunday, flying to Canton, Ohio, on the Bucs’ day off from training camp, Rick Stroud of the Tampa Bay Times reports. The Class of 2021 also includes former Buccaneers and Broncos safety John Lynch, now the General Manager of the 49ers.

Bucs head coach Bruce Arians, Manning’s first quarterbacks coach with the Colts, and assistant Clyde Christensen, who coached receivers (2002-08) and was offensive coordinator (2009-11) and quarterbacks coach (2012-15) for Indianapolis, and Tom Moore, the Bucs offensive consultant and longtime Colts offensive coordinator, also are attending the enshrinement in Canton, according to Stroud.

  1. Have to love when the greats go and support one another. Loved Manning’s game. Too bad injuries did him in.

  2. So glad he’s going for Manning’s induction. If he had a Michigan team mate being inducted- say, maybe like Charles Woodson, I’d bet he’d attend that as well. C’mon Man!

  3. Of course Brady won’t pass up any chance to upstage Manning.
    Manning is getting his jacket & bust, while everyone is going to want to talk to Tom.

  4. Peyton is the GOAT QB who didn’t cheat. He was the first to win multiple super bowls on different teams. He did it in two different offenses and under different coordinators. Well done to Eli’s brother.

  5. Yeah, I’m sure Peyton takes exception to Brady showing up for his HOF induction. Good grief…

    Remember the time Brady tried to take out Ed Reed in the 2012 AFCCG when he slid to the ground?

  7. Is there any truth to the rumor that Ty Law is going to intercept the yellow jacket as its being handed to Manning?

  8. Peyton is the GOAT QB who didn’t cheat. He was the first to win multiple super bowls on different teams. He did it in two different offenses and under different coordinators. Well done to Eli’s brother.

    Well, he did cheat but he gets a pass. HGH and piped in crowd noise, but i know you like to be the arbiter of what constitutes cheating.

    Second, yes he was the first the win a SB with two different teams but it took him 4 years to do it. Brady did it in one. Plus Manning was dragged to the SB with his defense, missed 8 games that season due to injury, and threw more INTs than TDs that year. Other than that, yea he is awesome.

  9. Peyton was the first to win a SB with 2 different teams but Brady was the one who perfected it as he was the 1st to win a SB mvp for 2 different teams.

    Peyton was coming back from 4 neck surgeries, Brady was not, so Manning was more impressive

  11. Brady took much better care of his body so he didn’t need multiple surgeries on his neck. That is more impressive.
