Brady Vs Peyton: This Never Gets Old
The best part of this rivalry is they come from such different backgrounds. You have Peyton, who is low key but has been hyped since high school. He was expected to be great and was chosen number one overall. He lived up to the hype and you have to cheer for him since so many before him couldn't handle it. Then you have Brady, who grew up in California and went to Michigan where he shared time with Drew Henson. He was chosen 199th overall and nobody expecting him to last in the league. He is now considered one of the best of all time and is married to a supermodel (sorry had to throw that one in there). So basically you have the live up to the immense hype and pressure story and the nobody believes in me I can prove them wrong story. No matter who you are you can compare you life and struggles to something in this rivalry.
Eyes will be glued to their screen to watch Denver take on New England on Sunday with hopes that this rivalry can take new shape in different colors. Manning-Brady is one reason why football is now the greatest sport in the world. They took the torch from the Marinos and Aikmans of the world and ran further than even they could have imagined. Now it is time to see this rivalry in its twilight years while we wait for the Aaron Rodgers and Matthew Staffords to hopefully put on the same kind of show we've become accustom to over the last twelve years.
