[quote]So if you were starting a franchise in the NFL, you would rather have Eli Manning, Ben Rothlisburger, and Tom Brady than Peyton Manning?[/quote]
Not talking about team postseason success. Individually, Peyton Manning is a better playoff QB than all those except maybe Brady, even though he ...

[quote]I don't even see how this is a debate[/quote]
Maybe because Bumgarner has been masterful in the playoffs since his ROOKIE YEAR and Kershaw sucks donkey nuts in the playoffs.
Not sure why mlb pitchers aren't judged based on postseason play like NFL QBs are...
