Does Peyton Manning play sissy football?

Did you see him flop like a fish against the Texans yesterday? Manning has spent his entire career avoiding contact at all costs. Brett Favre he is NOT!

It would be a travesty if he ever broke Favre's record for consecutive games with the way he has played coupled with these new protection rules.

Do you you agree?

Update:

Pitbull-

You must have only been watching football for about 5 years. In the mid- 90's, Favre played QB at a level we have never seen beore, OR SINCE!

    I agree that he's not as tough as Favre, That being said, he is probaby the greatest thinking quarterback I've ever seen as far as reading defenses. Smart quarterbacks also try to avoid contact if they want to have a longer career. Dan Marino did and he played about as long as Favre. Favre is an old school exception when it comes to toughness and is having a great season throwing few interceptions and leading the Vikings to a great season. Could it be that they will meet in the Super Bowl?

    WTF??? Don't compare Favre to P. Manning.

    Manning is the highest Rate QB to ever play the game and he WILL break every single Favre record barring injury

    Favre is good, but not as good as P. Manning, tom brady, steve young, joe montana

    The only reason Favre has broken those records is because he's so old

    Don't forget he has the NFL record for most interceptions

    IMO P. Manning is the best QB to ever play the game. He has basically carried the Colts offense by himself since 1998

    First off id like to agree with Eric, next id like to disagree with you, he is very good at getting the ball off and is just aware of defensive players, unlike other QBs who never even see the sack coming, its not a shame, Peyton, in the long run will be a much better QB than Favre

    The only Favre record that he won't come close to is the career interception record. No mortal man will ever break that record.

    Manning has never been addicted to vicadin during his career like Favre either.

    Get used to the fact that Manning will break all of Favre's relevant records as he is the better quarterback.

    Is this Luke?

    Favre is good. I'll give you that. Peyton is just as good though. To be a good QB, you don't have to take hits. You can try and avoid them too.

    I agree with Lee and Eric M. And Peyton might not get sacked a lot but that is only because the colts have a great defense.

    Peyton Manning is probably the best QB playing today & if he did break Favre's record, so be it & records are meant to be broken but nobody wants to break one record Favre has & that is the pass interceptions thrown record. Both are great QB's

    You're too young to have seen his father play. He spent a career taking three steps of a five-step drop and getting hit. He had enough orthopedic hardware in him that we used to call him Artificial Archie. No, Peyton isn't Brett, and he shouldn't be.

    Your boy is taking HGH. GUARANTEED!

    Drew Brees is the best QB in the league today. Followed closely by Peyton Manning.

    Source(s): And as far as Brady; not many QBs have their own special little penalty named after them.
