Manning Vs Brady

Some say Peyton Manning is the greatest QB ever, others say Tom Brady is. Some say John Elway, or Joe Montana are. But everybody argues who is better; Manning, or Brady? Here is my case, Brady has won 3 Super Bowls, Manning has won 1. In addition, Tom has been good with no-name receivers, Peyton has had Marvin Harrison and Reggie Wayne his whole career. Take a look back at Super Bowl XXXIX, when the Patriots beat the Eagles. Back in 2005 Brady's best wide out was Deion Branch. Deion has since left the Patriots for Seattle, where he has done a total of: NOTHING. You could argue to me "What about Randy Moss, and Wes Welker?" My answer, did you know who Wes Welker was before he joined the Pats? Do you also remember how Randy Moss was doing with the Raiders before he joined New England? Tom Brady makes good receivers great, and he makes great receivers historic (e.g. Rand Moss' record 23 TD catch season). One could also say the same theory with Manning, so I've come up with a statistical gadget to prove Brady is the better quarterback. This is how it works, I find the ratio of their Touchdowns to Interceptions. That makes up a third of their final score. The ratio of Wins to Losses makes up another third of the final score. Lastly, the ratio of times being sacked, to rushing yards. Here's their scores: [Image is enlargeable, click on it] As you can see from the chart, Brady's final score is 8.13, while Mannings is 7.44. Just my thoughts, what do you think?
