Peyton vs Brady

I recently figured out the real difference between Peyton Maning and Tom Brady.

Peyton is a perfectionist who wants to be able to play the perfect game. So, when it comes down to the playoffs, it’s just like any other game to him – he wants to play the best he can. In contrast, Tom Brady HATES losing, just like his coach. I think this provides a more meaningful emotional lift in the big games for Brady (and Belichek). I think that it also explains why people don’t like Brady as much – his win-at-all-cost attitude is rather off-putting. (Shout out to Judy Batista of the NFL Network who led me to this conclusion).
