Regular season:
Ben      1189 comp 1905 att 62.4% 14974 yds 7.9 y/a 101 TD's 69 Ints 89.4 rating
Brady   1421 comp 2300 att 61.8% 16210 yds 7.0 y/a 109 TD's 56 Ints 88.6 rating
Peyton 1564 comp 2534 att 61.7% 18543 yds 7.3 y/a 125 TD's 92 Ints 85.3 rating

Post season:
Ben         8-2 2 Super Bowls 87.2 rating
Brady      9-0 3 Super Bowls 91.0 rating
Peyton    0-2 0 Super Bowls 69.9 rating

So, Ben is holding his own. Not as spectacular through this part of the career, not not as shabby as some might think.

Higher completion %, much higher YPA and the best QB rating.  What's not to like there?  Ben doesn't get his due but that should change now.

In terms of performance (especially playoff performance) those two are the best two QBs of all time.  Hard to make a decisive choice.

Where's the wins totals? Ben's got to have that in his factor, no?

Cliche' or not, the W is the most important thing there is.

Doesn't Manning have a few post season victories and 1 super bowl?

As for Ben, not too many "game managers" win super bowls, let alone 2.  speaking of Super Bowls, is there ANY QB with multiple super bowl wins NOT in the HOF?

Jim Plunkett (from Wikipedia) - He is the only retired quarterback to start, and win, two Super Bowls not in the Pro Football Hall of Fame in Canton, Ohio.

First 5 seasons(including Playoffs)
Ben-(59-22)
Brady-(57-14)
Manning-(42-19)

*Edit
Also, Ben now has 18 GW 4th quarter/OT drives since 2004. Most in the league. No idea how many Brady or Manning had in their first 5 years, but we know Ben has more than they do in the past 5.
