Even Bradshaw's parents (if alive) wouldn't agree that Terry is better than Peyton.

But they would agree that he's more successful at being a world champion of the United States. And everyone knows, it's better to be on the winning side than great.

Kinda. Yet not always

Would you rather be Dan Marino or Trent Dilfer?

Dilfer has and will always have the ring, but is kind of used as the posterboy for mediocrity (as I'm using him now). His name is kind of a slur.

Marino is respected hugely and much loved for his achievements. He's an all time great.

Taken to that extreme I'd rather have Marino's career, but in lesser cases you'd want the ring.

That world champion thing never sits well with me, but that is for another thread, 2 players from different eras with 1 having more rings than the other but I know which one I would rather have in my team and it isn't the Hulk Hogan lookalike.

Not so sure about the last bit really, not so great to have the ring when every man and his dog thinks your crap, think id rather be the man who fans think were one of the greats even if that means no superbowl ring.

Harsh

We all know about Mannings playoff failures and he should have won more superbowls but I think that criticism is too harsh
