    Broncos HC Vic Fangio with interesting comments about Archie Manning and Terry Bradshaw

    Where former Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback Terry Bradshaw falls in the pantheon of NFL quarterbacks has always been up for debate. Despite winning four Super Bowls, he is almost never mentioned among the top four of five greatest quarterbacks of all time.

    Another quarterback of the same era who didnít see the individual success Bradshaw did was Archie Manning. When Manning took in a Denver Broncos practice last week, head coach Vic Fangio talked about Manning and Bradshaw and had some strong words about the comparison.

    ďI always said if he was with the Pittsburgh Steelers back when he played instead of [Terry] Bradshaw (if him and Bradshaw switched spots), Archie would have had all those Super Bowl rings and Bradshaw would have had to go through the agony of playing with the Saints in the í70s,Ē Fangio said.

    Itís an interesting debate and it has plenty of merits. Bradshaw was surrounded by Hall of Famers on both sides of the football. Manning had very little talent around him and the Saints were a joke in the league.

    What do you think? Would the Steelers have still won four Super Bowls if Manning had been the quarterback instead of Bradshaw?

    LOL. You could say the same about Roger Staubach as well if you switch him and Manning. You could also say the same thing about Barry Sanders and Emmitt Smith as well.

    What a stupid comparison.

    Slow news day? Are we really discussing Vic Fangio opinion on time travel hypotheticals?

    If I got in my DeLorean and went back in time I could tell the Steelers to draft Dan Marino, but I cant.....so who cares?

    Well, Bert Flaccid replacing Case Keenum will produce the same results as last year.

    Would Archie Manning have led 6 4th quarter TD drives in 4 Super Bowls?

    Would Booker T have been the five-time... five-time, five-time, five-time, five-time WCW champion if the Rock was employed by the WCW instead of the WWE?

    After reading the original article with the Fazio quotes, apparently he was sucking up to Archie after Archie & Peyton attended Broncos practice last week. Fazio also said Archie might be the best QB in the Manning family.

    More off season chatter to kill time until training camp in July

    The bigger the game, the better Bradshaw seemed to play. Would Archie Manning have reacted the same way in games where most of the country was watching?

    After all, Peyton sure choked often enough in big game situations, and he was a better QB than both of them. Being nicknamed "Mr. October" is only a good thing in MLB...

    To his credit, isn't Peyton like 3-1 against Tom Brady in AFC Championship games? That definitely counts for a big stage, against an arguably top 3 all-time QB

    I had an ex gf who was a big time patriots fan, and she had a pure hatred for peyton manning. I asked her why, and she said when it mattered most, peyton usually had brady's number

    Peyton won his last 3 AFC Championship games against Brady.

    Sounds like Vic Fangio is having a lemon party with Archie Manning.

    Bradshaw wants to know what an emon is.

    Archie Manning was asked about Peyton and "Omaha". Archie explained it meant many different things depending on the opponent, defensive alignment, play called, field position, etc. Archie was then asked if there was a pre-snap word or phrase that he used the way Peyton uses "Omaha". Archie said, "BLOCK! DAMN YOU! BLOCK!".

    Archie was very talented. But he was on some really bad teams when his skills were at their best. By the time the Saints put together a half decent roster Archie's knee's and shoulder were shot. It's a shame for him because I think he could have been a lot more productive in a better setting.

    That said there's nothing he did in his NFL career to suggest he would have been Bradshaw's equal. Bradshaw's last 3 (full) seasons were on some fairly mediocre teams. And his stats those years (80-83) were far greater than any season Manning ever produced.
