That would be tough. Jerry Rice vs Walter Peyton/Jim Brown. I would take the running back. AP carried the team to the playoffs all by himself. Megatron had the most yards ever, and his team didn't even get that far.
Good points. Tomlinson or Faulk in their prime would be good choices too as they were such a ridiculous double threat in rushing and receiving as well as decent blockers.
Switch Peyton and Brady (Brady goes to Colts, Manning to Pats), and the Pats have like 5 Superbowls and the Colts have none.
Just look at the Patriots home record over the last 10 years.
What's Brady's record vs Payton
Payton always had better weapons. Could you imagine Brady in his prime with edgerin James, Dallas Clark, Reggie Wayne ect.
As much as I hate Brady, he was near perfect in 2007 & if tyree doesn't make he most ridiculous catch in football history & Welker catches that ball vs Giants he's got 2 more Superbowls.
He did his job in both of those losses.
