FOXBOROUGH, Mass. -- Whenever the Patriots play the Colts, the discussion inevitably turns to the matchup between the quarterbacks -- Tom Brady and Peyton Manning.
Belichick was asked if he understands, and has an appreciation for, how passionate the argument can get when people are debating which quarterback is better.
"They're both really good, so I'll leave that to you and the experts," Belichick responded.
There was a long pause as no reporter jumped in to ask a follow-up question, so Belichick added on to his answer.
"Look, I have a lot of respect for Peyton Manning. He's a tremendous quarterback, but there's no quarterback I'd rather have than Tom Brady," Belichick said.
