Take your pick: Manning or Brady in 2009?

Posted by ESPN.com's Tim Graham

Who will have the bigger season: Tom Brady or Peyton Manning?

ESPN commentators Mike Golic and Mark Schlereth addressed the question on the latest episode of "NFL Live."

I was surprised both so quickly chose Brady without giving Manning a second of consideration.

Schlereth noted Brady has Randy Moss to throw at. Golic mentioned Brady will return with something to prove.

This is an AFC East blog, so there probably won't be as many Manning fans as Brady fans joining in the discussion below. But to be fair, Brady is coming off reconstructive knee surgery and Manning did throw for 4,000 yards and 27 touchdowns last year.

What say you?

BLOGGER'S NOTE: After reading heisthejuan's astute note in the comments section, I recast a line from above: When I wrote there would be overwhelming support for Brady here, I was thinking that Manning fans probably don't check out this blog too often. I was remiss in failing to consider all the non-Patriot fans who stop by.
