Compared to the average QB, yes, Peyton is an achiever. But compared to the all time greats?

He's still right there in the converstation

How many all time greats took their teams to the playoffs for 13 seasons and counting?

He also made 3 SB appearances, which isn't a poor number - including efforts with two different clubs which is exceedingly difficult

He is, but not #1 all time.

I didn't say he was lost in the crowd of mediocre players. But with Joe Montana, John Elway, Steve Young, Troy Aikman, to name a few? By the way, what ARE the playoff percentages of the greats? Is that figure available anywhere? Last I heard, Peyton was .500 in playoffs. Lots of playoff games, win some, lose some.

Bleacher Report has a list of best postseason percentages. John Elway has a much better postseason record than Peyton. Bart Starr had a 90% record in postseason! Peyton is lower in postseason than the 16 quarterbacks they listed. Tom Brady also has a much higher percentage among active QBs. I always forget Jim Plunkett. He was a good postseason QB.

Aikman & Young definitely don't belong in the same conversation

Elway lost his first 3 SBs and carried much of the same tag - but getting to 5 of them is really impressive and he was 14-7 and did win 2

Another note about Elway is he played 16 years and went to the playoffs 9 times

I can't give him any extra credit because he didn't make it there

Peyton ranks 14th among active quarterbacks in postseason winning percentage.
