John Clayton takes an early look at Super Bowl XLIV - ESPN

5. Which quarterback has an edge?

You'd have to figure it's Manning. More and more, Manning continues to grow as one of the greatest quarterbacks in history. Manning is now 9-8 in the playoffs and is headed to his second Super Bowl. Brees is going to his first Super Bowl, but has won only three playoff games (in five attempts).

There is a learning curve for quarterbacks who advance to a Super Bowl, and Brees hasn't encountered the final step yet. First of all, the football itself is different in the Super Bowl than it is during the regular season and playoffs. The ball has more paint on it, which makes it harder to handle. Manning has been through a Super Bowl and has won one. He understands. Brees won't know what to expect until the game starts, and if it's humid, grasping the football might be even harder. Brees doesn't have hands as big as Manning's and might have some difficulty. Even in the NFC Championship Game, Brees wasn't his usual self throwing the football. Some of his passes were wobbly, and hard for receivers to catch. The edge might be slight, but it would favor Manning and the Colts.
