I just want to start out by saying that we are on the same side, but I disagree with a couple of your points.
First, I don't believe that the Steelers run defense is better than the Eagles. Once Jeremiah Trotter became the starter at middle linebacker, the Eagles run defense was as good as any other in the league.
Second, I believe that you are not giving Tom Brady enough credit. I think he makes the system work, not the other way around. He was the 9th ranked QB in the league this year.
Personally, I would not take Peyton Manning over Tom Brady, unless my team played in a dome. Talk about a guy that is a product of the system/weapons/dome. I'll take Brady and his 3 Super Bowl rings over Manning's inflated numbers due to half of his games being played in perfect conditions and zero Super Bowl appearances.
On the other hand, I really like your comparison of the Pats and the Devils (although I think you are slighting Scott Stevens, who is a future HOFer).
