The Denver Broncos defeated the New England Patriots to advance to the Super Bowl. While Manning has praised Patriots head coach Bill Belichick before, Belichick praised Manning while explaining why he is so great at what he does.
“Manning does a great job,” Belichick said, via Pro Football Talk. “Depending on how you’re playing him then he’s going to attack you based on what you’re doing. If you do certain things he’s going to do certain things. If you do other things he’s going to do other things. He’s going to run plays that are good plays against what you’re doing. Runs, passes, schemes, whatever. That’s what makes him a great, great, great quarterback. He’s very, very good at that. He does an excellent job of — particularly in the passing game but he did it in the running game yesterday too — of getting his team in a good play. That doesn’t happen every play, it’s not like he changes every play, I’m not saying that, but situationally, red area, third down, he sees a new look that he thinks he can take advantage of, there’s nobody better at that than he is.”
