Denver Broncos CB Aqib Talib certainly isn’t shy about giving his thoughts on the already legendary argument of who’s the better quarterback, Peyton Manning or Tom Brady, even if it means explaining his stance to you by using one of the most popular rap battles of all time as an example.
Following him being named to the NFL Network’s Top 100 list for 2014 at no. 79 overall, he was asked the infamous question. Given the fact that he’s going from playing with Brady last year to Manning this year, it’s a valid question to ask.
Well initially Talib stated that while, Brady was still his friend, he believes that Manning is the better of the two.
Later he took things a step further, though, by kind of hinting that they actually might both be on the same level, it’s just more of a personal preference between the two.
To get this point across, he just came right out and compared the Brady-Manning feud to Tupac Shakur and Biggie Smalls from the mid-90s.
Underrated part of Talib on Brady/Manning: “Just like Biggie and Pac, it’ll never be settled. Just gotta pick your side and vibe with it.”

I mean, technically, while it’s a hilarious comparison to use, he’s not necessarily wrong when you think about it. Both are considered the two best at what they do, at the exact same time, with everyone else below them.
