I'm not so sure about Manning for a couple reasons, one the Broncos made the playoffs the year before so simply pumping out a better record isn't anything special..
second, manning never really had any bad play prior to his hiatus so he didn't really make a comeback, a comeback is when you get pounded for a season or two, get injured, benched or whatever then come back screamin for vengeance winning a title, pretty much what Jimmy Plunkett did, hit rock bottom then bounced back..
to me thats what a come back is, rock bottom then making it big.. Manning just returned after healing from an injury and began where he left off..
players coming back off injuries really isn't a comeback unless the injury was extremely doubtful or somehow debilitating, both players healed 100% so?
but I know how the league is they want big name players involved with every move in the NFL.. so it will prolly be whichever player goes the deepest in the playoffs?
who knows though all that stuff is popularity among coaches and owners and we already know there are a lot of goofy coaches and owners out there... Jerry Jones, lol
