March 7th, 2016 I wrote: "How fitting to be reading this book while the golden boy just announced his retirement."

I'm not sure how the title of this book fits the information in it. I think it's a marketing gimmick more than anything. Of course I picked up the book because I wanted to learn about the behind-the-scenes- "APPARENT" rivalry by arguably two of the best QBs of our time. But what did I get? the background stories of the QB's from their college days, to draft, to memorable games. It was interesting to learn, but there was precious few information about this so-called 'rivalry'. its the typical competitive stuff. Like come on, most football players are competitive so to read information that TM and PM are competitive and want to keep or break records is nothing new. Too often fans are falling for the crafty acts of sports journalists that consistently manufacture sensational storylines. Okay can I start on the choppy writing presentation? at many points during this book I asked myself, why Is Gary Myers writing books? his presentation is choppy and he often drifts from one idea to the next and then back again. Overall, a so-so book if you are into football and you want a little bit of context.

pg, 12 "Brady stirs up more negative feelings than Manning. Why? he is resented for his tremendous success, his good looks, and his supermodel wife-and his connection to Bill Belichick." Oh please Gary Myers you left out scandal.
