New Stats to Prove Ben Roethlisberger Is Better Than Peyton Manning.

SO...who is better, Peyton Manning or Ben Roethlisberger?
The 2009 NFL season has been over for less than a week, and I think I have already read 412 different articles debating this question. Colts fans are quick to throw stats such as regular season winning percentage in Steelers' faces, while Steeler Nation is quick to point to Manning's 9-9 playoff record, and 1-1 Super Bowl record.
Both sides have a great argument. Here are the stats that you will be able to find in just about every article. Out of fairness, we are only comparing the first six years of their careers.
Manning: 167 Tds.
Roethlisberger: 127 Tds.
Manning: 110 Ints.
Roethlisberger: 81 Ints.
Completion Percentage:
Manning: 62.90 %
Roethlisberger: 63.3%
Passer Rating:
Manning: 88.08
Roethlisberger: 91.7
Manning: 24,885 yards
Roethlisberger: 19,302 yards
