Indianapolis Star columnist Bob Kravitz appeared on the Dennis & Callahan show Thursday morning to talk about Sunday's Patriots-Colts game.
Kravitz picked the Patriots to win the game, and he said he gives the nod to Tom Brady in a career comparison to Peyton Manning.
"I've always picked Brady. I have this argument all the time. ... The stats are virtually the same over the years. I think Tom has done more with less, with fewer offensive weapons, and it's hard to ignore three Super Bowls."
Kravitz also had a different spin on the Manning-Brady rivalry: "I think in reality it's more of Peyton vs. Belichick."
Kravitz also discussed Jim Caldwell, who is in his first year as Colts coach after being promoted from assisting Tony Dungy.
"I think right now that he is doing a better job than Tony Dungy has ever done," Kravitz said. "If you look at the two areas where the Colts have improved the most, special teams and defense, those are the two areas where Caldwell came in and said, 'Look, we've got to make changes in our coaching staff.' ... Even though [Dungy and Caldwell] are very similar as far as the way they operate and the way they do things ... he has put his stamp on the organization. I'm very impressed."
