Let's talk about Eli

Before the play-offs started and we were talking about QBs, I asked who are the top five in the league.  We agree that Rodgers, Brees and Brady were clearly on the list.  Then the conversation drifted and the argument was made that a healthy Petyon Manning was in the list.  So as we were trying to come up with number five I said Eli Manning but I have a co-worker (who is a Chargers fan) that insisted it should be Philip Rivers. 

Now that the Super Bowl is over, there is no doubt that Eli is most definitely a top 5 QB.  His play-off record at away/neutral sites is 7-1.  His 4th quarter QB rating for the season is 110.  He is a cold-blooded killer when it comes to finishing games. 

Assuming he is healthy, Peyton is going to be playing catch-up and trying to match his little brother's second Super Bowl Ring.     It would be awesome if he could do it for team in the NFC East that is only a QB away from the competing.  If only there was a team with an owner that didn't mind spending money on veteran free agents. *cough* Washington Redskins *cough*

Two Manning bowls twice a year?  That is something everyone would like to see. 


  1. I used to think maybe Eli would be jealous of Peyton, but now I think I feel bad for the eldest brother Cooper.

  2. Cooper is fine. Eli is super fine and sporting my hardware than his brother. Hopefully, Peyton is fired up and finds his way back to a team this year.
