There are those that believe Peyton Manning will go down in history as the best quarterback of all time. That would be like saying Dan Marino is a better Quarterback than Joe Montana or John Elway.
Eli Manning may never be considered the best quarterback of all time, but he is the best Manning to play in the NFL and has the hardware to prove. With a second Super Bowl victory over the New England Patriots, Eli Manning has entered his name in the conversation of the best quarterbacks currently playing.
Filling up stat sheets is what gets the average fan to say a player is great or not. However; history looks at performance. In the game of professional football performance is ultimately measured by Super Bowl victories. In families, sibling rivalries are measured in championships.
As happy as Eli Manning and the New York Giants are for beating the New England Patriots in Super Bowl XLVI with as score of 21-17, you know big brother Peyton is dying inside. Of course he’s happy that his younger brother won but as a competitor an older siblings does everything they can to keep that upper hand. Trust me when I tell you, I’m the oldest of four boys and I work tirelessly to keep my younger brothers from having that opportunity to say that beat me in anything.
Eli Manning has won the Super Bowl twice, but I can almost promise you he is more proud of the position he holds over big brother Peyton now. It’s just the way siblings are.
