Why couldn't he wait until Monday to release his doctors assessment that he can play. Answering some reporters questions I can understand, but Irsay basically said the Colts were moving on last week. So now this breaking news about his being able to play just detracts from Eli and the Giants. Maybe it's not that, maybe he just desperately wants to remain a Colt despite the dindling odds. Where ever he ends up he will be a beast and Irsay will regret his decision. I don't want him in New York though, this is Eli's town.

I would love to see a Eli's Giants vs Peyton's Jets in the 2014 Super Bowl in NJ.

I can't blame Peyton for telling people his health business because he wants to tell everyone that he is healthy and ready to play football. It is still football season and everybody is constantly asking him in the Indianapolis Super Bowl media.

Yes, he is totally being a media ***** this week, as if he is jealous of the younger brother taking over the spotlight - and perhaps taking the family lead in Super Bowl victories. First of all, I don't remember any local star in the past being some sort of ambassador for the city.

But second of all, and IMHO most gallingly (and despite what Eli says), was the sit down interview he gave to ESPN this week. If ESPN caught him on the street and asked a quick question, that would be one thing. For him to give an hour long, pre arranged, sit down interview with Trey Wingo was hogging the spotlight.

<font size="4">Well he better enjoy the next 72 hours because Eli is going to cut through the Pats D like a laser to get that second ring that big bro don't have. I feel kinda sorry for anybody between Eli and that place of status in the Manning family.</font>

I was thinking sort of the same thing.

Well I guess he went against what he said last week that the only 2 QBs names that should be heard this week is Eli and Tom because this week is about them

I'm sure he has a lot of reasons for what he's doing. I'm also sure that upstaging his brother is not one of them.

If Eli were a girl, he'd be spending this week saying "Well, all week at the Superbowl I hear how great Peyton is at this or how wonderful Peyton did that! Peyton, Peyton, Peyton!"

It's annoying, but given Eli's personality, I doubt he even really cares that some of the media focus is off of him.

I actually thnk both Tom and Eli probably like the attention being off them a little. But that doesn't change my opinion that Peyton is trying to horn in on the attention.

No Peyton is trying to motivate his little brother to get the attention back by winning

Who knows maybe Peyton Manning is just trying disract some of the attention away from Eli Manning and NY Giants. He may actually be doing him a favor.

I bELIeve.
