  • Merril Hodge said if Giants win the sb Eli is better than Peyton.

    As much as i love Eli and am a die hard giants fan, that comment is so false.

    Peyton may be one of the best qbs ever to live, or top 3 of all time.

    Not saying Eli will never get there, i think he will be up their by the end of his career and maybe better with Peyton which is a HuGE acomplishment, but he has a long ways to go..

    BS. They are brothers...how much better can Peyton realistically be?

    Who you play for...who is around you...who is your coach...who is your GM...who is your owner...where do you play?

    So many variables it is impossible for anyone to say.

      Another useless statement by a ESPN employee.

        Can't they be different flavors of "really good"?

          You do realize Eli has a better passer rating and win percentage in the post season than Peyton right?

          If the Gmen win the Superbowl this year, he'll also have more SB wins.

          I'd say that puts him in the same conversation as Peyton and statistically (team wise) better.

          Both guide their offenses amazingly well ... Peyton is more prolific (which is why he'll always be considered better).

            Merril Hodge said Eli Manning was a TOP 15 quarterback at the begining of THIS SEASON.

            We're all just going to have to come to grips with the fact that the people you are letting form your opinion for you don't actually know what they are talking about. If you allow them to tell you what to do you intern will not know what you are talking about.

            Do your own analysis, form your own opinion.

            Also when Eli wins his second SB in a couple weeks he'll be more prosperous than big brother. Better is anyone's guess but Eli already has contributed alot more lor to world of football than big brother. I'd argue Elis SB win over the underfeated Pats and Tom Brady is greater then Big Brothers win over Rex Grossman.

            Burier: Yes.

              Eli's had a better team and coaches around him than Peyton ever had. And for that, I'm thankful.

              Now let's finish.

                No he won't. The Bspn goaline will move back a few yards after we win. It always does.

                  It's a toss up really.

                  I mean, who's to say Peyton wouldn't have done a better job here than Eli has. The Colts live and die by Peyton's performance as evidenced by their past season.

                  All I know is that I'm not willing to find out...

                      how bout we say this.
                      Eli and Peyton are both un fn believable.
                      The manning brothers will tear anyone up.

                        Eli is great, amazing and one tough SOB, but even with a 2nd SB he's not better than Peyton.

                        SBs' are a good measuring stick for QB worth, but it's isn't the only one.

                        Nothing's wrong with that though, you don't see anyone talking about Terry Bradshaw being better than John Elway just b/c he won more SBs'.

                        Hodge is a fool.
                        All Hail The New York Giants!!

                          see i hate that, this is not Eli vs. Peyton ... this is Eli vs. Tom, TC vs. Bill, Cruz vs. Welker, Nicks vs. Gronk, our pass rush vs. their o-line



                          this Super Bowl should be about Eli and not his brother ... Hodge is just trying to stir it up with a back handed compliment

                            Peyton is a better overall QB but Eli is more clutch. If you needed to win a big playoff game, you would take Eli. Not being as good as Peyton does not mean that Eli is not great on his own.

                              Eli handles criticism and pressure much better than Peyton. Other than that Peyton had more of an impact throughout his entire career whereas Eli got better with time.
