Eli Manning or Tom Brady; Who Has More to Gain?

February 2, 2012 at 12:13 am 2 comments

Eli Manning this year has answered the lingering question entering this season, backing up the statement that he is indeed an elite quarterback. This should be a non-issue, even though the New York Media continues to point out his “eliteness” every chance they get. A second Super Bowl win, this time with the offense completely on his shoulders, would be monumental for Eli’s career. I am not saying that it would elevate him to Peyton’s level, but this status would surely have him surpass Phil Simms as the Giants all time best QB. Quite frankly, it may make him the best NFC East quarterback since Roger Staubach. Eli has a penchant for coming up big in the biggest spots. He has finally become the best quarterback to come out of the 2004 draft class, surpassing Phillip Rivers, and winning this Super Bowl would only help him reach even greater heights. (It should be noted that I think Big Ben is not only a terrible human being, but vastly overrated).

Tom Brady has already won three super bowls. He has come up big in the biggest spots throughout his career, and in my opinion, is 2nd only to Peyton Manning on the all time quarterback list. Although Brady has not won a championship in several years, he has won two MVP’s, and a statistical juggernaut during this time. Winning or losing this upcoming spectacle, will not in any way alter Brady’s legacy. This being said, I am certain that he would love to join the “4 Super Bowl Club” with the likes of his childhood idol, Joe Montana.

Eli Manning is knocking at the door of immortality, while Brady has been living on the other side of it for quite some time. In short, neither of these quarterbacks will be harmed by a loss here, but Eli has far more to gain.

    Big Ben is vastly overrated? I don’t know about that. His quality as a human being is pretty much in the middle as far as NFL types are concerned. After all, the NFL has had the likes of Rae Carruth, Ray Lewis and Donte Stallworth. By comaprison, Ben’s offenses are scummy, but pretty much on par with Kobe Bryant. And everybody loves him. As for talent, for my money, he’s the best QB out of the ’04 draft, but Eli is making a case for that title. I think we can agree that out of that class, Philip Rivers is locked in 3rd place.

      I have to respectfully disagree with you about Ben. Carruth was the absolute bottom of the barrel though. DOnte Stallworth did a terrible thing, but I completely believe the allegations about Bens case. He is a far worse human being than Stallworth.
