While Peyton Manning is sitting on his couch this Sunday, his little brother Eli with his New York (football) Giants will be battling the New England Patriots in Super Bowl XLVI.
Here are five reasons why Eli is better….
Let’s be real – Peyton won’t actually be sitting on his couch, but he will rather be cheering for his kid brother to win a second Lombardi Trophy against fellow elite quarterback Thomas Edward Patrick “Tom” Brady, Jr.
5: Football is all about winning.
In thirteen seasons, Peyton reached two Super Bowls and won one of those. The victorious campaign came against the Rex Grossman led Chicago Bears, and his losing effort came against Drew Breese and the New Orleans Saints.
On the other hand, Eli’s one and only attempt came against the greatest quarterback of all time, Tom Brady. If you don’t count the upcoming game, Eli earned the more difficult victory of all the Manning Brothers’ Super Bowls.
Not to mention that Eli has accomplished this feat in five fewer seasons than his elder bro.
