THE QUESTION

Peyton or Eli Pick Your Manning

They each have a Super Bowl ring and boatload of talent, but which Manning brother would you take on your team?

Sammy Diaz :

It used to be Peyton but these days Eli is the top Manning. And not just because the Giants are 4-0 and Indy isn't. Peyton got injured and is still recovering. Eli is riding the Super Bowl high. He has never played so well. You buy a stock when it is going up not when it is going down.

Donald :

Eli has had a great year but he is no where near Peyton yet. I think Peyton is the best QB of this era even better than Brady.

Eli is for now :

Peyton has carried his team for so long , I think it is wearing on him physically... As long as the pass protection stays strong, I think Eli will go back to the Super Bowl before Peyton...

Mr. January :

Peyton can come back in the regular season but after what Eli led his team through last February my money's on him. Giants have less talent than the colts do but who ends up winning? Sure he's not as pretty but he gets the job done.

Take Eli, on fantasy and in reality.

Steve :

Peyton's true colors are finally showing. He's a petulant monomaniac who loves to take credit for the good and point fingers when it all goes bad. Indy is going down this year -- hard. Peyton just does not like to take a hit, and he'll be taking plenty.

As far as Eli goes, let's see him play against a real NFL team before we carve him out a spot on Mount Rushmore. My grandmother could throw for 350 yards against the Seahawks...

Eli threw nearly as many interceptions as td's last year. He had a weak 73 passer rating, that is well below the league average. " He "led" his team to 10 points in the first 58 minutes in the Super bowl, which should have been a miserable failure against one of the highest scoring teams of all time. Because the Giants defense played so well, he was able to win the super mvp by playing well for 1 drive- what a joke. The Giant defense deserves all the credit.
The bottom line is, he is a below average qb (that's what his lame passer rating tells us) who played above average for 3 playoff games and had one good drive in the SB. On opening day this year, he threw 4 gift-wrapped interceptions, the 'skins just dropped three of them. everything else this year is against sub-par competition. Peyton is a jerk but a far superior qb, I can't believe it's even up for discussion.

Jacob :

I still think Peyton, even though he is having problems right now, is the better brother. Peyton's stock is falling right now, but you saw at the end of the Houston game that things started to click with the offense, and defense. His stock is about to have something the Dow is not going to see anytime in the future, a bullish jump. As soon as Peyton gets in sync with the rest of his team get ready to hear people talking about the Colts and Super Bowl in the same breath again.
