Default Eli Manning: Iím not better than Peyton ..

Quote:
It would have been inconceivable early in Eli Manningís career that anyone would suggest he was a better quarterback than his older brother. But now that Eli has won his second Super Bowl MVP award, he acknowledges that people sometimes tell him heís better than Peyton.

ďI correct them very quickly,Ē Eli told Jason Cole of Yahoo Sports.

In a wide-ranging interview with Cole, Eli talks about the sibling rivalry that he has never allowed to be a rivalry at all, saying that he has never considered himself better than Peyton and never been motivated by a desire to outdo the brother who was a high school star before him, a college star before him, a No. 1 draft pick before him, a Pro Bowler before him and a Super Bowl MVP before him.

ďIíve never tried to compete with Peyton,Ē Eli said. ďI never tried to say I need to be better than him. Iíve accepted at times that I wasnít maybe as good as him because he was the No. 1 high school player in the country. In college, he was going to be the first pick in the draft, so if I tried to go out there and be the same person and be better than him or the same person as him, Iím going to drive myself crazy. Iím going to go out and be the best quarterback I can be and get the most out of my potential. If thatís better than him, great. If itís not, so be it.Ē

How can you not like this guy? Mechanically Peyton is the better QB. Peyton is a machine on Sundays. However Peyton tends to get emotional and if there is a flaw in his game it would be that. Eli doesn't and that is probably why he is more clutch and just a winner. He is also doing it in NYC where the media pressure is off the charts. Come playoff time I am taking Eli over Peyton every time.
