Default Re: Eli Manning: Iím not better than Peyton ..

For all the stats, awards, and accolades, Peyton Manning still suffers in the big game. It's a team game, but very few QBs before him ever had the entire team built around him and for him the way that Peyton Manning has. Yet for all that, he won a single Super Bowl during a period when he was flat out the most prolific QB in the game.

Eli, on the other hand, does not have the stats, the awards, or the accolades, but he has his ego in check enough to allow a winning team to be built around him, and he has the perfect balance of humility and self assurance to thrive in a place like New York. When the stage is brightest, he steps up. Ultimately, that is what you want in your QB, IMO. "Stats are for losers" is a cliche, but like all cliches, it's rooted in reality.
