Think the title pretty well spells it out. Who do you think is the better QB between the two.
For me I say Peyton, just something about the way he plays that separates him from EliHow are you living your Dash?

Joined: 6/22/2004This year I don’t think there’s any question that Eli is better!
Joined: 10/14/2006Eli is a GREAT QB. No doubt about it, BUT…. and that is a big BUT Peyton is more well rounded. Peyton doesn’t seem to have as many kinks in his game. That could just be because big brother has been at it longer, but I’m still going with Peyton. Ask again in 3 years, and you may very well have a different answerPeyton is good for sure. Gained some respect for Eli though in terms of toughness and leadership recently. He’s always been a tremendously accurate passer. Hard to separate these 2 in terms of mobility but the slight edge goes to Eli. Peyton is probably better as the “coach on the field”. Overall I guess I would go with Eli. I think he very likely doubles his brother’s SB trophies in the next few weeks."Tomorrow is the most important thing in life. Comes into us at midnight very clean.

I don’t think there’s any question about that. Peyton simply has one of the best ‘heads’ in the NFL on the field, IMO. Mechanically speaking, I’m not sure I could pick one over the other. They’ve both had some stellar moments, and both have had some ‘Doh!’ moments over the years. Peyton isn’t a scrambler, per se, but he’s great at picking up the pressure around him and stepping up to throw. The last couple of years I think that if manning had the protection that Eli has had the last couple of games, Peyton could have picked apart almost any defense out there.
Both are stable guys, and I’m definitely rooting for Eli come Feb 5.I think Peyton is more consistent. What a family of talent though! Dont know what the other brother does but i bet hes successful. I hope they are all in the hall one day.
Joined: 7/11/2006In my opinon if Peyton had had the defenses that Eli has had behind him he’d have more Super Bowls under his belt. Now to really stir the pot if he ever had any of the defenses that Brady had he’d have 4 Super Bowls.
Joined: 12/12/2008Not to take anything away from what Eli has done this season BUT Peyton Manning has been one of the top 2 qbs in the NFL for a DECADE. Eli Manning managed to throw 20+ picks last season and many were calling him an average qb. This is by far Eli’s best season… again Peyton was great for a decade. Eli for one season.
Eli’s super bowl was helped TREMENDOUSLY by the defense and a miracle catch (not so much a great decision or throw by Eli)…
This season Eli’s defense is once again playing outstanding football… Eli is making plays when he needs them to, but his defense has consistently bailed him out.
Remember a few weeks ago Eli was ONE play away from being knocked out of the playoffs… he can thank his special teams for the block and the defense for consistently making plays…
I don’t even think the best team one versus the 49ers who had two muffed punts, and a non-fumble by the Giants.
People are talking about Eli like he has already won his second super bowl (which I feel he probably will with the defense playing like they are)…
Remember Peyton too made it to two super bowls, and Peyton’s defense has never been anywhere as good as Eli’s.
