Some time ago my fellow writer Michael Samuels II wrote about how the New York Giants quarterback Eli Manning is neither an elite quarterback nor is he a Hall of Fame quarterback. I am a person that lives for a healthy debate, so I am here to disagree with Michael on both aspects of a) being elite and b) being a Hall of Famers.
Let’s take a look at Eli Manning’s career as a whole. In his 8 years as the “Quarterback of the Future” for the New York Giants, Eli has yet to miss a game. His touchdown to interception ratio is 185-129. At first glance, these aren’t stellar numbers, but in Eli’s case the numbers don’t tell the entire story. Yes, he’s thrown 14+ interceptions in all but two seasons and 20+ in two seasons, but we don’t bring down soon-to-be Hall of Famer Brett Favre for the same thing. His regular season play has been his downfall in most conversations though his play in the postseason carries his legacy.

Direct TV’s fairy commercials to support their NFL Sunday Ticket are a bit ironic. Football..fairies…players…tights…anyway, this reel signals the return of Peyton Manning.
As we will soon be reminded when he’s in motion, his brand shows up more than just on the field.
If quarterbacks were judged by MVP awards and commercial appearances, Denver’s Peyton Manning would undisputedly be the greatest of all time.
From wiping the windshield, to giving wet willies, to getting a massage, to ‘cut that meat‘, to ‘orange barrel, reroute!’, to telling on Eli for locking him in a closet, Peyton has pretty much done it all.

Russell Wilson stands at a mere 5-foot-11 and 206 pounds, on a good day. But at that diminutive stature, many big-time NFL pundits would say Wilson has no place playing quarterback in the league. Right? Well, in college, the talented quarterback only threw for 3,000 yards in three consecutive seasons. He also tossed just 109 touchdowns to 30 interceptions over his four-year career...
