For years Eli Manning has been living in his big brother’s shadow, NOT ANYMORE!!  After dispatching the Patriots in Super Bowl 46, Peyton has been relegated to the second best “clutch” Manning in his own family.  Eli has the composure and coolness to flourish under stressful conditions.  The Giants were very close to not even qualifying for the playoffs but managed to squeak...
