It has to hurt when people tell Eli Manning he’s just the third best NFL quarterback in his own family.

It has to hurt when people tell Eli Manning he’s just the third best NFL quarterback in his own family. Eli is the younger brother of Indianapolis Colts quarterback Peyton Manning . Peyton just won his record-tying third MVP award Archie was the first round NFL draft pick for the New Orleans Saints in 1971 and completed more than 2000 passes in his 13-year NFL career.

However, Eli has the same number of Super Bowl rings as Peyton, one, which is one more than Archie.

Also, Eli Manning is the only Manning left in the hunt for this year’s Super Bowl. His New York Giants play the archrival Philadelphia Eagles in the second round of the NFL playoffs on Jan. 11th at 1 p.m. ET at Giants Stadium.

In fact, Eli could still become one of only 10 NFL quarterbacks ever to win two Super Bowls and one of only seven to win back-to-back titles, both of which Peyton has never done.

“Eli Manning now is three solid performances away from claiming sole ownership of a title no one in his or her right mind would have bestowed upon him a year ago today: greatest quarterback in New York history,” writes Newsday columnist Wallace Matthews.

Eli’s brother Peyton is sure to go the NFL Hall of Fame. However, has just a 7-5 playoff record and has lost in the first round five of the eight times his Colts have been to the NFL postseason. And Archie Manning has one of the worst win-loss records of any quarterback in NFL history (35–101–3).


So is Eli Manning really the just the third best quarterback in his family? Actually, he might just go down as not only the best quarterback in his family but as one of the best quarterbacks in NFL history.
