    Peyton, far and away.

    Eli is much more a product of his supporting cast...

    Peyton Manning is the best QB I've ever seen. Super Bowl rings be damned.

    Putting Eli in the same sentence with his brother isn't fair at all to him.

    We all know who the better Manning is. Waste of internet web space.

    When Peyton Manning is on top of his game, there isnt a more feared quarterback in the History on the NFL. That guy is a human computer.

    I know the media was trying to group them together, but it's no contest.

    Peyton is consistent. Eli definitely is not.

    yep.

    One way we look at it is this:
    let Eli and Peyton switch teams over their careers, with the same players on each team except QB.
    My guess is that Peyton has 3-4+ SB wins and Eli has zero.

    Unpopular opinion but Eli has been better in the playoffs. That's a fact.

    Pretty marginal
    Eli 89.3 playoff passer rating
    Peyton 88.4 playoff passer rating

    Here are some other facts:

    The Giants defense has been better in the playoffs than the Colts defense.

    The Giants defense in 2007 and in 2011 played much better in the playoffs than they did during the regular season of either year, especially their d-line.

    Giants receivers have come up with amazing career catches in the playoffs while Marvin Harrison has curled up in the fetal position and disappeared.
