Now who is the the best quarterback in the Manning family? Eli!!
He engineered a
game winning, TD drive to put them up 21-17 with 57 seconds over Brady and company.
It was almost a repeat drive of the last time these two teams met in the Super Bowl. That game, 4 years ago, Eli drove 88 yards to score the game winning TD. To cap off that drive was the impossible catch by David Tyree.
But there is no need to live in the past any more for Giants fans. Ahmad Bradshaw’s 6 yard TD put the Giants ahead of the Pats with 57 seconds left and it set up what looked like a incredibly exciting minute.
With 5 seconds left the legendary Patriots QB threw one last, desperate, heave to the end zone that was almost tipped and caught for a TD but fell harmlessly to the turf.
Eli’s MVP performance not only got him a nice car, but the rightful title of an elite quarterback. It also helps to beat your older brother in rings in the house that Payton built.
I’ve alway been an Eli fan and always thought he was an elite QB and the smartest QB in the sport. This only proves my point. With this ring, he now has added to a career built on postseason performances and more importantly, he is now beating his older brother in Championship titles.
