Eli Manning and Rex Grossman?

Everyone is constantly dogging Rex Grossman, but what is the difference between Manning (don't say a Super Bowl win) and Grossman. Seeing as Grossman has only played 1 complete season I only have 1 season to compare statistics, so we'll compare 2006 stats. Grossman - 3193 yds, 23 TD, 20 INT, 73.9... show more Everyone is constantly dogging Rex Grossman, but what is the difference between Manning (don't say a Super Bowl win) and Grossman.

Grossman - 3193 yds, 23 TD, 20 INT, 73.9 Rating, 55% Comp

Manning - 3244 yds, 24 TD, 18 INT, 77.0 Rating, 57% Comp
Super Bowl season - 3336 yds, 23 TD, 20 INT, 73.9 Rating, 56% Comp (not that far off from Rex's Super Bowl season)

So why is Manning a great QB and Rex a terrible QB? Statistically they look pretty similar to me.

If you can't give me an intelligent answer please don't answer.
Update: For You don't know me son Rex - 2005 - 192 yds, 1 TD, 1 INT, 54% Comp 2006 - 591 yds. 3 TD, 3 INT, 73% Comp Manning - 2005 - 113 yds, 0 TD, 3 INT, 35% Comp 2006 - 161 yds, 2 TD, 1 INT, 85% Comp 2007 - 854 yds, 6 TD, 1 INT, 95% Comp Manning had 1 extra game in 2007 then Rex in 2006.

Manning had 1 extra game in 2007 then Rex in 2006.
So you're saying because of 1 good playoff run, he's a better playoff QB. They both got their team to the Super Bowl, still don't see that much of a difference.
Update 2: Contact, are you saying that the Giants defense had nothing to do with the Giants playoff run?
