    No way!

    eli is hardly top 6 or top 8.. Eli just plays on a good team with good defense and that is well rounded. He is helping the team but he does not carry the team nor does he or is he responsible for most of there wins as he is not a QB that saves the day he is not even that great of a QB in terms of stats.

    Peyton Career QB RAT: 94.9, 54828 yards, 399 TD

    Peyton last season QB RAT:

    Eli Career QB RAT: 82.1

    Eli Season Rat: 92.1, 29579 yards, 185 TD

    Eli is not that accurate or great as peyton is. Peyton is top 3 QB in the league when he is playing or top 4...

    There are many many more stats Peyton is a much better QB..

    A team winning the super bowl is not because of a QB Its the whole team. You have a great QB like stafford on a team like the lions that sucks in a lot of places thus losses games. You have a great QB like #4 ranked romo in the league, playing on a team with good offense but horrible defense and bad coaching thus they lose games... Does not mean stafford is a bad QB or Romo is, they just are unlucky to be playing for teams that are not so great.

    Than you got a QB like Roethlisberger he is good but on a great team that is well rounded with a damn good defense. Rothlisberger may seem better than some other QB but he is not though id say he is top 10 as is eli.. Anyhow rothelisberger is far from carrying the team.

    Than you got QB like rodgers, and manning and brady without them the team offense falls apart and they are not good elsewhere they they struggle.

    No! People can make a case that Eli is a very good QB without heading into the non-sensical issue of whether he compares to his bro. Peyton did more, with less, than any QB in the history of the game. For most of his career, he's had an atrocious DEF, a very spotty running game, and WRs who excel because he makes them do so. The total collapse of the Colts tells the story of what Peyton accomplished with that franchise.

    No!!! Not even close. Eli is good, yes. But Peyton? Way better than Eli will ever dream to be. Eli has much better talent around him, not to mention the year they won the Super Bowl they somehow barley sneaked in, and this year they sneaked in as well. The Colts go from winning 10,11,12 games a season to 1 this year without Peyton. Not only is Peyton better than Eli, he is better than almost every other QB in the league.

    No, Eli has proven to be a good, perhaps great QB and has been unfairly compared to Peyton his whole career. That said however, what Peyton has accomplished and done through his career is more than Eli has done and if he could play, would still be among the top QBs in the NFL, I believe. A legend to a good QB is esentially what Im.saying here.

    Well, this year he obviously has been, since Eli has done amazing and Peyton is injured. However, it's pretty difficult to argue Eli is better since he hasn't even been close to an elite quarterback until this year. If he continues this pace for another few seasons (and he gets one more ring than Peyton), then MAYBE you could argue it, but Peyton Manning has just been too good for too long that you can't say Eli is the better quarterback.

    There is no easy answer to this question. Peyton has basically ran the Colts for most of his career and been very good at it. Eli had to work for his team to get good but beating the Patriots in a Super Bowl helped is stock. The truth is they are both good because they are both in the NFL. Also Peyton has been in the league longer so he has more stats. So there is really no answer to the question its really a matter of personal preferance. They both get paid to play football so they are both good.

    You cant answer this type of question when they both are still in the NFL. You have to wait until both of their careers to be over to actually ompare who is better. Peyton has better numbers because he was there longer.

    But you cant argue that Eli is much more clutch then Peyton is.

    If you compare stats you have to say no. But you have to look at the wat Eli is playing. He is rELIable.
