Eli

-Beat HOF Tom Brady two times now

-Better playoff win % than Peyton and has won more games away in the playoffs than Peyton

-Better TD:int ratio than Peyton in playoffs

-2 SB wins, just as many appearances as Peyton



How can you argue? 2 SB wins>1. Who did Peyton ever beat in the SB? A terrible, terrible Wrecks Grossman? Peyton also had the fortune of having a HOF cast around him for much of his career unlike Eli, yet Eli now has more SB wins.

Nope. Seriously, everyone should just let Eli have his moment. Good for him.

I am just glad that we have gotten to watch them both play. They have both added a lot of excitement to football!

There is more to greatness than stats. When you watch the leadership and intuition of Peyton you know you are watching one of the all time greats to play the game. Keep in mind, Peyton never had the defense that his brother has to help him out.

They have both proved themselves to be great QB's but Peyton is in a league of his own.

Peyton is great.
Eli is great.
As far as what matters, Eli is up 2 to 1.

No. Eli has had better teams more balanced teams. Peyton is better IMHO.
