Eli Manning is a top quarterback for the New York Giants and also have a super Bowl MVP award to certify it. He said on Monday that he considers himself a top quarterback who essentially belongs to the class of people such as New England’s Tom Brady. Odds
He said “I consider myself in that class and Tom Brady is a great quarterback, he’s a great player and what you’ve seen with him is he’s gotten better every year and he started off winning championships and I think he’s a better quarterback now than what he was, in all honesty, when he was winning those championships,” “It’s funny, you say well he won championships, but the team, but I think know he’s grown up and gotten better every year and that’s what I’m trying to do. I kind of hope these next seven years of my quarterback days are my best.”
Manning is considered to be one of the best quarterbacks out there as has led the New York Giants to the playoffs in a good four seasons and as a full time starter, there is often times some hesitation in place when putting him among the elites of the game. While manning is definitely the best and the lead passer with 4002 yards and the fourth in terms of touchdowns 31 scores just last season his 25 interceptions are around the number that jumps out the most.

He had said that a good part of his interceptions last season was a result of bad decisions. Las Vegas odds
Manning said “I’m not a 25-interception quarterback, I know that,” “That’s going to be fixed and it should be a good year.”
Living up to his claim is definitely going to be a challenge for him this year as the Giants have missed on their receiving targets this offseason.
Manning said “I didn’t want to put my owners in a spot, I didn’t want to put my other teammates in a spot saying that I thought we needed him because then all of a sudden it would be in the papers that Eli didn’t think his receivers were good enough or something like that,” “It’s not my job to go out there and promote for somebody. I’m trying to get better and if they want to bring him in, great, and we’ll get back to work and see how we can get better. I didn’t know what the circumstances were. It wasn’t going to be a case of me going after it and make a decision whether Plaxico is coming to the Giants. It was going to be some other factors.”
