Peyton’s dig at Eli was clearly meant for the Giants top brass as well!

My opinion; yesterday at the first Super Bowl news conference, Peyton Manning was asked if Eli had given him any info on how to beat the Seattle Seahawks, he responded with a glib smile because the Seahawks dominated the Giants 23-zip earlier this year! And brother Eli had a less then a Manning kind of day.

Make no mistakes, Peyton had waited a long time to protect his younger brother from a dismal year where he set a personal and team records with 27 interceptions. Even Archie, the Patriarch of the Manning Quarterback family, let it be know to the New York sports media before the end of the season, that Eli would except his share of the blame but not all was on his sons shoulders.

In a sport as scrutinized as the NFL putting your teams best player behind a ageing porous offensive line was tantamount to getting him killed which didn’t happen – but a high ankle sprain finally did – during the last game of the season. There were actually times when the players on the O-line ended up farther from the line of scrimmage, in the backfield then Eli did.

The Manning’s are competitive football players but brothers first, who are protective of each other especially when it is clear that the team your younger brother is playing for isn’t not very good.

Book it Dano!
