Maybe those Ă˘â‚¬Ĺ“Manning Brothers at the Super BowlĂ˘â‚¬Âť story lines were a tad premature, but itĂ˘â‚¬â„˘s not too early to start making comparisons between Peyton and Eli, one the undisputed statistical champion at the NFLĂ˘â‚¬â„˘s most visible position, and the other a bona fide rising star.
Peyton has made the Colts the AFC favorite to reach this seasonĂ˘â‚¬â„˘s Super Bowl, as all roads will go through IndianapolisĂ˘â‚¬â„˘ s NASCAR-fast indoor track, where the home team is a blur on offense. Eli, in just his second pro season, has displayed astounding fourth-quarter magic and put the Giants in the thick of both the NFC East and wild-card chases.
The scions of former NFL quarterback Archie Manning have helped to make this the First Family of Pro Football, a fact not lost on one long-time NFL official who called Manning Mania Ă˘â‚¬Ĺ“mind-boggling, almost unfathomable. Just consider how hard it is to play quarterback in this league, and you have two brothers this talented. And Archie Ă˘â‚¬â€ť he was a really terrific player who got stuck on some really bad teams.
