Peyton will finish his career with one ring and Eli may win a couple more before he's done.

I don't know, I would still say Peyton is technically, but....

I wouldn't mind seeing this updated:

It's only too bad it is not more obvious it occurred in Indy...

I find arguments like these to be beyond pointless. There are tons of factors that go into winning football games. It's not that simple.

They are both great

Eli has won 2 SB's. He played great during this past season. But in both of his SB runs (and specially in the first SB), his dense was DOMINANT. Eli is a "good" QB. But he is NOWHERE in the class of Peyton. Peyton can carry an ENTIRE NFL team on his shoulders regardless of the talent on either side of the ball. Want proof? What record did they finish at this year? Eli, while winning 2 SB's, has relied on the strength of his defense.

While that is totally fine, it gives you an answer to your original question: Is Eli as good as Peyton? HELL NO! Rings do not always equal talent. Peyton is one of the game's greatest...EVER. Eli is a mere footnote in the list of historic NFL QB's.

For what it's worth Peyton, I agree with you.

I agree with this whole post but mainly the bold part. Peyton is a offensive coordinator playing QB!

On every forum, really. Eli has quietly carved out a pretty nice career in the shadow of his brother. Is it a HOF career? I'm not sure I'd say that - but given that Peyton Manning is a shoe-in first ballot, it's hard to keep Eli out at this point, no?

I agree with this also. I do believe he has earn a spot in the HoF.

Two championship rings should seal it for him.

He's earned the HOF. He's won two superbowls in which he made two CLUTCH plays on last minute game-winning drives. That escape and then pass to Tyree in the first superbowl, and now that pass to Manningham tonight. I can't imagine he's not in.

Yep...Eli will now make it into the HOF. But SHOULD he? Ha...probably not.

Like I've said before, winning rings should not automatically = HOF. Peyton is a HOF QB...NO DOUBT. But Eli? Oh good God no! (even though just because he has 2 SB's to his name will probably get him there).

But this is a whole other debate...the "HOF Committee sucks" debate!

Dont you think the title of this thread warranted that question ? And it isnt the Rings , it is the way he won those rings......Hell both wins were very Elwayesque as in come back drives late in the game to win .......Sorry you dont see that

okay why is Peyton?

Why isn't Eli?

leaving aside the ring issue, curious about the above and what do you think makes someone HoF?

OMFG...you're allowing a guy into the HOF because of 2 plays? The first one was basically a Hail Mary during a drive in which he has several throws that bordered on divine intervention to not get picked. And the second...YES it was a good throw, but to allow him into the HOF because of it? PLEASE!!

It was one throw! You don't get into the HOF because of one throw! God dammit people...stop exaggerating!!
