This. Dude had teams that were absolutely f**king loaded for about a decade and has only 1 Superbowl win against a flawed Bears team to show for. Eli got all the clutch genes in that family. Manning in the regular season and Manning in the postseason are two entirely different players.
Eli is more clutch but I'd say Giants are one lucky team. 3 of their 4 SB wins luck went their way. First one was legit.... then Craig fumble and Norwood miss with 8 seconds left...... 3rd one Tyree helmet catch and patriots not bringing him down.........4th one Kyle Williams going potato (especially first one) then wes welker drop
It really is funny Peyton one of best regular season QBs if not the best with Brady and only 1 SB win to show for it despite 7 straight years of 12 wins. Eli looks like worst QB in league, other times best and has 2 SB wins in half as many years.
As for the Steelers I think it's a lot to do with their recent drafts. They have missed a lot these past handful of years. Not to mention just got older with guys like Polamalu, Harrison, Farrior, Foote, Hampton, etc, etc. Plus they lost some big free agents a long the way like Holmes, Wallace, Burress, Faneca, etc. Well those past years would replace in draft or next man up and haven't done that recently.
