Eli Manning had an interview with a New York radio station earlier in the week and was asked if he considered himself, not only a top-10 NFL QB, but at the “Tom Brady Level.”
“I consider myself in that class,” said Manning on ESPN New York 1050. “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. 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.”
“I think now 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 led the Giants to a 10-6 record in 2010, throwing for 4,002 yards with 31 touchdowns and 25 interceptions.
While Eli is a serviceable play-caller with a Super Bowl ring (against Brady and the Patriots), is he really in the same class as Tom Terrific?

What do you think? Is Eli Manning in the same class as Tom Brady? In your opinion what makes a quarterback great: stats or rings?
