Wow people are trying to start a ****storm here arent they?

No, he is not better because he has a ring.

He is better because there is not a single QB i would rather under center down by 4 with 2 mins left in the game.

Come at me.

Are you responding to me?

The stats back up my observations...


Eli Manning stands out with the top ACE rating in spite of his below-average QB rating. Eli also has a Super Bowl ring -- in fact, the last four Super Bowls have been won by the players with the top three ACE ratings, and Peyton may make it five in a row. The relationship between ACE rating and Super Bowl success will be analyzed further later on in this column.

Also, from ESPN.com

Now it's time to retire the myth of the clutch QB. We looked at it and there is no year to year correlation when the game is on the line. Good QBs are generally good QB's in the clutch - meaning their QB ratings stay relatively the same...bad QB's such as Kyle Orton remain bad QBs"

Of course there are exceptions to every rule and that exception is Manning. No, not Peyton - Eli. He's been the only active QB whose passer rating has been higher in the clutch for five straight seasons. The difference is very small in most of those seasons except last year when Eli was insanely clutch ( 132.6 rating vs. 86.4 rating overall). But , besides Eli Manning, clutch QB's don't exist.
