Eli Manning Thinks He’s Tom Brady

Maybe it’s because he’s the third-best quarterback in his immediate family. Maybe it’s because he’s jealous that the other quarterback in town is on the cover of GQ. Whatever the reason, New York Giants quarterback Eli Manning yesterday said he is in the same class as reigning league MVP Tom Brady of the New England Patriots, in a desperate, delusional cry for attention on Michael Kay’s radio show.

Here’s what Eli, who won one incredibly flukey Super Bowl when Brady’s 18-0 Patriots choked and a Giants receiver caught a desperation heave with his helmet, told the Yankees announcer:

I consider myself in that class … And 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. It’s funny. You say he won championships, but he’s grown up and gotten better even year. That’s what I want to do. I hope these next seven years of my quarterback days are the best.

Did we mention that Eli’s 25 interceptions led the NFL last year? “I’m not a 25-interception quarterback, I know that,” Eli added in the same interview. “That’s going to be fixed and it should be a good year.”

For an encore, Eli said that he didn’t publicly advocate that the Giants bring back Plaxico Burress after his two-year jail term because he didn’t want to hurt the feelings of any of his current wide receivers. Eli and the Giants have missed the playoffs the past two seasons.
