2. Eli Manning, QB, (Overrated)
A lifetime achievement award-winner for “barely average quarterback who rode memorable defenses to Super Bowl championships,” Eli Manning has never been considered a top five-to-seven quarterback in the NFL at any point in his career, but will likely be enshrined in the Pro Football Hall of Fame someday by virtue of the fact that he was the quarterback of two Super Bowl-winning teams.
Never mind the fact that both of those New York Giants teams that defeated the New England Patriots did so, in very large part, through stifling defense that limited quarterback Tom Brady. Instead, people will remember how Manning “led” New York to those Super Bowl wins. Here’s a stat to chew on… The Giants have not scored 30 points in a game since 2015. That is not a typo.
