The big story heading into week two is that Eli Manning and Peyton Manning will go head-to-head for only the third time in their respective NFL careers. Accordingly, debate has opened up as to which of the two is a better quarterback, with each of their teammates taking the side of their signal caller. But when discussing the seven touchdowns Peyton threw in a Denver Broncos victory over the Baltimore Ravens, New York Giants wide receiver Victor Cruz reminded everyone that Eli is also a big-time quarterback.
"I think [Eli is] tops in the league. He’s definitely a top five, top ten quarterback in the league," Cruz said.
But before Cruz could finish his thought, fellow wide receiver Hakeem Nicks, who had overheard this conversation, chimed in and injected his own opinion on the matter.
"Top three," Nicks proclaimed for the next locker over.
Top three, indeed.
"Top three, Hakeem said it first," Cruz continued. "But he knows how to read coverages and he knows how to get the ball downfield, he can make any pass in tight coverages. I’m happy he’s on my team."
As usual, many experts, pundits and fans will disagree with that. Lucky for us, that adds fuel to the "Poor Eli Manning" fire and we will be re-introducing that weekly article later today. Aren't you excited? We knew you would be.
