Asked point blank by The Michael Kay Show Tuesday if he’s an elite quarterback, Eli Manning said yes. He also was asked if he’s in the Tom Brady class of quarterback, but he hesitated before answering.
“Yeah, 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 he was when he was winning those championships,” Manning said Tuesday.
Eli also gave himself room to grow the way Brady has. “I think [Brady'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.”
