For the second consecutive year a Manning Quarterback has led his team to the Super Bowl [*and won 17-14 over the New England Patriots(2-3-2008). Eli Manning and the New York Giants are the Super Bowl 2008 Champions.]
Last year Peyton Manning, the current quarterback of the Indianapolis Colts led the Colts to a 29-17 victory in Super Bowl XLI over the Chicago Bears on February 4, 2007. He also won the Super Bowl MVP Award.
Eli Manning, Peyton’s younger brother, is currently the starting quarterback of the New York Giants and was the first overall selection in the 2004 NFL Draft. Like his father,Archie Manning, he attended Ole Miss and played as the Rebels’ starting quarterback. He recently completed his fourth NFL season, in which he led the Giants to an NFC title (2007), and three straight playoff appearances (2005, 2006, 2007).
Eli Manning and the Giants advanced to Super Bowl XLII after defeating the Green Bay Packers 23-20 in overtime on January 20, 2008 to win the NFC Championship game.
Eli hopes to repeat his brother’s feat but that road may prove to be most difficult with the undefeated New England Patriots waiting on the other side.
