Eli Manning compares himself to Tom Brady

Manning or Brady?

While that's a fair debate, it's often Peyton Manning -- not Eli Manning -- that is compared to Patriots quarterback Tom Brady.

As a guest on The Michael Kay Show on ESPN 1050 in New York, however, Eli compared himself to Brady, per Matt Ehalt of ESPN New York.

"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 and 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," Manning said Tuesday. "It's funny, you say well he won championships, but the team, but I think know he'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."

While (Eli) Manning threw a league-worst 25 interceptions, Brady threw a league-low four picks and set the NFL record for consecutive pass attempts without an interception in 2010.

Yes, Eli. You're just like Brady.

However, he says it's a problem that he will fix.

"I'm not a 25-interception quarterback, I know that," Manning said. "That's going to be fixed and it should be a good year."

In our updated fantasy quarterback rankings, we ranked Peyton Manning one spot ahead of Tom Brady, who are five and six on our list, respectively. Eli Manning is 12th. Ahead of all three is the quarterback for whom Manning was traded on draft day: Philip Rivers, who moved up to third in our rankings.
