The Patriots and Giants enter the Super bowl with two quarterbacks at
different stages of their careers.Brady is a first ballot
Hall of Famer who is chasing history, while Eli Manning is entering that stage of his career that will
determine if he is to be considered an elite quarterback .Brady is a 3 time super bowl champ,2 time Super Bowl
MVP ,2 time league MVP etc.,etc.Manning is a 1 time Super Bowl champ and 1
time Super Bowl MVP over these same Patriots in 2008.Both quarterbacks enter the
game chasing the same championship but for different reasons.Brady is chasing
history while Eli is chasing a shadow .Although only one can
win this game ,Brady's legacy is established while  Eli  is trying to escape being Peyton's
little brother .Eli has proven to be a clutch performer something even his brother couldn't prove
over his own Hall of Fame career.
