Quarterback: Eli Manning

When you look at the NFC East there are two proven quarterbacks with a legitimate arguments to be the All NFC East team representative. Those two quarterbacks of course are Eli Manning and Tony Romo. Manning and Romo are in very many ways equals. They both put up big time numbers and they both give their team an extra bit of credibility, in the passing league of the NFL. But there is a reason that Manning is the winner.

With the game on the line, down by four needing a touchdown to win the game, I want Manning under center. Manning has a clutch gene that few quarterbacks can equal. He has the ability to step up to the moment and make something magical happen. There is a reason Manning has two Super Bowl rings and Romo has none. Romo is known for his late game interceptions. Manning is known for his late game heroics in the Super Bowl…twice.

This isn’t a knock on Romo; he is an exceptional quarterback that makes the Cowboys hard to handle. The thing is though if I was told I could chose either quarterback to win one game, it would be Manning. Manning is hard to rattle and the stage is never to bright for him.
