5 Reasons Eli Manning Will Be Better Than Brother Peyton Manning in 2012

Ever since Eli Manning was drafted and then traded to the New York Giants in 2004, the comparisons have not stopped.

It's hard not to compare him to his older brother, Peyton Manning, but people still do.

Peyton was on the high-powered Indianapolis Colts offense that always made the playoffs.

Eli was just trying to get his feet wet and establish himself playing for the Giants.

Fast forward eight years later and a lot has changed.

Peyton has one Super Bowl under his belt, but because Indianapolis is going through a rebuilding stage, he was the victim of a salary slashing and found a new home with the Denver Broncos.

Eli on the other hand, has won two Super Bowls and two Super Bowl MVP awards with the Giants and has become one of the elite quarterbacks in the NFL.

Some even think that little brother might be surpassing big brother at the current stage of their careers, which is possible.

Right now, given that Peyton did not take a single snap in 2011, Eli's career is in better shape.

Here are five reasons why I feel Eli will have a better 2012 campaign than his big brother Peyton.
