Eli Manning was selected in 2004 by the San Diego Chargers, and was immediately traded to the New York Giants.
He led them to a Super Bowl victory in the 2007 season, over the heavily favored New England Patriots, winning the Super Bowl MVP.
Eli Manning was selected to the Pro Bowl in 2008. Eli Manning now engineers one of the most talented teams in the NFL, and arguably the top team in the NFC.
Why is he No. 4 then? Because he is on a stacked team, that featured six Pro Bowl players last year.
During their Super Bowl season, they had arguably the strongest defensive line in the league anchored by Hall of Fame DE Michael Strahan.
They have one of the most successful offensive lines in the league, and feature two, 1000-yard running backs.
If David Carr, Alex Smith, Tim Couch, JaMarcus Russell had had the support of Eli Manning, it's possible they might have succeeded as well.
I'm not an Eli Manning hater, although I realize this article will unleash the dogs on me, I just don't believe he's better than the three other players in this list.
