Eli Manning is overrated due to his Super Bowl victory against the undefeated Patriots and his last name.
First of all, the Giants won that Super Bowl because of their defense, not because of anything Eli did on the field.
In terms of his last name, he will never be as close to as good as his brother Peyton.
Eli commonly forces passes that lead to crucial turnovers. He has the luxury of playing with perhaps the best offensive line in the NFL and one of the best defenses in the league, yet he doesn't put up the numbers he should.
The biggest knocks I have against Eli are his leadership and intangibles. He is certainly tough, but as an NFL quarterback, you have to be able to rally the troops. Eli commonly falls short in this aspect with the dazed look he sports on the turf.
