I guess playing in a stadium thats home to your little brother can be quiet beneficial.
Peyton Manning and the Denver Broncos will be visiting NJ for MetLife stadium for a chance to win on the big stage, Super Bowl. To Peyton’s favor his little brother calls MetLife home so there might be some pointers Peyton will take heed to.
“I might have a few things for him, but I don’t want to reveal that, because I don’t want to give it to (Seahawks quarterback) Russell Wilson,” Eli Manning said on a conference call Thursday, via ESPN.com. “So any tips I may have wind-wise, I would tell him in private.”
“The old stadium definitely had a specific end zone and corner that you wouldn’t want to throw into if it was going to be a windy night,” Eli said. “If it is one of those windy days, then there is a little bit of local knowledge that you can give. But it’s definitely not as bad as the old stadium.”
When asked about how he feels about his brother losing the Super Bowl and still being considered the greatest, Eli still deems his brother the greatest.
“I think he’s already created his own legacy, and he’s played at a very high level for a long period of time, has overcome injuries and obviously set numerous records and been on a lot of playoff teams and is playing in a third Super Bowl,” Eli said.
“I don’t think that’s something that he’s worried about. There will always been arguments about who’s the greatest, who’s the best. If you’re in that argument, and your name is being thrown around in there, I think you’ve already created a pretty good legacy. He’s a competitor and he wants to win championships. I think that’s what he’s thinking about.”
