    What the title says, whos Superbowl performance in the past 2 years was better?


    Eli:

    19/34, 255 Passing Yards, 2 TD, 1 INT, 3 Rush Attempts, 4 Rushing Yards

    Ben:

    21/30, 256 Passing Yards, 1 TD, 1 INT, 4 Rush Attempts, 2 Rushing Yards


    Both were huge factors in their teams come from behind wins, Eli mainly for his pass to Tyree, and Ben for his last drive ending in the Holmes TD.

    BigBen.

    Played with cracked ribs with a crappier O-Line, kept more broken plays alive than Eli.

    Eli no doubt. he avoided a sack from the toughest team in the NFL and made a huge upset. the Steelers were the toughest team and played against the Cards, who where the U-dogs like the G-men in 07. Big Ben had it easy. Eli had gone thru alot. you guys are jokes if you pick Big Ben lol j/k byt seriously, Eli worjed harder than Ben.

    The answer is Ben. Eli Manning was saved by a miracle catch and hitting a wide-open Burress because Hobbs fell down. Roethlisberger was a huge factor in his team's game. Manning was "there".

    Big Ben because his offense put more points on the board than the Giants offense did. 20 > 17. And Eli had a better supporting cast.

    I didn't say it was way more impressive. Stop putting words in my mouth.

    Give Big Ben an amazing offensive line, Brandon Jacobs, and Plaxico Burress and he would have put up 27-30 points.

    BTW, Eli Manning should have been picked off by Asante Samuel on the last drive. Just saying.

    I think you have to take into account the level of talent playing against them. 2007 Patriots > 2008 Cardinals all day.

    I'm a Jets fan, BTW, so no bias.

    The 2007 Patriots were much better than the 2008 Cardinals, so Manning's feat was more impressive.

    Manning won the closet thing to David and Goliath as you can get. The undefeated Pats and Tom ****ing Brady who was playing on a whole different level. Eli went in and played with confidence and beat what most were considering one of the best teams to ever take the field. People were already celebrating a victory weeks before that game even took place. I say Manning and I find that very easy to say.

    NO, and NO

    Eli was saved by a great defense an outstanding O-line and run game. Look @ the games. The Patriots statistically weren't even the best defense in the league, they were falling apart as the season dragged on. Which is why if you look at the scores put up in the 2nd half of the 07 season they were alot closer. They beat the Giants by 3 in week 17. Which is why people said that the over/under for the game was like around 7pts. The Pats were faltering. Eli just got lucky.

    The Cards performance IMO was overlooked to a great extent. They almost beat what statistically was one of the best defenses in the past 25yrs!!! Warner posted 400yds and if it wasnt for that int a SB win.

    Ben had it tougher because he is what kept the Steelers from losing that game, any other QB would of had a tough time. Ben had a refursbished O-line and like someone aforementioned he had to make more out of broken plays than Eli's single hail mary.

    It makes up for the INT that should've been, but then again that "should've" been INT would made that SB a lot different
