    Better second-half of their career thus far: Eli or Big Ben?

    http://espn.go.com/nfl/player/stats/...26/eli-manning
    http://espn.go.com/nfl/player/stats/...roethlisberger

    Both guys have been in the NFL for 8 years. In the first 4 years of their career, both won a Superbowl, but Ben probably has the edge in regular season stats, greatly helped by maybe his best statistical season of his career in 2007.

    Onto the last 4 years where both players won their second SB ring.

    Average Eli season from 08-12: 16 games started- 27 TDs: 16 INTs- 4049 Passing Yards- 61.6 Comp%- 89.4 QB Rating

    Average Ben season from 08-12: 14.5 GS- 20 TDs: 11 INTs- 3727 Passing Yards- 62.9 Comp%- 92 QB Rating

    When taking into account regular & postseason success Eli's best season was 2011, Ben's was in 2009. IMO Eli 2011 > Ben 2009.

    The stat's are really close. What do you guys think? These guys will be compared to each other for a looooong time.

    You're right. Their fumble numbers are pretty high compared to other QBs...

    Ryan - 20
    Schaub - 25
    Brees - 26
    Rodgers - 29
    Rivers - 30
    Cutler - 31
    Romo - 36

    Not as bad as I would have guessed.

    Surprised Eli's TD% was that high. Interesting.


    I've never been a Ben guy anyways. I'd take Eli's style over him all day.

    Unleash the beast.

    Who would I rather have? Eli Manning no question. No off-field issues, and is as durable as a diamond.

    Who has been better? That's a toughie. Got no prob going either way on this one.

    This is how I feel. More confident in Eli in continuing to get even better, while with Ben I think his best seasons may be behind him.

    Yeah Eli is likely to enjoy the longer career because of his smarter style of play.

    When's the last time Eli was injured? A dislocated shoulder 4-5 years ago?

    Whereas Ben seems to be injured every year with something new.

    Ben is just so unconventional. That's what bugs me. He's not near as playground as he once was, but still.

    Unleash the beast.
