Debate: Where's the love for Eli?
Eli Manning has two rings. So why is he completely overshadowed by Mark
Sanchez and Tim Tebow in NYC? Let's debate! More ...
Manning has two titles to his name, the same as John Elway, Bart Starr, Bob Griese and Roger Staubach. All four of those men are enshrined in Canton.
"Eli has been a real clutch quarterback," Simms said. "When you talk about why, never underestimate who he plays for and how he's been groomed."
Simms is right about Coughlin, too. Manning has been extremely fortunate to play his entire career under one coach, a man who believed in him and stayed patient during the necessary growing pains.
Now both Manning and Coughlin are reaping the rewards of that patience and dedication. If both go to Canton, they should go together.
