Newton's Law: A Newton in motion will remain in motion, unless acted upon by an endzone.
I remember Peyton doing an interview at the Heisman Trophy ceremony in 1998. Of course the media was slobbering all over Peyton's every word. He told them then that they didn't know anything. That his little brother was way better than he was and soon enough they would see for themselves.
Looks like Peyton knew then who would be the better QB. Lots of positives on both sides. They should sell Archies sperm.....

Why don't we let Eli be Eli and Peyton be Peyton. They are such different players on such different teams that it is just too hard to say. I think a big reason that they shy away from comparisons has more to do with their differences than the fact they are brothers. Eli knows that no one in the world can dictate a game like Peyton Manning, he is the best in the world at what he does. But at the same time, Peyton would never even attempt some of the throws that Eli makes look easy. Eli might have the best combination of arm strength and accuracy in the game today. New York's play-action offense, with emphasis on the deep to intermediate passing game, is tailor made for Eli's skill set. Eli may look shy and overwhelmed on camera, but he is without a doubt the more serious, aggressive and confident of the two. Not many players have the combination of arm strength, accuracy, and confidence to throw that ball down the sideline in such a perfect spot like he did tonight. As for Peyton's acknowledgement of Eli's skills, here is an example I was lucky enough to witness: At the passing camp they host for high school and college players during a break in drills the high school guys naturally crowd around the NFL and major college players who were there, and Peyton and Eli would usually kid around or just toss the ball with the guys. During one break, after a drill working on accuracy and timing, they were showing off a little bit. Peyton would throw the ball straight in up in the air about 40 feet. The ball wouldn't even turn over, it would just fall straight down at him and he would stand right under it looking up. Eli was about 20 yards away and when the ball was about 5-10 feet from Peyton's nose, Eli fired a pass and knocked it straight out of the air. I've never seen anything like it. One kid asked them to trade places and without hesitation, Peyton said he couldn't do it. Eli's skill set is incredible and the Manning family and the entire Giants roster has known it for some time.
