Comparing the Manning brothers

Dan Pompei talked to three personnel people in the NFL to discuss the differences between Peyton and Eli Manning:

*Intangibles. Neither player is lacking in this area, but Peyton is an all-timer with intangibles. “Peyton’s mind and vision are at the highest level possible,” one of the personnel directors said. “He has total command. You can’t outwork him. He’s a better leader.” Said another, “Peyton is ultra competitive. Eli is more laid back, but he has turned that into a positive.”

About Todd Smith

Todd Smith is a part-time sportswriter who spends too much time arguing on Twitter. What he really loves is eating poorly and watching football. He got his first Colts t-shirt in 1984 shortly after the Mayflower trucks arrived and has never given up on his hometown team. He also still holds to the belief that Kordell Stewart stepped out of the end zone and thus cheated the Colts.
