Eli Manning beat Tom Brady in their one matchup in the playoffs, but very few people would take that to mean they're equally talented. Apparently, Manning is one of those people; he told Michael Kay on Tuesday that he is in a class with his counterpart on the Patriots. It remains to be seen how they compare this season, but Brady's stats over the past few years have dwarfed Manning's. Are the Giants even in competition in their own division with Manning behind center? Rank 'Em: Where do Brady and Manning stack up?
