Also, on the topic of him having the last shot. In the first Super Bowl, even. Brady had a long drive that left Eli with barely 2 and a half minutes to get a TD. Week 9 this year, Eli drove down field for the TD with just over a minute, again, right after Brady got a late TD. So while those two are close, Eli still finished, and has the edge. This years Super Bowl, Brady left his team scoreless for basically the last half of the game. Eli not only drove up the field for another game winning TD, but he killed enough time that Brady had to have a miracle to win. That factors into being clutch just as much as the actual scoring.

@Kyle Rodriguez @theBSR @ajorck He won two Super Bowls in those three games, Brady lost two. They were heads up, in games fairly evenly matched. I'd say the two rings are proof enough. I'm not knocking Brady, the guy is a legend, but to say he is more clutch than Eli, that's knocking Eli. Brady is famous for last minute drives, in tie games, that ended with a FG. Eli is famous for last minute drives, with his team behind, that ended in TD's. As crazy as it sounds, we're comparing apples and oranges, one situation has far more pressure than the other.

 @ajorck If Brady is better in "clutch situations", why has Eli beat him the last 3 games, where they both were put in those very situations?
