Value to Team
If the 2011 NFL season taught us anything it's that Peyton Manning is the Indianapolis Colts. Homie hadn't missed a game since entering the league back in 1998 but when a neck injury sidelined him for the entire season the Colts went from a legit contender to the laughingstock of the NFL, sporting a terrible 2-14 record. Eli has yet to miss a game since being named the starting quarterback in November, 2004 but saying he's as essential to the Giants offense as Peyton is to Indy's would be ridiculous. Just don't tell Jim Irsay that. What up, Andrew Luck?
