Supporting Cast Pt. 2, Everybody Else

This might actually be a better gauge of the Mannings' respective supporting casts, since at least some of the numbers and accolades these players accumulated aren't directly tied to the performance of Peyton and Eli. In his seven-plus seasons in the league, Eli has had five AP All-NFL teammates: Tiki Barker and Osi Umenyiora in 2005, Chris Snee and Justin Tuck in 2007, and Jason Pierre-Paul this past year.

In his 13 full seasons as a starter, Peyton suited up with 13 players who had All-NFL seasons: Edgerrin James and Marvin Harrison in 1999, Harrison in 2002, Mike Vanderjagt in 2003 (ask Tom Brady how important a kicker is to your legacy), Dwight Freeney in 2004, Jeff Saturday and Bob Sanders in 2005, Harrison yet again in 2006, Saturday and Sanders again in 2007, Freeney and Dallas Clark in 2008, and Reggie Wayne in 2010.

Throw out the seasons from the wide receiving duo of Harrison and Wayne, and Peyton's still played with more first-team all pros, including Jeff Saturday, who was considered the best center in the game during the second half of the '00s. Peyton certainly did more with more, but Eli did pretty well with a lot less. Advantage Eli here as well.

Advantage: Eli

Eli: 4 | Peyton: 2
