Giants' Eli Manning Says He's 3rd Most Talked About Quarterback in New York

| by

There's been a lot of talk for the past month or so surrounding the New York Jets' quarterbacks, Tim Tebow and Mark Sanchez.

Both have been garnering much attention over who is going to start. It also helps when you have Tebow as the most popular athlete in the biggest city, and you also have Sanchez, who girls somehow always want to go for.

With all of this happening, no one has talked about Eli Manning, who is just coming off his second Super Bowl win with the Giants.

"New York Giants just won a championship yet I'm still the third most-talked-about quarterback in my own city," Manning jokingly said in a panel discussion with Fox Sports following his college Ole Miss honoring him. After he said the comment, the whole audience burst into laughter.

This definitely looks like a preview of what's to come for Eli, as he hosts Saturday Night Live on May 5, doing something a lot similar to what his brother Peyton did a few years ago.

"I am looking forward to it," he said last week. "'Saturday Night Live' will be fun and it will be a new experience for me.

"Right now, I am probably more anxious than anything just to kind of figure out what I might be doing. I might be doing something that is a little bit out of my character or uncomfortable. But I'm looking forward to just working hard that week and having a lot of laughs and being prepared."
