Eli is further teased in a letter to Yankees great Derek Jeter. He sends this note to me every week now.
Peyton Manning has more time than he's ever had before, so he's writing letters!
Well, Peyton has a point! Even though he finished his last years with the Denver Broncos, Peyton will always be remembered for his time with the Colts and what he did to bring the team from its status as a bit of a punching bag into a serious year-in, year-out AFC contender. He won his first Super Bowl with the Indianapolis Colts in 2007. He was also the only quarterback to receive MVP votes in a year when Adrian Peterson ran for 2,000 yards to net the award. You'll forever have my respect. I have a Groupon for Red Lobster where $40 gets you $80 worth of scampi.
Eli Manning claims that Manning e-mails and texts him repeatedly to boast that he now has as many Super Bowl titles as his little brother, who quarterbacks the New York Giants.
"I just want you to know that I think of you as a brother", Brady said as he read Peyton's letter.
Still, the Manning-related highlight was a spoof of "Dear Peyton", a Gatorade spot released in April that featured people in Manning's life, including former Broncos teammate Demaryius Thomas, reading excerpts from exceedingly kind letters he wrote to them over the years.
