Better Super Bowl performance: Eli or Flacco?

Posted by Dan Salomone on February 6, 2013 – 1:09 pm

manningflaccoEven before the Ravens won Super Bowl XLVII, comparisons were being made with the 2011 Giants as teams of destiny. Naturally, the talk involved their two quarterbacks, and it has only continued since Joe Flacco replaced Eli Manning as defending Super Bowl MVP.

That is why NFL.com has posed the question: Who had the better championship performance – Manning or Flacco? It was broken down into “Pregame Pressure” and “In-Game Performance.”

Here is what NFL.com had to say about the quarterbacks:

Eli Manning, Super Bowl XLVI
Giants 21, Patriots 17
30-for-40, 296 YD, 1 TD, 0 INT

“Eli Manning entered Super Bowl XLVI with the opportunity of a lifetime. If he could beat Bill Belichick and Tom Brady in the Super Bowl for the second time in five years, he’d cement his legacy as a New York sports icon and possibly even reserve a ticket to the Hall of Fame. Those who are into all that talk about “elite” status (not my bag) noted that a win would induct him into that club, as well. If Manning and the New York Giants had gone down in flames in their rematch with the New England Patriots, however, it would have fueled talk that Super Bowl XLII had been a fluke.

“Manning was as cool as ever against the Patriots. You have to have nerves of steel to start a game of this magnitude with nine straight completions, a Super Bowl record. More importantly, he directed the nine-play, 88-yard touchdown drive that put the Giants ahead for good with 57 seconds to go. Manning finished 30-of-40 for 296 yards with one touchdown pass and zero interceptions, winning his second Super Bowl MVP award in five years.”

Joe Flacco, Super Bowl XLVII
Ravens 34, 49ers 31
22-for-33, 287 YD, 3 TD, 0 INT

“Joe Flacco entered Super Bowl XLVII on the precipice of greatness. Three playoff wins had significantly boosted his credentials and ensured he’d receive a huge payday from the Baltimore Ravens. But Flacco still needed one more win to put a stamp on one of the greatest postseason runs by a quarterback in NFL history. If Flacco had struggled against the San Francisco 49ers, his earlier conquests would have been largely forgotten. Flacco had started something, but now he had to finish it.

“You know how a 16-bit player turned into a ball of fire when he was going off in NBA Jam? That was Flacco on Sunday night. Every throw he made — even the throws he shouldn’t have made — were right on target. He finished 22-of-33 for 287 yards and three touchdowns, capping a postseason in which his touchdown-to-interception margin stood at a god-like 11-0. Flacco was named Super Bowl MVP, a well-earned honor for a quarterback who had made the leap.”

Who do you think had the better overall performance?

    ELI MANNING BUT JOE DID A GREAT JOB

  2. By Ben on Feb 6, 2013 | Reply

    I will say Eli. As great as Flacco played he never really needed to orchestrate a late game winning Super Bowl pressured drive to win the game, which Eli did, for the second time. So I give the edge to Elite Manning for late game heroics.

    The way Eli passed the ball to Manningham with such precision, it was right on the money. Props to Joe he did a great job but man under pressure I’ll take Eli any day.

    Eli without a doubt… and is just starting to get his due.

    Eli, Of Course . He Was Under Far More Pressure And Simply Out Played Tom Brady For The Second Time When It Matters. Joe Played Well, But HiS Performance Won’t Go Down In History The Way Eli’s Will.

    Eli. I believe both his superbowls he played were tougher games.

  7. By Anna on Feb 7, 2013 | Reply

    Eli of course. Joe had a rookie QB to play against & Eli had to repeat history made already with Pats swearing a win. Nerves of steel is an under statement for him.

    Ele joe played great but Eli was lights out good

    Of course Eli was better!

    I cannot believe this is a question, other than the fact its on the Giants website! hahaha Its Joe Flacco and its really not even close. Eli didn’t play against Tom Brady, he played against a terrible NE defense. Joe Flacco just torched the best defense in the league. Take off the LT jersey and take a step back and look at it from a rational standpoint. You too will notice, its not even close.

    new england or san fran eli had the harder opponent

    The truth is that Eli and Joe are great quarterbacks. Only Eli is greatER!

    lmfao i want to know what this is smoking! I’m sorry but didn’t Eli torch the same exact team this year but by a way larger point spread???? Joe an elite QB?! He won 1 Superbowl! The guy is a joke. If you seriously sit down and watch him he is a really good Alex smith. that’s all i see. He literally wings the ball down field and either it gets picked off, caught or its completely off target. cmon now. people are way too cocky for no absolute reason. Eli Manning holds records for playoff performances. maybe people need to read up on the NFL before posting comments on here and revealing how stupid people can be….

    Eli Manning proved his crittics with the elite question. Two RINGS, two MVP’s…..more then other hall of fame QB’s have. Enough said.

  19. By joe on Feb 10, 2013 | Reply

    Eli has shown he can be tough and he can get tougher , and when a team beleives in there leader and plays for the team its hard not to beleave he is the best of his time

    Eli. That’s simple

  21. By Bdigy on Feb 10, 2013 | Reply

    Eli hands down…game saver, and game changer…ice in his veins not once but twice…to Bobby the knucklehead when did the 49 ers ever start having a powerful secondary?? They are a joke hence the early lead…giants hut thm out completely…flacco did well but Eli has three receivers and not one of them break 6’1 ” and he finds them with pin point precision and timing…fuk the ravens lucky season, they earned it but c’mon…elitness can’t even be touched…take off ur emmit smith jersey bobby cuz ur prob an ass hole cowboy fan…

    Eli… Definitely… I am a San Francisco fan and both teams defeated them with a close score. However, I play in a junior Elementary football team as a QB and my friend is a WR. If I was Colin Kaepernick/Alex Smith, I would have said this “Both teams played well,

    Eli def had a better performance, he had grave pressure from the media and every football fan to beat NE a second time… Flacco did a good job

  25. By person on Feb 12, 2013 | Reply

    Eli did way better. Does anyone remember how the lights went out and the ravens (especially flacco) choked the whole second half. The ravens almost blew a 20 point lead in the second half. Great qb’s dont let that happen. Eli kept the giants in in the whole time and then let it all out on the final drive for a win. Flacco had to complete a pass and it would be over but he didn’t and the defense pulled it together for him.
