Manning remains one of the most polarizing quarterbacks to ever play in the NFL. One side thinks he has an overrated resume and was lucky to win two Super Bowl rings. Others point to his franchise records and clutch performances in two Super Bowls. Nonetheless, Manning was trending towards bust status before 2007.
Don’t forget, he entered the NFL Draft with a lot of hype around him. Then the Chargers went to war as they tried to coax him out West but he refused to play ball. Manning’s first two seasons as a starter were quite average but he proved his abilities. At the end of the day, he has the same amount of rings as his legendary brother Peyton Manning (via Fansided).
