Since you should take the entire year in account when comparing Brett Favre and Eli Manning not just the fact that Eli's Giants (exspecially their defense) beat Brett's Packers in the NFC Title game, please remind me who finished 2nd in last year's MVP balloting. Who led their young team to a 13-3 record? Who has 3 previous NFL MVP's and had a year last year that statiscially was better than 2 of those previous MVP years? Yes, as the Quarterback Eli gets credit for the Superbowl win, but seriously, everyone knows that the Giants defense is what put them over the top. Now that the Giants are somewhat questionable on defense with Strahan's retirement and Osi's injury, the burden to win will be on Eli's shoulders. Eli has shown in the past that with a subpar defense, he can't win games. On the other side of the city, you have Brett Favre who had to play on numerous Packer teams that were either short on talent on the Offensive and Defensive sides, yet he still led his teams (with of course 2 years exception during the horrible Sherman era and coaching carousel) to the Play-Offs and beyond. Tell me now, with a depleted Giants team and a rebuilt Jets team, you really would take Eli over Brett? That is hiliarous; you might want to stick to picking daisies as your NFL analysis is rubbish.
