NEW YORK'S OTHER QB
The two-time Super Bowl MVP hosted Saturday Night Live on May 5 and performed in a skit sticking up for the rights of little brothers everywhere.
How does it feel to be the third-most-talked-about quarterback in New York?
ELI MANNING: It's fine by me. I'm not looking for attention.
Do you follow the drama with the team that shares your stadium?
EM: I wouldn't say I'm following it. I keep up with the NFL stories. This time of the year there's usually not a whole lot of football talk, and most of it's about the Jets. I don't think I'm as up-to-date as you are.
Were you more nervous before the Super Bowl or Saturday Night Live?
EM: Neither one [made me] real nervous. With Saturday Night Live, going live doesn't bother me. I've done live every Sunday for the last eight years. If I go out there and mess up, so what? I'm a football player, not an actor.
Did Peyton give you more advice before SNL or the Super Bowl?
