Eli Manning doesn’t seem to be getting sick of all the questions about his brother.
Seated at a podium at Lucas Oil Stadium, where big brother Peyton Manning has called home, Eli was asked repeatedly about whether Peyton will keep playing and if so where that might be, and Eli answered every question eagerly, with praise for what Peyton has already accomplished.
“Peyton has had an unbelievable career and in my opinion is the best I’ve ever seen play football,” Eli said. “My goal is to get to his level of play. That’s something I’ve worked on.”
That drew loud cheers from the more than 7,000 fans who purchased tickets to attend Media Day, many of them wearing Peyton Manning jerseys. Colts fans know they need to take every opportunity they get to cheer Peyton at Lucas Oil Stadium.
