2:00 to go in the Super Bowl, against an elite defense, backed into your own zone on the 1-yard line, directing somewhat equal, healthy offenses, who do you take to win it all for your team?

Gimme Ben. Against an elite d you need a QB that can make plays with his arm or legs

Eli has shown us time and time again why he should be the answer to this poll.

Ben has too...

Give me Ben. He's just so hard to stop. It's annoying.

It's a toss up. I'll go with Eli "what have you done for me lately" Manning.

Tough choice for sure. Obviously I'm taking Eli since I'm a Giants fan.. but I can't argue against Ben.

The way I see it..

Eli: Better at reading defense and being in position
Ben: Better at extending the play

Truth is it probably just comes down to the specific defense they're up against.

There is no right answer... However, I will say this "Ben can't read a defense and extends plays" thing is quickly being proven wrong under a coordinator who actually calls half decent plays.

Yea, I dont think people get how good Pittsburghs Offense has been this year with just putrid line play.

Possibly the best Bens ever played.

Both guys give you an excellent chance to win in that situation. No right or wrong answer. I'd prefer Eli (homer) but I'd have absolute confidence in Ben as well. In fact I'd take Ben/Eli in this situation over any other current QB.

if its safety blitz then il just let rg3 run it in for the td. Laughing

Jokes aside, i would take eli. That man is very clutch and we have seen him do it twice in the superbowl. Twice. Hes a man among legends. gotta go with him.

I said Eli. He looks a little less clumsy than Ben, if that makes sense.
