Super Bowl 2012 Media Day: Eli Manning Talks About Peyton Manning ... Again

New York Giants quarterback Eli Manning spent much of his Monday news conference talking about what the future might hold for his brother, Peyton. During the Super Bowl Media Day madness on Tuesday, the story was the same.

“Peyton’s going to do everything he can to get back healthy,” Eli told NFL Network’s Deion Sanders at Media Day. “He wants to continue to play football, and I think that’s the No. 1 priority right now, get him well, get him back at the level he was playing football. That’s the goal, and if he can do that, everything else will work itself out.”

In the first Media Day open to fans, Manning drew cheers from those wearing his brother’s famous No. 18 jersey when he mentioned how special it would be to see Peyton on the field in a Colts uniform next season.

“I’d love to see him back playing football again next year in Indianapolis, and hopefully, that’s the case,” Eli said. “Obviously, there are a lot of things that will get worked out, but the No. 1 thing, the No. 1 importance to him right now is getting back to 100 percent.”
