Super Bowl 2012: Eli Manning Not Worried About His Legacy

If the New York Giants win the 2012 Super Bowl quarterback Eli Manning will become only the 11th quarterback in NFL history with two Super Bowl titles. Seven of those are already in the NFL Hall of Fame.

Manning said Thursday, however, that his legacy is not something he thinks about.

“My job is to try to play at a high level, try to play football for the Giants. I think the important thing when you play in big games, like a Super Bowl, is don’t let the fact that it is a big game make you think about other things. You have to keep it simple in a sense of this is a great opportunity for this team, for this organization to win a championship. That’s the important thing,” said Manning. “When you start thinking about other things or what this might mean, that’s when you’re really distracted from what your job has to be.”
