Eli Manning did not deserve the super bowl MVP. He had a good game but not a great one. Eli Manning only had 1 touchdown pass which is not MVP worthy. Also, Manning had just under 300 yards (296) and the average yards per game for a quarter back in the NFL is around 260 yards. So, he was not that much over the average. He did come up clutch in the super bowl, but so did Mario Manningham. Also, Nicks had 109 yards! The average yardage for a wide receiver (Nicks being a wide receiver) is just under 80 yards. Also, Ahmad Bradshaw had a great game with 72 yards which is just under the average yardage but he did have a good touchdown. A player from the opposing team also could win the MVP. Tom Brady of the New England Patriots had a better game than Manning by having 276 yards and 2 touchdowns. The MVP is also decided on big moments/plays in the game. Mario Manningham did not have a great game statistically speaking but he did come up with a clutch FINGERTIP catch deep in the forth quarter of the game winning drive. He caught the ball off of double team coverage and battling the twelfth man (the sideline) and caught the ball off his fingertips, tight roping the sideline, to come down with the catch. That catch later set up the game winning touchdown.

Eli Manning did not have a stellar night and just because he was the quarter back does not mean he deserved the MVP.

First lets remind ourselves that someone deserves a Super Bowl MVP based on their entire game. Being the Most Valuable on two plays, regardless of their importance does not outweigh an entire game's effort. (There's a reason Adam Vinateri doesn't have a Super Bowl MVP. Also, one does not have to have an exceptional game, he just has to be the most valuable. However, as my opponent pointed out for me, Eli did have an above average game. The rest of his team, even if they played well, did not have as big of an impact as Manning. Also, we have to take into accout leadership, and the fact that the Giants team felt confident that they could pull it out down late with the World Championship on the line. The fact that his entire team could rally aroun him shows that he was very valuable. The Patriots were three-point favorites going into the game, and Brady still couldn't pull out a win, which tells you enough about how valuable he was.
