Yeah, there are a lot of other guys that can be on that list if toughness and longevity is the criteria.
Joe Kapp, Terry Bradshaw, Jim Plunkett, Bobby Layne, Dan Pastorini, etc.
I think Manning takes fewer hits than a kid in a pee wee hockey game. Troy Aikman had that massive line to hide behind.
Ben may be a bit dramatic at times, but consider he is almost in David Carr territory every year for sacks taken and he definately ranks ahead of Eli. And, that whole motorcycle, facial reconstruction incident too.
