New York Giants quarterback Eli Manning said he's a top-flight signal-caller in the same class as the Patriots' own Tom Brady.

In an interview with ESPN New York 1050, Manning was asked if he's as good as Brady.

"I consider myself in that class," said Manning, the MVP of Super Bowl XLII. "Tom Brady is a great quarterback, he's a great player and what you've seen with him is he's gotten better every year. He started off winning championships and I think he's a better quarterback now than what he was, in all honesty, when he was winning those championships.

"I think now he's grown up and gotten better every year and that's what I'm trying to do. I kind of hope these next seven years of my quarterback days are my best."
