I find it fascinating that people think that Giants quarterback Eli Manning would automatically get big endorsements should he win the Super Bowl. He shouldn't.
Not that I'm saying he doesn't deserve it, but if I'm a marketer of a company considering him, I don't hire him without pumping up his personality a bit and a couple acting lessons.
Manning has definitely taken a ride on the coattails of his brother Peyton, who over the years has actually become a fairly skilled athlete in commercials. But I'm not too confident that Eli can make the cut at this point. Though he did show some potential in this NFLShop ad.
