(Feb. 12, 2016) — Peyton Manning now has two Super Bowl championships. Eli Manning already had two.
But Tom Brady has four, New England Patriots owner Robert Kraft just had to remind everyone this week. He couldn’t let Peyton Manning and his family enjoy his second Super Bowl win.
After all, Manning’s Broncos bounced the Patriots from their seemingly annual trip to the Super Bowl this year. And the Patriots fell to little brother Eli not once but twice in the NFL’s championship game, including one in Indianapolis.
Speaking with WCVB-TV in Boston this week, Kraft addressed the age-old Manning vs. Brady debate. The jab was quick and pointed.
“I happened to see Archie [Manning] there,” Kraft said, according to ESPN. “He has two sons who have won two Super Bowls [each]. But with all due respect, we have one son who has won four.”
Kraft also said he regretted that the Patriots didn’t have homefield advantage for the AFC Championship Game. New England sputtered down the stretch, losing its final two games of the regular season. As a result, they had to play in Denver, where they fell to Manning’s Broncos, 20-18.
