“New York Giants just won a championship,” Manning joked to Fox News’ Shepard Smith during an appearance at the University of Mississippi, “yet I’m still the third most talked about quarterback in my own city.”

Jets QBs Mark Sanchez and Tim Tebow have been the talk of the town lately — the former for his role in the team’s disappointing 8-8 finish last season and the latter for, well, being Tim Tebow.

“It was obviously very special,” Manning said. “After eight years in the NFL you realize how difficult it is to get to a Super Bowl, let alone win one.”
