The Resume

    (January 3, 1981- )
    Birth name is Elisha Nelson Manning
    Attended the University of Mississippi (1999-2004)
    Drafted by the San Diego Chargers as the 1st pick in the 2004 NFL draft
    Traded to the New York Giants for the 4th overall pick, Philip Rivers
    Son of Archie and Olivia Manning
    Brother of Peyton Manning
    Heisman finalist (2004)
    Super Bowl XLII MVP (February 3, 2008) & Super Bowl XLVI MVP (February 5, 2012)

Why he might be annoying:

    His first name is Elisha.
    He looks just like his brother.
    He made it a point by saying he would rather sit out the NFL's 2004 season than play for the San Diego Chargers.
    The San Diego Chargers wound up drafting him, only to trade him to the New York Giants for Philip Rivers (the 4th overall pick in the draft).
    He was booed badly by the people at Madison Square Garden when he was drafted.
    This, in turn, technically makes Philip Rivers the 1st overall pick and all the benefits that come with it (signing bonus).
    Although running a 4.85 during the 40-yard dash, he isn't very mobile while in the pocket.
    After being traded, he said, 'I'm a lot happier now than I was 10 minutes ago.'

Why he might not be annoying:

    He is a third generation football quarterback.
    His brother Peyton was the first overall pick in 1998, while his father was the second overall pick in 1971.
    His mother, Olivia, was the Homecoming Queen at Ole Miss.
    Instead of entering the draft as an underclassmen, he stayed at Ole Miss until his senior year.
    He majored in marketing.
    He is tall, standing at 6'5.
    He owns 45 different Ole Miss records.
    He threw for over 9,800 yards in his four seasons with Ole Miss.
    His quarterback efficiency rating in his sophomore season was 144.8.
