Before Super Bowl XLVI even begins, it appears that New York Giants quarterback Eli Manning has already beaten New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady….in the quarterback that most married women would cheat on their husbands with.

Recently, a poll was done by the folks over at Ashley and they asked married women who were they more likely to have an affair with if they had a choice between the star quarterbacks.

Manning won by a 54-46% margin and Eli’s good looks were one of the reasons why:

54% of married women polled said that they’d rather have a dalliance with Manning because of his to his “boy next door” good looks, according to the adultery-promoting company.

Philandering females said they thought Manning would be “less of a hothead” than Brady and easier to relate to. Manning is married to Abby McGrew, his college sweetheart from his days at University of Mississippi.

    All the women polled are already cheating on their husbands.

    Well, I’m single, so I don’t know if I qualify, but I thought this was a given. Eli Manning every time. He’s sweet and sexy.

    In this economy, my wife would not have to cheat…I’d help her pick out her evening gown ! Her goal would be to get pregnant with triplets !

    Child support should be about a MILLION per child, per year, for one night of fun. We’d be able to make a few investments and retire early !

    Anyone have Eli or Brady’s phone number, email, home address handy ?

    WTF, you call this news?? Ben Chew you don’t deserve a column!! Find a tabloid for your stories, though I doubt they hold muster for a tabloid’s minimal news worthy requirements.

    Eli Manning is more good-looking than Brady???? Maybe I’m blind.

    Then again did these women choose Eli because they know they don’t stand a chance with Brady?

    what a boring poll. poll football loving husbands to find out which of the two qb’s they’d cheat with. now that would light up the comments board!

    Yes but who would the husbands prefer to cheat on with… Bradys’ wife or Elis’?

    The women are probably just being realistic, comparing themselves to Gisele, they know they’d have about 0% chance to ‘cheat’ with Tom Brady.
