But first, Manning is still riding the Super Bowl victory.
"I've got a little bit more down time before we start our (football) spring training in mid-April," Manning told Christian Red of the New York Daily News before attending a March of Dimes reception. "I'll continue to enjoy this and when we get our rings, I'll continue to celebrate our championship season."
Manning was then asked about Peyton, who recently landed with the Broncos after 14 years with the Colts.
"I think he picked a good spot in Denver.
"I'm just happy he's playing football this year," said Eli. "Last year, not being able to watch him on Sundays, on highlights, it was different. It was really the first time since I've been playing football that he wasn't."
Eli also commented on former Bronco and current Jets backup quarterback Tim Tebow.
"I had a feeling he wasn't going to the Giants," said Manning. "I kind of like to see who the Giants are bringing in, which players that we might lose. That's kind of what I thought."
"Tim's had a great career at every level," Manning added.
The article went on to say that Manning will go on to participate in the March for Babies charity walk next month, and then it’s back to work to prepare for another campaign.
"I'm looking forward to getting back to work, getting with my teammates and to start preparing for another big year," said Manning.

“How do you not rank the Giants No. 1? Yes, they finished 9-7 last season. But remember, they were rarely firing on all cylinders because of injuries (much like the 2010 Packers). They still won the Super Bowl. And thus, barring any unforeseen historical revisions, they're still the defending champs -- by a hair.”
