08:39 AM ET 07.12 | When Super Bowl XLIV dawns in Miami on Feb. 7, there is no other place that Peyton and Eli Manning would rather be than in uniform at Land Shark Stadium. But a matchup of Peyton's Indianapolis Colts, who won the Super Bowl after the 2006 season, versus Eli's New York Giants, who won the title after the 2007 season -- well, that is something the Most Valuable Players of those respective games would not relish. Peyton said, "I think it would be great all the way up until the final second clicked off. I know that for Eli and I both, after winning our Super Bowl, there was no greater feeling immediately after the game than being in the locker room in the postgame celebration. "Yet, I've talked to some guys that have been in that game and lost, and they talk about how there's no more miserable feeling because you got so close. That's not something that anybody wants to experience, either. So somebody would have to go through that in that game. Somebody would be on the ultimate high, and somebody would be on the ultimate low."
