New York Giants‘ quarterback and 2012 Super Bowl champion Eli Manning visited CNN’s Starting Point to talk Peyton, Super Bowl ring, Saturday Night Live performance, off-field pranks, taking a month off and his work with nonprofit Build Our Kids Success before-school program.

Manning says, “You know, it’s one of those deals in New York.  You win a Super Bowl, but I’m the third most talked about quarterback right now between Mark Sanchez and Tim Tebow and I.  That’s the way I like it.”

BALDWIN:  And now Tim Tebow here in New York.  Have you had coffee with Tim Tebow?

MANNING:  No, I haven’t seen Tim since he has been in town.  You know, it’s one of those deals in New York.  You win a Super Bowl, but I’m the third most talked about quarterback right now between Mark and Tim and I.  That’s the way I like it.

WILL CAIN, CNN CONTRIBUTOR:  Speaking of backup quarterbacks, I didn’t know this but you are supposedly the godfather of pranks.  I hear these stories about you reprogramming the phone into Japanese.  What’s your best one?  What’s your claim to fame?

MANNING:  You know, it’s hard to say.  You know, I don’t really like — our rookies just got in this week.  I don’t want to give it away.
