Three seasons is an eternity in the NFL -- just ask former Browns starter and current Cardinals retread Derek Anderson. But once all the talk dies down about the weather for Super Bowl XLVIII (and at this point, anything less than a scene out of "The Day After Tomorrow" is going to be a letdown), talk could shift to a pair of quarterbacks in their primes in 2014. And at least Eli Manning and Mark Sanchez will be used to the conditions.

For the first time since the Rams and Raiders occupied Los Angeles, the prospect exists for a pair of hometown quarterbacks to square off in the Super Bowl. But will Manning or Sanchez be the toast of the town in the Big Apple by the 2013 season?
