Manning & Favre Top NFL Homes

Updated takes America's favorite fall pasttime and gives it a real estate twist with a profile of top football players and their tough-guy digs.

With football season in full swing, it only seemed fitting to run down some of the best-weirdest, most expensive, self-promotional-homes of the gridiron gods. Dynastic golden boy and New York Giants quarterback Eli Manning leads the way, but don't miss more from Brady, Ochocinco, Palmer, and a spry, young, innocent Brett Favre after the jump.

Apparently Manhattan was too highfalutin for Manning, so he purchased a 3,000-square-foot condo across the Hudson River in Hoboken, N.J. (above). The views of the NYC skyline might be majestic, but li'l Manning is more interested in the goings-on inside and has the place decked out for reviewing game footage. So decked out, in fact, thatElectronic Housemagazinestoppedby to gawk at the motorized shades, A/V extravaganza, and hidden bar-all controlled via Crestron remotes. Over-the-top? Maybe not when Manning saved so much on the less-than-impressive address, and certainly not when his peers engage in far more extravagance.
