ELI MANNING'S BEST TRAITS: RESILIENCY AND TRUST (http://network.yardbarker.com/nfl/article_external/eli_mannings_best_traits_trust_and_resilliency/11105744)

"Trust and resiliency; the two traits that set average QBís apart from elite NFL
QBís. This article will go into detail and explain why itís so important for a
QB to display these traits.

Trust: As an NFL QB, you
have to trust your receivers to make plays. You can never be successful if you
second-guess every throw that isnít wide open. The great QBís will throw it up
into the right coverages and most of the time it works out. Trust can ruin a
QBís career if he canít build that trust with his receivers. The trust isnít
just need to be with his receivers, but also with his offensive line; he needs
to feel protected in the pocket.

Prime examples of QBís who trust their
receivers can go both ways, sometimes it doesnít work out. Just last year Eli
Manning threw 25 interceptions because he trusted his receivers to make those
plays and they didnít. What if the next game or next year he continues his trust
and wins the Super Bowl? I watched it happen to Romo and Vick this year as many
times as it happened to Manning last year. The great QBís know you have to trust
that your guy will run his route, then win the battle for the ball.

An
example of this not working was Sanchez last year when he lost all faith with
his offense. Sanchez was dropping back and not trusting his receivers to win in
their coverages and it cost him last year. Again, Iím going to have to mention
Sanchez dropping back and just having no faith in his protection either. This
all canít be put on a young QB. The team left him in a bad situation, but it
shows how losing trust can cost you the
season.

Resiliency: This is a huge factor in the
franchise QB, he has to be resilient. This ties into trust, but Iím not going to
double tap that issue. The QB has to be able to throw that interception or two
or three and forget it and drive on. You have to keep that short-term memory as
a QB. That doesnít just go for picks but touchdowns as well. When you think
about the QBís who can lead multiple game winning drives in a season this is
always one of their strongest traits.

Some people tend to mistake good
quarterbacks for resilient quarterbacks. For example, Aaron Rodgers was the best
QB in the NFL last year, but he is far from being a resilient player. If you
look back on the fourth quarter comebacks, they just arenít there. This isnít a
hit on Rodgers, he is a great QB and this year rarely fell behind, but when he
did get behind he was in trouble. A resilient QB can take his team on his back
and score multiple touchdowns at the end of the game to give his team a
chance.

These two traits were key to Eli Manning winning his second
Super Bowl MVP in five years. Eli Manning is by far one of the most resilient
players in the NFL. This even comes down to the constant critics from the media
after proclaiming to be in Bradyís class. Even Eli Manningís peers seriously
underrated in this years top 100 players yet again. As a Giants fans you canít
even be upset at this point, the critics may not end, but the Lombardi trophy is
resting safely in New York."

I think his best trait is toughness. His ability to get up after big hits and act like it doesnt bother him. Has to be unnerving for a defense.

Tough but not stupid like Roethlisberger. He knows when to take a hit and when to GTFO of the way. To be honest, he just might have the best pocket awareness and footwork in the NFL. He never freaks out. Sometimes he takes a little step to the side and it's the difference between getting planted and not being touched at all.

what about his rocket lazer arm.
Yeah, you notice how nobody complains about his wobbly passes anymore or that he can't pass in the wind?

I wouldn't call it a rocket laser but he's become very accurate on his short passes. He always threw a good long ball.

This has got to be the biggest difference in his game between last season and the one before!

I just could not believe the amount of times he was that 1 step from having a negative play and making them into Hugh 20+ yrd gains!

There had to be 10 such instances in the NFCCG vs the 49'ers

Even when he was struggling mightily early in his career, Eli seemed to be able to shake off bad plays, quarters, halves, games etc. and to keep fighting. He never seemed to allow himself to get into a funk. </P>


Great quality for a QB . . . . . .</P>

He has so many positive traits that we can talk about but trust, resiliency and tougness have become his tradrmark.
There is no quit in this guy and he makes those around him better players.

Eli Manning is a great leader and it is wonderful to see how he has developed since arriving in NFL.

When the game is on the line, I wouldn't want any other QB but Eli. The Man is Money in the 4th Quarter.

I always knew that Eli was mentally resilient, shaking off criticism from the NY media and never truly getting discouraged the way anyone else would no matter how dire the situation is, but it wasn't until the NFCCG against SF that he truly showed how physical he is as well. The hits he took would have completely melted the game of Brady or Rodgers. It takes a certain quality to produce in such adverse conditions; that's why Eli is a superior QB.

Did you happen to see the game against GB a few years back when he played with a separated shoulder?

Not to be nitpicky...but he has shown his toughness all along, IMO. He didn't get to be the NFL active QB with most consecutive starts by being a whimp.

Homely and socially awkward are his best traits and keep him stable in the fourth quarter

Well...it is the offseason...but keep your spoon handy. Maybe you'll get lucky and Eli will throw a coupla picks in the 1st game.

I'm going to say this and this may be the truth. I remember when Eli did throw the ball a lot and hardly took a sack. That is why he had a lot of ints in 010. The other years he did ok but still though it could have been better like last year.
