Until he is retired. Everyone can argue until his last game how good or bad he was. I for one did not get into football until I was close to age 10 and grew up with Dave Brown, Kent Graham. Danny Kanell, and Kerry Collins who was a complete statue. Eli is great in my book and those two Super Bowl runs were awesome and much appreciated. I dread the day Eli is gone and could care less what Elite is. Eli is a Champion, that is all that matters to me.

I am confident after the bye week and some rest the Giants offense gets back on track, they are not as bad as the past few weeks.

I feel the same way. With all due respect, Eli is not really consistent year to year, but he knows how to win and he is a champion. He is perfect for the giants. The same way you dont know which giants team will show up is the same way you dont know which eli might show up..

He has a point Morehead. Many fans will miss him when he calls it a career.

This whole elite discussion is so pointless now.
I got into it last year since it was the hot topic regarding the Giants and Eli himself.
Now I look at it and it's stupid.
If you don't want to call him elite because he's streaky, and throws the ball up for grabs, cool. If you want to call him elite because he has 2 super bowls and can shake off bad games, cool.
It's not going to change the way he performs and he's going to remain our quarter back whether one thinks he's elite or not.

Hah wow thanks for the insight. Is that suppose to hurt my feelings on an internet message board? Hold on let me ask my 1 year old nephew what he thinks too, he probably has more to offer in the discussion then you.

He is great, which is totally the opposite of what the talking head idiots all predicted he'd be, so they have to take every opportunity to tear him down, and thats why when he goes thru a rough patch they all pounce on him!
He has 2 SB rings...2 SB mvp's.....an impressive number of NFL records....he'll hold every Giants QB record by the time he's done....his legacy is already well on its way of being assured...and he's not done yet don't forget.
He has his loyal fans and his detractors who's minds are made up and can't be changed ....so just keep supporting him and watch him win!!!

This has been said 1000 times on this board. Whenever there is criticism of Eli someone starts the old "they won't appreciate him until he's gone" thread.

Its been done.......Its boring.

Problem is his last name is Manning and he was the first overall pick who forced his way out of San Diego which has shown to be the right move. His legacy is far beyond many with 2 Super Bowls.

why does everyone assume our next franchise QB will be a Dave brown? maybe we will get one more consistent you never know the future.

Do not think anyone said that. While it may be a passing league the chances are a bit better of finding a good QB to take the reins of course you could still have the next Dan Marino and still never win the SB.

I hope the next guy can be a little more of a dual-threat for us. At least in the sense that Luck and Rodgers are. It would help the offense slightly to be able to grab those 1st downs when the defense plays really deep.

You're nuts. The 80's were awesome.

-A Flock Of Seagulls
-My 1982 280ZX
-Ronald Reagan
-Giants 1st SB championship
-My ex wife left
-Tacos became popular
- Man was I good looking then.
-I could buy a 2 cheeseburger combo at McDonalds for $3.14.

Whats better than that ****.

Dual threats are nice as long as they are pass first and have a stronger frame.

-Rap music was better
-Had Bill Clinton
-Man I was looking good then
- Stone Cold Steve Austin and the Rock
-Gas was just as cheap
-Yankees were dominate
-Rangers won the Stanley Cup
-Braveheart

Yah I think they will find someone before Eli leaves and not bank on a Colts Luck plan...pun intended.

I'm sure the Giants will go the Favre/Rodgers route in finding our next successor. If Gilbride is still around, I don't want to even imagine what a fresh rookie QB would look like in that system.

I couldn't agree more with you. We have a good team right now when they get up for a game. I never doubt Eli, but the players around him need to rise up for him if we want to repeat.

No way. 80's.

Braveheart? Haha. C'mon you can do better than that! The 80's had Star Wars, Indiana Jones, etc. Those two alone trumps all of the 90's movies combined!
