this seasons average 295.5 passing yds per game beats the average 251.2 of 2009

not too shabby

also...

Eli was the first NFL QB to throw at least four touchdown passes of at least 72 yards since Kurt Warner (STL, '000, six).

...and
Eli was 1st NYG QB to throw at least 4 TD passes of 72+ yds since Earl Morrall (4 in ')65.

and a fine OC as well. A lot of you would have enjoyed reading a thread on Dallas board last night where some of their fans wished they could trade their OC for Gilbride. I kid you not. I think he has done a pretty good job for us.

You know me, always the unintentional provocateur - 2 of those passes were 7 yarders that Cruz turned into monster plays.

I have to agree....

I have lots of friends from all over the country who are fans of lots of different NFL teams.....and the trend I see throughout all of them is hatred for their coordinators ....offensive and defensive.....its a common thread with all fans of all teams

I think Gilbride has done a fine job for the most part .... we have one of the best passing attacks in the league

I'm gonna get flack for saying this but I'm still not high on KG....BUT....with that being said......I absolutely loved the ballz he showed chucking it on 1st and Goal with 4 minutes left and up by 10.....took huge ballz......I"ll be honest they were coming at our endzone and I looked around and said take three knees and kick the FG and I'll be happy but THEY WENT FOR THE KILL AND GOT IT!!!!!! That's what this team has been missing on both sides of the ball all year but they showed it on both sides last game......aggressive kill shots.....sacks and TD's......LOVED IT!!!!!!!</P>

I guess no other "elite" Qb has plays like that when their yards are posted, huh?

I guess Brady threw all 99 of his 99 yard pass to Welker this year in the air, huh?

If YAC s were not such an integral part of every passing game--and therefore an integral part of every QB's game--there would not be a stat measured to account for them.

Your point, though accurate, is irrelevant since that is a part of every other QB's stats. It's the comparison of one QB to other QBs --who are all measured statistically in the same manner -- that's the relevant issue.

On the other hand Cruz, Nicks, MM have dropped long distance passes right in their bread baskets. Cruz more than a couple of times.

I don't know if it was just leading the league this year, or an all time record, but Eli had 8 td passes with under 5 minutes left in the 4Q.</P>


Also, Eli's 4933 yards passing is not only a franchise record, but it's 6th all time. Though, with the way passing has gone, I wouldn't doubt if that'll be 12th-15th after next season.</P>

i think u need to take a step back and re-evaluate ur opinion of rosie. i did and i found that really i was just trying to push my opinion on him. he erally has never said anything drastic or like intentionally and purposefully crazy. the comment thats quoted here he was kind of messing around but even still he did make a valid point. he just has a slightly diff opinion and hes actually kind of valid. i took it as a threat to my knowledge like he was saying i was wrong but he really doesnt do that, he just shares his opinion which is what we're all here for.

cruz played a HUGE part for the passing games success.

That is a career mark not a season mark....Took Unitas 211(not sure if that includes playoffs) games ...Eli has played in 121.....By time Eli has 211 games he will have shattered that mark....Remember he also has more than Peyton at this point who also has more than 200 games.....Pretty remarkable when it gets put in perspective.
