back in week 17 when I said Eli Manning was the best Quarterback in football...

That joke is getting less and less funny by the minute.

Im not saying Eli Manning is better than Tom Brady, but Eli Manning is playing better than Tom Brady since Week 14, former Super Bowl-winning quarterback Trent Dilfer, now an NFL analyst for ESPN, said on ESPN radio. Hes playing the best at quarterback of anybody in football. This is as good a quarterback matchup as youll find, and Eli Manning has the advantage right now.

What I don't care for is the freakin' NY Daily News claiming Eli is better than Brady and the backpage dedicated to planning the parade.

I RARELY if ever agree with Craig Carton, but this morning he was putting the media in it's place about this. He said it's one thing for fans to beat their chests and say they're going to win, but sportswriters are supposed to be unbiased. We must look like absolute tools in NE. I hope they realize its the media and not the Giants organization.

You were the one that said noone would believe you until one of the dumb "talking heads" caught on.

Of course you're the first to post a quote of this nature.

Aaron Rodgers, among others, is still better than Eli. Not that that matters, but since you brought it up...

I agree, for once he's absolutely right. Leave the unrealistic ****iness to us, we do it better than the media.[:P]

I don't really see your point about me posting the quote. The quote exsists weather I post it or not.

As far as who's better than Eli. You're welcome to your opinion.

It's what the NY media does, nothing more or less. They vomit, we read.... and react

Honestly the media here in Boston did pleanty of chest thumping leading up to the 07 SB. They all looked like tools in the end and are avoiding making the same mistake again. No brownie points for that.

The New York media should be a little more even handed but its still early. There a going to be 10 million opinions heard before kickoff.

The BEST QB in football? The hottest MAYBE.. not the BEST... He is the best QB with a D behind him in football...

What I mean is he doesnt have to be perfect he can make a couple mistakes and has a D capable bailing him out. I dont think Brady, Brees, or Rodgers can say that.. (we sure know that was true for his brother for all these years NO D.)

Now put say Brees,Brady or P Manning on the Giants since say 2007... I say you guys be going for a 5th SB Title in a row right now with ANY of those three.

Any idea where the Giants D ranked this season?

Ohhhhhh you were talking about the playoff run only, My mistake....

But... wouldn't that make the Giants Defense "hot" rather than Quarterback who's been doing it all season?

Spoken like somebody who has only watched the Giants play in the playoffs this year. The Giants defense was brutal all year. Eli carried the Giants just like the other great QB's carried their teams. FYI, The Giants gave up more points than the Patriots this year even though the Patriots gave up more total yards.

Eli WAS this team all season long. Poor defensive play, no running game, decent protection for the most part, but far from perfect. And honestly, the biggest difference has been the fact that he has pretty much eliminated the critical game-changing mistakes. Without Eli playing the way that he did, this season would have been a scary one for the Giants.

Why must Eli always be compared to someone? Peyton, Romo, Rivers, Brady....

The fact that they even mention Brady tells you all you need to know about Eli. You won't hear someone say, "I wonder if Alex Smith thinks he's as good as Brady."

Who cares? He's Eli Manning, Giants quarterback. How about the media just talk about his career, and not about how his career stacks up with Brady.
