    Re: EVEN THE EGIRLS REALIZE ELI IS ELITE!!

    ^ I didn't like how quickly people turned on Eli either, but things DID change this year. The number of perfect pinpoint passes he threw this year was off the charts. Also he didn't force as many bad throws under pressure as he used to and took sacks rather than force something.

      [/quote]Yes and no. He is taking more sacks and eating the ball more. but the receivers are on the same page this year for once. Victor and Eli were money and Mario didn't have half of the mental mistakes that he had last year. I still saw Eli throw off his back foot. This is the NFL. You can't make it in this league if you can't throw off your back foot! Dont understand why this bothers people so much. It's like they hear everybody else complain about it and just use it as an excuse to whine. Its okay to throw off the back foot. Eli has had great years before doing it.

      One thing though is that pretty much everyone of his deep throws were right on the money this year. I attribute that to full confidence and trust in his WR's. The deep ball has def improved for Eli.

      He had a career year before 10'. I know a lot of int's were thrown in 10' but he still had a great season. It's human nature to only focus on the negatives and forget the positives. It's not like Eli sucked for years, and all of a sudden a light bulb went on in 2011. He has been great for us. How quickly we forgot. Thats what bothers me the most. I didn't get all the backlash last season.

      Eli is seriously a perfect study into the human psyche.


      That it took two SB's for him to get respected, and say he throws a bunch of int's next year, people will jump on the hate bandwagon once again. That is what disturbs me.

        Well people think it is so cut and dry all the time and it isn't. The way I see it is that Eli is a gunslinger and if he sees a spot he is going to try and fit the ball in it most of the time it seems to work out great or at least not turn into an INT. But then you get years like 2010 where he had 5-6 throws straight out of the hands of WR and were INT so the if you add 4-5 more throws for just awful decisions(every QB is gonna have a few even Brady had a 4 pick game this season) then he ends up around 15-20 INT which is exactly about how many he throws on any given year. Plus add the fumbles he lost that year and that is why it was so bad but imo everyone blows the picks out of proportion when it comes to the 2010 season. Basically if your expecting Eli to throw under 10 picks then your watching the wrong QB. I also agree with the comments about receivers stepping up this year it is the 1st time he legitimately had 2 starting WR's since Plax shot himself.

          This is kind funny to listen to their fans bash the dog beater and the management and finally come to terms that Eli is a elite QB. Makes one laugh actully especial since all these pukes around the league and the arm chair QB's of the football sports programs at the beginning of last season were questioning Eli's opinion that he should be in the top 5 QB's

          My how the tune has changed
          [/quote]The thing is, nothing has changed in Eli at all this year basically since the first SB win.

          All it took is for him to throw a bunch of picks and everybody (Giants fans included) turned on him like wild animals. Saying he was terrible and that he would try to do everything to lose games for the Giants.

          Never have I seen so much disrespect for a SB champion. From his own fans! So when we start winning a few games, they realize how important Eli is again and all of a sudden they are his biggest fans.

          After 2010 I was happy that at least we ended the season by beating the redskins, and that the iggles were dumped in the wild card round. I was calling Eli "The Interception Machine" in 2010 (for obvious reasons). I didn't think he outright sucked at that point, but I thought to myself that he should work on that in the offseason if he wants to keep his job. And, to his credit, he did. That's the hallmark of a good NFL player (hell, any good professional athlete). He recognized his mistakes, and corrected them. And now he's known as Eli-te.

          I'm Commander Shepard, and this is my favorite team in the NFL.
