  • Eli Checked to Different Plays on TD and 2 Pointer......



    Not sure if this was posted somewhere else but I came across it in an ESPN article.......I hate ESPN but I tripped over this piece and found it interesting:




    ESPN ARTICLE:




    Manning had a run called when he stepped to the line, when he realized the defense was daring him to throw to his most dangerous receiver guarded by a backup on the right hand side.




    Eli had called for the same fade route on an earlier touchdown pass to Nicks, who made a one-handed grab with a career first-stringer, Charles Woodson, strapped to his back. "Eli gives me a look," Nicks said, "and I can pretty much read his face. He trusts in me, and I trust in him. We're at the point now where I know when he's going to come to me."




    With Clay Matthews raging his way, Manning threw the required 2-yard pass to Nicks, spinning away from Matthews on delivery, and suddenly with 58 seconds left the Giants were two points short of sharing a 35-35 tie with the 11-0 defending champs. Of course Manning was charged to throw a pass on the conversion attempt; no offensive coordinator would risk his reputation, his job, on an all-or-nothing handoff to the middling likes of D.J. Ware.




    But the franchise player spotted something that benefited the franchise. Manning surveyed the Green Bay defense, raised his hands near the line of scrimmage, and started barking things in picture-Peyton form. As it turned out, Eli was making the gutsiest call of the season. "He checked to the perfect play," Ware said, "and we got in there."




    Gotta love that he's comfortable making those on field decisions with the game on the line......

        Now if this doesn't erase any doubt that he should be allowed to run the offense like Peyton does with the Colts then I don't know what else to say.....

            Im sure there's been instances where he's checked into the wrong play as well... but to do it correctly twice in that pressure situation is just flat out awesome.

                  Eli is a boss.

                  P.S. What is it with ESPN and the word "middling"?

                          Exactly, and Eli has chemistry with Nicks and Cruz and doesn't have it with Manningham. Which is why he shouldn't get a fat contract from us next year.

                            i think hes got pretty good chemistry with manningham, you always see mario catching those back of the endzone fades and what not... hes great on the "toes in" catch
