  • ELI MANNING--Career stats



    I have been guessing where our QB will end up on all-time lists. I figure he is at the half-way point of career. If we just double his numbers he will definitely be top ten alltime in yards and TDs. Maybe top five

      Eli's 31. I think he's beyond the half-way point. I don't see him playing into his forties.

      Yardage - maybe. I don't know about TDs though. Guys like Tom Brady and Drew Brees average around 40 per year. Until recently, Eli averaged around 22.
      He's certainly improving his strike rate but it'll be tough to crack the top 5.

        Which numbers are you doubling?[/quote]
        Yeah, he's at the 3/5s mark...

        I'd imagine he's doubling all his numbers.

          Brady and Brees didn't average that many until about their 6th-8th years in the league... Which is right when Eli has.

          IIRC, Eli has more TDs through similar points in their careers than both. I'll have to look it up.

            I'm basically thinking about total yards and total touchdowns...throw in comebacks and road playoff wins..

              He averaged 22 through the 1st could seasons then he bumped up to the 3000 yard area then 4 and now he has shown he can throw with anyone with almost 5000. That is one thihg I feel people don't take into consideration Eli has really only gotten better as he gets older, that doesn't mean I think he'll throw for 6000 next year, so if he continues his strong play later in his career his numbers will grow at an alarming rate since he is building most of them up fast now instead of evenly throughout his career. I don't thik he'll finish top 5 but with some luck he could be in the top 15 range.

                Through their first 7 seasons as a full season starter (this disregards the rookie seasons of all three, but counts the year Brees was benched after 11 games), here are the stats:

                EM: Yds: 26, 536 TDs: 179
                TB: Yds: 26, 364 TDs: 197
                DB: Yds: 26, 037 TD: 167

                So, Eli has a slight edge on DB at this stage in their careers for TDs and is trailing Brady by a bit, though that 50 TD season really put Brady over the top in that department, lol. Yardswise, they are all very close with a slight edge to Eli.

                Their full career (including rookie year's) TD avgs look like this (numbers in brackets disregard rookie seasons):

                EM: 23.125/year (25.5)
                TB: 25/year (27.2)
                DB: 25.5/year (28)

                Again, all very close, though Brady and Brees enjoy slight edges.

                  Breeze & Brady have a little better reg season stats but not much. If you just counting their 1st 8 seasons like Eli's stats are made up of anyway.

                    There's three guys playing right now who he will never surpass in Peyton, Brees and Brady. And he won't overtake Farve or Montana. And then Rodgers most likely. Already six guys he can't overtake. So no chance at the top five without even having to consider Young or Elway or Marino.

                      How do you know that Eli can't overtake Brady, Brees, or Peyton. They all have similar stats through similar spots in their careers, so it really isn't a stretch to say that it's possible that Eli will continue that trend.

                        Maybe he will. I think he is the next best thing after that tier. I just think they better than Eli and I don't see Eli throwing for 40+ TDs ever. Nor do I see many 5000 yd seasons especially because we like balance even though thathas probably shifted towards a bit more passing than running.

                          Here's some records he's got already

                          Most passing yards in a single postseason (1,219 yards in 2011)

                          Most road wins in a single regular season and postseason by a starting quarterback (10)


                          Tied NFL Record most game-winning drives in a season (8 in 2011)


                          Holds NFL Record for most road playoff wins (5)

                          Holds NFL Record most 4th quarter touchdown passes in a season (15)

                          Not too bad wonder what he'll have when it's all said & done.

                            I also see 5000 yards as an anomaly caused by the lockout and our poor defense (for much of the seasons , his highest yards came in the Saints and Seahawks games-both are games we lost) and running game.

                            I see bright things for the future of the Giants. I see a defense that establishes self as a top 5 defense and our running game improving. I also see Eli getting his INTs down even more and having to throw for less yards because he becomes more efficient. I see him averaging 4000-4200 yards, 30-35 TDs and hopefully 8-12 INTs.

                            We also don't run up the score so that will play a part.

                              He is great. I do think some of these records aren't really records. He had 4 games to get 1219 yards. I believe Montana had seasons where he had moreyards per game than ELi this year but only played in three games due to being the 1 or 2 seeds.

                              The old record of 14 was held by a guy who did it in 14 games right?
