  • Amani is correct

    http://profootballtalk.nbcsports.com...tter-than-eli/

    If you read what he said, he wants a QB that is more consistent and throws less interceptions. Eli (and the Giants) have had problems with that until recently. Once the Eli of Tomorrow stays as the Eli of Today....no one will doubt Eli is better than Romo!

    But I would choose Eli over Romo any day

      A Cowboy fan friend of mine said it best... though he inversed the who is better than who

      "Eli is only great when it matters and in the clutch. The rest of the time he is average. Romo is great as long as he doesnt have to be clutch and is good for about 85% of the game."

      IMO that shows how Eli is better but the Cowboy fan thought that made Romo better. it is a good analysis though. There is nobody I'd rather have as my QB with 2 minutes left in the game down by 4-6 than Eli. I'd take anyone over Romo in that situation though. Romo can throw for 500 yards and 8 touchdowns and he will find a way to miraculously, single-handedly lose a game. He is the anti-clutch.
      The way Romo loses games sometimes is nothing short of miraculous. The bobbled snap, running out of bounds a yard short on a 4th down... Running past the line of scrimmage with plenty of room for the first and then throwing to an open receiver which results in a penalty... the list goes on.

        agreed. It would be great to be both but it would also be nice (even Eli said it) that if we just blow them away and win without needing to come down to the final minutes! It doesn't do my heart good =\

          Doesn't that mean they are not as bad as they were? It seems to me that Eli must be consistent enough to win 2 Super Bowls in four years.

            He caught some hell from callers on Sirius today!! He was getting pissed and giving right back.




            What people are forgetting is **** like this is what put the chip on Eli's shoulders LAST year and 2007. That's the Eli I want!!! The one that had that look in his eye during the National Anthem!! Eli eats the critic's lunch!!




            REPEAT BABY!!!!!

            I stopped fighting my inner demons. We're on the same side now.

              Toomer appears to want to follow Tiki straight into the unemployment line

              I get that he's trying not to show favoritism, but this is ridiculous. It's an insane comparison that only holds true with stats. Crunch time is when it really matters, and there is no one else I'd want under center than Eli in that situation.

                Re: Amani is correct

                What stat did Romo outshine Eli in besides interceptions?

                Completion percentage? And this is supposed to be the mark for consistency... not 4th quarter comebacks?

                That would be almost like praising drew brees for completing 70% of his passes. You have to take for account the offense of which Tony executes. The cowboys throw a ton of high percentage passes in their offense. I see a high number of screens, dump offs, and last option checkdowns in the passing game.

                The Giants led the NFL in big plays completed downfield and ATTEMPTS. They are NOT a high percentage passing offense. It makes Eli's completion 61% all the more impressive

                Oh ok, Romo threw 6 less interceptions than Eli. That completely eliminates the 4th qtr comebacks, better passing statistics, playoff wins, and a superbowl title

                I'm highly disappointed in amani toomer

                  Re: Amani is correct

                  I used to basjh Eli's "high" throws, lack of tight spiral into the wind, and holding the ball too long.
                  But he obviously corrected these issues. Not a problem last season at all.

                    Re: Amani is correct

                    Eli has only had true interception issues in 2006, 2007 and 2010.

                    that was back when he was 25 years old, and when the team's receivers were very young. Eli is always going to have a higher number of picks. he's a gunslinger, and its the type of offense the team plays. Warren Moon would also through close to 20 interceptions a year with the Oilers, does Amani want Romo over Warren Moon? how about Alex Smith? he never throws interceptions either.

                    3 out of the past 4 seasons Eli has posted under 3% interceptions. troll harder Amani

                      Re: Amani is correct

                      Another stupid thing you constantly read from cowboys fans is that if Romo had Eli's defense, he would win a title too

                      Its the most ignorant and blind argument you read in the eli vs romo debates. People say that out of their *****. Compare and contrast the cowboys and giants defenses. The cowboys had a better defensive team, as a whole, last year. And so what if Romo wasn't able to win games because his defense collapsed down the stretch? Then that's on HIM, if we're comparing him to Eli. Eli has had some terrible performances last year from the giants D (@dallas head-to-head with romo, arizona, etc) and carried his team to a victory. Romo can't carry his team to victory when his defense fails him

                      Eli > Romo

                        Smart people stay in the game and coach. Brilliant people become GM's. The rest find work ina cess pool aka the media. No worries boys and girls. Let's get ready for the season............and if you are in a fantasy football league, Tony Romo is an excellent QB option after Rodgers and Brady and Brees are gone.

                          Re: Amani is correct

                          Statistically Romo is better.
                          He is also the bigger choke artist.

                          I'd take Romo over Eli in my fantasy league any day. However, in real life football, I want a proven winner, not a proven choke machine.

                            Good post. Where most of us Giant fans would agree that Eli is better than Romo - especially with his dominant regular season last year, we can't discount Romo being a good QB also. It's a matter of opinion at this point. It's not like we're comparing Eli to Tavaris Jackson.

                            Some of you guys go nutty when it comes to Eli.

Some of you guys go nutty when it comes to Eli.[/quote]I guess I need to go nutty lol..........so Tony Romo has been consistent at exactly what? IMO he's been consistent at piling up fantasy football stats. OF COURSE he's a very good quarrterback but he is not even close to being in Eli's league at this point. You don't win as many playoff games as Eli, on the road unless you are special especially when his weapons were no better than Romo's and arguably Romo's have been better. Has Eli had a go to guy like Witten? Has Eli had a running back to dump the ball and make a first down out of nothing? The WR's have been more or less comparable. So, we can debate this but really...........are they even close, except in fantasy football?
