  • I remember reading this in 2007. Always stuck with me.

    So, what did we learn from the Giants' loss to the Cowboys? It's this: Eli Manning is just not as good a quarterback as Tony Romo. Frankly, it's doubtful he ever will be. For the near future, the Giants will have to overcome that deficiency twice a year.

    Funny how things worked out.

    Yup. Now, its almost universally accepted that Eli is superior to Choko Romo.

            That's what I'm saying. Lol. The guy was prob doing that interview with the ring Eli won him on his finger
            Football has been very, very good to us.
            After losing seasons 2013-15, the giants put up 11 wins in 16.. they are on way Back
            But for now we can console ourselves with this fact-

            # of Super Bowl victories since 1985:

            1-Chicago, St. Louis, Tampa Bay, Indianapolis, New Orleans, Seattle
            2-Washington, Green Bay, Pittsburgh, Baltimore
            3-San Francisco, Dallas, Denver
            4-New York Giants!!!
            5-NE
            Let's make it 5 in 2016 so we can be on a LINE NE again!!!

                Even if romo somehow manages to win a few rings prior to retirerment ( not likely ) he will NEVER be able to say he defeated an unbeaten team in the SB.... As a matter of fact no QB will prob ever accomplish that feat again

                  Good find. Although, it does appear this guy's tenure at ESPN was short lived after these comments. Maybe I am wrong, but I cant find much of his articles after Feb 2008. Maybe, they got the clue too.

                    And because Romo was more consistent throughout his career.

                    I don't agree with Toomer saying that Eli is better, but his statement isn't complete blasphemy as some here would lead you to believe. Romo's a good QB also. Let's not treat him liked chopped liver.

                        And I believed it. If you had offered Romo for Eli straight up at the beginning of 2007 I would have jumped at it. Glad I'm not in charge.
