  • Yes.........another Eli thread!!

    Found this blurb in one of the articles in RF's News Thread, and I found it very tellin:

    "•Eli Manning – He had a very Eli-esque game tonight. His timing with his receivers were right on cue. His throws were accurate and sharp. He would play the first half, finishing 17 for 21 with 148 yards and one touchdown."


    I remember, not long ago, when Eli had an "Eli-esque" night......it meant something completely different.
    I stopped fighting my inner demons. We're on the same side now.

      Actually I thought it was not very "Eli-esque" even when Eli is on its usually like a game of holdem where there is a few exchanges with not much action and then suddenly there is a big pot. Usually we sputter a bit and them eli casts off a long ball or makes a great throw and the game opens up.

      This was very Peyton-esq spread the ball, hit many receivers short. Move the chains.
      Just remember Kevin Love makes more money then OBJ, and OBJ also dunks better.

        I'm actually surprised there wasn't a thread complaining about Eli being ranked 5th on ESPN's best QB list.

          Eli doubters would use that term as a means to insult Eli's play.

            Well, that's playcalling and that's something completely different. This has more to do with Eli's traits as a QB...timing on cue and accurate were not considered Eli-esque just a few short years ago,

                You are right though....the playcalling was a lot different than we've seen. Lots of short yardage passing.

                              To be fair, some of us were converted after last season... I for one liked how he recognized that he had a problem in 2010 (he was a Pickmaster Extraordinaire) and went out onto some random football field in the middle of nowhere with his receivers in the middle of a freaking lockout to work on it.

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