  • Eli's Uncanny Deep Ball Accuracy

    I haven't seen this talked about alot but his deep ball accuracy could be the best in the league right now. He has amazing touch especially on those sideline go routes. He hit Cruz in stride on that 80 yard bomb and he hit Nicks in stride several times.

    It's actually one of the things the talking heads really consistently give him credit for. When it comes to going deep (especially in the fourth quarter) no one does it better

          The best pass he ever threw was dropped. He hit Hixon in stride in the hands against the Eagles a game or two after Plax shot himself. That was the real end of that season.

          Eli threw the pass from his own 9 and it hit Hixon's hands, IN STRIDE, around the Eagles 25.

            I agree with letting Eli airing it out. Watching Eli and the offense play that way is a thing of beauty.

              not to mention, this was a good secondary we played against. 3 int's aside (although i know you can't really put them aside..) eli had 510 passing yards. .. unheard of for a giants fan the past 20 years. crazy stuff, very encouraging imo

                  He's got the tools, Nicks and Cruz and possibly Bennett can get down there and shown they can get the ball. If one of them gets single coverage they have shown they can make the Catch!

                    I think one of Eli's greatest attributes is that he is able to forget bad plays very quickly and turn things around more often than not, it seems.

                    I will not lie. Yesterday, after the 3rd pick, in which 2 were squarely on Eli...if you would have told me at that time Eli would even be considered for player of the week or game MVP, (which they don't actually have for a regular season game)...I would be very much interested in making a deal for a lot of the stuff you were smoking!

                      Simms threw for over 500 (513 I think)and we lost....the point is that when you are forced to throw that often.....you usually do need everyone of them

                        if you remember on America's game Tuck talks about asking Eli how he knows where to throw the ball and how much to put on it, eli responded by saying " I just throw it and trust my arm is gonna put it there." Nuts how accurate Eli can be sometimes on those throws

                          Having been an "Archie" fan growing up, it was natural that I was curious about his kids. Having seen both him and Peyton, I was curious to see Eli play in college. He stepped into a game that was out of hand in the 4th qtr. against WV in a bowl game as a freshmen at Ole Miss and within moments had bombed the Rebels back into the game. It was one of those "too little too late" scenarios, but the thing that was most impressive while watching that performance was the beauty of that long ball. I remember making a comment similar to Viper's in Top Gun, saying to myself, "Damn...this kid's good!"

                              The lob to Nicks was perfectly timed, perfectly placed, and perfectly thrown. Perfect.
