  • Eli isn't an "Athlete"????

    NFLN PBP man Mayock or whatever his name is [Not Nesslar] said Eli isn't an athlete, he's just a very good QB. When Eli ran that ball and only got a yard. I liked Nesslar's remark that "Well he was fast enough to beat those guys out to the sideline".

    It's sad how today everyone thinks a guy is only good if he's "fast" when that's not the case at all. Being fast doesn't make you a better athlete than a slower guy. Dumb statement but there's tons of them being thrown out in every sports telecast daily.

    I don't know which is which but 1 of them seems like a complete idiot. As if he was reading from a teleprompter full of wrong info. As much as I hate to say it I would rather have Aikmen and Buck or even Collinsworth.

      Mayock was a safety with the Giants and is not only a game analyst but a draft analyst for the NFL Network. Scary isn't it?

        He's an idiot. Eli is a world class athlete. He may not be a gazelle but that doesn't define an athlete.
        No one remembers who came in second.

          Mayock is one of the best in the business. I dont think he meant it as an insult. I think he was saying Eli is a pocket passer, which he is. Eli is not a scrambling QB, or a running QB.

              +1.. I could have sworn this was obvious
              Don't take it personal, we're just debating.

                Agreed. This didn't seem to come off as an insult to me. I think he nicely put that the Eli was better than Cam within that same comment.

                  +1 You hit the nail on the head there.

                    I think his point was that Eli doesn't try to win games with his legs.

                      So many analysts love these running QB's. Steve Young is the only borderline running QB who ever won a championship and he certainly is not a RG3/Cam/Vick/Vince Young/McNabb/Cunningham type. Who cares if these guys are exciting to watch if they don't win championships. I just don't get the appeal.

                        I think they mean he isn't athletic which Snee, Diehl, O'Hara and Seubert used to say all the time.

                          The guy flat out said "Eli isn't an athlete, just a very good QB" so I guess I took that as him saying that Eli wasn't an athlete, just a very good QB. Eli may not be the fastest and the highest jumper blah blah but to say that flat out on national TV must have been a mishap on Mayock's part.

                            Compared to me he's a great athlete, compared to Bobby G. 3, not as much. Great athletes don't necessarily make good QBs
