  • Eli Manning's toughness impresses 49ers

    http://www.sacbee.com/2012/10/14/490...l#mi_rss=49ers

    Excerpt: "The beating the 49ers gave Eli Manning last Jan. 22 was written all over the quarterback's once-white jersey.

    The 49ers hit him 18 times, including six sacks, the most Manning had absorbed in any game last season. By the end of the NFC Championship Game, grime speckled his face, his left shoulder was a dingy gray, and his left wristband and arm were caked in Candlestick Park mud.

    The problem for the 49ers is Manning kept getting up.

    "A lot of people don't give him the respect he deserves," said Manning's chief tormentor that day, defensive end Justin Smith. "I think he's definitely one of the top three, four quarterbacks in the league. … We're going to have to have the same philosophy going into this one that we had in that last one – hold him down."

    The Manning vs. Smith & Co. battle is such a central theme in today's game that the two sides began fighting it days ago." Read more...

    It'll be interesting to see if the Niners stick to their usual gameplan in this one. Perhaps they'll mix up their coverages and try to confuse him.

          From the perspective of the 49ers, what they do works pretty well. I think they will come out playing their game until we make them change during the game.

            Eli will once again be the key (no surprise there). If Nicks is healthy, the option route for Cruz should be open.

              Got to agree Roanoke, these guys are going to stack the box and get after Eli, I just hope that Gilbride has a little something that will throw them off their game plan.

                Smith said hold. Interesting.

                  That NFCCG sealed away any doubt I had about Eli being the greatest QB to ever play pro football aside from Joe Montana. Anyone that can start in the NFL can make the great throws given enough time in the pocket. But very few QBs could stay completely calm in the pocket in the face of such pressure. A lot of QBs take off running. Some just crumble under the pressure. The Great Tom Brady looks pretty average when facing the heat. Not Eli. If he's on his game, he can't be knocked off it. Pure and simple.

                    Eli's best friend is our running game. I pray we can establish it. If he has to drop back 60+ times again it's going to be a long day for Eli.
                    Because of all of the effort and examination being poured into these predictions, the draft is a robust market that, in the aggregate, does a good job of sorting prospects from top to bottom.1 Yet despite so many people trying to “beat the market,” no single actor can do it consistently. Abnormal returns are likely due to luck, not skill. But that hasn’t stopped NFL executives from behaving with the confidence of traders.

                      Eli was very impressive taking big hits last time we played them.

                        Whoa, whoa, whoa.....

                        John Unitas and John Elway thinks you're way out of line.

                          Johnny Unitas? You mean that guy that threw fewer 4th quarter TD passes than Eli that one time?

                            really you don't think it was harder to throw years ago when you could take a QB's head off ??? todays nfl is geared toward passing. if Simms had this protection from the league he would be a HOFer

                              I still wonder where all this "protection" for the passer the league is apparently giving out actually is. Eli actually takes the hits and gets back up and shakes them off. That's what puts him above the QBs playing today, and in that tier of legendary QBs.
