    You want in?

    For the record, I agree with Simms. Elite QB's have an occasional bad game. Eli likes to string a bunch of them together pretty much every year. Too inconsistent to be considered elite IMO.
    I already raised the ante to 50 by COB tomorrow. LOL

      • I don't get this. Phil always defended Eli even prior to the first Super Bowl. This offseason he said Eli was a first ballot HALL OF FAMER. There's something wrong with Eli these past few game. I don't understand how his play could regress so badly for a string of games this long. He is right, the elite QBs never have this many bad games in a row. I don't think Eli has had this many bad games in a row since the Vikings, Redskins, Bills, Bears string of games in 2007.

        Is Eli injured? Maybe, but we will never know. To me, Eli isn't passing the eyes test which tells me something isn't right.

          Are you kidding?
          That's the smartest thing he's ever said!
          Admit nothing. Deny everything. Make counter accusations.

          • I'm glad Simms said this. Good move. Light a fire under Eli's ***.

            He seems to do best when people question or doubt his elite status. Remember when the entire world laughed at his "I'm in Brady's class" comment? That lit a fire under him.

              So you're saying that he hasn't been trying enough.

                  I don't think the fact that it's Phil Simms saying it makes it any worse or less/more valid than any other talking head.

                  Players come and go on the Free Agency Merry-Go-Round, but the N.Y. Giants will always be here!

                    I'm the one who said that. It just seems like some the super Simms homers (like Morehead, but in this case i'm not talking about Morehead because he's not like this) want to rub it in the face of all the Eli homers because secretly they don't want Eli to succeed...

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

                    • I don't think there's much to debate about. Eli's in a slump. It happens to the best of players. If people thought Eli became a lesser QB because of this hiccup he's having, then I'd respectfully disagree. Eli's still the man - and it would be dangerous for anybody in the NFL to underestimate him. He possesses all the tools he needs to win, and he has consistently shown us that over his career. Maybe he is a little more prone to bouts of being off his game than other players - but that's just part of the game.

                      Lets take our losses like men, enjoy the victories as they come, and appreciate one of the most interesting eras of Giants football.

                          I'm saying he likes proving his doubters wrong. And clearly, Simms is doubting him by saying he's not an elite. This will hopefully get him to play better, as it has done in the past.

                              That should add at least 10 more pages.

Rodgers, Brady, Brees, (Peyton) Manning don't need their fanatics to dance around their stats and pick and choose certain things that make them considered to be elite. With those guys it's a lot more clear cut than it is with Eli. It's business as usual to see a 100+ efficiency rating at the end of the season from them. For Eli it would be more of a shocker because he's never done it before. He makes too many mistakes in regards to turnovers and accuracy compared to them. His play during our Super Bowl runs is pretty much how these guys play every week for the most part.

                                He has the capability, but lacks consistency.
                                I also rarely see those guys having to chastise their receivers for not being on the right page and running wrong routes. QB play can not solely be judged by stats because personnel and system have a lot to do with it. A good example is Kurt Warner who was amazing running that West Coast offense and sucked in Gilbrides system!
