      I could not give a flying furry one if Eli is elite or not.

      It's wholly subjective, media coined term, it means jack diddley squat.

      He's our QB and I for one am grateful.

      He's taken us to the big one twice, he'll take us to the big one two or three more times before he hangs it up.

      That either makes him elite or it doesn't ........... either way, you'll never confuse me with someone who gives a ****.
      But people like their little words.

      • I didn't check the entire thread, but has anyone mentioned that in the same article, Dan Fouts disagrees with Phil?



        But Hall of Fame quarterback Dan Fouts -- also appearing on the show -- disagreed with Simms’ assessment of Manning.

        “You can’t spell ‘elite’ without ‘Eli’. The pressure situations that Eli has thrived in over his short career in my mind make him an elite quarterback," the former Chargers quarterback said. "Because that is when you’re judged. How well you do when the pressure is on, when you’ve got to win the game. And all you have to do is look back at his two Super Bowl wins and the way he beat the Patriots.”

            Then he eventually lost the starting job to Hoss.

            Me thinks he still burns up inside and has some animosity towards the Giants.

              Yes but that kind of talk doesn't grab the ratings.

                  jealous my foot, he was injured.

                  he had the best SB performance of any QB, (not just in the 4th qtr when the other team is tired and in soft zone with a lead)

                  when Simms went 22-25 during SB XXI 2 incomplete passes were flat out drops and 1 he threw away to avoid a sack. he was perfection. no QB will ever touch his SB performance.

                      Yes, but it ended ugly between him and Gmen.

Eli would have thrived with that O line and run game. Heck, if Eli Manning were the QB back then, Mark Bavarro may have put up Gronkowski numbers. Our O line and run game was so great that when Hoss, a guy that ran a 4.28 40 took over, he rarely had to run.

                        I think Phil Simms would have had issues with this system under Gillbride. I am not saying that he would not have gotten it but it would have taken him longer than Eli. Heck, it took Phil awhile to get the system he was in down and that one was simple as it gets.

                        I am not spewing angst at Phil but in my opinion, Eli is a better QB.
                        Phil threw for 4000 yards before Bavaro was on the team. His top pass catcher had 48 catches that season.
                        And no insult but Eli doesn't have the intestinal fortitude to have played for Parcells back then. Takes a unique guy to deal with Bill.

                          and yet if eli throws 1 td the whole game you all call him elite and best player on the team. come on now be fair
                          It works both ways. If Eli had that defense with the greatest defensive player of all time, that running/play action game, HOF coach in Bill P. and possibly the greatest coach of all time in Bill B., do you really think Eli wouldn't possibly equal or exceed what Phil did? Eli has shown he probably could have taken the hits QB's did then. Maybe Phil wouldn't have been so accurate in this receiver option route offense and maybe Eli would be more accurate in the receiver single route offense Phil played behind.
