    Re: Ben is better than Eli

    [quote user="ManningBowl"]


    Big Ben is much better then Eli.. he always has been and always will be.. He is bigger stronger and much more accurate.. Alot of Santonio Holmes catches come after a great Big Ben scramble




    Just think we could've had the beter Qb and kept the draft picks




    Did anybody see that great throw that Ben made to Heath Miller with a man right in is face... Ben can make plays that Eli could only dream of making.. He is accurate somethin Eli has never been

        This may be the dumbest point of them all. Ben has two very good receivers in Hines Ward and Santonio Holmes. When Plax went down our receivers became a very mediocre bunch. Tonight, Ben was very good, but I thought that the Steeler playcalling really helped him. Of his 21 completions, how many were little screen passes or to guys who were absolutely wide open? When was the last time you saw a Giant receiver as open as Hines Ward was on that first completion of the night? There was nobody within a 10 yard radius of him.




        [/quote]

        Seriously how do you know that WRs haven't been getting open? Do you have the sky cam for the entire game? Do you attend all the games? There's little possible way that anyone can say that our WRs get no seperation with any sort of certainty. And at what point to you give Eli the pass where maybe he's just trying to get the ball to the wrong receiver and missing the wide open guy? Again, we'll never know because we can't see the entire field every play.
        [/quote]




        Because I think it's reasonable to give Eli, or any NFL QB for that matter,the benefit of the doubt. I find it hard to believe that there are wide receivers that are getting wide open all the time and Eli just keeps missing them.

        This is what you fail to realize.. All Qb play diffrently and thats what make some better then others.. Some Qb's see the field better then others, some Qb's anticipate better then others.. Qb's like Big Ben can scramble and throw accurately on the move which allows Wr's to uncover downfield..Some Qb's can stick the ball into tight windows and throw accurately downfield... Eli lacks alot of these qualities so that is why a majority of football fans consider him a average Qb

          i'm not winning anything, he made a valid point. a point that imo ends the discussion. Plax counts for 40percent of Eli's career Td's. 6 games without plax 3 td's for eli. there was a huge drop, one can only conclude that Plax's freakish abilty was the key to Eli's success. it doesn't mean i love the steelers now. i can't name you their starting oline. i will always love the giants as long as I live,but i'm not blind.
          [/quote]




          Plax only caught 4 of Eli's 21 TDs this year.




          [/quote]

          but you do have to take into account that because plax is on the field it leaves the other WRs in single coverage on the lesser DBs...

          for example,

          Tonight Hines didnt do crap really all game except for 1 catch, but the cardinals were set on shutting him down and because of that it opened up things for holmes.

          I hope you see what im saying.
          [/quote]




          I understand but the comment made was Eli can't play without plax. He played wellagainst Seattle, Cardinals, Pittsburgh and even Carolina.




          I really think a lot of you guys try to make something out of nothing. In our last 5 games, Minnesota meant nothing, 2 games were very windy when our opponents defense didn't really have to worry about the pass, and 1 game when the o-line played horrible.







          [/quote]

          nah ive never gone on the record and said eli cant do well without plax, i was one of the idiots that thought hixon would step in and do just fine, obviously not exactly the case. The way plax plays is quite unique and theres no receiver in the league thats any where near the type that he is. Mind you im not saying hes the best wr in the league just very different.
          [/quote]




          I thought Hixon was gonna step up too. We definately lose something without Plax, but I wouldn't put too much into any of those last 5 games for the reasons I mentioned.




          In those games against Philly, they wouldn't have worried about the pass with or without Plax. You can't make a judgement off the Cowboys game because Eli nor the WRs had time to do anything. Minnesota game meant nothing to the Giants but to stay healthy.




          It's up to the coaches to make adjustments in games like the ones we played against Philly and the Giants need to bring back the screen pass.

            Thats not true at all about the philly games. The first time we played them they doubled plax in some shape or form over 70% of the time, with hixon they doubled him under 15% of the time, which allowed them to commit another player to the run. If they did that **** to plax he wouldve abused them all day, bad winds or not, Hixon wasnt able to.

                this is very true manningbowl, two things i think Eli can do better is read a defense and get rid of the ball quicker.

                  I love Eli, but he is not better than Ben. Ben can scramble and extend the plays, is more accurate, stronger and bigger, better and more accurate arm.. and has the better coaching on his side as well.

                    The first game in Philly didn't have 25+ MPH winds.




                    The defenses havethe huge advantage in games with thoses winds. They don't have to worry about a long pass and it shortens the field for them. In games like that they only need to worry about the short stuff and I don't care if Jerry Rice was playing in the game.

                        I've always said it that Eli doesn't see the field as well as other Qb's..At times he'llthrow a ball into coverage and at times he likes to stare down one reciever and then force it in the there. Another thing is Eli is just not a very accurate downfield passer.. Anything beyond 20+ yards and the reciever has to adjust.. He just can't consistently make the stick throw into a tight window.




                        Another thing people forget is that Ben has a terrible O-line who can't block anybody.. They were getting whipped by the Cards D-line..

I agree aboutPlax also there is something about him when you watch him, deceptive comes to mind, long stride, tall a bit of a sleeper maybe. Hey, the best had a hard time covering him.

                              nah ive never gone on the record and said eli cant do well without plax, i was one of the idiots that thought hixon would step in and do just fine, obviously not exactly the case. The way plax plays is quite unique and theres no receiver in the league thats any where near the type that he is. Mind you im not saying hes the best wr in the league just very different.

                              I thought Hixon was gonna step up too. We definately lose something without Plax, but I wouldn't put too much into any of those last 5 games for the reasons I mentioned.




                              In those games against Philly, they wouldn't have worried about the pass with or without Plax. You can't make a judgement off the Cowboys game because Eli nor the WRs had time to do anything. Minnesota game meant nothing to the Giants but to stay healthy.




                              It's up to the coaches to make adjustments in games like the ones we played against Philly and the Giants need to bring back the screen pass.

                              Thats not true at all about the philly games. The first time we played them they doubled plax in some shape or form over 70% of the time, with hixon they doubled him under 15% of the time, which allowed them to commit another player to the run. If they did that **** to plax he wouldve abused them all day, bad winds or not, Hixon wasnt able to.

                              The first game in Philly didn't have 25+ MPH winds.




                              The defenses havethe huge advantage in games with thoses winds. They don't have to worry about a long pass and it shortens the field for them. In games like that they only need to worry about the short stuff and I don't care if Jerry Rice was playing in the game.

                              Yea, sorry but if they didnt double Plax he wouldve made them pay in that game by beating the jam on slants, and like you've said before, eli has had good games in the wind before....

                                This may be the dumbest point of them all. Ben has two very good receivers in Hines Ward and Santonio Holmes. When Plax went down our receivers became a very mediocre bunch. Tonight, Ben was very good, but I thought that the Steeler playcalling really helped him. Of his 21 completions, how many were little screen passes or to guys who were absolutely wide open? When was the last time you saw a Giant receiver as open as Hines Ward was on that first completion of the night? There was nobody within a 10 yard radius of him.

                                Seriously how do you know that WRs haven't been getting open? Do you have the sky cam for the entire game? Do you attend all the games? There's little possible way that anyone can say that our WRs get no seperation with any sort of certainty. And at what point to you give Eli the pass where maybe he's just trying to get the ball to the wrong receiver and missing the wide open guy? Again, we'll never know because we can't see the entire field every play.

                                Because I think it's reasonable to give Eli, or any NFL QB for that matter,the benefit of the doubt. I find it hard to believe that there are wide receivers that are getting wide open all the time and Eli just keeps missing them.

                                This is what you fail to realize.. All Qb play diffrently and thats what make some better then others.. Some Qb's see the field better then others, some Qb's anticipate better then others.. Qb's like Big Ben can scramble and throw accurately on the move which allows Wr's to uncover downfield..Some Qb's can stick the ball into tight windows and throw accurately downfield... Eli lacks alot of these qualities so that is why a majority of football fans consider him a average Qb

                                The one thing that Ben has clearly on Eli is his mobility, which allows his receivers to uncover. That said, if you watched the game today, you should've seen a very notable difference between the Steelers and the Giants. How many screen passes and dump offs did Roethlisberger throw? I counted at least 5 or 6. Without Plax, our receivers become mediocre, especially when you consider that we don't have a reliable safety valve. You guys like to treat Eli as if he misses open receivers all over the place, but today I saw Ben underthrow a couple of wide open players. I also know you guys LOVE to point out that Asante Samuel almost pick from last year, but I'm sure you'll gladly ignore the pass that Dominique Rogers-Cromartie should've picked off when Ben underthrew a wide open Nate Washington.
