  • Hey Eli... STOP telegraphing your throws! LOOK AROUND to see who's open first!!

    I like Eli but one of my beefs with him is that he has a tendency to 'telegraph' his throws by keeping his eyes and head in the direction of where he is going to throw the ball as soon as he gets the snap.

    The TD late in the game looked to me to be one example of this. From what I saw, it looked as if a defender was moving in the area where Eli was looking which left I think Cruz wide open and then the ball was intercepted. Bennett was also open later on when Eli made a throw to Cruz in the end zone.

    He needs to look around the field more to see who's open. And don't be afraid to pump-fake now and then more often...

    There, I feel better.

    Agreed. He needs to go through all of his reads and not just one.
    Mood: WOOF!

          The pass to Cruz that got broken up was a questionable throw from the start. Cruz had double coverage with a linebacker underneath and corner on the top, maybe Eli thought the linebacker was going to flat out. Luckily the saint defender dropped the interception. As for Eli's decision making I would say he had a good game, some poor decisions. But it didn't deter from him still making plays down the field, those two throws to Hixon and Nicks were perfectly thrown balls. Like you said, I would like to see Eli use the pump fake more often.

            A few bad throws and some real good throws. I would LOVE for Eli to use the pump fake. He started that a few years ago and it worked so well. DBs jump on his balls, unsercutting the WRs.

                  Eli scored all those points? And all this time I had no clue he could run that fast when he ran that ball back for 95 yards.

                  And I'm not *****. Just pointing out a tendency of his that if he were to improve on, would make him all the much better.

                  I like Eli and am glad we got him.

                      i mean he threw a couple bad passes staring down recievers, but at the end of the day he threw 4 tds in a woodshedding. you can't really ask for much else from a qb

                        Eli did not score 52 points, not even close.

                          Eli is the last person you need to criticize...

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

                            How about Eli scoring a TD in the 2 minute drive to end the half and going down and scoring right away after they cut it to 8 to get it back to 15. Stop the complaining!
