      That's an Eli trademark.

        Yeah that's what i was saying lol. Plenty of times where i've seen Nicks just out jump his guy and snatch the ball.

          Yeah I think they're comparable, sure. Both have similar, emotionless demeanours on-field, and have been derided by their own fans and media alike.

            You know and I know and everybody else knows that if Flacco wins it all, it will not start a discussion, "Is Joe Flacco a good QB".

            It will start the "Is Joe Flacco elite" discussion. And Eli will be extensively used in the discussion. What will be difficult for some on this board is that Eli will actually be used as an example that Flacco has to meet to be considered elite.

            But since there is zero chance that you would describe Ei as Elite, you deftly sidestepped the obvious.

              Eli usually throws those kind of balls with a lot more accuracy, Flacco is just a prayer.

                I think Flacco throws a better ball than Eli, tight spiral with speed.

                  It's simple. If you thought that Eli was elite after his 2007 SB win, you better think that Flacco is also elite. Anything else is a double standard.

                    Almost everyone throws a better ball than Eli.

                    And Peyton for that matter.

                      Oddly enough, I think that's one of the reasons why Eli gets so much flak. Just because his passes don't look pretty, people belittle his skill. The whole perception vs. reality.

                        Oh for sure, definitely. It bothered me a ton prior to last year.

                          The term elite is thrown around way to much. They are both good QB's.

                            who cares? Eli is our QB and I am damn happy to have him, goofiness and all.

                              If Flacco wins the SB, will it be too early to start talking H.O.F?
