    Because Eli doesn't put up the stats Brady does, I cannot see him overtaking him in the stats position.

      The first 7 years are indeed closer than what you would expect. Brady and Brees both turned it on after 7 years. Eli's 7th year was in 2011 and that's when he turned it on. That's why I got super excited. I was hoping that Eli would continue the trend that Brady and Brees set. Then there was 2012. I think that's why we're all overstating our disappointment. Had Eli not had a brilliant 2011 and kept the status quo, i don't think the Eli talk would have been as negative.

        I love outdated philosophy.
        I don't get your point but this theory seems about right for Eli, it took about 5 years for him to finally get it..

          Peyton is a bit ahead of the both of them.
          I'll take the INT's given our offense. Thats just part of the package.

            Eli at age 32 is a good QB, even a very good QB. He's been the QB for two Giants teams that have won SB's. This is a good thing.
            Eli at age 32 is far from a great QB and not in the league with some of the players he's being compared to in this thread.

            BTW...I love you all.
            Admit nothing. Deny everything. Make counter accusations.

                    Your words (and a strangely excessive use of the space function on your keyboard) say no.

                      You'd be very surprised. Brady didn't start putting up huge numbers until '07, before then he was much closer to the 3500yds/30td range on average.

                        The irony is that he's a much better player now, then when they won those 3 SB's. The Pats defenses however are much, much worse.

                                One thing for sure... we won't ever have to worry about any whispers that, "Eli has lost a step."
                                hahahaha... he never had it.
                                For a long QB life we know RG3, Kaepernick, Vick, Wilson, etc. are going to have to totally change their game to be effective at 36-38.
                                Eli can just be the same old Easy E.
                                Ya gotta knock on wood when you think about how injury free he's been, for the most part. For such slow feet, he makes subtle adjustments in the pocket that buy him time... on a single play, and on his career.
