  • Eli is the guy who has to step it up this season not the wr's



    He's gonna have to adjust to throwing to smaller targets and starting hitting guys in a position that they can get some rac yardage. The guys we have more than enough speed and ability to get open and make playsso I don't want to hear any excuses from the "Eli can do no wrong" crowd. All the talk and panicof thinking weneed an all pro #1wr is proof thatpeople don't have full confidence in Manning in my opinion. The comfort lobbing the ball in the vicinity of big targets in Plax and Toomer is gone.

      Dude, be careful, you can't say stuff like that around here. I completely agree with you, and I will take it one step further and say, if you need a 6'6" tree to catch your errant passes, then you were NOT deserving of all the the draft picks we gave up to get you and you did not deserve to be the number one overall pick of the draft. A first round QB, especially the first pick of the entire draft, should be able to make all throws and make the players around him better.

        You guys are so ****ing stupid. If you dont like Eli then find a new team you crying little *****es. The guy won us a mother ****ing super bowl already... then led us to being the #1 team in the NFC the year after that. Not to mention he has never missed the playoffs since he became the full time starter. Some of you cry babies make me sick

          Nicks 6' 1"

          Burress 6' 4"


          3 inches is not that big of a difference especially with Nicks wingspan...

          I am not saying Nicks is Burress by any stretch and Im not even a huge Nicks fan but.........

          you guys sound like our receivers are 5' 5"

            So, receivers getting consistent separation, catching the deep ball, and being open is not a concern.




            Adjusting the offense to compensate for the lack of a big time deep threat,and highlight the strengths we have is not a concern.




            Eli struggled at the end, yes, but saying that he is only one who has to improve is as myopic as saying only the receivers need to improve.

                our wideouts dropped alot of catchable balls this past season. someone had a link posted in one of the threads and our widouts really screwed eli over, and he still had decent numbers. that being said eli does choke at times, it gets frustrating, but not as frustrating as watching dave brown and kent graham single handedly lose games for us, so i'm still behind eli. he does need to step it up though.

                    Who cares if someone thinks Eli is terrible? Thats what these boards are for to discuss the NY Giants. Why don't you go outside for change and take a rest from these boards. You're getting way too upset over someone's opinion.

                      This is exactly what I've been trying to say all last night and today, and getting flamed for it. I agree you 100%. It's all on Eli next year. He has to turn into a different QB, a much better one.

                          It wasn't so much Eli was leading us... more like the team was carrying Eli. if you think about it Eli was one of the weakest links on the team.. Yes I admit Eli had a great 2007 playoff run.. but other than that when has Eli showed those abilities? He has to do some major improvements this year on consistency... IMO

                            you all sound like this is your first season watching football........

                            Since Del Shofner I cant think of another "#1" receiver up to PLax...........

                            relax Eli will be fine......yes Plax made some great catches and demanded double coverage and everything but his hands were nowhere near as good as Nicks .....

                            ...and with Nicks wingspan he might as well be 6' 5"........

                            Im not saying he is Plax........but have some faith
