    All good teams have leadership from many players from various position groups.

    Whether or not Eli Manning should have been the one saying this isn't really the point.

    The point is that we have some evidence (FINALLY) that Odell may be taking a leadership role. And in a locker room that is clearly disfunctioning... Don't we need as much leadership as we can get?

    And the fact that it is coming from a player that needs to mature a bit... Isn't this a good sign that he may be starting to grow up?

      Eli's daddy wanted to see a Pats vs Giants epic SB in 07. He wanted to see his son take out Brady and Belicheck in the SB and not the AFC championship game.

          Rivers is a good QB but I like SB wins.

          Thanks Eli.

            You can never have enough leaders, but with that said, Eli is not your typical quarterback from a personality standpoint.

            I get the feeling that all Eli wants to do is play. He's not into all the nonsense.

            He's a leader by his actions of always being ready to play.

            As for Apple. All his crap should be done off line.

              That's probably the only category that he has on Odell. What about tds and receiving yards?? I know you and that other poster arent high on Odell and that's fine but lets not make things up either. Odell still holds alot of records for a wr first 3 yrs in the league and it looks like he was on his way to another solid yr until his season ending injury. A straight up trade is comical and shouldnt be taken serious.

                Exactly! He didn't want his son to play for the Chargers because he didn't believe winning was a priority for them. Now refer back to your question why Rivers haven't won any Super Bowls?

                  Because he ain't clutch and that's that.

                    Never doubted that Eli came to play. Can't you say that about all veterans? Fair or not, coaches expect more from the QB, especially when they make a **** load of money.

                      Cool. I just don't expect more from my diva WR than my QB who's been in the league for 14 years. Eli never was a leader in that way.

                        So? Then why would you expect it?

                          Eli wouldn't have won a Super Bowl either with the Chargers. Eli's daddy knew this and I don't blame him not wanting his son to not play for a ****ty *** franchise like that.

                              That Chargers team was stacked with talent from 04 to 09ish. They were the best team in football in 06 with a hof te and hof rb and had their chances in 07 and 09 post season as well. Its not like the Chargers were scrubs during the prime Rivers era.

                                Read my initial comment. It's too bad that we expect more from our WR than our 14th year veteran.
