  • definition of an Elite quarterback

    According to Bayless and other Anal-less ...Eli is not an elite quarterback because he lacks luster and because of his ahhh shucks attitude on and off the field.

    What a lame freakin excuse to not consider Eli elite.To me its all about the stats, tuffness and knowing the game.....Eli has showed all of that in each and every game. I didn't realize that having Bruce Willis characteristics was needed on the football field.....what a bunch of chit

    I could care less about some ambiguous definition of a single word.

    If Eli never reaches the "elite" status by general population's standards, but hoists up 4 or 5 trophies, that's quite alright with me.

        Re: definition of an Elite quarterback

        This obsession people have with defining Eli as elite or not elite is ridiculous. Does it really matter? We don't need him to be recognized as elite, we just need the TEAM to win Super Bowls!
        My goal had been to win a championship, work toward the Hall of Fame, have my jersey retired by the team and I`d go in as a lifelong New York Giant, but I`m now resigned to the fact that this won`t happen. -- Michael Strahan, just when you think you're down...

          If you use passing stats alone, Phillip Rivers is elite, and Bart Starr was not.




          I think anelite QBmotivates his teamto never give up, because they believe they have a chance to winanygame, against anyopponent.




          If that applies to Eli Manning, then yes, he's elite.

            Well, let's look at the definition of Elite first to see what we're working with.

            Elite - A group of people considered to be the best in a particular society or category, esp. because of their power, talent, or wealth.

            Now what talents has Eli displayed that would be considered Elite compared to other QB's?

            Eli has shown exceptional skill with his pre-snap reads to diagnose the blitz.

            Eli has shown he can play ball with anyone in the 4th quarter and has been superior over every other QB in that regard this year.

            Eli has shown the ability to fit his passes in tight windows where only his receivers can obtain the ball at certain moments.

            Eli Manning is an Elite QB this year and this is coming from someone who is more critical of his work than others on this message board.

              that word means absolutely nothing to me

              Eli has produced and has played as well as the QBs who are considered the upper echelon players

              Ill put his toughness and durability against anyones who has ever played the position

              and his work habits ...and teaching skills are second to none

              so use whatever word you want to use

              he doesnt always look pretty doing it

              pretty doesnt win championships

                We are playing in our second SB having ridden the entire regular season on his back! He wins us another one and they need to change how they spell it....Eli-te.

                  Eli is my QB. Screw the talking heads. There isn't anyone else I'd rather have.

                    It is called jealousy. Most people do not want to admit that "Aww Shucks" Eli is that much better than their own QB. Not only have his stats indicated that he is Elite but more importantly his knack for making plays in the clutch. Every QB has a bad game(Rodgers vs. us) but it seems people make a bigger deal about Eli's downs and less of a deal about his ups. But like other people in the thread so far I don't care if some other fans or team doesn't consider him Elite because you know they will be even more mad when Eli is hoisting the Lombardi.

                        Maybe it's time to retire that word once and for all.

                        It's arbitrary. What's not arbitrary? Winning. In a world of only winners and losers, ...

                        Eli is a winner.
                        Brady is a winner.
                        Rodgers is a winner.
                        Breese is a winner.

                        Romo is a loser.
                        Vick is a loser.
                        Rivers is a loser.

                        GO JAI-YANTS!!

                              for his entire career Terry Bradshaw
                              was considered "E-literate" instead of elite.
                              they rarely even mention him for top 5 even though he has as many rings as Montanna.

                              i'd rather have the rings than "Elite" accolades .
