  • Egals fan and Eli

    Was having dinner the other night with a buddy and his friend. My buddy is technically an eagles fan, but he really isnt a football fan.

    His friend is a big Egals fan, and the converstation got around to Eli, and the "elite" stuff.

    This guy just hates Eli. Says hes average at best, if he didnt have a good defense he would never win, the only reason he had a good season this year is his receivers, etc.

    I asked him what QBs were better. He said the ususal: Brady, Brees, Rodgers, Big Ben. I agreed, and asked who else? Took him 5 minutes of thinking, then he says Stafford.

    Now, I know Stafford is good, but I asked him by what objective measurement he could possibly say Stafford is better than Eli at this point. I mean the guy just had his first winning season? He gave a lot of BS answers; better arm, he's gonna be 10 times as good as Eli, blah, blah, blah.

    So I asked him if he thought the Giants would be better off Sunday with Stafford instead of Eli. He says absolutely, Stafford is in Brady's league but Eli isnt. Predicted that Eli will throw 4 pics on Sunday.

    Now, I think I'm a realist, and I know Eli is not the best, in the top 10 right now, and close to top 5. But you'd rather have a qb that has never won a playoff game play in the SB instead of Eli? Seriously?

    I hear this stuff constantly - it just amazing how some peeps just HATE Eli, and no matter what he does, will never give him any props.

    Guarantee if we win Sunday, this guy will have 50 excuses how this 2 time superbowl winner still stinks.

    He sounds like a bitter Eagle fan.




    The conversation should have ended the second he said "Eli is average at best"





    Giants fan since the early 80s

        Why wouldn't an Eagle fan hate Eli? If I was an Eagle fan I would hate that the Giants had a HOF bound champion QB. Heck, the Eagles have never had a QB even close to as good as Eli and I've hated all of them.

            Even if you include Stafford (which is crazy), that's only 5 QBs ahead of Eli. Being # 6 is pretty darn good.




            Funny that he didn't put Vick ahead of Eli.

              You agreed to Ben being better than Eli? What planet do you live on?

                    Monday Eli will be better ;-)

                      They have nothing else do to since they did not even make the playoffs.

                        It's tough for them to come around.....but critic after critic are caving like houses of cards.....W after W.....I love it......hate to admit it but I have two friends who are die hard Jets fans and my jaw hit the floor last week after listening to years an years of Eli bashing from them each admitted separately that Eliis elite and has been the best QB in the NFL this year.....I was left speechless that they finally came around after being notorious Eli haters....proof is in the pudding......hopefully that puddingtastes better Monday morning....

                          so arguably he thinks that a top 6-7 QB is average even though this period of football probably has the most prolific QBs out of any other time period?

                          What a fool

                          just tell him: CRRRRYYYY EAGGGGLEEEESS CRRRRRYYYYYY
