    That was a great read.

    I think Eli is gonna show something special this year....he knows his time is limited.
    "Sir, I was wondering: did you happen to catch the professional football contest on television last night?"
    "No...I didn't."
    "Oh it was most exhilarating: the Giants of NY took on the Packers of Green Bay and in the end the Giants triumphed by kicking an oblong ball made of pigskin through a big H. It was a most ripping victory."

      David Carr is the man
      If you've never played your opinion is invalid

        Great read, thanks YA. This is EXACTLY why I wanted the Giants to draft a QB this past draft. I feel the right prospect can learn so much behind Eli with his excellent discipline and work habits.
        David Carr was an excellent example of why you don't want to draft a QB when the need is imminent. He has credited his some of his brothers success to teaching him how to approach the Pro game the way Eli and the Giants do.

          HA! I mock the comments sections' attempt at an Eli thread!

            If Eli wasn't comfortable with a play, he talked to the offensive coordinator, and it was taken out.

            wonder if its the same with Mac

                      no....he said its not Eli's responsibility but it doesnt mean Eli wont do it or that Webb cant learn from just being in the room, taking notes, listening, looking etc.

                        Agreed and an unusually good article.....
                        No one remembers who came in second.

                          yeah ... as if there is any way to avoid it from happening

                          and no coach did not say that ... he said it is not Elis job or responsibility ... which it is not ...

                          starting in a few weeks these guys will be spending more time together than they will be with their own families until Jan ... there is absolutely no way possible to avoid the things Carr mentions from happening ... zero

                              obviously hard to tell in their underwear with no pressure applied ... but his mechanics, arm strength and accuracy look fantastic

                              if I may say so ... better then Eli looked at this point in his career ... that means pretty close to nothing at this point but is also all I have to go on

                              he has size and swagger ... commands the huddle very well ...

                              if it turns out he has a little ice water in his veins and can stand up to some pressure we may have a diamond in the rough here

                              he is the only Manning back up I have ever been impressed with since Eli has been here

                              plus he already carries himself like a pro ... seems like a really good kid
