WTF does elite mean?
I could not give a flying furry one if Eli is elite or not.
It's wholly subjective, media coined term, it means jack diddley squat.
He's our QB and I for one am grateful.
He's taken us to the big one twice, he'll take us to the big one two or three more times before he hangs it up.
That either makes him elite or it doesn't ........... either way, you'll never confuse me with someone who gives a ****.
Maybe Phils jealous of Elis success....and the fact that hes a few tds away from breaking his record. Didnt Phil say Eli is elite after superbowl 46? I could be wrong
and another thing Simms knows what elite play is.
• 88.0% completion rate (Super Bowl record)
• 150.92 passer rating (Super Bowl record)
Simms is jealous Eli has 2 rings as QB, when he had to sit out and watch Hoss finish the job the second time around.
Then he eventually lost the starting job to Hoss.
Me thinks he still burns up inside and has some animosity towards the Giants.
Actually, Phil Simms does call Eli Manning "the elite one" in Madden 13. LOL
I didn't check the entire thread, but has anyone mentioned that in the same article, Dan Fouts disagrees with Phil?
But Hall of Fame quarterback Dan Fouts -- also appearing on the show -- disagreed with Simms’ assessment of Manning.
“You can’t spell ‘elite’ without ‘Eli’. The pressure situations that Eli has thrived in over his short career in my mind make him an elite quarterback," the former Chargers quarterback said. "Because that is when you’re judged. How well you do when the pressure is on, when you’ve got to win the game. And all you have to do is look back at his two Super Bowl wins and the way he beat the Patriots.”
