Outside of the 4th Quarter, Eli has never been a "Dominate" QB. He's been great for our team, but he doesn't control games like his brother does. He's the best at 2 minute drills, but a first ballot guy has to be 60 minutes of non-stop elite. Not this bi-polar crap he goes through every November and Early December.
I can't wait til Eli retires so you guys can stop having this same old tired discussion over and over again.
ohhhh, people, people.
i'm not usually the 'i told you so type', but i'll be (unfortunately) waiting for the day Eli retires and we get so see what his replacement is capable, or more accurately, not capable of.
We seriously won't know what we had until its gone.
I agree with an earlier poster... Why would Simms even go there? But I do agree Eli is not elite. Maybe if he had more seasons like last year, but lets face it an elite QB can carry a team when everyone else is playing poorly, and we haven't seen that in the last three or four weeks for sure. Eli is a very good QB, but he works within a system.
Eli is not consistently "Elite". He has elite periods but also has periods of mind boggleing ineptitude.
I believe when his career is done this conversation will still rage but it will rage with him in Canton either way...
