this "elite" discussion is absolutely meaningless
every person you talk to has a different definition of the word as it pertains to a QB
Eli is our franchise and he will be until he is not anymore
why not talk about a topic that means something?......because this has absolutely no meaning whatsoever nor does it have an impact on how his play on the field will progress or regress
This from Pro Football Today's power ranking after week 10 games:
11. Giants: Eli Manning doesn’t have a tired arm; his arm is in a coma.
At this point, who the hell cares anymore?
I don't think the fact that it's Phil Simms saying it makes it any worse or less/more valid than any other talking head.
Here we go again. Eli will be elite one day, and not elite another day, then elite, then not. Whatever. He sucks right now. He is having one of the worst stretches in his career. Oh well. If he gets us another championship at the end of the year, he will be elite again. Im tired of this.
Corey Webster was also elite last year, and now completely sucks this year. Whatevs. Chris Johnson was elite a few years ago, now is a bust. Cam Newtown was elite last year, now sucks.
Flavor of the week.
Phil Simms can say whatever he wants but this is a good thing because this team only plays better when criticized including Eli, people were saying he's the best QB in the league, then he comes out playing like s*** hopefully this will motivate him to play better.
I wouldn't necessarily call those a bad stretch of games.
