    Eli Manning 2011/2012 Best Season In History for QB????

    I have been thinking about this.... Did Eli maybe just have the best season any QB has ever had in history?

    Almost 5000 yards, 30 TDs, over 100 QB Rating in the playoffs and a SB Championship?

    Got overshadowed by guys like Brees and Brady having two of the best REGULAR seasons in QBing history, but neither of them won the Super Bowl.

    Eli had one of the best regular seasons of all time and won the super bowl and dominated in the playoffs and orchastrated the game winning drive in the super bowl.

    Not to mention we had the 32nd ranked running attack and 27th ranked defense this year.

    So my question is.... Has there ever been a better season by any QB, in any year, ever?

    You could certainly make the argument!

    You can definitely say it was one of the best seasons for a quarterback in NFL history. At least top 5.

    Regular season and postseason, obviously, because otherwise lots of contenders

    For the regular season, you can't look past Brady's 4800 yds, 50TDs and only 8 INTs. We all know how that ended though.

    Drew Brees' Super Bowl-winning 2009 season is possibly better -

    Regular season:
    4388 yds
    34 TDs
    11 INTs
    109.6 QB rating

    Post season:
    732 yds
    8 TDs
    0 INTs
    117.0 QB rating

    Eli Manning last season (total, including 4 playoff games):

    20 games
    6,152 yards passing
    38 TD
    17 INT
    465 completions
    752 attempts
    (61.8%)
    8.18 Y/A
    95.12 rating
    One big shiny silver trophy
    SB MVP
    Made a supermodel curse

    Not the greatest ever, but a truly HOF-level season.

    When it's all said and done, Eli will go down as one of the best ever in NFL history.

    You might be able to argue it was the best complete season for a QB ever of all the QBs who won a SB in the same year as their contending season. The Brees one in 2009 was up there.

    I do not know about best season ever but I would say top 5.

    I have to agree with you on Brees. Playing and excellent regular season, post season and winning a superbowl. Not to discredit what Eli has accomplish this season, but I think Brees does have the upper hand. But Eli's regular season through superbowl have to be top 5.
