I had a debate with my brother-in-law who is a big Eagles fan yesterday. He feels that Eli Manning is overated and that the main reason for his success is because of the crop of quality RB's & WR's he has at his disposal. He thinks that if you put an average NFL QB on the Giants he would be successful.
And furthermore he feels that if Vick was on the Giants they would have won the Super Bowl last season also. And if Eli was on the Eagles he would have won around 4 games.
When I argued the 15 4th quarter TD's, the come-from behind wins, and the Super Bowl wins he felt the Giants defense & O Line had more to do with it than Eli.
Clearly he hates Eli and doesn't watch much Giants games. But the part about the defense does have some truth in it. After SB 42, I felt Tuck (the whole Dline for that matter)deserved the MVP and not Eli. But no one can deny what he has done in both playoff runs. what do you guys think?
