    ELI MANNING TOPS TEBOW IN WINNING DRIVES

    ELI MANNING TOPS TEBOW IN WINNING DRIVES

    Excerpt: "As talk of Denver Broncos
    quarterback Tim Tebow and his divine
    fourth-quarter comebacks takes hold on barstools and editorial pages, it is
    actually the Giants' Eli Manning who leads the NFL in
    game-winning drives this year.



    Of course, Manning does not have the trend-spawning signature celebration
    move of the Broncos' signal-caller, the prayerful "Tebowing." And if Manning did
    have a move, well, it would probably be a casual shrug, accompanied by a "Golly
    gee" expression.




    This is Manning: understated, not particularly emotive and totally not showy.
    As a first-round draft pick in 2004, he engineered a trade to the league's
    biggest market, where he drives a Toyota, revels in bland and is still carrying
    the now NFC East-leading Giants.




    Down 12 with 5:41 to play against the Cowboys on Sunday, Manning engineered
    two touchdown drives, giving him his NFL-high sixth fourth-quarter game-winning
    drive — and his NFL record-tying 14th fourth-quarter touchdown of the year.




    He has also pulled the Giants from the brink on the road in Philadelphia,
    Arizona and New England this year.




    His fourth quarter passer rating (117.0) is 6.0 points higher than Tebow's,
    and 4.4 points higher than that of likely MVP Aaron Rodgers. And, like Tebow, he
    does seem to turn it up some in the clutch. Manning's completion percentage this
    year is 59.8 in quarters one through three, and 66.7 percent (102-of-153) in the
    final quarter." Read more...

    I found it funny that last night ESPN invented the stat of "highest QBR in the final 7:00 minutes of a game" to have something they could put Tebow #1 at.

    Still don't get how an NFL Superbowl MVP QB in NY drives a Toyota. Man needs some more sexy in his life (besides his wife)

    That's all the sexy he can take and she's quite the package.

    There are a few sexy Toyotas

    Manning is king of the comebacks, having engineered 24 fourth-quarter comebacks and 28 game-winning drives, including two in the final minutes of Super Bowls XLVI and XLII. Moreover, his quarterback rating rises to 94.2 in "late-and-close" games. With numerous comebacks, eight postseason victories and a pair of Super Bowl MVPs under his belt, few have been better with the game on the line.

    Was this article written by the most insecure Giants Homer of all time? Tebow hasn't even started a full season and Eli has been pulling them out since the last game of the 2004 season against the Cowboys.

    The author of that article would have made better use of their time if they'd gotten to the bottom of why our secondary should be called "The Burn Unit"

    Another thing Eli doesnt go 3-16 through the first 3 quarters.He also puts more then 13 points on the board as well. Could u imagine if the Giants defense gave Eli those kind of performances where he had to muster 14 points to win games
