Never offers excuses. Never criticizes his own men. Never blames anyone else... including the refs.
Takes many brutal hits and simply gets up and concentrates on the next play, never missing a snap.
After years of being poorly compared to Ben, Rivers, Romo, etc., etc.,,, ad nauseum... even by many Giant fans, he never lost his confidence and was laughed at by many because he quietly believed he was among the elite.
He had the last laugh.
He is, simply, Eli... Easy E...
And we have been fortunate to have him.
