    I was at that game. coldest I ever was in my life.
    We had come back from being 14 down and had them pinned, then Cunningham did that and a win turned into a loss. It wasn't just a great punt, it won the game for them.
    Get well soon 80.

    What about dropped passes, Cruz and Bennett have 14 between the two of them.

    We have ran the ball 283 times good for the 9th most attempts in the league this year, hardly seems like an exclusively passing offense. Brown had 8 rushing tds, many from one or two yards out.

    I think there have been some bad games and some good games, but why blame only one person for the outcome either way. We are in first place in the division, in the upper third of all offensive categories, and getting closer and closer to another playoff birth. There have been bad throws and amazing throws, just like every other team.

    Check out this article about interceptions, might change your mind on the whole 2 to 1 ratio.

    every QB has passes dropped. there were also two potention Int's dropped in the end zone at SF and against washington that Eli threw. Have you seen how many passed Finley has dropped for Rodgers?

    Right, and how many other recieving options has Rodgers had? my point is that to say that Eli is having a sub par year just because you point out his 15 td to 11 int doesn't prove that. We are still in first place, in the top third of ever offensive category, are close to another playoff birth and division title, how exactly is that sub par? You also fail to mention the amount of pressure Eli was under during the last four games, 6 sacks from Washington through Cinncinnati, and multiple hits in those games as well. Given that he only has 13 sacks overall, you can assume that the problems in the last four games were not as simple as Eli being sub par.

    wasnt eli leading the league in yards up until like 4 weeks ago? he had a poor 3-4 game stretch. season still has 5 games yet as well. its not quite the season i expected, but i know there are like 28 other teams that would kill to have their qb play as eli has this season...theres been a lot of knee jerk reactions bc of those poor slump games imo...

    He is the one guy (other than my boy) who deserves to be in the Hall, and isn't.
    He was a Giant killer. Very special talent.

    I get the point that some insist on making - that Eli throws more picks than Rodgers and some others. I also get the fact that Rodgers would never even have tried to throw the Super Bowl pass to Tyree if he was the one that escaped the sack. He'd have tossed it out of bounds or at somebody's feet rather than risk the interception. He's more athletic than Eli, but he doesn't have Eli's cajones. Obviously, that's merely my opinion - but it's mine and it can't be taken away.
