Phil Simms is jealous. Its pretty obvious. All he is doing is proclaiming this to the world.
LOL at Simms.....LOLOL ROFL LMAO @ Simms.
Interesting soundbite/bumper they are playing on Sirius from John Madden - Im paraphrasing a bit here:
"Eli Manning is absolutely an elite quarterback. I don't know if in the history of the NFL that there has ever been a quarterback that was elite ALL the time. He's won too many big games... he's done too many good things not to be considered elite."
"...gently down the loser stream!!"
I absolutely think we can win a game with David Carr at quarterback.
I also believe there is no way in hell we would have won the Super Bowl in 2007 without Plaxico. If Eli didn't have Plax that year it would have been real ugly around here.
Anyway, why is it people feel the need to try and rip Phil. Phil is #1 color guy on CBS, and he gets paid to talk about football. All the fuss is silly.
Besides some guys are big Simms fans and others love Eli. To each his own.
But I agree with you that it has helped him to not miss a game so it is a positive thing. Simms even acknowledge it, by admitting that if he had played that way he would have had a better career.
No on the other hand I remember talking to a casual friend last year who happens to be a Giants fan and I mentioned how well Eli was playing. His response was he didn't like because he plays like he's afraid to take a hit. His words not mine.
just cause he might not be elite doesnt mean he is a bad QB, why is it his biggest fans translate it as such???
