Add Dan Fouts to his list of non elite QB's as well

Phil is entitled to his opinion, but he seems way off base on his comments. Dan Marino, Dan Fouts and Warren Moon are hall of fame qb's with phenominal stats to back them. But then he states A. Rodgers, P. Manning and Tom Brady are elite qb's. Could you imagine if the great qb's of the past played in the league today with the rules to benefit offenses? Marino would throw for 6,000 yards... I'll chalk up Phil's statements as to not putting much thought into it and just speaking what was on his mind at the moment.

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."

The fact that we won with Hoss is a combination of things. Excellence in coaching, and player execution of that game plan, along with the added dimension Hoss brought with his legs. I know you've thrown a lot of praise at our o-line back then but if my memory is correct, Hoss got the crap beat out of him despite being able to run.

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.

C'mon, how is it contradictory? If Eli sees the pressure he tries to avoid it. Of course he doesn't always see it though.

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???
