Phil threw for 4000 yards. Check how many guys caught as many as 50 balls for him.....Zero.
Check how many times he was sacked..............55.
Phil got killed in 1984. And look at the production.
This was the O line that gave up 3 safeties in one quarter.
Accuracy is measured by what you see on the field, not any stat. Completion % is effected by about 50 different things. The quality of the WR's and their ability to get open for one.
My real point is that suggesting that Eli isn't an "elite" QB isn't an insult to Eli. Its not a slam. Its not sour grapes. Its just one guy's opinion who knows a lot more than we do about playing QB in the NFL.
And he's using his own definition of "elite". Because its very subjective.
To me there are only 3 right now. Brady, Peyton and Brees. i don't include Rodgers yet because I don't love his mental toughness. He's a great talent and a great player but he's still a little mentally inconsistent.
The guy did great and there is no argument, but his supporting cast was all time great.

100 pages here we come!
"They come to the line of scrimmage and the first thing they do is start looking for me....I know, and they know. When they’d find me they’d start screaming: 56 left ! 56 left!....So there’s this thing I did. After the play was over I’d come up behind them and whisper: don’t worry where I am. I’ll tell you when I get there."
