    Yes but that kind of talk doesn't grab the ratings.

    Me thinks he still burns up inside and has some animosity towards the Giants.
    jealous my foot, he was injured.

    he had the best SB performance of any QB, (not just in the 4th qtr when the other team is tired and in soft zone with a lead)

    when Simms went 22-25 during SB XXI 2 incomplete passes were flat out drops and 1 he threw away to avoid a sack. he was perfection. no QB will ever touch his SB performance.

    Yes, but it ended ugly between him and Gmen.

Our O line and run game was so great that when Hoss, a guy that ran a 4.28 40 took over, he rarely had to run.

    I think Phil Simms would have had issues with this system under Gillbride. I am not saying that he would not have gotten it but it would have taken him longer than Eli. Heck, it took Phil awhile to get the system he was in down and that one was simple as it gets.

    I am not spewing angst at Phil but in my opinion, Eli is a better QB.
    Phil threw for 4000 yards before Bavaro was on the team. His top pass catcher had 48 catches that season.
    And no insult but Eli doesn't have the intestinal fortitude to have played for Parcells back then. Takes a unique guy to deal with Bill.

    and yet if eli throws 1 td the whole game you all call him elite and best player on the team. come on now be fair
    It works both ways. If Eli had that defense with the greatest defensive player of all time, that running/play action game, HOF coach in Bill P. and possibly the greatest coach of all time in Bill B., do you really think Eli wouldn't possibly equal or exceed what Phil did? Eli has shown he probably could have taken the hits QB's did then. Maybe Phil wouldn't have been so accurate in this receiver option route offense and maybe Eli would be more accurate in the receiver single route offense Phil played behind.
