I will say this, if we were talking about Big Ben, then I would agree, his defense won those championships.
The guy is a very good QB. I like the fact that my team has a very good QB. But this nonsense about "all time greatness" is so twisted its not even worthy of discussion.
But here we are. Discussing it as if its not based on complete delusion. No one (outside a few nutty Eli cultists) think Eli has anything close to the standing some of you guys are giving him.
Ok....20 years from now when the NFL network is doing their top 10 QBs from this era Eli will be one of them as will Brady, Brees, Rodgers, Ben...etc...
You guys are serioulsy nuts over this......wow...Fun to watch and read though .
You guys are the Real Housewives of the Giants Message Boards...
Measure Twice......Cut Once"
Heck I'll man up ... here are my list of QBs that are even in a discussion with Eli (all time):
1) Joe Montana (my personal fave)
2) Johnny Unitas
3) Bart Starr
4) Tom Brady
5) John Elway
6) Brett Favre
7) Dan Marino
8) Steve Young (tough because he only had 8 years as a starter but his starting stats with SF were tremendous)
9) Peyton Manning
10) ELI MANNING BABY!
#10 ALL TIME OH YEAH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I can't read any more right now...got something beckoning me towards it. But...I will say this. It really irks me when people state their "opinion" as if it is "fact". I would venture to say, too, that it appears to me, and I can't be sure, but the people who are the biggest culprits come-off as people who have never really played the game and are more like Sheldon from BBT. They have much knowledge about the game from books or TV, but nothing compares to learning the game on the field...IMO.
