    Not that I agree with MS on Ryan and Freeman (who is becoming the sidekick to Doug Martin now) being near Eli in the big picture but one does have to admit that winning championships is easier to do with the Giants and Steelers vs. the Falcons and Bucs. The Giants and Steelers build better teams through the draft and front superior coaching all across the board. There is a reason our staff is always brought up to be poached by other teams afterall.

    So great would be Brady, Peyton, Rodgers and Brees. But that's just what rattles around in my head.
    But you said yourself that stats don't mean greatness so why is Rodgers ahead of Eli when Eli beat him in the playoffs and has more rings?

    the falcons have had very good-great rosters over the years as has the bucs, but I get ur point. I guess the next question in that line of reasoning would be "could eli/simms have won a SB(s) with those teams?"

    True, but it hasn't always been as good as it is currently. Also does that somehow diminish the accomplishments made by the Giants?

    The Falcons I'd agree with but the Bucs were lacking pretty well until this year when they hit the draft pretty big with Martin and Barron along with Jackson and Carl Nicks as FAs. I'd say the issue though with these two clubs was coaching, especially last year when Mike Smith tried to convert two huge 4th downs against us with Matt Ryan QB sneaks when he should of took the FGs. Raheem Morris was fired for a reason and it's comparisons like this that should make us thankful that we have a HC like Coughlin who gets the entire team pumped up.

    As for your scenario, I think Eli would of won at least 1 SB with either franchise but there's just some teams like the Chargers or Raiders that are such a mess that it would be near impossible to win a championship with.

    True, but it haven't always been as good as it is currently. Also does that somehow diminish the accomplishments made by the Giants?
    Less diminishes the Giants and more along the lines of saying that a lot of other teams having a slightly steeper hill to climb whether it's ineptitude in the FO and coaching staff or thin talent across the roster.

    The thread died some time ago - just a few of us scavengers gnawing on the carcass.

    What about the -24 degree Packers game, the two Super Bowls, all the other playoff games, the yards in the playoffs, the consecutive starts, the 4th quarter comebacks and touchdowns? I would think leading your team to 24 4th quarter comebacks and having the most td in the 4th quarter would be a better measure of greatness than looking at any number of throws that didn't make it to the target. In addition, you fail to ask why those throws were off, pressure, throwing lanes, etc...
    Eli's has done great things - no question. He's brought us a career's worth of memories and he still has many good years left.

    But there was no pressure on those 2 throws. And those should be easy throws to make. It's like a basketball player that can nail 3's but then frustrates the hell out of you because he misses too many easy layups.

    In 2007 Plaxico was our offensive MVP. Without him we are not winning the Super Bowl, period. And of course our defense played a huge part in that Super Bowl as well. I wouldn't have given the MVP to Eli that year. I would have given it to Justin Tuck.
