I love Eli. I hate his boneheadedness....especially when it extends over periods of time.
If Eli's career goes similar to what he is currently doing even with another SB win I dont think as a pure passer and overall QB talent that he will ever be a top 5 in the history of the game. Top 10 most likely.
But he will be the best Giants QB for sure. Thats not slighting Simms, Connerly, YA, at all. It just is what it is. The other guys may have been more athletically talented but Eli is a different type of QB he gets it done and the rings are there.
Measure Twice......Cut Once"
But I will say this. Staubach spent his first four years after college in the military. So in the same period guys like Eli were accumulating stats, he was serving our country.
So you're saying you hate America now?????
And Staubach played on a better team.
Stop the self loathing and say it with me ... ELI PUT THE E-L-I IN ELITE!
The two best QB's in NFL history are playing right now. One in Foxborough, and the other in Denver.
Eli Manning during his first 8 seasons:
185 TD, 129 INT, 57.6 completion percentage, 27,577 yards, playng in 121 games during that time period with 69 wins and 51 losses, 3 division titles, 2 Super Bowl wins
Montana during his first 8 seasons:
141 TD, 76 INT, 62.4 completion percentage, 17,184 yards, playing in 87 games during that time period with 57 wins and 30 losses, 4 division titles, 2 Super Bowl wins
I dont really see why you say that taking about all time greatness is twisted, these are your own words:
