After 2011, those that thought Eli was better certainly had a case - especially if they felt that "good" Eli would continue playing at a high level. But now, with Eli struggling and having a sub-par year, putting Eli in Ben's category is becoming more and more far fetched.
For arguments sake, if Eli turns it on again at the end of the year, it will be same story of inconsistency that has plagued him throughout his career.
I expect Eli to have a big game tomorrow. He's due. And he tends to play the best against the better teams.
there were plays in that 1990 playoff run that Hoss made with his legs that were game changing
some in the SB game as well
plays I am not sure Simms would have made
do I think Hostetler was a better QB than Simms? absolutely not
but that playoff run may have looked a bit different without him in there
that 49er team was tough ....and Phil struggled a bit against them earlier that season
thats not to say Phil would have lost that game......but Hoss did a great job fighting for first downs with his legs when he needed to ......and threw some balls dead on the money when he needed to as well
even with Phil in that SB game it very well may have come down to a FG......earlier in the season the Giants lost to the Bills 17-13 in a game where Simms and Hoss both struggled
I think Hoss even looked a bit better than Simms that day coming off the bench cold as an ice cube
