    Big Simms fan but lets not overstate his playoff career. His stats were 157-279 1679 yards 10 TD, 6 INT. W-L of 6-4. Was injured for playoffs in 1981 and 1990.

    Can't believe this thread is still going.

    Don't know if that's good or bad.
    For a Giant fan that I personally knew: My mom. May she smile and be delighted whenever her favorite player - Victor Cruz - scores a touchdown and does his salsa dance.

    Thank you mom for everything! Let's Go Giants!

    well true but when you have osi tuck and jpp on your dline , it sorta equals that out., and simms didnt have a lot of weapons to work with just a bunch of lunch pail guys, no stars to speak of on offense.

These EX Giants are going after a guy who has shown he belongs with the "elite" talks. Not to mention, last year he had the greatest 4th quarter season in history.

    My problem with Simms quote is that he said it after a bad 3 games for Eli. He certainly didn't say it at the beginning of the season.
    First of all not calling Eli elite doesnt mean squat because Simms is a Giant. All it means is that he doesnt hink he is elite. Obviously Simms holds that definition to a higher standard then many do. He did say he would be a HOFr......
    When Eli had his "bad" more like terrible 3 weeks maybe it convinced Simms that he is not elite in his eyes...
    Then again.....why really care so much. If you think Eli is elite that should be good enough

    I'm not trying to make an argument against simms, I think picking btwn Eli and Simms is lame, they were both great and two of my favorites, but I disagree with you about Simms not having a lot of weapons to work with, Joe morris was 1,400 yard back at one point, Bavaro was one of the best TE's in the game, and the giants had an excellent offesive line. I always felt Manuel was very good reciever as well, so to say he had little to no weapons is wrong imo.

    wait, i could have sworn I've seen you make big deals out of people saying eli beat brady, favre, rodgers, etc etc bc "the qbs arent facing each other, they're facing the defenses."
    isnt that the definition of hypocritical? to apply a set of standards to something while ignoring it for something else?

    may not have been a big spot but the giants did beat them the Dolphins in 1990, 20-3 in week 3...wonderphil!
