If Eli threw 5 ints in one game he would get ripped to shreds.
He is playing average this year, because he is elite one game and bad the next. Last year he was the reason they won a superbowl, no matter what people think. It was all on his shoulders and he delivered. His 1,219 yards is an NFL record for a single postseason, and his 9TDs to 1 INT is pretty damn good as well. Im not sure many other QBs can do that in the postseason against the best teams in the NFL. Average he is not.
I'll defend him when the criticisms are outrageous or just plain inaccurate, and I'll weather absurd claims when some homer tries to compare him with Brees or in one case even Eli.
