All the great QB's have a better than 2 to 1 ratio, except our boy of course. He's only done it twice I believe.
In today's league with these rules, its a minimum expectation. Rodgers, Brady, Brees, Peyton, Ben...those guys are 3, 4, 5, 6 to one or even better.
I mean Russell Wilson has more TD's and fewer Int's than Eli. And he doesn't have our weapons.
This does drive me nuts about Eli.
it's not as simple as just expecting a good TD/Int ratio...it's about when and how those Int's vs TD's happen.
Also I still don't know if Nicks and Cruz are making Eli look good or Eli is making Nicks and Cruz look good, If I had to guess though I think it's the later.
So I would argue with your "take chances" theory. If that was the case, he'd have a lot more TD's.
you can find something wrong with every single player in the league if you stare at their stat line long enough but I don't think that means anything, Eli does not have a problem with picks when it matters...when his team falls behind does he maybe make some poor decisions or try to force things to work with bad results? yes he does....but that's not something I'm going to get on him for because this whole entire offense of ours relies extremely heavily on him.
give Mark Sanchez Cruz and Nicks and Bradshaw and the jets record would look exactly the same as it does now in my opinion, Eli makes our receivers better...so the "he has weapons" argument doesn't fly with me sorry.
