    I found it interesting how some were saying it's technology and not the individual that behaves in this (cultist) manner. I've never seen any other player propped up like this. It's truly amazing to see the sensitivity surrounding this guy. Nothing will satisfy them unless you believe he's the second coming.

    It's definitely kinda nuts....
    I think it's because of the kind of person Eli is. He's easy to defend!! lol

    I stayed out of that thread because it was rather chaotic.....but we all know how Morehead tends to, and likes to push buttons. He looks for reactions usually, and SOMEtimes you can even put HIM on snap-watch, until he flips....
    Not that i know anything about that.....but i know a little something about that []</P>

    Eli is a likable guy (just like Morehead []) which makes him easy to root for, but of course his demeanor and look also have people on his case since he doesn't exactly have that Ford-tough look.

    I enjoy watching Morehead wing these guys up. It's very funny.

    It pisses me off were arguing over just how good Eli is, and not how bad The Giants defense was and ways the Giants should fix it.

    Then you have no understanding about what the point was. My problem is not Eli. Eli is a top 5 QB. My problem is that in the mind of the Cultist, if you say anything that they can twist into a threat to Eli's pure greatness, they jump down your throat.</P>

    [/quote]But saying Eli carried this team doesnt make one a "cultist". Cause I agree with you but I also think "Eli carried this team" most of the time.

    No it doesn't. But calling someone an Eli hater simply because you don't think he "carried the team on his back" does.</P>

    Hey, the way I see it if gets people talking it's all good.

    I think it's fair to say that our passing attack carried this team for the most part last year. And if people want to say it was our quarterback, I'm cool with that because they always get too much credit as well as blame. He had a couple rough games at the end but obviously he had a great year.

    Some people see last season as vindication for years past, but I don't. This was his first really good season IMO. I don't really care if people think he's better than this guy or that guy. He's a winner and that's all that matters. We're fortunate to have him as our QB.

    Exactly. They take everything about Eli way too personally. It seems a bit unhealthy. It's like they have this connection and deep-seeded inferiority complex - one which I don't recall ever seeing before over an athlete. I mean we are not talking about a player like Wayne Gretzky or Michael Jordon here.

    I thought you made a great point about LT. We knew what we had in LT. We knew he made everyone around him better. But that didn't diminish the effort of his teammates or our appreciation for them.

    These Giants, under Tom Coughlin, preach a team approach. But for whatever reason some of Eli's fans have stronger feelings for him over our team.

    It's very hard to disagree with that. I'm thinking a lot of people are going to be upset by our cuts this year.

    Eli has fans that have thrown everyone and their mother under the bus since day one. That's what got me started on them.
