I am very happy with Eli and hope the 2011 version comes back next year. However, Tom Brady is maybe The Greatest QB in history of NFL.
Doogone it, I really want the 2011 version of Eli Manning back.
with the plays i was referring to.
the plays i pointed out were one time 99% lucky plays that ain't never gonna happen again ....
and impossible to coach against....and before you go cultist on me...i saw them too ....
and they were both chuck-n-duck prayers....and we all know it.
without those 2 miracles (MM and Tyree) ...we don't get those rings....period...
and Belichick and Brady have a couple more.
and neither play is a testament to Coughlin's coaching genius nor Belichick's lack of it.
"the catch" was just a decent ending to a great game winning drive....nothing lucky or special about it....
and has nothing whatsoever to do with what i was talking about.

Parcells made Belichick........but in some very important aspects Belichick made Parcells
as for Landry and Lombardi
Landry was not about to turn down the Dallas job
and Lombardi actually tried to get out of his contract with Green Bay when he got wind that Jim Lee Howell was leaving but could not
