    That's fair.

    Just saying, every GM / Coach wants "their guy" and prove him to be successful. Who knows what Reese would have done in 2004. Looking at what he has done since though, I dont think he would of traded up to get Eli. We would of most likely landed Ben.

    Like how many music artisst absolutely suck but they are successful because their music sells any way....
    successs does not always equate to talent and or level of skill
    Meh.Your analogy doesn’t fit in reagrd to Eli Manning at all. He doesn’t suck and his passes don’t simply get caught because the recievers grab them. He places the ball. He dictates games when he is on like he was during those SuperBowl runs. Elis talent and ability in the clutch was the most important things during our SuperBowl runs. He exhibited a command and calm over the game in postseason that Peyton Manning never has in playoffs, including during his SuperBowl victory. Very few QBs have ever dominated a postseason the way Eli Manning did in 2011. Joe Flacco may be doing that right now but Peyton Manning never has.

    The ELIte debate really doesn’t fit in regard to Eli Manning as a regular season QB. He is never going to touch Rodgers, Peyton and Brady during that time. It doesn’t mean that he is not an awesome QB because he is. However, he is one of the truly ELIte post season QBs in NFL history and that is fine with me.

    meh...you didnt read my other responses to this thread. Eli doesst suck...never said he did. If he stays the same kind of QB he is now more rings wont make him "better". He will have a more successful careert but he will be the same type of QB he already is.
    Which BTW is good enough for me. I am not bashing Eli

    I think some people need to realize that he doesn't have to have numbers like Rodgers and Brady in the regular season in order to be great.. He doesn't, so that's not even a debate. Eli also doesn't have to be considered a top 5 quarterback to be considered great either. He's been a great quarterback for us and that's all that should matter. We have way too many debates comparing him to other quarterbacks. Eli is Eli and we should be happy about that.

    It didn't sound like it.

    They were discussing 1st ballot HOF'ers vs the rest. Carton believes only first ballot guys are elite. I think that is fair.

    No, he has more time to prove he is better than many QB that you've listed earlier.

    I highly doubt Eli or any quarterback in the league right now will surpass Tom Brady or Peyton Manning. Maybe in rings, which is good enough for me lol. If you're talking about stats, forget it.

    Eli has to get better to actually be better. Right now he is as he has been for the last 5 years. Which is still ok with me. he doesnt have to be better than any other QB for me.
