    Statistically, Eli isn't too far off from Brady at similar points in their careers (Brady has higher comp% and waaaay fewer INTS), but yards and TDs are actually very close.

    Peyton is a bit ahead of the both of them.

    Eli is not a stat guy in the regular season.
    Uh..go Giants?

    according to the late Vince Lombardi you draft a QB 5 years before you need him

    And we're all born a blank slate.

    Run the numbers for yourself. I speak the truth. I believe when I did it, I ended up disregarding the rookie years for both Eli and Brady (I counted full seasons only).

    Because Eli doesn't put up the stats Brady does, I cannot see him overtaking him in the stats position.

    The first 7 years are indeed closer than what you would expect. Brady and Brees both turned it on after 7 years. Eli's 7th year was in 2011 and that's when he turned it on. That's why I got super excited. I was hoping that Eli would continue the trend that Brady and Brees set. Then there was 2012. I think that's why we're all overstating our disappointment. Had Eli not had a brilliant 2011 and kept the status quo, i don't think the Eli talk would have been as negative.

    I don't get your point but this theory seems about right for Eli, it took about 5 years for him to finally get it..

    I'll take the INT's given our offense. Thats just part of the package.

    Eli at age 32 is a good QB, even a very good QB. He's been the QB for two Giants teams that have won SB's. This is a good thing.
    Eli at age 32 is far from a great QB and not in the league with some of the players he's being compared to in this thread.

    BTW...I love you all.
