    Bruschi was drinking too many brewskies when he made that comment. That was too easy .
    No one remembers who came in second.

    I think the gmenhq writer thinks that Rodgers was the QB both times we beat GB to get to the SB. However, we beat a future HoFer in Favre the first go around.

    Oh I know who he meant. Its just that the author is an idiot. To bring up the Pro Bowls is nonsense. He was a substitute in all 3 when other QB's didn't want to go.
    Its just ridiculous. Bringing up Edwards record for God's sake? He was a good assistant coach and not a very good HC. But he played in the league a long time and had success both as a player and a coach. he obviously knows a heck a lot about the NFL. You can disagree...that's fine. But to tell fans (none of whom every won a single game in the NFL as a HC or assistant, including this writer) that his record as a HC disqualifies him from commenting on current players is rather ......."Cultish".

    Herm Edwards rarely makes sense, and he's about as articulate as Mumbles from **** Tracy!
    If it weren't for THE FUMBLE, nobody would have ever remembered his name.
    Eli's career stats to date are very impressive, and no amount of Eli hating can change that fact.
    ESPN is like FOX news in that they have an agenda (Bad Mouth The Giants Whenever Possible) and they stick to the script.

    While I agree that we shouldn't personally insult Herm, he also shouldn't insult Eli by telling him to sit at the kids table or whatever, that's just a low blow.

    Without getting into the "is Eli elite or not" conversation, I completely disagree with the thought that there can only be a certain number of elite QBs in the league. They aren't exactly competing against each other. If 8 QB's are playing dominant football year in and year out and carving up defenses, then there are 8 elite QB's.

    I am not trying to say that there are 8 elite qb's, I am just using the number 8 as an example because it was used in the article. Nor am I claiming that Eli is elite or not.

    Frankly, I am so sick of the word elite, and think it should be banned from the boards. lol
