    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".
    Eli was only an alternate last year.

    I wasn't old enough to really remember Herm play (I was 9 or 10 when he retired), but I do agree you can't necessarily point to a player's career as a negative about their analysis. However, I think you can look at their coaching credentials to a certain degree.

    You should also drop the cult thing; it's just inflammatory and doesn't do anything positive for a discussion topic that is difficult enough already to keep civil.

    He was like 3rd alternate last year. Bob, Rodgers and Ryan dropped out. In fact, all 3 QBs on the NFC team were alternates.

    No doubt. 2013 is the only year he was an alternate, though.

    I can understand when different people have their different ideas on who they would call elite or not. The topic is truly debateable. But to say that Eli cannot order off the menu is crazy. A bit drastic, to be exact. The debate over elite, seems to sometimes come to be a popularity debate. I understand that Eli might not win a popularity contest, but his numbers will. Eli is clutch. Just ask Deion Sanders. I know, he started out being sarcastic about Eli but when it came to the Eli argument, he shut a lot of people down!!!!! Herm wouldn't know a QB if he was hiking the ball to one. That is not his specialty. I want to know what "Chuckie" thinks.
