Hall of Famer
I will say if Herm Edwards an actual Coach and Player is not qualified to comment on Eli as an expert , then none of us are.
I often chuckle at the Eli crowd when they think they are more qualified then Simms and Warner for example.

I don't mind negative Eli remarks coming from the "experts"...... for some reason, Eli usually has a good season once "experts" start down playing his abilities.

I agree about with your generation point, but if you look at the three years I listed, they were all putting up comparable stats, with the exception of Montana as he was pretty much at the end of the road, but I wasn't about to leave Joe Montana off the list. So for that time period I do think its fair to say that there were 7 "elite" quarterbacks in the league. I believe Peyton Manning and Aaron Rodgers are not in the same "generation", but they are both certainly elite QB's at this current time.

I wouldn't even say he made a foolish point, I saw nothing wrong with that at all

Wow. I was actually in agreement with you until your last comment. You are not sure that Eli is a top 10 QB in the NFL? You my friend have jumped the shark. Please name 10 QB's better than Eli...

I guarantee when he gives you his list of top ten, it includes RG3, Andrew Luck, Russel Wilson, and/or Kapernick. Lol

You don't have to be drafted together to be in the same generation in my opinion.
So while the were slightly different in age, with the exception of Montana, they were all veterans playing at a pretty high level in 1992--1994.

I didnt see the list but i assume your reffering to rodgers, but regardless that statement that Eli beat another qb twice in his building to get to the superbowl isnt right. Now I love Eli and Big Blue, but just wanted to point out that he's never beaten the same qb twice in the postseason besides brady in both superbowls. Other than that its been Garcia, Romo, Favre, Ryan, Rodgers, and Smith.
