    Saying the defence played "oustanding" is a bit of a stretch. They played a good game, but nothing spectacular like SB 42. Aside from the safety and the series to end the game, the Patriots had a total of 7 possessions. Simply looking at the 17 points given up can be misleading. The defence blew the coverage on the welker incompletion, but not allowing the pats to score when they were up 17-12 and 17-15 kept the game within reach.

    You cannot give up 16 straight completions and play "oustanding".

    El has 2 more rings than Herm does. And Herm has been in the NFL for 30 years.
    He's just a jealous fool

    The entire Eli crowd drives me nuts.
    I had a discussion with them a few months ago where they claimed that the pass wasn't on Welker but on Brady...thus making the point that Brady isn't that good thus meaning that Eli is as good as Brady.
    NOW..
    We now have a member of Team Eli making the case that Welker dropped the pass, thus meaning our defense sucked, thus meaning that Eli carried the defense in that game.

    I truly love you guys and your collective desperation. .....It never ends.

    He was simply stating the defense wasn't outstanding. Considering they allowed 16 straight completions it isn't far fetched.


    You are reading things that aren't there and are basically attacking a straw man argument.


    Good job.

    Take your own advice then. Don't like the pro Eli comments? Don't read them.

    Now, where's the fun in THAT, I ask you?

    I'd rather just obsess on your obsession if it's all the same to you. At least until draft day.

    For the record.....I am not "following" you around. One only has to open a 26 page Eli thread to find you and your 13 pages worth of posts.
