    When people say Eli is inconsistent or any other "not so good" generalized statement, it's like saying that Cruz gets alligator arms sometimes after he's been hit or Cruz is not a physical receiver. Yet, the uproar over such a statement about Cruz is nowhere near the uproar that saying Eli is "something".

    So yes, it's very much about Eli's groupies and not Eli the player.

    Haha, twice in a week. Shortly after college, I turned down some jobs to become a ski bum in Utah. At the time, the big shot free-skiier was Jonney Mosely. The picture was him doing an 360 - iron cross/mute grab during a mogul run. He forever changed proper skiing events by adding a free-skiing element to them.

    Actually Buff, I never made that comment. But if you like I can pretend I did just for you. Of course you'll owe me one.

    I saw it the minute you mentioned skiing.

    Never skied Utah. Been to Colorado a few times, Breckenridge, Vail, Keystone and Winter Park come to mind.
