In 2012 without VJ and with an aging Gates and an awful Oline he had 26 TDs and 15 Int and a QBR of 88.6 and a 64% completion rate. It was his second lowest QBR since becoming a starter.
    +1. Rivers had a down year last year, but he was still very good. He's been struggling relative to his previous success, but compared to everyone else, he's still been playing great.

    its funny when another QB has a 26td 15 int QBR in the 80's type season, they arent very good but when its eli year in and year out numbers he is a HOF QB. i guess its all perception.

    Bo's situation was a bit different. Bo felt TB tried to sabotage his baseball career.

    I didn't see it as a demand, he just didn't want to play for them. He asked them not to draft them and they did anyway.

    MUCH better.

    Too bad Bo didn't just stay in baseball. Probably would have had a great career.

    It's funny when Eli wins not one but two Super Bowls his fans still question if he's a good player.

    that may be but he used baseball like Elway to not go to a team he didn't want to be with......not saying either was wrong

    "Asking" in this case is the same thing as demanding.
    SD did the right thing by drafting him as they got the guy they wanted plus a first and a 4th.
    The whole thing was unseemly.

    I have never heard a single Giants fan question as to whether or not Eli was a good player.
