"When I was 15, I could not believe how dumb my father was.....when I was 25, I could not believe how much he had learned in 10 years"
1st to use the phrase "In Reese we trust"
What was the difference you cited?
As to he draft drama; he was a man and completely responsible, regardless of who advised him.
Still bothers me about him.
It's a privilege to play in the NFL, and he through he was more privileged than others

"I was disappointed that Eli did not lead his team in that brawl. I'm not saying I would have completely lost respect for him as a leader if I were on the squad but that kind of suspect behavior would definitely have me eyeing him sideways"...elitikistrahan
We always had good pass protection, it's the run blocking that has been in decline, but pass protection hasn't been spotty until last year. Like I said last year wasn't that bad relative to other teams struggles. Cutler and Rivers would have killed for last years pass protection that Eli had. You could surmise that Eli is just better at getting rid of the ball quickly, which is in part true, but the line did it's part in pass protection.
In 2011 the line was A+++ for the Giants, not so much in SD.
I thought Eli regressed last year too, but he by no means looked awful for the entire season. In fat he regressed only in light of how well he performed in 2011. In 2011 he looked like a HOF. Will Eli be the QB we saw in 2011 or is 2012 more representative of the play we should expect?
I say a healthy Nicks and an improved 3rd receiver and an upgraded receiving threat at TE bode well for his future. I think improved run blocking will do wonders for him as well. I'm predicting 2011 performance levels will be the new norm for Eli.
